Special thank you to my BBF (Blogging Best Friend) Ann Bradshaw for this unexpected nomination. Just so you know, I have already bought an outfit to collect my award in style, the speech is also already written! 😜 Thank you Ann for the commitment you’ve made to reflect Christ’s love, you have and will continue to inspire generations through His word.

So, here goes, questions answered:
1 What is your country of birth? England
2 Are you married or single? I’m married, currently in our 7th year.
3 Where do you write your blog? I usually write just before I go to sleep, so I’m usually in bed. I write notes on my phone, so sometimes I’ll get a thought and just make a note, this usually happens when I’m walking.
4 How long have you been writing? I’ve been writing pretty much every day since the beginning of 2006 when I started keeping a diary, so that’s about 13 years.
5 What made you start writing? I was stuck. I was looking for some sort of meaning to my life and figured I’d find it if I started writing down my thoughts. Kind of like pouring m&ms in to a bowl to find the blue ones, I wanted to pour myself out to make my purpose visible….I’m still looking for the blue ones!!!
6 How do you choose what to write about? I dont really choose, I just write about what’s going on with me at the time. It could be something personal or an observation, word from God. Life chooses for me.
7 What is your favourite food? Not possible to pick…food as a whole is my favourite! I do have a sweet tooth, I’m also partial to any food that involves some sort of melted cheese.
8 What does Christ mean to you? Everything. It is however a daily struggle between my thoughts aka my flesh and my knowledge of who Christ was, is and will be for me. He is the lover of my soul, I stand because He is holding me up.
9 Where you raised in a Christian household? Yes, but my family was not practising, i.e. we only went to church when my grandmother came to visit. I started going to church for myself after an encounter with my hairdresser. They prayed for me whilst I was getting a relaxer, the rest is history…. I continue to pray that all my family will have a personal relationship with Christ.
10 What name do you call God? Really depends. He is the great “I Am”, so He is what I need, when I need it.To me right now, He is my Father, my protector and comforter.
I know that I am now supposed to list a new set of questions and nominate my favourite bloggers but I just haven’t had the time to 1, write new questions and 2, read a variety of other people’s blogs to even nominate. I am currently hanging my head in shame and hope this does not disqualify me from winning!!! 😊
