2012 was a turning point for me into a new season of life. I have one daughter now married, a son in college and my two 8th graders that I am still homeschooling. My husband is serving as worship leader at a new church and we are settling in there with our two teenagers.

I have devoted much of this year to researching and praying for guidance for Marty’s Musings. What started out as merely a family journal has taken the turn into pursuing opportunities to make my blog profitable. I’ve learned so much and met many wonderful people. My hopes and dreams for 2013 are for this blog to encourage others through my posts on both DIY projects and the personal side of our story.

Here are the 10 posts that received the most traffic (from Google Analytics for June-December 2012).
