My First Blog Award!!

Kimberly @ Raising Olives gave me my first blog award. Thank you so much! I'm new to the world of blogging, but found Raising Olives early on and have stuck there. Kimberly has helped me work out kinks in our homeschool schedule using Sonlight with kids of different ages, even pre-schoolers. Most recently we've begun following the example of Kimberly's family by implementing Mathew 18 as a way of teaching our children to get along with one another. This is so simple, yet profound. It's cut down on the tattling already and the best part is we're helping our kids to develop Biblical conflict resolution skills.

The catch is, to accept this award I must answer the questions below using only one word.

1. Where is your cell phone? What?
2.Your hair? Thick

35. Favorite place to eat? Mom's
Now I get to pass this award on to 6 of my favorite bloggers.
1. Bridget @ Don't Blink! . She's a lively spirit and is taking her show on the road. She and her family will be touring the US by RV and I know you won't want to miss out on their adventure of a lifetime.
2. Heather @ Especially Heather. Heather and I knew one another in "real life" a million years ago. I caught up with her through facebook and her blog recently. She's a cancer surviver and has a miracle daughter. Heather cuts through the small talk and gets right to what matters- glorifying God in all circumstances.
3. Jennifer @ Praise Like David. I just found her blog last week. Check out her cool post on the excavation of the ancient underground city of Derinkuyu located in modern day Turkey.
4. Noelle @ TripleSmiles. Noelle is my "real life" friend who first convinced me that I should join facebook and then suggested I start a blog. What will it be next, Noelle? A cell phone? Answering machine? I feel fully planted in the 21st centurty with two feet now thanks to my friend Noelle. She blogs about her exciting life with a 3, 2, and 1 year old.
5. Snuzi @ Every Captive Thought. Snuzi's mom and my mom are best friends and we had our babies 3 days apart last year. This year we're in the same Community Bible Study discussion group and I'm enjoying getting to know her better. She loves the Lord and has such a great sense of humor- I know you'll love her blog.
6. Amy @ Raising Arrows. I just found her blog recently through At the Well. Amy suffered the loss of her precious daughter Emily a few years back and recently wrote about grief and what you can do for a friend who's grieving the loss of a child. She has a heart for the Lord and for family and has a wondeful way with words.


  1. Awww, you're such a sweetie! (and I seriously need to join in on this Sonlight discussion...feeling a little overwhelmed right now and I haven't even taken the leap!) Hopefully, I'll get to accepting this award properly, but for now, thank you! I'm so glad you've enjoyed reading the blog!

  2. Oh my , Thank you. It's nice to hear when one of my posts is enjoyed by someone! It's after 1 AM so I'll get to accepting/posting it tomorrow...later today really =)
    Good night

  3. Thank you! This is so much fun!

  4. How sweet of you! Thank you! I've enjoyed your blog so much as well. Have fun on your trip.

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
