A Blog Award!

Well, whaddya know!?!  I have received TWO Liebster Blog Awards this week!  Thank you to Cathy at "Thoughts on Books" and Casey at "Writing for Christ - The Audience of One" for presenting me with this award!  I truly appreciate it, ladies!  Be sure to check out both of these blogs!  Cathy and Casey both have a true heart for God and post wonderful Christian book reviews and other things to inspire you in your Christian walk.

What's a "Liebster," you say?  It is my understanding that "Liebster" is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.  How sweet is that?  I'm feeling very special right about now!  ;-)

The goal of the award is to spotlight up and coming bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers. The rules of the award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have fun!

So, without further adieu, here are my picks for the Liebster Blog Award . . . 

Bug's Beads (Casey's Jewelry Website) She makes beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and anklets!  The quality is exceptional, and the designs are so pretty and unique!

Lisa at "Happy in Dole Valley"  I recently discovered this beautiful blog!  "You'll find posts about a variety of topics including our family life, our faith and church, home education, our kitchen experiences including recipes, our journey toward real and nourishing foods, raising chickens for eggs and meat, and our knits, crochets, soaps, candles, jewelry, and a variety of other handcrafted items."

Tina at "Sugar Bean Bakers" Tina has been a dear friend of mine for over 10 years, and she has a SWEET blog!  She shares delicious, creative, and unique sweet treatsHer photography is gorgeous, as well!

Christy at "Southern Sassy Things" Christy features Christian book reviews, author interviews, and great book giveaways!  Her blog is one of my favorites!

Amber at "Seasons of Humility"  Amber is such a sweet girl, with a HUGE heart for God!  Her sweet spirit shines through in every post.  You'll find Christian book reviews, fun theme weeks, and fantastic author interviews, and book giveaways.

Thanks again to Cathy and Casey for passing this award on to me!  :D
