The Sunshine Award

Healing Leaf, a fellow blogger and a fellow follower of the Word, has nominated my blog as one that brings sunshine through inspiring words. This is especially honoring to see just after I wrote about the importance of remembering that the light has come and walking in that light (see the post here). Healing Leaf's blog has also been encouraging and inspiring to me and I would encourage you all to check it out.

Sunshine award rules:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
  2. Tell us something about yourself.
  3. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers.
  4. And let them know you awarded them!
So something about me: I am an American, married to an Ethiopian and we met in Germany. Together we are passionate about following God's plans for our lives. One thing that I am particularly passionate about is equipping young people to be leaders of men and followers of Christ. Check out the TnT Youth Ministry page for more about that.

Ok so now to choose 5-10 bloggers to nominate:

1. Matt's Meditations
2. Living Fearless
3. Dan Black On Leadership
4. One Voice ~ Write Right

Okay I know that is only four, but with the link to Healing Tree above that makes five. I am still fairly new to the blog world, but these blogs are ones that I have been following for some time and would recommend them to anyone. All of these blogs, along with Healing Tree who nominated me, are blogs which inspire me and help me in my relationship with God and continuing His calling on my life. I would encourage you guys to check out all of them.


  1. Thank you so much.

    There can never be enough inspiration in this tragedy stricken world. One voice to change the world, two to make a difference, three can become a choir! :)

    You're an inspiration too!

    Congrats on the Sunshine Award!!! :)


  2. Matthew,
    I feel so honored that you would mention me. I really appreciate it. I have really enjoyed reading your blog. Have a blessed weekend.


  3. Your both are very welcome! Thank you for writing!

  4. Thank YOU for being, YOU! :)
