I am so grateful that I get to share my love of Jesus through Sun Valley. Every article I've written or reviewed has encouraged me to grow, and I sincerely hope this content has done the same for you! As I seek new words to share, I soak in God's guidance more consistently. To follow Jesus is to apply His teaching, which means exploring what that looks like in our modern world. Creating this content inspires me to go deeper into His Word and think about what it means to love others.

If you're new here, I want you to know that we're here for you. All of Sun Valley's content is about loving God and loving people - and you are one of those people. We want to reach you in whatever stage of life you're going through. To reflect that, I decided to highlight the most-read article from each of our "Read" categories.

Without further ado, here are some of Sun Valley's top articles of 2022:
