My thanks to keltonburgpreacher Eugene for nominating me to the Liebster Blog award. He was very kind to mention me as an inspiration for his own blogging. Some bloggers say “liebster” is German for “dear(est),” or “beloved,” so there’s a compliment built in to it, it would seem.

The award, as far as I can find, is a pass-it-on sort of activity. One accepts by nominating five other blogs with under 300 (some say 200) followers, from what some have said. While I don’t usually go for emails and other forwarding pushes, I like this idea, so to honor both my nominator and highlight some good works, let’s run with it.

The bloggers I chose below are regular posters whose subject is the Christian life.

And the nominated bloggers are … (in no particular order)

Root downward, fruit upward — Rick Kelley has short but powerful thoughts. Always biblical, always well-centered, his clear writing always encourages me.

Mike Riley’s Articles — Mike gets to the point in a no-nonsense way. He’s a prolific writer, and his earnestness comes through clearly.

Journey with Joy — Joy Jensen is a home-schooling missionary mom in Tanzania. Their family and ours have a few things in common. Her blog is a, er, joy to read.

The Moving Word — Richard Mansel blogs about a slice of Christian life, on writing, books, words, and ministry. But he might not qualify for this award, since he may have more than 200-300 followers.

The Fellowship Room — Ignore me on this site, this is to honor those bloggers in this spiritual group weblog who enrich my life and have so much to offer.

  1. Thanks for playing along Randal. I had thought about doing one for the Fellowship Room but I didn’t know how that would work out.

  2. Thank you! Yeah, I thought twice about TFR, and decided to do it, since it does qualify technically as a group weblog. I have several others I wish I could have included, but some don’t write regularly, or they have large followings, etc.

  3. At first I really didn’t want to get “tangled up in the whole chain-letter like thing” but I decided to and I chose you because I thought it might give some people a chance to hear/read some truth with your connections to Forthright, etc. I have had several opportunities because of my blog to talk about salvational matters with others and I hope along with those discussions and the topics I post that some good may happen. I’m just tryin to sow some spiritual seed in the virtual field. The thing that I always have to remind myself about is patience (2 Tim. 2:24-26) because I want people to see the truth so bad like I did when I obeyed the gospel.

    I’m glad you’re out here doing your part because if I get just one real response to the gospel the credit would have to go to God and to you for your example. Thanks a lot; I mean it.
