I’m really grateful for how much God has helped me grow in this past year. I’m thankful for all the support I have gotten, and all the things that I have learned. I’ve loved interacting with everyone who has stopped by my site, and especially enjoy having awesome discussions in the comments πŸ˜€πŸ’ͺ

Thanks to all 49!!!! of my followers (46 from WordPress, 3 email). When I began, I said I would be happy if just like five people read my stuff, I never thought I’d make it here. Thanks guys, you are awesome.

Here’s some fun facts to celebrate!

  • This is my 76th post 😱
  • I’ve gotten views from 25 different countries including places like Turkey, British Virgin Islands, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, and Morocco.

Why I named my blog “Lead Me to Wisdom.”

When I decided I wanted to start this blog, I spent a couple of weeks playing around with possible titles. Unfortunately, a lot of my favorites had already been claimed, so I had to work around that. After I had some that I was satisfied with, I ran them by a friend, who told me which ones stood out to her. Out of those, I chose the one that I felt would best fit the theme that I planned to go with, which is basically growing in Christ. I also wanted something that indicated hey, I’m just a learner, I’m no teacher, I’m just passing on what God is teaching me.

“Lead Me to Wisdom” is the prayer of my heart, and it’s my cry to God in every piece that I publish. Not only does it represent my desire, but it serves as a constant reminder to me to be humble because I’m just a follower too, trying to walk in the footsteps of the Good Shepherd.

(Shout out to M.K. Aneal for asking why I chose my blog name ☺)

So thank you again everybody! I hope to continue blogging for many years to come, and also to keep getting your views, comments, and (when it comes to my fellow bloggers) posts in my feed!
