Wow! Thank you so much Melanie. What an honor it is to accept this nomination for The Versatile Blogger Award from you sis. Thank you again for thinking of me 🙂 Friends, if you have not checked out Melanie’s blog God Makes All Things New please go do so now. I’ll wait……..la la la……
Ok, now we can continue 🙂
Here is a little history on the award and it’s rules…
What is the Versatile Blogger Award?
I don’t know what’s harder…nominating 15 bloggers that inspire me, because you all do or sharing 7 things about myself.
Guess I’ll start with sharing 7 things about Stu…
From the age of 12, when I ran across my dad’s Playboy magazine, til I was 42 I struggled with sexual integrity that led me down a very dark road. It didn’t stop when I got married. It stopped when the only thing I could do was cry out to God. I had to hit rock bottom.
I love going to Celebrate Recovery. I actually get more out of it than I do Sunday church. Even our pastor said he preaches better when he speaks at CR than behind the pulpit. I believe it is because the masks are off and real issues are openly talked about. Hope and freedom are sought after and not just a tickling of the ear.
I love spending quality time in conversation getting to know someone on a deeper level.
Oh…have I ever mentioned I’m a chocoholic…lol
Sometimes I hate being a male. Simply because, as a male, I get stereotyped based on the a**holes in the world and how they treat women. (More coming on that topic later…if I have the nerve to tackle it)
I love it when I start crying while praying for someone because, to me, it means that the Lord has truly placed that person deeply on my heart. It shows that I love them and care for them deeply.
Lastly, if you take the time to get know me and we become friends, then you have a friend for life. I will always be there if needed. For true friendships are rare and should be cherished.
Now for the nominees…
There are so many that should be nominated, for all of you are unique and touch my heart or mind in one way or another.

Thanks again Melanie for this honor. It’s always so humbling to recognized by our peers 🙂
