One Lovely Blog Award

Last week I received the One Lovely Blog Award from both Jen at Finding Heaven and Stephanie of Journey of Healing, both on the same day.  I have to admit that I was both honoured and humbled to receive this award.  I sometimes struggle wondering if anyone is actually reading the blog and am I making a difference, so it's nice to receive some supportive encouragement.

There are some rules in receiving this award.  (1) I have to accept the award and acknowledge the person(s) who bestowed it upon me.  So thank you Jen and Stephanie.  This award has really encouraged me and your words make me think and reflect on what God is saying to me.    (2)  Pay it forward to 15 newly discovered blogs you enjoy. 

So here are the 15, in NO significant order:

1.  Bobbi of Blogging Along.  I love her blog and her coffee pictures every Friday.  I also love the alliteration in her name.

2.  Tiffany of Growing from the Obstacles blogs about her life and family and her little man with Spina Bifida.  She is an amazing woman who is showing us God's strength through all the things that she has to deal with.

3.  CJ Carleton at I am Unique! is a Canadian writer and speaker who has a passion for mentoring young people.   She is currently hosting an awesome on line study.  Check it out.

4.  Linda at Joy in the Journey, is another lovely lady in the prairies, showing us how God is working in her real life through changing seasons of  life.

5.  Shawntele at Saved by Grace, is a homeschooling mom who hosts Music Mondays and shares her life and passions through her blog.

6.  Cindy at She Sparkles   I know this is not a newly discovered blog by myself, but I have to share Cindy with everyone.  She is an amazing woman who "bleeds" God's grace through her words.
7  Denise at Victory Road is a homeschooling mom, who shares her life and how God is working through her.  I have learned a lot from Denise, including blow drying your hair with the van heating system while camping. 

8 Rebecca and Cherie at Praying Wife's Club  These women encourage me as a wife  through their words and prayers.  Cherie recently went to Cambodia on a missionary trip and got to spread God's love to many.

9 Erin at Home Where My Heart Is.  She is a soccer mom who shares my passion on modesty and parenting.  

10  Are you in a Pickel?  This is the blog of Baby Pickel.  An amazing group who support mothers in need.  When you see it, you'll want to order a Pickel Bottle.  

11  Brooke of the Mountain Brooke  Brook is a delightful young woman who shares her heart with us all.
12  Amy at The Adventures of JAMC is a working mom and mother of two boys with Aspergers.   I love reading her adventures in mothering. 

13  Annika at Life on Locust Lane  shares her daily life with us and always makes me smile when I read her blog.

14 Amber at Striving for 31  shares her journey through the adoption process, mothering her two beautiful children and being a Pastor's wife. 

15 Angel at All the Mus.  It had fun this summer reading Angel's cupcake stories.  She has a weekly meme called Why I Count It All Joy Wednesday, where she encourages us to list our joy.

I hope you will check out my bloggy friends and get to met the beautiful hearts of each of the women who encourage me, challenge me and make me smile every day.
