COME TO MY PARTY! BLOG PARTY!!(CLOSED)

Hello friends, how are you today? Well guess what happened? We got snow! I mean real snow; you know the kind that has to be plowed and driveways have to be shoveled and schools are closed. Yep! That kind of snow and it is beautiful, I love the snow.  Of course it would be wonderful if it came with warm weather.  But that’s okay; there is beauty within the pain.9FD2ECF6-B1BF-4154-8D31-F1EA99B295ABYeah! Today, we are having a party; a blog party, that is!  I love to read blogs.  I prefer blogs that show people whose lives have been changed as a result of the beauty of God’s Word.  I enjoy reading about people who live life ‘in’ the world, but are not ‘of’ the world.  I like blogs about fashion and natural hair and thrifting and the Bible.  BUT, perhaps you have something different, please share with us who you are and what your blog is about.  Please don’t just leave a link to your blog; people like me want to know what you have to offer, before we click; something to do with the way our brain works.  AND don’t just leave a link and run away; someone might think that’s a bit selfish. Phil 4 4

 LET’S GET THE PARTY STARTED!!!

The following rules are KaylaAnn’s (beautiful name) and after quite a bit of research, (see, I research too) I decided to go with hers, because they literally could be words coming from my mouth.  Thank you, KaylaAnn, for allowing me to use your rules.  She offers writing tips and she hosts regular blog parties among other things.  Do check out her blog.

Here are some simple rules:

  1. First off, everyone is welcome to participate in this Blog Party (even if you do not currently follow me, although I would LOVE it if you did!)
  2. If you are a new follower of my blog, say hi and let me know so that I remember to drop by your blog and check you out.
  3. Leave a Comment! Say hi and tell us who you are and what your blog is about. Feel free to leave a link connecting back to your blog’s home page or to your favorite or most recent blog post! (Post this only once please.)
  4. Mix and Mingle! This is where the party begins. I am blessed to have over 2,500 followers and this is a great opportunity for many of my friends to meet each other. You guys are amazing and I think a lot of you would enjoy meeting and following one another.
  5. In the spirit of the Holiday/November season, be sure to say what you’re thankful for and what your favorites season food/drink is, along with your other comments!
  1. Remember, you never have to follow anyone just because they follow you. However, it is good manners to always return a page visit for a page visit. Did someone stop by your blog, like or leave a comment? Do the same for them! It only takes a minute.
  2. Don’t forget to REBLOG! Spread the fun by encouraging your own followers to join in the party! This is the best way to attract new bloggers by spreading the word.

  2. Hello! That’s really cool! A fun way to meet others! Thanks for taking a glance at my page! I am just starting out blogging. My blog is called Brazen Imperfection, and it’s about breaking the stereotypes that we have to be perfect (2 Corinthians 12:9) – as moms, employees, wives, friends, etc. We were made to have flaws! I plan to discuss things as deep as postpartum depression and as lighthearted as the last time I folded a basket of laundry – with a whole lot of Jesus searching in between!

    Here’s my link:

  4. Brenda, this is a great idea. Your posts are always encouraging. We all have struggles, but there’s always reason to stay hopeful. My blog is called Mom in Progress, because that’s what I am. I want to always work on being a better mama and I’m thankful for local and online mom friends that share the same experiences (both good and bad) with me. And who doesn’t like bragging on their kids?

  5. Hi! My name is Gretchen and I am a second-year college student in Minnesota. I love reading your blogs because they are faith-based and I was attracted to your page because you call us friends and always ask how we are doing. I just started my blog this past May, it is a life-style blog! I want to be informative and encouraging while also being vulnerable, all while bringing glory to God and leading people to His Kingdom. Some interesting things about my blog are my Photo Journal and my Writing Prompt Wednesdays. I’d love it if you’d check it out and promote it!

  10. Hi! I’m Jenny! My blog is Teacher Mom Talks. It’s about my journey which is always growing and changing. I began Teacher Mom Talks as a podcast while I was teaching. Recently, I’ve resigned from teaching and I’m home with my four year old and one year old. I typically focus on topics that pertain to a teacher, mom, wife, etc. but I actually can’t say I’m 100% sure what the true and ultimate purpose of my blog is yet. I’m working on that…that’s why it’s a journey. I always love to connect with others so thank you for hosting this great party! 💖https://teachermomtalks.wordpress.com

    1. Are you ready to start a movement? I’m ready if you are… I’ve started a Blog at http://www.PalmThis.com and started a twitter account (@PalmThis) to talk about this, the TRUTH. I think everyone is waking up and ready to start an open discussion. It’s just a forum for everyone to discuss their thoughts and the tough questions. Please tell me what you think.

