sunshine award

Look what I got today...

Jamie at Little Bishop Choronicles gave me this blogging award! Thanks Jamie!! Jamie's blog has made me smile time and time again! I love that she so honestly shares her life's stories with a lot of humor! I'm not sure when I first found Little Bishop Chronicles but I am thankful to be a follower and to be blessed by Jamie.

In accepting this blogging award, I also have to follow the rules and send it on...

The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”

Of course, awards come with rules…
1. Put the logo on your blog and/or within your post.
2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award

I can't wait to pass this on! Thanks so much Jamie!! Honestly, I have more than 12 favorite blogs.... so I'm passing this on to a few extra people. I'm also "revamping" the rules a bit.... please just accept this from me to you. If you want to pass it on, great. If not, great. Please know that your blog has encouraged and inspired me!

~in the details. This is one of five blogs that I am very partial to. My sister is an amazing writer! She writes with grace even in the raw moments of her life.

~donley farm. Another of my top five. My cousin's journey has been amazing. God is all over their lives in the midst of heartache, trials and incredible stress. I'm so glad she's back to blogging!!

~abba father God. Who knew my dad could blog?! Not only is he posting his adult Bible study curriculum, he also posts incredible wisdom gleaned from decades at Jesus' feet.

~in God's caring hands. This is by beautiful 10-year old daughter's blog. To protect her, we have kept it private. I'm hoping this award will inspire her to blog again.

~a mind full of intriguing thoughts. The last of my top five. My 13 year old son's blog. He's an amazing writer but to get him to blog is sometimes harder than pulling teeth.

~D.A.I.L.Y Jess has become a great cyperspace friend. I have had the privilege of praying for her and I think she's prayed for me as well. She, too, is on a journey that has God all over it!

~reviews & reflections Even though I didn't win her SodaStream giveaway, Heidi's blog is a favorite of mine! Tons of homeschool ideas, reviews and opinions... as well as glimpses into her life.

~saved by grace Shawntele's blog was one of the first I ever followed over a year ago. Her's is a blog filled with her journey with God.

~keeping of time Angie is a real-life friend as well as a blogging friend. She blogs about her life with three precious and sometimes precocious little girls.

~ben makes ten Judy's blog is another blog that I've followed for a long time. I love her homeschool ideas and her encouragement to others!

~oops... there goes my mind This is BY FAR the funniest blog in cyperspace!! Stef makes me laugh with every post. One night I was laughing so hard over her Sonic drive thru story that tears were running down my face. My husband thought I had seriously lost my mind!

~Amy's blah blah blogging Amy honestly shares her struggles with her walk with God and mothering with rare honesty and great humor.

~ZuZu's petals Meg has incredible insight for a young bride. I love reading about her journey with God.

~mommy mumbo jumbo Just found this blog and I think these two little ones are absolutely beautiful!! Looking at the pics and reading the posts reminds me so much of life when Eric and Emme were little!


  1. You are so sweet to think of me - thank you Heidi, I am honored! :O)

  2. Thank you for such kind words! :) How fun that so much of your family blogs too, wish some of mine would, it would be fun to see what they had to say.

  3. Thank you so much! That just made my day!

  4. What a pretty award Heidi!!!
    I'm looking forward to sharing it AND to visiting your family members' blogs that you have linked us to here!
    God bless you today and always!


Thank you for your kind words!
