Blogging to Glorify

I am very humbled and honored to recieve this award of discipleship from Julie at According to His Power. It is funny because just today I was searching through my old blog and reflected on all of my posts and it made me think of why I started blogging. I started with the idea in mind to encourage other women in their high and holy callings of being a mother, wife and homekeeper and I feel that in some ways I have wandered away from that first initial idea and starting place of this blogging experience. I believe that it is vitally important to have some encouragement in our journey as christians, as mothers, as wives and as homekeepers and the fellowship that is able to thrive in the blogsphere is in so many ways inspiring and motivating to the ultimate journey to the cross, to the daily adventure of glorifying our Lord and Saviour. This award has reminded me of the passion I have for encouraging in my own personal way and hopefully set my feet back in place as I desire to be a better disciple of Christ daily learning and growing deeper in my knowledge of Him.

"Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. I'd like to take the opportunity to award five other bloggers with this award and badge for acting in the role of a disciple of Christ. These five all share the message in their own creative ways, and I admire them all for what they do."

This award was created by Management by God

I'm truly honored. Thank you. Lately I've been feeling as though I haven't been much of an encourager, so this really means a lot to me. You are a blessing!