      Liked by 1 person

      1. It is a great idea, though if your not careful, the discussion about what is TRUTH, can become an argument about who is right.
        A movement can only be done with prayer and a basis of TRUTH. Do you believe the Bible is the basis for Truth? There is scientific and historical evidence that proves that the Bible is true.
        What is your reason for beginning a movement? What is TRUTH to you???🌻

      2. I agree and appreciate the feedback! I think the TRUTH can be “Interpreted” for everyone. I think the Truth is different for everyone. That’s why there are Parables in the Bible. Times aren’t the same today as they were with Adam and Eve. We’ve come a LONG way since then.

  12. Ack I hit the wrong key! …or I can embrace the adventure. In the last two years of blogging my faith has increased and I cannot stop blogging about God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus. My blog has transitioned to a Christian Blog to inspire others (and myself) to follow our dreams as God intended. Come along for the adventure! I am most thankful for my wonderful family and the presence of the Creator in my day to day life. My favorite flavor in food and drink is Chocolate! enough said! God Bless!

  13. Hi Brenda – Oh my Goodness, I love your blog! You stopped by and liked my blog review (thank you oh so much!) of Dead Sea Rising, Jerry Jenkins’ new novel and I am so glad you did as it allowed me to come check YOU out. I love my Jesus to distraction and am God’s Girl for sure and am ecstatic to meet someone who is too! I haven’t blogged much lately but am beginning again. I am grateful for the opportunity and blessing to be a women’s group leader in my church and have a passion for helping women find hope and healing and joy in living. I mainly write women’s devotionals and inspirational thoughts. From time to time I also review a book or log my thoughts on current events. Thanks so much for having a blog party!

  15. Hello. My name is Britt. My blog is called My Attempt at Adulting, and it sort of like a public diary of my experiences transforming into adulthood. O recent posts, I talked about my attempt at vegan is, I remind us all to stay in the present during the mundane, and how to avoid a budget weekend trip fail unlike me. The topics I post about are: inspiration, food and health, travel and leisure, my Etsy shop, and adult shenanigans (basically a miscellaneous page). I’ve always liked writing so I wanted to use my blog to encourage and inspire others in different areas of life.

    I am grateful for my family who has supported me, even when they didn’t quite understand everything I decided to do (like start an Etsy shop selling cash envelopes lol). I am very blessed to have all of my daily needs met, and also some things that I want. I am also thankful for everyone who supports me. And finally, I am grateful for all of the bloggers who write unapologetically about what they think and believe. In the blogging world, it’s more accepted to Bryn is way than in the real world.

    Well, thanks fo reading!

  17. Suddenly, I’m feeling a bit shy. Is that strange? It’s the small talk that makes me uncomfortable I guess, but here I go. Hi, my name is Tina. My blog is focused on God, family, love and anything else that I find quite wonderful, encouraging, humerous or interesting.

    I’m thankful for God’s care and provisions including all of the people He puts in my life. My favorite seasons are Spring and Summer, but I do appreciate the beauty in all of the seasons; I just love watching things come back to life again, so Spring is quite wonderful to me. Also I get cold easily so warmer months are definitely easier to get through.

    And now I am feeling awkward like I often do in a room full of people So that’s about all I can think to say right now *blush*

    Thanks Brenda! You’re a wonderful hostess. ❤

  19. Hello Everyone! My name is Theresa Adams, praying that all is well in the name of Jesus! I started blogging after I retired, writing/blogging has always given given me a certain peace of mind. When I started my blog page, it felt like the answer to my prayers. I have a platform where I can share my writings of devotional and inspirational writings with everyone who reads them. I’m thankful for my family, friends both new and old and most importantly, I’m thankful to have a Father who loves me unconditionally through all of my faults he still loves me and showers his amazing grace and mercy upon my life.

    I enjoy reading other people blogs that is faith based, uplifting and motivating.

    May God Bless each of you with words of wisdom and understanding and may we all continue to use the platform to spread the Word of God, to share the love of God, encouraging and uplifting others who need that “Word” of encouragement to lift them up. We can all be the beacon of light at someone’s dark tunnel.

