Article Sharing (Part 2)

Blogging Heroes

Last week I featured three of my blogging buddies, Deanna who now has a couple of new websites – this one is “Your Pastor’s Wife” – JoJo at “The Art of Eloquence” and Ray at “Fallen Pastor”.  Today I am pretending that it’s Friday and featuring some more of my wonderful talented blogging buddies.

1. The Reluctant Wham is a blog site by my online buddy, Carla Ives – who is committed to sharing her wealth of information for the “work at home mom”. Her daily inspiration and encouragement is a must for any “reluctant” stay at home mom who has found herself in the position of making money for her family. I love Carla’s information – but mostly her keen sense of humor and love for people who motivate her to give of herself. I love all of her articles – but if I had to choose one to feature it would be this one: My Quilt Be sure and check out her site for many ideas about making money while staying at home.

2. 24/7 Life – A Life Well Lived is a blog site by my real life friend David Miles. David and my husband were on staff together for about 4 years at New Life Church in Renton, Washington about 3 years ago. I have always loved David and his wife, Monika. They have a beautiful baby girl now – and it’s fun to see him playing the “proud papa” and displaying his many pictures of his baby girl 🙂  David is now on staff at Maple Valley Presbyterian and works with people of all ages – and I’m sure they love him!  He is fully engaged when he has a conversation with you – in person or online.  He and I have been square dancing corner partners (don’t ask) and then friends at church and blogging buddies for about 3 years now.  He always encourages me in my writing – and has even been so kind as to feature me as a guest blogger a few months ago.  Probably my favorite article of his was the one he just wrote a few days ago: Facing A Potential “Most Embarrassing Moment” You will love it – and him. Check him out!

3.Pastor Mike Says Is a blog site from my real life friend Mike Sanderson. We met through our blogs and facebook about 3 years ago or so. Then Greg and I planned a trip to Las Vegas where Mike and his wife, Carmen live. Naturally we wanted to meet them to put a face with a name – and what a fun weekend we had! Mike even took us to the Grand Canyon – what a long day in the car that was! I don’t think any of us ever properly recovered from that trip! Mike is a pastor and has a shepherd’s heart for people. His blog site reflects that. I even helped design it for him 🙂 My favorite article of his is: You Are Unique, You Are Amazing I trust that you will be blessed to hear his words of encouragement.

Check them out – you will be blessed today!

God Bless

Article Sharing Friday

Each Friday I am going to share some of my favorite people and a favorite article that they have written.  Today I thought I would share three favorite people with you – they are not only great writers – but great people I have come to love and respect.   In my day-to-day life in social networking and especially in the blogging community – I have met and interacted with many – but a few individuals stick out in my mind.  These I either know personally and have a “real” relationship with – or have connected with online through common experience and subject matter.  There are so many choices when it comes to following a blog.  I have found, that for me – I am better if engaged in conversation with the person who writes the blog – and the investment goes both ways.  So I am choosy when it comes to which ones I feature on my site – and those I choose to comment on.  Here are my top three choices for today:

1. Taste Hope  Is a blog site from my real life BFF Deanna.  She and I have known each other for 15 years – and served in ministry together with our husbands at the same church for about 5 of those years back in the 90’s.  She and her husband run a beautiful little B&B in North Bend, Washington.  Deanna is a pastor’s wife, licensed counselor,  gifted writer, communicator and chef.  She has amazing humor and great insight on life through her own journey.  One of my favorite articles from Taste Hope is:

  30 Things I wish Someone Had Told Me When I Graduated From High School

2. Art Of Eloquence  A blog site from my online buddy JoJo.  I have known JoJo now for about 3 years. She is a master communicator, has numerous works published for home-school curriculum and many other things on communication in general. She has hosted her own radio show – and at one point she had Greg and me join her to talk about marriage.  She always has something fresh and humorous to write about and she is a daily presence in my blogging and social networking life.  I have appreciated her comments and encouragement so much over these years and look forward to meeting her someday  in person – other than just Skype!  One of my favorite articles from The Art Of Eloquence is:

The Case For Wrinkles

3. The Fallen Pastor  A blog site from my online buddy, Ray.  I met Ray less than a year ago – stumbled onto his blog and read his story – one of failure and forgiveness.  The true story of a pastor caught up in discouragement, depression and ultimately, failure of his marriage through an affair.  He has been restored and is full of hope for the future – is a very gifted speaker and writer – whose mission in life is to help and encourage fallen ministers.  He and his wife Allison are humble and approachable – and Greg and I have visited with them both through Skype – and with all my communications and comments via blog sites or social networking – I feel as if Ray is my brother from another mother.  I love his tender and caring heart for people – and his humble and broken heart for others who have gone through trauma in or out of ministry.  One of my favorite articles of his is this:

My mess, His Message: Introduction

I trust you will be blessed and encouraged today with these three awesome people – and look up their blogs for more awesome articles!

God Bless
