IFWE’s Top Ten Blogs of 2020

LinkedIn Email Print

2020 was a year of challenges, and in many ways, it was a year of sadness. Our generous blog contributors were quick to address many of the prominent issues—the pandemic, financial crisis, mask-wearing, anxiety—from a scriptural basis and offer readers encouragement, guidance, and hope. We pray that you found their words valuable through this tough time.

We’re also grateful for you, our readers and subscribers who have read, shared, and commented on our blogs throughout the year. Thanks to you, more than a million people have been blessed by our blog during 2020 alone!

Without further ado, here are the top ten articles from our staff and contributors in 2020 (not including Hugh Whelchel, to whom we dedicated his own top ten list here):