  22. Hi!! Everyone!! It’s My Journey With Jesus Christ….This is a blessing Brenda!! God Bless you. Oh and by the way Brenda that snow looks beautiful!! 🙂 I started blogging years ago in my journal tablets before I knew anything about Blogging online. I Start blogging because it was a healing for me. Jesus Christ has brought me a long way. I wouldn’t be who I am today and to be able to share the adverstiy of my journey. It is whatever the Holy Sprit brings to me to share is what I share. I am retired not by choose, I have worked all my life. I’m a jack of all trades you can say. I am one of those people that will at least try it. Some years ago I was diagnose with Lupus. It was very devasting to me. Lupus does a lot of things to our minds, and bodies. But everyday I tell people “Today is The Best Day or Greatest Day of My Life!! ” I’m so thankful that Jesus Christ is in my life. I can write more and more, but I’m going to stop here. LOL LOL https://sistertosister53.wordpress.com/ It’s a blessing to meet everyone!! God has given it to us, and we need to use it and not bury it!! Amen!! Amen!! \0/\0/

    In my blog I share a lot about my interactions with diverse cultures, my life following Jesus, how Jesus has helped me living with autoimmune problems and depression. I teach English Second Language in Lincoln NE where we have thousands of refugees and immigrants. God has led me to have a ministry among them as well as teach ESL. I tend to post every day because I enjoy writing.

  24. Great idea! My name is Heather Davis and I’m the mom of three full-time teenagers plus several part-time kids of various ages. Needless to say, my analog life often occupies the bulk of my time! I’ve been blogging since my teens were tiny but I changed blogs in 2015. Currently, I try to post once or twice a week (though I don’t always succeed) and the topics are always either a prayer for the global Church or some lesson the Lord has given me recently through study of and meditation on His word of truth. I’m very much a lover of the word, the Kingdom, and the Lord Himself and am trying to build fluency in Hebrew so I can move on to learning Greek!

    Feel free to stop by (and I will do so as soon as I’m able). 🙂

  28. Hello I blog about music. The music is usually related to my internet radio show called The Happening. I have been doing radio shows for about three years. Since I moved to DWR, I’ve been with them for just over a year. On Easter Sunday 2018, I put on a show that was just Gospel and spiritual music. I usually have a mix of music genres. This show has had a terrific response, from all kinds of people. The biggest response came from what appear to be practicing Christians. Having said that a good number of listeners have continued to listen. I now include a gospel/spiritual section in most of my shows, which has broadened my musical knowledge and I feel that it brings a different kind of energy to The Happening. I have other interests besides music, that include fashion and beauty, although I haven’t written about these topics as yet.

    Hello and God bless you! My name is Ryan Callahan. I’m just a guy who loves Jesus and I am out here striving to help people come to know Jesus. I have been following and serving the Lord since I got saved in October of 1996. My blog is all about helping people come to know the Lord, helping people understand the Bible, and ministering to a lost and hurting world. I came to Jesus out of a terrifying supernatural experience my family lived through when I was in High School. My walk with Christ stayed supernatural after I got saved, but in a great way! I wrote a book about my testimony called “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life.” I have been blogging since 8-10-18 when the Lord called me to do it. I’m all about fulfilling the Great Commission that Jesus gave us in Matthew 28:18-20 and I am Romans 1:16 unashamed!!! Grace and peace to you all!

  30. Hello everyone! Great to meet you!
    My name is Shanon Crenshaw and I live in the beautiful state of Washington. Several years ago, the Lord spoke to my heart about writing. It was never something I would have thought of on my own, but he has been slowly watering the seed He planted years ago. I love to hear testimonies of what God has done, and is doing in people’s lives, the hope that Jesus brings to us through all of life’s circumstances.
    My blog is a mixture of testimony, scripture, and whatever the Holy Spirit speaks to my heart at that given moment. My blog truly belongs to Jesus because He alone is Lord of my life.
    I am incredibly thankful to daily see the changes the Lord is making, through prayer, in the lives of those around me and in my community. God is teaching me to see Him in everything! Praise God that He is sovereign!
    I love the “comfort foods” of the season and love all of the pies, cookies, other assorted baked goodies that seem to be everywhere! 🙂

I’m Quin and my blog is called Redeeming Salvation (although it’s listed as Matt6and33 due to formatting). I post on Thursday’s about things such as bible studies, godly relationships, fitness, beauty, and everyday motivation. I’m still a new blogger so bare with me as I grow into a more evolved blogger.
