Thank you for “One Lovely Blog Award”


This post is long overdue. It arrived the day before we left Arizona and I promised to pass it along as soon as I could, so thank you Heather for your patience. Now that we have the internet installed in our new home. I hope to get back to writing regularly.

So thank you Heather for thinking of me. What a sweet surprise and such a lovely award. I am always humbled when someone believes my work is worthy of recognition.  You can check out Heather’s blog at  or  Currently she is a hard working student and amazingly versatile!  Who knew this beautiful young lady, who looks like a fashion model, works on automobiles with the same surgical procedures as she does attending medical school? (I hope she’s one the “Versatile Blogging Award” as well!)

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
  • Add the One Lovely Blog logo to your post.
  • Share 7 facts/or things about yourself
  • Nominate  (up to if you’re new to blogging) 15 bloggers you admire and inform the nominees by commenting on their blog.

So 7 things people might not know about me:

  1. I recently moved from Arizona to Ohio  (Whither thou goest) to join my husband at his pastor position of a small, loving congregation.
  2. Some of my blogging friends have become as close as family!
  3. I have had a recent book published entitled, “Life’s Too Short to Eat Bad Cheese . . .”  a perfect Christmas gift! Great for women’s Bible studies too!
  4. I participated in theater when I was younger and was a children’s theater director for a couple of years.
  5. I have been a military wife, golf pro’s wife and now a pastor’s wife all wrapped around one guy.
  6. I was once overweight but keep healthy and control my weight through the discipline of loving God more than chocolate or processed foods.
  7. Been to 49 states and I’m happy to say that Ohio has some of the friendliest residents in the US!

Now to nominate up to 15 bloggers deserving of this award. All of these are truly lovely and worth discovering:


“I thank my God every time I remember you.”  (Philippians 3:1)

  1. Congratulations, Ellie. You are a most beautiful writer with a heart and soul to match. Truly “Lovely” and well deserving of this award. Fantastic! Blessings to you, Ellie, with many thanks for your most generous nomination.


      • Oh, yes, Ellie, I will definitely pray for it to be a HUGE seller. Where can I purchase it? Amazon? Please let me know. And, again, thank you so much for your generous nomination together with your thoughtful understanding. Bless you, always.


      • That would be so fantastic! It can be purchased at Barnes & or Amazon (but Barnes & Noble has the cover photo displayed,which I appreciated and amazon is taking its sweet time!) I just got a comment that stated the nominee was going to follow all my other wonderful nominees so you’ll have a great follower soon, yeah!


  2. Love to hear that Ohio residents are so friendly! When we moved to Eastern Washington State from San Diego, we immediately noticed how friendly people were. Sure made for a much easier transition. Glad you both are settling in well to your new home. How are your dogs adjusting? Ours love having the Orchards to run in and the Columbia River to play in.


  3. Thank you so much for this award and congratulations on your award as well!! I have enjoyed following your blog!
    Glad to hear you are now a fellow Ohioan!! I live in the North Central Ohio region — we might have to connect!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
    Blessings of ARTistry, CREATivity & BEaUty, Jody
