I have just been deeply honored by a dear friend, Barbara. She has bestowed on me the Berry Sweet Blog Award!
A few years ago, Barbara was publisher and editor of the ladies' ministry newsletter at Christ Central Lake City. About that time, the passion had begun to burn in my soul to write about the things that God laid on my heart, so I submitted an article to Barbara for the next edition. Barbara's encouragement and advice during that first effort propelled me forward and gave me confidence. Her mentorship didn't stop there. She encouraged me to move forward in a leadership capacity in women's ministry, and that forward motion hasn't stopped since. Thank you, Barbara, for your love and inspiration. You are such a blessing!
Now for the award details:
The rules are:
1-Copy the award to your blog
2-Choose 5-10 of your favorites blogs to send the award to.
3-Email the ones selected to let them know the award is there.
4-Create links to them
This award is for blogs that show kindness and sweetness in the entries.
These blogs are by normal, everyday women. But each one of them has a heart for God and the potential to be a high profile, nationally known writer and speaker. One is my pastor, one is my "sister of the pen," and the other three ... I don't even know them. I found them via Lysa TerKeurst's blog. I just lurk around on their blogs and enjoy reading their hearts and being blessed by their transparency.
Know that each one of you are a blessing to me!
I thought about giving this award to Barbara, but I think the point of this award is to pass it onward. Thanks, Barbara, for honoring me in such a sweet way. You are still encouraging me! I love you and miss you!
