Tell me about yourself award

Every now and then a fun and inspiring award travels through the blogging world. I received several in the past and I am always amazed at the creativity of the people who invent and design these awards. I don´t keep track of ´m all, but this week I received a nice one from Cathy, over at Thoughts on Books. Thanks, Cathy, for surprising me with this new award. It´s a great idea to get to know fellow bloggers a little better and to take the chance to visit new blogs. In other words, awards like this keep the blogging world go round, so I am happy to pass it on.

Please, take note of 3 simple rules:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
  2. Reveal seven things about yourself,
  3. Pass the award on to 5 other bloggers. Leave a comment on each blog, telling them that you've nominated them for this award.
Well, here's seven things about me that are fun to share:

1. I just LOVE lasagna, but unlike Garfield I prefer it hot from the oven!
2. I have been together with my husband for more than 25 years, we have no children.
3. I love to travel, exploring new places and re-visiting old ones and I always take plenty of photo's
4. I do not have a television, but enjoy watching movies and browsing Youtube on my laptop.
5. I like my desk organized and clean
6. I desire to write many more books, bible studies, blog posts and articles on practical Christian living and spiritual growth.
7. I have learned to speak in public and actually feel in my element when doing so.

I've chosen 5 blogs. Some I have followed for ages, others I've recently started following. Feel free to go visit these lovely blogs and Cathy's as well. :)

On Wings of Mirth and Worth
Putting Pen to Paper
My Daily Walk in His Grace
Blessings in His Grip

If you are one of the 5 blogs I nominated and would like to pass it on, copy the blog award to a post, reveal 7 things about yourself, and pass this award on to 5 other bloggers of your choice. Congrats!

Happy blogging!


  1. Thanks so much Marja! I am so glad that you have been enjoying the blog and I am humbled to be included in your award list! My husband and I are just about to head out on a, I'll go ahead and list the 7 things about Tricia and me here!

    1. I've been married 30 years and have 2 children (a boy and a girl) and one granddaughter
    2. I'm 5'2"
    3. I love to write - and this new prayer blog formed after I had been writing my devotional blog for a couple of years. I wanted to go deeper in prayer with the Lord and thought that there might be others out there who did, too.
    4. I love the outdoors (in fact my husband and I are going to Yosemite on our vacation!)
    5. Tricia (my prayer partner and co-blogger on our Blessings blog) is a fantastic cook!
    6. Tricia is a wonderful example of a Christian friend. She has been with me through thick and thin!
    7. Tricia and I met as we served together in the church. She has a true heart for the Lord and prayer.

    You can read more about us on the blog (The Blessings in His Grip - there is a tab on the top).
