A Bouquet of Awards

A bouquet of awards!  I am honoured.  It’s a wonderful vote of confidence in my writings!

Thank you to Elizabeth Yalian for nominating me along with some great blogs.  It’s amazing to realize again how many like-minded and like-hearted people are out there, sharing their hearts and lives one thought at a time.

The rules for accepting these awards are quite simple:  Share 7 things about yourself; pass these awards on by nominating 15 other blogs, while crediting the blogger who nominated you.  Inform the nominees of their nominations.  It is a bit of work, but well worth the investment, as it’s a great way to network – you’ll come across some amazing stories out there from amazing people, and be encouraged!

So here we go, 7 things about myself:

  • I was born and raised in Kansas, emigrated once to Scotland, and then a second (and last!) time to Switzerland.
  • I was born with Marfan’s Syndrome, an accelerated growth syndrome.  I spent 6 years of my childhood, 3 times a week, in medical treatments, and at 13 had two steel rods “welded” along my spine.
  • I gave my life to Jesus when I was 7, and began having dreams and visions about being in Scotland – hence the first emigration, when I was 20.  The second came when I met my Swiss husband there, in Youth With A Mission.
  • I’ve been happily married to my best friend since April 1993.
  • I am fluent in High German and Swiss German, but it helps to maintain my English by writing and speaking it occasionally!
  • I’m a certified English teacher for adults, but my main teaching function is in vocal coaching.  I began singing on stage at the age of 4, have sung with 4 albums to date, and do both private coaching as well as for bands, or groups of bands for weekend lectures.
  • I love crafts!  I’ll try anything craftsy, and have a well-stocked crafts room.

I am passing these awards on to some amazing bloggers.  Searching for that many was quite a task for me as I’m relatively new to WordPress-land; I’m quite “Berean,” and admittedly have a very low tolerance for armchair opinions or half-baked philosophies.  So the blogs listed below have passed muster!  Each one of them well worth a look, a like, and a follow.  Each one brothers and sisters in Christ, spread out around the world, ranging from teenagers, housewives, professionals or pastors.  Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for the kind nomination. You have a wonderful blog and I’ve enjoyed learning about your life. One of my dreams was to hike in the Swiss Alps and it happened in 1994! What a beautiful part of God’s world.

    • You’re very welcome! And thank you for your kind words! Switzerland IS one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Where did you go hiking?

      • Near Interlochen. We took a train up into the mountains. It was lovely with cow bells ringing…stayed in a ski resort/hostel (off season) and had breakfast with REAL Swiss cheese…saw avalanches in the distance as we hiked. A lifetime memory for me!
