Year in Review {2012}

Brooke over at Covered in Grace prompted everyone to reflect on their bloggy year and share favorite posts from 2012.  This got me to thinking...  Look how far we have come in 2012!!

We weren't even a blog in January!!  Yet, looking back, God had this blog in the works since July of 2007.  Honest.  There are posts dating that far back, unpublished but there.  Back then, this blog was titled "Path Back" and was an incredibly private and unpublished journal.  

We published our first post on Upward Not Inward in February of 2012!  Our testimonies were published that month. Did you know if you clicked on our pictures in the sidebar, you will find both of our testimonies?  Here is one of my faves from February:

Well, Hallelujuah Anyway!

March was not a steadily published month for us, but looking back I remember studying Romans pretty hardcore.  Loooooove Romans!!  Here are a few Romans posts in March:

Adoption to Sonship {Romans 8:15}
Pregnant Hope Abounds {Romans 8:18-25}
Obedience {Romans 2:1-28}
Patient Continuance {Romans 2:7}

April, the month that sealed the deal that this blog was going to be a permanent thing.  We took part in the A-Z Challenge the entire month of April.  AND, this is when Laura hopped on board with her first post:

The A-Z Challenge was a blast.  Each letter of the alphabet was challenging, yet exciting all at the same time.  The post that meant the most to me was {R}omans: 

I remember going to a bloggers event at the end of April and when asked what kind of blogger I was, I did not know how to respond.  I just remember saying, "I blog about Jesus."  Not a fashion blogger.  Not a food blogger.  Could you call me a lifestyle blogger?  Now, I know I could have said a "faith blogger."  Regardless, that event spurred this post defining the purpose of the blog in May:

And look, our first Fab Five post was in May!!

So many great June posts, this one though I needed to re-read. That's good stuff!

June also kicked off the Into the Word Link Up with Becky, Sarah, Kelly, and Kelly with this post:

Here's a great July post Laura wrote on worry and fear called What If.  Man, that's a good read!!  Another July fave would be this one called "Find Out."

In August, I posted my Bucket List!  {Yeah, I should probably update this soon!}

I also went to Women of Faith in August.  What a blast that was.  Here's my recap:

Laura posted this beautiful post in August that is really really worth the re-read:

In September, I participated in the Revive Your Marriage Series.  Here are those posts:

Prayer :: Attitude ::  Friendship ::  Praise

September was also my first #COFFEEANDJESUS.  For all you 50 Shades folks, Laura initiated discussion on this here.  Great post with great comments, too.

Do you remember our huge announcement in October?! :: THIS ::  Plus, Laura had this deep and heartfelt post on how to deal with resistance:

The last few weeks in October was a series on Esther:


November kicked off the first Saturday's Song Link Up:

Here is my favorite post from November:

December already?!  What?  

We ventured throughout December with the series "Casting Call."  This series was all Laura's brilliant idea, and it was so much fun to do.  It was a series where we dove deeper into the characters surrounding the birth of Jesus, including the animals in the manger. 

Casting Call {Joseph}
Casting Call {The Animals}

What a year!!! Can't wait to see what 2013 has in store!!!!
