Mathetes Award - Excellence in Discipleship

I started this blog to have an avenue to write which is something I love. I tend to work through things better by either talking it out loud or writing, so it is also a way for me to work through what God is currently teaching me in my walk with Him.

I feel blessed that God has chosen to use this blog to touch the lives of others. Thank you Rebecca for the nomination for the Mathetes Award and thank you Melly for your mention of my blog in your post as well. I find it amazing that God has led to me such great blogger buddies.
Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples.

The Rules: In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other “disciples” to pass it on to. As you pass it on, mention and provide links for:

(1) Dan King of Management by God as the originator of the award.
(2) The person that awarded it to you.
(3) Name and sites of the five that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ.

I've not been online lately as much as I used to be or as much as I'd like. I've nominated many of the same individuals for various awards in the past so this time I'm nominating five blogs that are new to me or ones that I've found awhile back, but have not been visiting regularly until recently.

Holy Experience - I was recently introduced to this blog by a good friend of mine and have already found it full of inspiration. Ann's posts are an amazing testimony of how living a life with God as your focus can be fulfilling through everything that comes your way. She is a great example to others, an inspiration and definitely loves the Lord.

Praise Fiddler - This is a blog I've not visited as often as I should. She speaks of her beliefs and the Lord without shame. I believe this is a blog that touches anyone who reads it.

Titus 2 Heart - This is another blog I've recently found. From what I've read thus far I can see the heart of God in this blog. This is a blog I will continue to read and I recommend it to you as well.

Christian Working Mom - This is a blog I find very helpful in my walk. I myself am a Christian mother who works full time outside the home and this blog is one that I believe is touching many women who are in this situation. I know firsthand how sometimes the church (most times unintentionally) can be discouraging and cause guilt for women working outside the home. I find this blog inspiring.

An Help Meet for Him - This is another blog I recently discovered. I am constantly seeking to better understand God's view of my role as a wife to my wonderful husband. Especially in light of the fact that he is not a believer. This blog encourages me with ideas of how I can be a better wife to my husband and a better example of Christ's love.
