Posts with the Most – July 2014

by Larry Hehn on August 4, 2014

posts with the mostIf I had to choose a favorite time of month, this would definitely be it. I always look forward to the end of one month and the beginning of another, since that means it’s time for the Posts with the Most!

Every month I boldly explore the interwebs, compiling my favorite top blog posts to share with you, my favorite readers.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have. Be sure to say hello to these amazing bloggers when you visit, and please share any of your July 2014 faves that I may have missed, in the comment section below.

Here are the July 2014 Posts with the Most, in random order…

  • Carnival World – Billy Coffey draws life lessons from the rides at a carnival.
  • We’re having a killer summer. – Jamie the Very Worst Missionary is experiencing a private carnival of sorts, known as summer break with teenage sons.
  • Incarnated Poetry – I must admit I’ve never been a big poetry fan. But over at A Deeper Story, Nate Pyle converted me with four simple words: “You are God’s poem.”
  • The Risk of Silence – Another gem from A Deeper Story, this time penned by Micha Boyett. I haven’t been blogging much lately, and have struggled to explain why. Micha, in explaining her reasons for not blogging, has unknowingly done it for me.

And, last but not least, a special mention to Liz McLennan, aka Bellymonster, who just published her final post at Life With Bellymonster. Thank you, Liz, for your many contributions to (and unbridled enthusiasm for) the Posts with the Most!

Posts with the Most – May/June 2014

by Larry Hehn on July 6, 2014

posts with the mostThe older I get, the more the months seem to whiz by. Here we are, already halfway through 2014.

How’s it going?

Since life often does seem to go by so fast, I’m thankful for the milestones where we pause, reflect and celebrate.

This past week we had Canada’s 147th and America’s 238th birthday to cheer, and now the May/June 2014 Posts with the Most!

If you aren’t familiar with the Posts with the Most, this is the (usually) monthly feature where I compile and present my favorite blog posts from around the blogosphere for the previous month.

This time I’ve doubled up on May and June, for twice the fun!

It’s all about matching up some great blogs and bloggers with some great readers. Here are my faves for May and June 2014, in random order. Enjoy!

  • Skipping to the ending – For all those who have ever been tempted to sneak a peek at the end of the book. From Billy Coffey.
  • A Father’s Day al Fresco Fiasco – Mike Rowe (yes, the guy from Dirty Jobs) is not only a TV host and advocate of skilled trades, he’s also a gifted storyteller. Here he shares a heartwarming and hilarious story about, of all things, a family picnic table.
  • Growing to “Dad”The Late Arrival‘s Rochelle Fritsch reflects on a lifetime of getting to know her father.
  • “That’s So Typical of Christians” – Paul Wilkinson of Thinking Out Loud relates how Christians aren’t all alike.
  • Dear Student… – As an Educational Assistant, Life With Bellymonster‘s Liz McLennan has learned a few things from her students this year.

And now, as always, I’d appreciate your help. There are lots of amazing blogs and bloggers out there that I haven’t met yet. Which ones have I missed?
