What a thrill to receive the “Encouraging Thunder Award” recently for this blog. Many thanks to my friend and fellow blogger, Kelly Walker, for her nomination.
Be sure to visit Kelly Walker's blog “Life of a Daily Painter.” Kelly not only chronicles her daily painting adventure, but she encourages others to paint and shares the work of her hundreds of students of all ages and finds fun and creative ways to support her community and other artists. She's also the “mother” of adorable dogs who are featured prominently on her blog.
Why I blog
I can't think of anything I'd rather be recognized for than for being an encourager. I believe each of us carries a deep-seated desire to live a wholehearted life—the best life we can—and I believe the secret sauce for doing that lies in the strength of life's four essential connections: with God, with Self, with Others, and with Nature. I constantly seek ways to connect more meaningfully with God, Self, others, and Nature, and my purpose in blogging is to invite you along on the journey and help you find ways to strengthen your own essential connections. If you're not already a subscriber, I hope you'll join me HERE. You can unsubscribe at any time.
So thank you, Kelly, for thinking of me and for being a faithful reader at Heartspoken.com.
