MY QUESTIONS TO ANSWER”
How did you get started blogging?
A. I began this blog five years ago after I began to notice the many similarities of mental, physical and Spiritual health to food and godly living.
Where do you find your inspiration?
A. I found inspiration from Biblical illustrations, my husband’s sermons, my pets, my bookshelves as well as specific questions from followers regarding healthy living.
Have you learned any important lessons along the way?
A. Those who focus on people rather than their Creator will always be disappointed. God gives us patience to not expect perfection from others. B. Many are hurting; searching for encouragement, validation and purpose in life. C. Words and integrity matter. If you say you’ll do something, keep your word
What is one thing you can share with others about blogging?
A. One can accumulate friendships from all over the world through blogging and I look forward to seeing these fellow Christians in Heaven where we’ll have eternity to get to know each other in person!
Have you found blogging to be profitable? If so, what’s the secret?
A. Nope, my blog is a ministry and so are my books – although I would hope that those who promised their review, would keep their word. If they didn’t enjoy it, contact me privately.
How long did it take for you to develop your own unique style?
I didn’t realize I had a distinct style until a lady contacted me in Arizona for a seminar. She told me, “I googled, ‘Speaker, Christian, nutritionist . . .’ and congrats, you’re it!” When God moved us from AZ to Ohio, I spoke at her women’s group and we became instant friends going on 3 years now.
Who would you like to read your blog that isn’t reading it now?
Those who are attempting dangerous fad diets! Attempting to become healthier through crazy and illogical ways is not how God intended us to live.
How much time do you spend on your blog every week?
A. Probably a good 10-12 hours by researching, composing, posting and reading/replying to follow up questions.
How long have you been blogging?
A. 5 years without missing a week – (it might be time to take a sabbatical)
Where do you see your blog in the future?
A. Hopefully continuing to motivate others.
What one word describes you?
