The Liebster Award 2019 | 2nd Nomination


I am both humbled and honored to be nominated for The Liebster Award by my dear friend Purple Rose.

This friendship began when we started following each other on Twitter and has come to mean so much to me. Not only is she blogging but she has stepped out in faith and has shared a part of her story in her Mr. Godfather series. I am blessed to call this woman of God my friend and fellow blogger!

HERE ARE THE RULES:
Acknowledge the blogger that gave it to you and display the award.
Answer 11 questions that the blogger gave you.
Give 11 random thoughts about yourself.
Nominate 11 other bloggers and notify them of their nominations.
Ask your nominees 11 questions.

Here are the questions posed by Purple Rose:


1. Why do you write about the particular subject matter on your current blog?

Well, since my blog has changed somewhat over the years it’s the simple fact that we all have struggles we are dealing with in life, whether it’s an addiction or whatever and the one thing we all need is hope! If something I write can lift someone’s spirit and give encouragement to press on then I’m happy!


2. What or who motivates you to keep on writing?

I suppose I answered this one in the first question.


3. When is your favorite time of the day?

The evening time. I get to spend a little time with the kids while they are at Taekwondo. In the summer time on my days off it’s any part of the day 🙂


4. What part of the country do you live in?

I live in Louisiana. And no, alligators do not lead Santa’s sleigh.


5. What season is your favorite?

I do not do cold. I can’t stand being cold so my favorite season is summer.


6. What is your favorite food?

Why can’t all of it be my favorite? Though, I love Chinese and down home cooking the way my Granny’s would cook.


7. If you have chosen one, what is your life verse from the Bible?


8. What is your favorite Bible Story?

I honestly can not say I have a true favorite. I guess the woman caught in adultery would be one and then there is Lot and his wife and how Abraham tried to “convince” God to save Sodom and Gomorrah if he could find 10 righteous people.


9. Who is your favorite Bible character?

I’ve always said Paul was my favorite and not because he wrote like almost the whole New Testament. It is because I can relate to him…the chief of sinners saved my grace!


10. What do you treasure in your heart most about GOD?

This is a really hard question to answer because technically I should say everything.

But what I treasure most is the fact that He never EVER gave up on me!


11. How are you HIS hands and Feet in this current season of your life?

In my current season I’m not sure. I guess by me still being intentional with the Daily Inspiration posts I am. Thank you Kathy for always commenting on them and keeping me motivated 🙂 But in other areas I know I should be doing more. Maybe this will be the spurring moment as I had to take a real good look at myself…a spiritual inventory if you will.

Here are 11 random things about Stu…

Like Steve wrote about the other day in his post Sunny Days I don’t like my socks getting wet.

I prefer owning a hard copy of a CD over digital and will import if I have to.

I have no tattoos…yet. I want an eagle on the back of my right shoulder.

My favorite animal is the wild mustang.

My favorite bird is the bald eagle.

I have seen Stryper 15 times in concert. Once in Shreveport. Once in Monroe. And the rest in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area 🤘🤘

Once you are my friend, you will always be my friend…

Oh, I have I told you I love my kids 🙂 ❤❤

I also love my CR family. What a journey the past 7 years have been!

I still love animated movies!

I prefer hardback books over paperback.

So many are worthy of this award. It’s always tough just picking said amount…but here we go….

Man, coming up with questions is always one the hardest parts of these awards for me for some reason. Let me see...🤔

1. Why, as Christians, do we not stand up more to the evils in this world?

2. Why is that we as people in general look down on the homeless, when in fact most of us could be one choice away from being in their shoes?

3. What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

4. What do you do when you are working on a post and just hit a freaking wall and nothing you write seems like the right words?

5. What are your top 2 posts you have written, whether it be in your opinion or based on stats?

6. What part of the world do you live in?

7. Do you feel you are doing enough for the Lord at this point in your life?

8. What is your favorite childhood memory?

9. What would you like to be remembered for?

10. What or who inspires you to be the best you can be in life?

11. How many children to have? Share pictures if you like 🙂

To those I have chosen to participate please do not feel obligated to. I know how busy life can get. Just know that I appreciate you and your blog!

  1. Oh brother Stuart, you are so very kind. I have been going through a difficult time. Some days, I feel completely broken and I can’t even convince myself to write. That’s when I run across a post, tweet or a bible verse you have posted that gives me hope. You have no idea what your friendship means to me. 💕 Your words of encouragement feed my soul.

    l hope that one day I can encourage you just the same. I am so thankful that we met.

    1. I’m so sorry you are going through a difficult time sis. I will be praying with you in this. If you want you can send me an email prayer request and I will forward it to the prayer group 🙂

      Thank you so much for your words of encouragement. It truly means a lot ❤

      I’m grateful that I encourage you!

      And you do encourage me. I know the sheer willpower it took to do the Godfather series. That alone is an encouragement to us all! Especially to Destiny!!

      Love ya sis!

    1. Thank Kathy! There was a time were they became overwhelming…sorry of…and almost thought about not accepting them anymore. But, they are a break from the normal routine and allows others to see things about me I may never write about…like the wet socks 😂. I have also gotten a few post ideas from other bloggers answers.

      I am thankful you enjoy the Daily Inspirations. Means a lot!
