I started blogging five years ago. My friend Mags shared with me that she thought my writing could be an encouragement to others. Not long after that, on a bike ride by Nankai University (the same familiar route that I used to bike to my doctor appointments when I was pregnant with Joshua in 1996), God opened my eyes to see a parallel between Saul trying to put his armor on David and me trying to have my kids “wear my faith.” I was inspired by my friend Jenn's blog, and started my own blog from her page. After I typed up my first post The Armor Doesn't Fit, CJ's positive response encouraged me to keep going. That spring of 2010, the kids and I started our home school days by reading through the Old Testament together. And my writings then were mostly about our discussions from the life of David.
It is always interesting to me to see which posts are the most popular. I just looked back at the 10 most popular posts since I've been blogging:
