I'm the kind of person who needs regular encouragement to keep on going. And, I'm so grateful for friends who keep encouraging me often. My husband is my greatest source of encouragement - praying for me and constantly lifting me up with his words.
My real life friends have listened to me pour out my heart and have prayed over me, releasing the power of the Holy Spirit to encourage and lift up my soul.
My bloggy friends find ways to remind me that this blog matters, that who I am and what I do and say glorify God, which is what it's really all about. You ladies can't imagine how much these things lift my spirits! Blogging has become more than just a writing outlet, but a place to make friendships. For each of you, I am very thankful!
Thank you friends - thank you for ministering to me with encouragement! The following awards are from Denise and Robin and Susan.
I'd like to pass on these awards to some new ladies I've met through Proverbs 31 ministries:
Lysa TerKeurst, director of Proverbs 31 Ministries
Renee Swope, Lysa's cohort :)
And to some real life friends who have been an encouragement to me in this writing journey:
Mary Pierce, aka the "laugh lady"
Thank you Father for the encouragers You've sent my way!
