β€œYou have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.β€œ

The way this works: Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog. Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them. List five things about yourself. Lastly, ask your nominees five questions. Why five? Because is the number that signifies grace.

  2. How do you see yourself as being an encouragement to others?Β  Another good question.Β  Yep.Β  Really good.Β  Perhaps by making people smile or laugh.Β  Maybe not something super important, but hey, best I can do on short notice.
  3. When was the last time someone gave you words of encouragement?Β  Hmm, testing my memory now.Β  Always making things hard.Β  Have to think all the way back to lunch!Β  Yep, that’s when it was.
  4. When you are down, what encourages you to get back up and keep pressing on?Β  Easy question finally.Β  Muffin!Β  She keeps me going.Β  Or bites my feet to get me going.
  5. Who was your greatest encourager when you first accepted Christ?Β Β  My parents.
