I was just nominated for The Sunshine Bloggers Award! This nomination really took me by surprise! I want to first start off by thanking my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! For he knows when we need to be encouraged to keep moving Forward! Next I would like to thank Ama who has an amazingly beautiful blog called SoakinginGodsword for nominating me for this award! When you have a chance I highly suggest you check it out. I promise that you will be richly blessed! To Ama may God continue to bless you all the more abundantly!
By accepting this award. I agree to answer a few questions about myself. It is my hope that it would allow you a chance to get to know me better and in return hopefully a chance for me to get to know you better as well. So here we go!!
Ama: Where do you get inspiration from your blog post?
Me: From God and life! Everything that I write is not is not just to encourage others, but myself as well.
Ama: Morning or night person?
Me: Definitely night. If I had my way I would never wake up before noon!
Ama: Favorite bible verse?
Me: My favorite bible verse comes from Romans. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations: according to that which was spoken. So shall thy seed be. ( Romans 4:18) I love this scripture because it reminds me that God will do in my life what he has personally promised me. No matter what my situation or circumstances look like. It reminds me to have hope in hopeless situations!
Ama: When did you give your life to God?
Me: I gave my life to God as a teen, but I really didn’t become serious until the year 2012. I remember being angry with God over an unanswered prayer. I told him that’s it I’m through. I’m not saying I don’t believe in you any more but I’m through. Instantly he answered me back and said what do you mean that your through? You haven’t even started yet. That night as I slept I felt God’s presence as I never felt it before. He wasn’t angry with me. That night in my hurt and anger I felt his love like never before but most of all I felt his patience with me in my temper tantrum! A month later I began my teaching ministry!
Ama: Do you prefer a large family or a small one?
Me: Truthfully size does not matter. I prefer a family that supports one another in the good and the bad.
Ama: Favorite book and why?
Me: The bible. If you’re talking in general I really don’t have one ( sorry to disappoint)
Ama: Who is your mentor?
Me: I have more than one my mom for one I’ve watched her bounce back from sickness time and time again. She gives her all in everything she does. My older sister Laronda Pyles she’s been through more than anyone that I know and she still keeps pushing forward. My middle sister Latasha Watson her faith is like none I’ve ever seen before. She always has a smile even in the midst of a trial. Lastly my best friend Alicia Watson-Williams she accomplishes everything that she puts her mind to and she conquers in a male dominated work space.
Ama: If you were to eat one thing all your life, what would it be?
Me: Boudain, it’s not known world-wide it’s mostly a Louisiana and Texas thing. Even though there starting to sell it in more places in the south.
Ama: What is that thing you can’t do without?
Me: Time alone. That’s a must everyday for me.
Ama: Introvert or extrovert?
Ama: Please offer a word of encouragement to your readers.
Me: Life is full of ups and downs. Trust that God has a plan for your life. That he knows the beginning from the end. He’s mapped out a wonderful plan for your life trust him with that plan. Especially when you don’t understand or you don’t see how it’s going to work in your favor. remember that the just shall live by its faith!
