Some of My Favs!

A couple times a year, I like to put out a little cyberspace P.R. for those I love to follow. Those whose lives have impacted mine. Some in small ways, some in very significant ways.

There are the obvious “in-the-lime-light” blogs that are written by women who touch our lives with theirs. But there are also some “not-so-well-known” blogs that are written by women who touch our lives in equal measure.

I big-time heart each of these women and how they live out loud for Jesus!

So, here’s a list of some of my favorites. Some are ‘famous’ – some are not – but all bless my life with theirs. My prayer is that you will pop into their pages and allow them to do the same for you!

And here they are in no particular order…(Drum roll please!)

Penny Zeller

Since Penny’s last name begins with a “z”, I’ll wrap it up here and save some more for next time.

But isn’t it exciting to know that God is using His girls to make an impact in different ways in different places! I love being part of His forever family where we can spur one another on to good works – encourage each other and even do a little P.R. for each other!

The women I’ve listed are absolutely AMAZING and I really want to encourage you to check their sites out! Sometimes God uses different people to speak into our lives at different places of need – in different seasons. We need each other. Perhaps God wants to use you to encourage one of these wonderful women. Pray about it. Visit their site and see if God wants to use you to speak life into their lives.

If you know of a woman who you’d like to nominate for my next list of favs, please be sure to leave it in the comment section or email me.

There are many women who don’t have a blog that have also impacted my life with their own. A big “THANK YOU” to all of you…and you know who you are! πŸ™‚
