Barnabas Award

You have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.

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 it is the number that signifies grace.

  1. Congrats on your award. The Body of Christ needs to be just this: hope and encouragement for one another as we walk side by side in life. But let us also encourage those around us who need it……believer or not. Because you may be the ONLY JESUS someone meets!

    1. Thank you β™₯ I agree. It’s a joy to encourage whomever I’m with. I don’t necessarily know who is a Christian, and who isn’t. Whoever needs encouraging is a candidate for a reason to hope. I always appreciate your comments. Blessings on you and your family.

      1. Hey friend……tagged you in my most recent post. It’s about being grateful this month. So grateful for you here too! Respond or not, no big deal either way.
