2014 was a big year for BelieveWithMe.com! We overhauled the site, developed a new look and exponentially grew our readership thanks to all of you sharing the content through your social media! Here’s our top ten posts of the year…
In response to how some people categorize their marriage, I wrote He’s Not Your Best Friend. It was spicy and provocative…and unfortunately, I received more than a few emails from husbands who were tired of being roommates to their wives. The following day, I posted the “other half” of the story and gave hubbies some suggestions to revving up their lovely wives too: It Takes Two to Tango.
How I Run This House got a lot of traction — mostly because I think there is curiosity about what goes on behind our closed doors. I gave some simple strategies to running a larger than average sized household…but all of the pointers could be applied to any home management plan!
A Letter from a Loving Mom to Her Teen really struck a cord. This post is still getting shared and I regularly receive feedback from parents AND teens about how this letter changed their relationships. I learned one thing for sure….many kiddos really do not understand how much their parents love them. And lots of parents used my letter as a spring board for their own. I had no idea my little personal meltdown could have such an effect for so many moms. A beautiful silver lining to a rough day under our roof.
Give Me My Wife Back was written in response to a father who wondered whatever happened to his lovely wife once she became a mother. I think it has been helpful to more than a few thousand dads at this point.
Breastfeeding and Its Proper Place — I guess this post hit home with new moms struggling to breastfeed…been there more than a dozen times myself.
Selling Skin by Bliss – my soon to be 17 year old wrote this one in response to Kim Kardashian’s racy photographs released earlier this year. She really hit the nail on the head…calling out privileged women who choose to objectify themselves causing more sexual enslavement.
When Your Friends Parent Differently — Lots of new moms struggle with what to do when their dear friends decide to parent differently right from the onset. Sometimes these mindsets seem diametrically opposed…but that doesn’t mean your friendships have to end!
The Commiseration Committee — and as I learned this week, the Commiseration Committee is not just limited to moms…dads can be part of it too! This is one committee you don’t want to join!
Christmas Carnage – And maybe more than a few were interested to see what our Christmas morning looked like. It was heavenly. So much to be thankful for.
And my personal all time favorite blog post over the past three years still remains Special Forces Parenting. Thrill me by reading it. Give me a New Years’s SHOUT OUT by sharing it.
