Thank you so much Renee for thinking of me. Friends, if you do not follow her please check out her blog. She has tackled the Alphabet Post Challenge superbly!

• Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
• Give a brief story of how your blog started.
• Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
• Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.
How it all began:
My blogging journey began as a Facebook page called Spiritual Leaders of the Family and then Resurrecting The Redeemed For Porn Addiction where I would share pieces of my story in hopes of helping someone not make the same mistakes I did growing up as a porn watcher/sex addict and then later as a man who didn’t know how to lead his family the right way. It was a friend’s influence that prompted me to start blogging.
I am forever grateful to her for I have met some of the most amazing people in this wonderful community/family called the blogging world. People whom I have never met in person yet mean the world to me. Thanks guys for all your love, support and prayers!
My advice for new bloggers:
Be you! I understand the need for anonimnity, for some, but don’t be afraid to speak what is really on your heart. Be real!
Don’t concentrate on getting numbers. Numbers Lie! Because one day you may get a comment like this…
Stuart, I was in the casino yesterday morning and for some strange reason started to look at Facebook. The first thing I saw was a link to “something to Stu over” so I tapped it and began to read right there at a slot machine. I might add that this was Sunday morning at the time I should of been in church. The blog was about you asking forgiveness from a porn star. As I read thru your blog, a friend of mine leaned over my shoulder to see what I was doing and began reading the blog also. As we read thru the blog we looked at each other about halfway thru and both of us had tears in our eyes. I cannot explain but the presence of God was so all over us it was unbelievable!!! It was so inspiring to read and I want you to know that God is using you because God spoke to me thru your words! Keep up the wonderful work of God. I love you brother!
and then you will understand why numbers really mean nothing, because that one person God wants to read what you have said will. That’s what matters!
Build relationships by actually reading and commenting on other bloggers posts. That is how you gain an real audience. Do the awards and tags. Share yourself so other can get to know you better.
My nominees are:
Please do not feel obligated to participate. Just my little way of saying I appreciate you!
