Blogging with a Purpose Award

Of all the awards that I have been blessed to receive during my time as a blogger this one just may mean the most to me because I have always felt a purpose and reason for my blogging. I try, each and every time I post, to be positive and to point people to God while giving Him all the glory so when Linda at Mocha with Linda and Rhonda at A Mother’s Heart gave me this award I knew that I was doing just what He wanted me to!

Because this award, which originated
here, reflects exactly what I feel about so many of the blogs I read and the precious community of which I have become a part.

So in the spirit of the award and the wonderful family that has been built through this bloggy land I would love to pass this on to some of the women that inspire me, that challenge me, and that blog with a purpose. I lovingly stand and celebrate these women and pass it on to:

Hope at Monkey Giggles,
Melissa at the Inspired Room,
Holly at Crown Laid Down,
and Maria at Free to Fly.

(There are so many others that I could list because you all encourage, challenge, and inspire me each and every day!)

Here are the Rules for this Award:
1. Awarded parties must nominate five people who have not received the award.
2. The blogs that receive the award must serve some purpose.
3. In their post about the award they need to link back to this entry.
4. Awarded parties must post the award banner on their site.
The banner must remain linked to the original site.

Beyond Blessed,
