Blog Award! A Blog with Substance

     Thanks to Angie, otherwise known as the Pebblekeeper at Petra School which can be found here,, for sending my way the "A Blog with Substance" award.  I'm sure Angie has no idea how much she's encouraged me through her blogs.  I'm so excited and also humbled to know I've encouraged Angie and hopefully others and I trust God is using it for His glory.  Since I only started to blog back in March, it's really exciting to know that God truly is using me in this realm.  
     The Award Rules:
  1. Thank the blogger who awarded it to you.
  2. Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using ten (10) words.
  3. Pass it on to ten other blogs which you feel have real substance.
     My blogging motivation:  Encouraging other moms/women for God's purposes and His glory! (I did it!)

     Of course, Angie's Petra School is one blog that I visit regulary and gain encouragement from.  In no particular order, here are ten other blogs that I've been encouraged by and I'd like to send this award to them.
  1. Handbook of Nature Study - It's all about studying nature outdoors with your children using Anna Botsford Comstock's book, Handbook of Nature Study.  I love that Barb give instructions to moms who are new to this type of nature study.  That's how we got started using this book that I had owned for a few years already.  You can find this blog here:
  2. The Last Frontier - Jenny's blog is about life with her two sons and husband in the Alaskan bush.  It's so fascinating to see what her post is about each time.  You can find her here:  
  3. Overweights of Joy:  Finding God in the Everyday Dance that is My Life - I've enjoyed reading about Amy Danielle's ponderings and adventures with eight children, seven of which are boys.  See her blog here:
  4. Seek N 2 Glorify - I have been so encouraged by Meredith's transparency and realness as a Christian. We need more of that!  You can find her here:
  5. Raising Homemakers - RH has several contributing writers.  I appreciate reading their posts and sharing what I learn with my daughters.  Link here:
  6. Joy in the Journey - Heather shares her thoughts on theology, mothering and homeschooling.  You can find her here:
  7. Women Living Well - Courtney has encouraged me spiritually.  She encourages us as wives and moms to live according to God's Word.  Click on this link:
  8. Holy Experience - Ann has encouraged me in so many ways but mostly I get regular encouragement from her about taking time to really appreciate the little things in life.  Here's her link:
  9. Just a Minute - Jenny shares ways God is maturing her in her spiritual walk.  Link here:
  10. Treasures of Darkness - Nancy shares blessings that she's received from God, in the good times and the dark times of her life.  You can find her here:
I have to admit that it was hard coming up with just 10.  There are so many great blogs out there.  So let us hear about some more great blogs through the comments section below.  Thanks, in advance, for sharing.

Blessings to all of you this weekend!
