Final Feel Good Friday: Best of Doubting Believer 2021

Friends, for almost four years, every Friday, I’ve brought you things to read, watch and listen to that are sure to make you smile. Because we all could use a little good news. It’s the longest running spiritual discipline of my life, and I hope you have, indeed, smiled, laughed and been encouraged.

But it’s time to put Feel Good Friday to bed for now. Doubting Believer has grown so much in scope, reach and participation in the past year that I’m having to make some decisions about where to put my energies.

I will continue to share good news, feel good stories and encouraging words–just not in this format. I hope YOU will continue to seek out those stories of good people making good things happen in our world.

I do hope this “Best of” roundup of Doubting Believer’s year will make you smile.


The most viewed, liked and shared Facebook post came toward the end of the year.

Looks like we all like the idea of more light. If you want to be intentional about spreading more light this year, click here > to check out my online class Light up the World.


While I had some Tiktok videos with more views, this one had the most likes and shares.
