Top Ten Posts of 2014


Since this is a joint blog, I thought it would be interesting to see whether David or I had the most highly read articles of 2014.

Want to see the results?

I was surprised to see how not all of these were even written in 2014, but they were circulated in some circles enough to land them on the list:

10.  Six Reasons Why Mormons Are Beating Baptists in Church GrowthDavid

9.  Living Without Sex: How Christian Singleness Doesn’t Mean Ignoring the Hunger for Sex - Nancy

8.  I’m a White Republican Raising a Black Child – Deal with ItNancy

7.  What This White Mom Did to Her Black Daughter’s Hair: Bantu KnotsNancy

6.  The Wheels Are Coming Off the Sexual RevolutionDavid

5.  How to Live in a World in Which Bill Cosby Might be a Serial RapistNancy

4.  A White Mom’s Plea to Others Giving Advice about her Black Daughter’s Hair - Nancy

3.   Yes, There Is Evidence God ExistsDavid

2.  How My Daughter Sabotaged a Books-a-Million “Fifty Shades of Grey” Display - Nancy

1. Three Reasons Why The Giver is the Best Christian Film Since NarniaDavid

Thanks for reading in 2014, and we look forward to an even bigger 2015.  Thanks to you!
