Rockin' Girl Bloggers
And now, I get to return the favor to some women blogs that I read and enjoy immensely. Before I dive in and introduce these wonderful women to you, please check out the blogs of these women that I nominated in my Thinking Blog awards too.
First of all, I want to introduce you to Dana from In a World of My Own. She is a real-life friend that I have known as long as I’ve been together with Jon. We all grew “up” in the high school youth group together and we double-dated to Jon and Trevor’s senior prom in 1999. She is absolutely hilarious and I love her dearly. Have you ever seen Gilmore Girls? She is Lorelei Gilmore to a T. She currently blogs on Xanga but is in the process of switching over to Blogger soon. She is most definitely a Rockin’ Girl Blogger.
Then there is Sarah from As the Lord Works, another real-life friend. Sarah and I were tossed together in second grade by our mothers and were told that we’d better get along… or else. It has been wonderful to grow up with a friend, one whom you can be vulnerable, open, and accountable. We both married junior high (Sarah) and high school (me) sweethearts and embarked on the journey of motherhood together. She is teaching me so much about having a servant’s heart towards Jon and my children. She is a Rockin’ Girl Blogger.
I started reading Joy’s posts from Joy in the Journey over a year ago. I’m not even sure how I found her but I am so thankful that I did. She recently took a hiatus from blogging to travel to a language school in Jakarta and then to give birth to twin boys. I was ecstatic to see she had returned and once again, I am so blessed by her posts regarding her home life as a wife and mom, and as a missionary in another country. Check her out, she is a Rockin’ Girl Blogger.
Stacey, oh my, what can I say about my dear friend Stacey?! She blogs at A Measure of Grace and again, not sure how we found each other, but another one for which I am so thankful. Stacey recently went through a really hard, bad adoption story but I am amazed by her resilient spirit and I love that she continues to look for the good in her life. She is another that encourages me to be a better wife and mother. She is a Rockin’ Girl Blogger.
And last, but certainly not least, is Amanda from Mama Sings. If I were to pick what a Rockin’ Girl Blogger looks like, she is it, nose ring and all! I believe she found me first but I was quickly taken in by her openness, her realness, and her ability to lay everything out in the open. She is more than willing to share her good and bad stuff and I appreciate that about her. She and her family recently made an incredible decision to pick up their lives and move, all because God told them to. That is inspiring to me! She is the one that gave me the idea to start my early-morning quiet times and now my life will never be the same. She is a Rockin’ Girl Blogger.
Please know… there are so many GREAT, WONDERFUL, INSPIRING women on my blogroll. Do yourself a favor and definitely check them out! I read chapter three in Hebrews today and God’s instruction is very clear that we need to encourage one another on this journey, as mothers, as wives, as women, and as sisters in Christ. I am so thankful to have all of these women on this journey with me. So, to all of you, I say you are Rockin’ Girl Bloggers!
