Real Neat Blog Award

I have been nominated by the lovely Jess from DaySixtyFive for the ‘Real Neat Blog Award’. 

What a privilege and I am so thankful Jess that you thought of me! Thank you πŸ’–

Go check DaySixtyFive blog now guys!  Jess is one of my all time favourite bloggers. She’s always on my reading feed to put a smile on my face with her witty ‘joke of the day’. 

DaySixtyFive is more than just a lifestyle blog; Jess is intelligent, funny & an inspiring writer, so yeah, if you haven’t done so already, go follow her now!

Here are the rules for the ‘Real Neat Blog Award’:

 1. Put the award logo on your blog

 2. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs

 3. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you

 4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs

 5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog, etc)

 6. Ask your nominees 7 questions

1. What drives you to get out of bed every morning?

The fact that every day is a new day & another chance for new life; to receive mercy & to freely give mercy to others. 

I also love Diet Coke so I’m always ready for a glass in the morning! πŸ˜‚

2. Who inspires you the most in your life currently?

I am so blessed to have such amazing people in my life who continually inspire & encourage me. Obviously, my immediate family (my hubby & kids) are my main inspiration but I also have a beautiful friend called Rachael. 

Here she is with me on the picture below. I’m on the left, Rachael’s on the right.

I call Rachael my ‘angel friend’ πŸ˜‡because I believe she was sent to me by God. 

Rachael is my chief encourager and will give me a good kick up the arse when I need it. That’s a true friend! 

Rachael also inspires me with her blog The Faithful Mommy cause she’s down to earth and just says it how it is.

3. How do you motivate yourself in regards to blogging?

I only Blog if I have something on my heart that I believe will be of benefit in sharing. I don’t Blog for the sake of it. So if I have nothing to say for a while then that’s fine, I’ll just wait until I do. No stress and no pressure. 

4. What are 3 dreams that you hope to fulfill in your lifetime?

I have so many to choose from and they all sound ridiculously clichΓ© but here goes: 

1. Route 66 with my hubby
2. Lead worship in an arena
3. Own a narrow boat. (My house is on the edge of the canal).

5. Do you have a favourite quote, if so, what is it and why?

This quote speaks volumes to me. I like it because it just sums up exactly how I feel about my relationship with God.

6. What is your favourite song, book, artist, album and movie right now?

Song: What a beautiful name by Hillsong

Book: That book for wives by Sally Poyzer 

Artist: Kalley Heiligenthal
