2019 Blog Awards

The Sunshine Blogger Award is one of the best ways to learn more about other Christian bloggers who strive to write spiritually encouraging and beneficial content for all of us. The sunshine blogger award is not an official award, it’s just as important because it really reflects the good impact we can have on other people’s lives.  (Statements were cited from nominators’ blogs)

Thanks to Big brother Matt @ https://jesusluvsall.wordpress.com/ Ms. Sharima @ https://idealinspiration.blog/ Ms. Herry @ https://herrychiccounsels.com/ for nominating the Christian Mommas blog.

11 questions by Herry

  1. How did get started blogging? With the support of my spouse, I started blogging privately about my motherhood experiences. It was easy to get started because I was a stay-at-home mom.
  2. Other than Jesus what Biblical “character” would you most like to spend time with? Sarah. I want to know what it was like being Abraham’s wife. I wonder what she was thinking while waiting for a child.
  3. How many places have you lived? 5 countries (Nigeria, USA, Germany, Romania, Switzerland)
  4. Where/How do you blog (ie home office on PC, in my recliner on lap top)?. I use my laptop or phone. Anywhere in the house or in the car.
  5. How has your life changed since you stared blogging? Yes, I no longer feel sad about not having time for mission trips. This blog reaches people in places my feet may never tread.
  6. If you had zero subscribers, would you still blog? Yes. Having readers is good, having subscribers is better.
  7. Do you attend a small, medium or large church? small to medium.
  8. Why did you choose that particular congregation? Love lives there. God’s word is preached without compromise.
  9. How long have you been a Christ follower? about 27 years.
  10. What is your favorite holiday & why? Christmas. Everyone becomes more aware of God and family during the Christmas holiday. The atmosphere of love, kindness, and all is good.
  11. Other than blogging are you involved in any other ministry? Children ministry and street outreach. My job has become a ministry. I pray for my clients and their families.
