As a blogger, I write to share what God has placed on my heart. Sometimes my posts are encouraging, sometimes they provoke reflection but I’m never sure who God intended to read it. Therefore I’m always thrilled when I receive comments from people that say a particular post has touched them or blessed them in some way.
Thank you Journey With God for nominating my site for the Liebster Award. I’m glad you have been blessed by the posts in my site. I usually hesitate to accept awards since I am terrible at following the conditions that come with them but I appreciate the thoughtfulness of each nomination so I will try my best
My answers to the questions
1) What are you most passionate about?
Hmm…my 3 biggest passions in life would be my family, the bible and the ministry I serve in.
2) What is your heart’s desire?
To see everyone in my family saved!
3) Who was the most influential person in your life?
Well, the person who most influenced my spiritual life would be my small group leader. Truly a remarkable man!
The person who most influenced the other aspects of my life is my wife – thank God she doesn’t hold back!
4) What are two items on your “bucket list”?
Not sure what a bucket list is … hahaha! If that’s a “to-do” list then it would be to (1) Get a Job, (2) Publish a book!
5) How do you best handle heated/angry situations?
I’ve been in several and they are something I would try to avoid as much as possible! But I’m usually the mediator and voice of reason – a very LOUD voice of reason at times
6) What is your favorite scripture, and how has it helped you on your life’s journey?
Hah, that’s an easy one! My blog is based on Romans 10:17 and Faith is so important in life, but really difficult to practice. That’s why I spend so much time trying to understand it and apply it.
7) What do you think are the three qualities to building and maintaining good friendships/relationships?
Sincerity, Confidentiality and Coffee ! Be sincerely interested in your friend’s life, be trustworthy with each other’s secrets and make time for each other (coffee is the best way to bond!)
8) What was your most memorable moment in your life?
When my son was born, 15 years ago. I wasn’t allowed in the operating theatre so I waited outside with my newspaper and I was slightly annoyed when he was born before I finished the paper! LOL, I still feel bad about that!
9) What is your favorite book/author and why?
Gosh I have so many…I am partial to Randy Alcorn and some of the stuff from Philip Yancey. The best book I have read recently is “The Grace and Truth Paradox” by Randy Alcorn.
10) If you could go anywhere in the world, no attention to cost, where would it be and why?
Greece and the coastal cities of the Mediterranean – I think they are just beautiful!
Ok, so here are some sites that I feel ought to have your attention! I’m nominating them for a Liebster too for crying out loud! I’ve been following them for a while and I find their posts very encouraging, instructional and passionate! Not all of them talk about Christianity, but all of them are interesting. So do check them out,
And there’s one more …this is a special one. I spend a lot of time reading her passionate and thoughtful posts but since Tami has declared her site to be an Award Free Zone, I will respect that and not nominate her….but go visit this remarkable site anyway!
I know I’m supposed to nominate 10 sites but hey, that’s the best I can do for now. If they accept the award (no hard feelings if they don’t!) – then it would be nice to know what inspires them to write
Yep, that’s my one question for them
