Welcome to “The Best of 2020!”
I get it. We’ve probably all made the joke that 2020 has been so miserable and difficult that any future bad experiences will be “so 2020,” but I want to take a sober moment and remind ourselves that 2020 has been exactly what God wanted it to be.
That’s right. It’s been exactly what God wants it to be.
Now, it’s true that uncomfortable, hard, painful, and even very sad things have happened this year, but that doesn’t change Who God is and the fact that — because we’re all sinners — we all deserve so much worse.
That means — from the eternal perspective — 2020 has been amazing! And — if we’re being honest — there have been a lot of really amazing things about 2020.
And we’d like to countdown the top 3 most amazing things to happen in 2020 . . . at least from Truth.Love.Parent.’s perspective.
So over the next three episodes, I’ll be sharing the most popular, record-breaking shows from this year, and I’ll also start each show by sharing a world-wide blessing that I believe Christians everywhere have received.
But before I get started, I want to personally invite you to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Parler, Instagram, and YouTube. I’ll likely be pretty active over the holiday season, and I’d love to have you join me.

As always, our episode notes and transcripts will be available on our blog, TakingBackTheFamily.com
And — with that said — here we go.
Worldwide blessing #3 for 2020: I think all of the ups and downs of this year have done a wonderful job reminding us of the importance of hope in Christ.
Too many people this year have been living in fear. Others have been living in anger. And each of these grows from our innate desire to control our surroundings, and — when we can’t control everything the way we want— we get angry or afraid or depressed.
But when our hope is in Christ, we don’t have to try to control our lives. We don’t have to live in fear, and we don’t have to be mad or sad when things don’t go the way we’d prefer.
Praise the Lord that the circumstances of 2020 have reminded His people how important it is to live in the hope of Christ!
That is an amazing blessing of 2020. Thank you, Lord for it
Now — on the TLP side of things — all of our episodes are downloaded multiple times every year — sometimes every day. But the third most popular episode of 2020 is episode 331, “Why Does My Family Argue? | and how do we stop.”
I suppose none of you are surprised to hear that this episode was so popular. With all the extra family time, no doubt we laughed more and cuddled more . . . and probably argued more.
It’s definitely something with which every family struggles.
So, whether you missed it the first time or not, let’s learn how God equips our families to stop all the unnecessary arguing.
