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.
