In case you missed any of them and to be a bit reflective as we proceed into 2014, I wanted to share the top three posts that were written last year. They cover a few of the different areas and concepts that were discussed here on The Good Steward last year and I hope that you find them helpful in your efforts this year.

- Are You Making the Time to be Creative?
I wrote this post while at the 2013 AFP International Conference after an especially insightful talk by John Legend. Please feel free to share in the comments how you keep those creative juices flowing!
