Good Monday to you my friends! I got nominated for a couple blogger awards by my two favorite bloggers, Lene and Heather. Lene nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award and Heather nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. These days with writing books and being so busssyyyy as a daddy and husband and lingustics student and analyst and connoiseur of fine coffees and above all passionate follower of Jesus, I decided to condense and combine the award into one post, this one. I’m breaking the rules a little bit too. I want to talk about just my favorites, keep it condensed, and actually tell you why I think you should go check their work out and why they’re awesome.
So first up is Lene. She’s nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. She’s a rockstar for Christ. She’s guest blogged on my blog before and I have guest blogged on hers too. And I think you should definitely go look up her blogs. She’s doing awesome things for God in Japan, a land where Christianity is almost void. She has a great heart, lives out her beliefs in Christ, is a mom and a person of deep wisdom. You have to subscribe to her blogs!
Next is Heather Davis. What can I say about her writing…wow. She nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.! Her blog is awesome. She is a writer who is probably working on a New York Times bestseller quality manuscript right now. One of these days you just might see her book at Barnes and Noble. On her blog she talks about not just life lessons with Scripture and family, but also homeschooling and learning Hebrew. Which I think everyone should give a crack at learning Hebrew and Greek, but I’m biased 😉 Definitely subscribe and check her blog Running the Race out.
A couple others than I really enjoy, don’t think I’ll hit the full 15 or even 7 required blogs here for the awards, but I want to really highlight my favorites and give my thoughts on each.
Matt Brumage has a really good blog over at Knothole Theology. It’s good, really good. His posts have probably forced me to rethink and think deeper on Scripture than just about anyone I’ve met in the blogging space. Put on your thinking cap and head on over to his blog and subscribe while you’re over there, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. He’s doing a series on the Passion Week that I think you’ll like.
Christina’s blog is my new favorite on WordPress, it’s just incredible. I mean seriously wow. I just discovered her on here and I’m really enjoying reading her awesome family story. They just adopted four boys from Latvia and has even just started an Around the Worldpress race, which I think you should join! Subscribe and go read through a lot of her blogs, especially her about page which tells about her and her family’s fantastic journey with Christ in their adopting saga.
A couple others to check out that are on my WordPress reader…
Shattered in Him. Great stuff, good thoughts. She’s a mom who has also learned some Greek, Hebrew and Latin, whoa! You gotta subscribe to her blog!
Stones from the Quarry (Johanna hasn’t wrote much lately, but I definitely recommend going back and checking out her older posts. Great stuff!) She has some good John Eldredge-esq thoughts! She’s very wise in Christ!! One of my favorite blogs on WP!
Gadol Elohai Ministries has some good stuff, just did a review of fellow blogger Fran Rogers’ book which is pretty good. This blog has some great and uplifting words for the journey with Christ!
Well, that’s a wrap for the awards ceremonies. Now that I’ve shared my favorites, what are some of yours?!
Your brother in this wonderful family of God,
