Yesterday my precious friend, Katie, over at Intentional Pursuit awarded me with the Liebster Blog Award. Frankly, I'm not even sure what to say... I'm surprised... I'm thankful... I'm humbled!
I'm not sure of the origins of this award, and apparently they are hard to find. However, Katie says she learned that "liebster" is German for "dearest"... Aww, thank you Katie!! :) This award is for "small" blogs (under 200 followers), and I certainly fit into this category, LOL. The purpose is to spread awareness of a "small" blog you love with others so they, too, may have the opportunity to enjoy it.
Their are a few rules to passing along this award to other fellow "small" bloggers.
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who nominated you by linking back to their blog.
2. Nominate five other happy little blogs by posting a comment on their blogs.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Now you get to stop by and see what these up and coming blogs have to offer.
I would gladly oblige to these rules. Unfortunately, I only follow two "small" bloggers, one of which nominated me. But just in case you aren't familiar with them, let me tell you a little bit about them...
1. Intentional Pursuit by Katie
Katie loves Jesus! She is very intentional in her pursuit of the things of God, and desires to train her children to do the same by example (hints the name of her blog). When she blogs, she generally always makes me think about a concept in an abstract way. I love her use of Scripture in her posts as well... Katie LOVES God's Word!! She inspires me to dig deeper, pray harder, and be more intentional in my own pursuit of the Lord! If you don't know Katie, take a few minutes to listen to her heart.
2. The Kindle Crew by Jennifer
Right now, Jennifer is on a hot pursuit to see the Lord work in new ways in her own heart and that of her family. She desires obedience to God and to share the love of Jesus with those she comes in contact with. I admit, I'm a little drawn to Jennifer's blog because her children remind me of my own childhood: 3 boys and then a girl. :) Jennifer writes in a compelling but down to earth manner. So grab your coffee and share a cup with her. She's a great friend to listen to!
Thank you both for being such an inspiration to my walk with Jesus! I cherish your friendships!! :)
