Sisterhood of the World Bloggers!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award is an award that recognizes the unique voices of women across the world.

Ahoy Mateys! It's been quite awhile since I have blogged. Now is the perfect time to start up again. I want to thank Eileen Rife for nominating me for this Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
2. Put the Award logo on your blog.
3. Answer 10 questions you've been sent.
4. Make up 10 new questions for your nominees to answer.

Here are the questions I was sent and my answers:

1. What is your foremost prayer in this new year?

I pray that the Lord blesses me and my family with good health...not looking back, just forward.

2. Name three goals that you'd like to shoot for.

To finish reading through the Bible for the 15th time.
To be a spiritual influence to my grandchildren.
To try and read more books than I did in 2014....which were very few. 

3. What is your current writing project?

I am writing a book called "Call Me Grammy"...slow going. 

4. What do you enjoy doing for fun?

I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren...they keep me young. I am also really enjoying my hobby of creating Exploding Picture Boxes. 

5. Other than the Bible, name the book that's had the most impact on your life and why. 

Frank Peretti's This Present helped me to realize that there is a very strong spiritual presence here...good and evil. This book also got me into reading Christian novels. 

6. What will you do in this new year to reach out to someone else other than your family?

This is a hard one.....I guess I will just see who God puts into my path. I do volunteer as a personal prayer warrior for Guidepost ministries....definitely people I do not know. :-)

7. Explain why you like to write. 

Even though I am not writing a novel, I do enjoy putting my thoughts down....I journal A LOT each month and it's very satisfying. 

8. What legacy do you hope to leave behind when you die?

A legacy of love....I want my loved ones to know love, especially the love of Christ. I have Bibles, journals and scrapbooks that will be left behind for my children/grandchildren. 

9. Do you consider the local church important? Why or why not?

Yes, local churches are important. I've attended my share of churches, some good and some not so good. Once you find that "fit", it can be a great comfort in your life. Since moving, I am between churches right now. 

10. How can women who feel alone overcome isolation? 

By seeking out other women who feel the same. There are so many support groups these days, that there should be someplace to go to find companionship. First and foremost, she should pray about it...then trust God to lead her.

Now for my nominees and their questions.

1. Did you decide to start a blog or were you encouraged to do so? If encouraged, by whom?
2. In 2014, what was your greatest accomplishment?
3. What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
4. If there was a movie written about your life, what would the title of that movie be?
5. Do you make New Year's resolutions? Why or why not?
6. If you could bring back just one deceased relative (for a day) who would it be and why?
7. You are a reporter on assignment...where are you and what's the story about?
8. If Facebook was suddenly gone, would it upset you? Why or why not?
9. There are so many colors in the rainbow....what is your favorite color and why?
10. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate yourself when it comes to productivity? Is there a certain project that you've never completed?
