The Very Inspiring Blogger Awards – Week 4

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Recently, I had the honor of receiving the Very Inspiring Blogger Award from Cathy.

Recipients of this award are encouraged to:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link to their blog.
  • Display the award logo.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers (more or less) who inspire you and share their links with your readers.
  • Leave a comment on their blogs so they know that they’ve been nominated.
  • Mention three things that have inspired you during the past week.

Feel free to customize these rules to make them work for you!

To celebrate, over the course of the next few months, I will be selecting Friends Of The Week from a wide spectrum of categories and passing this award to them!

Here are the current recipients of the Inspiring Blogger Award:

Are you ready to meet our Fourth Recipient of the Very Inspiring Blogger Award – and our next Friend Of The Week?

Friend Of The Week & Inspiring Blogger – Helen Gullet

Helen Gullett

This week, it’s my pleasure to introduce you to a gifted crafter and a wonderful blogging friend with a heart for God and His people – Helen Gullet of Living My Given Life!

He Is Risen Card

Helen is a talented cardmaker and scrapbooker whose creative projects often reflect her love for God, family and friends. She’s also a Close To My Heart consultant who designs for several creative teams and can often be seen inspiring her two beautiful young daughters to create!

May His Heart

Helen’s true passion, however, lies in missions. She and her husband met on a short term mission trip, and their desire as a family is to serve the Lord overseas.

I encourage you to visit Helen – to explore her blog – to extend her a warm welcome as our Friend Of The Week – and congratulate her on receiving the Inspiring Blogger Award from Create With Joy!

Video – Get Organized In Style!
