Here's how it works:
The reason for the title is because this award should make you reflect on five bloggers who have been an encouragement, a source of love, impacted you in some way and have been a Godly example to you. Five Bloggers who when you reflect on them, you get a sense of pride and joy...of knowing them and being blessed by them.
1. Copy this post
2. Reflect on five bloggers and write at least a paragraph about each one.
3. Make sure you link to this post so others can read it and the rules.
4. Go leave your chosen bloggers a comment and let them know they've been given the award.
5. Put the award icon on your site.
It is hard to choose with so many who are worthy, so many bloggers whose blogs have inspired me, encouraged me on my walk with God, and walked hand-in-hand so to speak with me through this journey of life.
A blogger who has recently started really writing some excellent posts is my daughter Kendra. We have always shared the gift of words. She writes from her heart, and always leaves me thinking. Reading her words is just like having a conversation with her. She is deep and heartfelt. I am crazy about that girl.
My friend Leslie a/k/a Boltbabe is another blogger who always leaves me better when her blog touches my life. She is a seriously frugal person - with tips, recipes, and recently a contest to win FREE gas!
My friend Sandy is deserving of this award. She writes from the depths of her heart, and shares on her blog the things that are going on in her life, and the process of how she and the Lord walk together through it.
Fatty probably already received this award - but if so, she deserves it again. I am so happy that I got to know here in the blogosphere. Reading her blog is something I truly look forward to. When her blog name is highlighted on my google reader, I get so excited at what jewel awaits me. She is so real - and that is what I love about her!
Another blog I really enjoy is Dena's Deliberations. This is another seriously frugal blogger with neverending tips on how to keep YOUR money in YOUR pocket. She writes about funny things her kids say, recommends curriculum for homeschool moms, home-making tips, etc. We also work together - she is my manager even though we have never met face to face - and it makes life so much better working with such a super lady!
So here are my awards. Pass it on ladies - pass it on!
