Literacy Musings: The Best of 2017

Welcome back to the first linkup of 2018! I hope you all had a wonderfully, Happy New Year celebration. Our family tradition is to pray in the new year with our church family after having a night of games and snacks. It’s always so much fun!

New Year Goals

We are starting up the New Year with prayer and goals.

We always enjoy reading your posts. It’s the new year, so share your goals with us this week. I am really seeking God’s will this year as one of my goals.  I hope to my goals in detail before the month of January gets away from me.

As always, however, any of your posts related to literacy, writing, blogging tips, book reviews, and devotionals are welcome.

This year a big goal of ours at Literacy Musing Mondays is to have more participation in reading and commenting on each other’s blogs. Please commit to reading the blog next to yours when you link up. Shares and comments are such a blessing to bloggers.

Also in the comment box below this week, please feel free to include suggestions for improving our weekly linkup. We value your feedback.

Our pastor just taught on this last night. This post really blessed me and gives a solid-Biblical discussion on the birth of Jesus and why his incarnation matters to the world.

The Best Books of 2017

via Kaitlyn Bouchillon

I have my own pile of favorite books from 2017. However, I haven’t yet compiled a list to share with you. As, I browse through Kaitlyn’s I see so many books I have not read, yet. I have only read one actually. I see several that are going on my 2018 reading list.

Linkup Rules:

  • Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  • Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  • Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  • We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger’s post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone’s posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  • Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  • Tweet about the link up too.
