Top Soul Needs of 2018

Your desire is to grow in trust in the Lord. That’s why the top article on Soul Shepherding’s website this year was Fear Not! 365 Days a Year with over 53,000 views.

We had 975,000 page views in 2018! We are grateful to hear from pastors and leaders that our content is helping them grow in apprenticeship to Christ–and to help others to do the same.

Our other top articles this year focused on the Father’s love, spiritual disciplines, experiencing God’s presence and solitude and silence.

We care deeply about offering you free content that’s especially geared for the souls of men and women who minister to others. In 2018, thousands found the Lectio Divina Guides to be helpful.

Here are the Top 5 articles of 2018:
