I want to take this time to recognize Kimberly at Mom in the Go Lane for nominating me for this award!! I connected with Kimberly in Christian Bloggers' Mastermind Facebook Group. I am now following her on Instagram @mominthegolane. She has an inspirational blog that helps with real life situations. I am not a mom yet, but I know I can read her blogs for wisdom before and after having my own children.
MY FAVORITE BLOG:
My favorite Blog is by Koach Katlyn at http://koachkatlyn.com/ . She is such an inspiration to me as a woman who pursues her dreams and goals, and as a life coach, helps others to do the same. She is traveling the United States speaking and empowering women to be all that God has ordained them to be. As a blogger who also has an inspirational and uplifting blog for women based on the Bible, I am incredibly honored to know and connect with her. She recently published a devotional book called Slay & Pray.
QUESTIONS FROM MY NOMINATOR:
1. Given the choice of anyone in the world whom would you want as a dinner guest and why?

She is also an amazing writer, and I desire to write many more books that will inspire and uplift others in their walk with Christ.
