An Award....again :)

I've been blessed by Jaime at Diligently Waiting with the Beautiful Blogger Award!
Here are the rules for receiving it:
#1. Thank the person who nominated you and give the link.  Many thanks Jaime!  You're one awesome piano student!
#2 Tell us how the idea of having a blog popped up and why you continue it.  Well, I had desired for a long time to encourage girls.  My sister had started a blog and I thought it was a great way to reach out to young people.   I also wanted a place where I could sharpen my writing skills and my faith.
#3 Describe a usual day of your life.  In the summer my life varies from day to day but is usually very busy harvesting, washing, cutting, canning, etc.  Here's a preview:  wake up at 6 am, do quiet time, run, finish quiet time, play the piano for family worship, breakfast, chores, 1 hour of science (still trying to finish that up :), gardening/canning/washing/peeling/making butter/etc., help make lunch, check email/blogs (throughout the day), make bread, help make dinner, play with siblings, read, eat dinner, clean-up, eat ice-cream with the family, good-night prayers, bed!  Phew!  Mamma does a very good job at keeping us busy but she balances our work time and free time excellently! 
#4 The best collaboration with a blogger?  Um, I'm not sure I have one.  Does my sister count ;)?
#5 The worst collaboration with a blogger?  Sorry, no answer for that one either.
#6 Explain what having this blog means to you.  It means that, through the technological advances of the internet, I have the ability to share Christ and encourage girls across the world!  Not only am I reaching my community but people I might never meet.  What a privilege! 
#7 Now nominate 5 bloggers for this award.

Sarah Jane!

I leave you all with a verse:

"Be strong, be courageous; for the Lord your God He is the one who is with you.  He will not leave you nor forsake you."
Deuteronomy 32:6

Learning to delight in Jesus,


  1. Thanks for the award! It's very sweet of you!
    Just to let you know so you don't think that I'm ignoring it, I don't do blog posts on the awards anymore.... I just stick them at the very end of my blog.

    I had to start doing that because I was doing more award posts than regular ones! :) :)

    Thanks again!! :)

  2. Thanks for doing this, Hannah! I enjoyed reading it! =) =) =)

    And you're one awesome piano teacher! =)

  4. Thank you for the award, Hannah! It was sweet of you to think of me. I apologize for not noticing the award sooner. Our lives have become completely absorbed with VBS at church and preparing for our missions trip to Haiti. I'm not sure when/if I'll get to post on the award, but thank you!
