Change Begins at Home

I have been awarded an award called "The Change Begins at Home" award. This was given to me by Karen, from Karen's Ramblings. I "met" Karen about 3 months ago through bloggy land. She has a deep faith which she witnesses throughout many of her blog posts. I am very appreciative of this award. It tells me that my faith is portrayed through my blog.

The "Change Begins at Home" award originated at Bean Sprouts Blog (thanks for starting a new award Bean Sprouts!)

Here is what she says about it:

The "Change begins at home" award, this is given to bloggers who live what they preach, who try to make the changes in their own lives that they would like to see in the world.

The award rules are:

1. Nominate three bloggers who epitomise "Change begins at home"

2. Link back to the person who nominated you, and link back to this post

3. When you receive the award, you may display the "Change begins at home" button on your blog.

There are 3 people I am able to pass this award onto. I'm going to give this to 3 friends I have met through blogging. These are 3 people from different parts of the world. We all attend different churches but share a common belief in the same Lord. Through their faith, they are changing their own lives and living out a great example to the world.

Bonnie - I found Bonnie through a blog about 2 months ago. Bonnie is a great Mom, wife and daughter. She loves her family. She's got a great sense of humor. She also is great at taking pictures of creation. She's just started up a new blog with her flower pictures.

Jennifer - I have recently started reading Jennifer's blog. She is a constant witness of great faith throughout any difficulties she may have. Right now, she is away from her family, preparing for the birth of a new baby. Because of pregnancy difficulties, she has to be at a hospital away from home.

Ginger - I met Ginger through my sisters blog. Ginger has a way of sharing her faith through daily life events and humor. She's also a great Mom. Even her daughter posted about what a great Mom she is. There can be no greater testimony than that.
