Did you hear the news? My Liebster blogging award nomination:

I am so excited to announce that House Full of Littles has been nominated for the Liebster award!! I am truly honored to accept the nomination. I pray over each and every post. My hearts desire is to encourage and strengthen you,  dear readers.

I would love  to thank Adrianna of Changing Plate for the nomination! You should definitely check out her blog about travel and food (who doesn't love food?).

So now I am going to answer the questions asked by Adrianna, and ask some of my own questions to my nominees.

    1. How long have you been blogging? What made you start? I Have only been blogging a few months. I have felt lead to do it for more than a year, but I talked myself out of it over and over, thinking I didn't have the time or energy. I just couldn't get it out of my head, and just jumped into it to serve and glorify God. If it is His will, He will provide the time and energy. :-)
    2. If you could travel anywhere you wanted to, where would it be? This is a tough one...there are so many places that would be great. I would love to read your answer for this one in the comments! I think I would pick Ireland and check out my Irish roots. 
    3. What is your idea of the perfect way to relax? This one is easy! A bath, chocolate, and a good book...oh yeah, and a lock on the bathroom door (complete with daddy on kid duty). 
    4. What is your favorite drink? I love tea! It can be hot in the winter, and iced in the summer. Right now I am drinking a lot of green tea, and lady grey. 
    5. Your on an Island and can only bring one thing. What would it be? My Life Application Study Bible. It is amazing (especially if you didn't go to Bible college and don't necessarily know what is going on culturally and what the significance of events).
    6. What is the biggest Goal you are working towards? There are many, but they all stem from the ultimate goal of living for Jesus. I am working on raising children who follow Him, on serving those around me, and being the helpmeet He has called me to be. 
    7. What makes you smile? Spending time with my family! 
    8. What is one of your talents? I don't like to admit it because I have terrible stage fright, but I like to sing. 
    9. What is the top item on your, "bucket list"? It is funny, but I have never thought about having a bucket list. It would be great to go to Peru and visit the child we sponsor through Compassion International
    10. What is your favorite thing about blogging? Getting to know my readers!! It has been been amazing meeting (through the internet) a lot of you. In fact, I am going to ask 10 questions of the bloggers I nominate, and I would love to read your answers to some of them in the comments! 
So without further ado here are the blogs I am nominating: 
Now here are your questions: Can't wait to read your response!

  1. What is your favorite quote?
  2. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  3. If you had an extra $10,000 what would you do with it?
  4. What charity/cause is important to you and why?
  5. What is your favorite movie?
  6. Who has been the most supportive person in your life?
  7. What is your greatest accomplishment so far?
