1,000,000 Hits!

Dear Readers,

Today Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life reached a milestone. We have now received over one million total hits since we first started four years ago on September 17, 2012!

During the four months our modest little blog was online in 2012, it received just over 3,000 hits, averaging 30 hits per day. It has greatly increased in traffic every year since.

Spiritual Insights for Everyday Life currently offers well over 250 articles providing insight and inspiration on a wide variety of subjects, practical, biblical, and spiritual. It seems that you, our readers, are finding this material helpful: we are now averaging nearly 2,000 hits per day!

We would like to thank all of our readers and followers, and everyone who has linked to us and recommended us to family members, friends, and acquaintances. We would also like to thank all of the people who have posted comments and questions here, making this blog into a living—and lively!—spiritual community. And of course, we would like to thank the people who have submitted Spiritual Conundrums that prompted many of the more popular (and sometimes controversial!) articles on this website.

It is truly our joy to offer spiritual insights for everyday life to a growing number of spiritual seekers and fellow travelers.

Godspeed on your spiritual journey!

    Congrats on your milestone – even though I have not read very many posts – I usually enjoyed skimming the comments your blog left on the culture monk’s blog back when his blog was lively.
    Anyhow / may God continue to bless your blog and all that you or family does ….

      Hi prior,

      Thanks! Ah yes, Culture Monk. Haven’t been over there for quite some time, but it was a nice place to hang out when I was there. Meanwhile, it’s always good to hear from you whenever the spirit moves you to drop by.

        Well thanks and hope to visit more regularly in 2017! I don’t think culture monk is blogging very much anymore –
        Oh and actually I will be back later because I actually have a quick question for you- but you might have it in your archives ….

        • Lee says:

          Hmm, yes, I just went over there and took a look. His last post was back in May. And it’s a rather depressing one. Sounds like he wasn’t having much fun blogging anymore. Too bad.

          Feel free to fire away on your question if you don’t immediately find it answered in the archives. And even if there’s something already on the blog about it, I am happy to point people to posts that may have “hidden gems” in them on various topics.

          cool – be back later- and thanks –

    Congrats Lee!
    I feel that this is a win for everybody here who is looking for a deeper understanding of Christianity, and for those interested in spiritual thoughts in general. Please continue these awesome posts!

      Hi Brian,

      Thank you! Glad to see you still kicking around and still enjoying the posts. I have way too much fun writing and discussing them to stop now! 😀

    Wow!! I’m so proud of you guys! 😄

    I hope the others reading this website find it as insightful, helpful, and refreshing as I have. This website has honestly helped me in various ways in terms of understanding the Bible more in depth and gaining new perspectives in general. It’s helped me to let go of those doctrines that just weren’t taught in the Bible as well as really healed me in a very personal way.

    I used to struggle with my sexuality when I was 16. It caused me great turmoil because everything I’ve heard about what was said about it made me feel dirty, unwanted, and unloved. Just left there to eventually be burning in hell because of that one aspect of my character. And honestly, no one deserves to feel that way. I know have learned to accept myself and live the best that I possibly can for God as I still do consider myself spiritual up to now, (I’m 18 now! I honestly didn’t think I’d live this long. 😂) though I don’t exactly find myself fitting with a certain ‘label’ if that makes sense?

    Thank you so much for not only giving me those insights, but that little boost as well when I was quite down. Here’s to many mores future milestones, achievements, and discoveries! ❤️

    • Lee says:

      Hi Kennedy,

      Thanks for stopping by, and thanks so much for your kind words. We appreciate it very much!

      But most of all it makes us very happy to know that we’ve helped you along in a personal way at a key rough spot in your still very young life. Here’s wishing you much more learning, insight, and spiritual growth over many more years of good and satisfying, if sometimes challenging and difficult, life here on earth—and of course, to eternity. God loves every single one of us, and wants us all to be happy both here and hereafter.
