Giveaway Winner & Blog Awards

I'd like to thank Lu over at I Am Just Lu for choosing me for a "Lovely Blog Award".
Cute!  Thanks!  I guess she really enjoyed the Family Proclamation Celebration that we did last month!  If you missed it, you can find links to all of the posts here.

Here's how the award works: 
  1. Accept the award. Post in on your blog with the name of the person who has granted the award and his or her blog link.
  2. Pay it forward to 5 other bloggers that you have newly discovered.
  3. Contact those blog owners and let them know they've been chosen.
And here are the exceptional blogs that I've chosen to pass the award on to.  Each woman on this list has inspired me and brightened my days over the last little while.  (Truly, I wish I could pick about 25 bloggers...not 5, but such is life!)
I've linked to specific posts of theirs that I have really liked:

1.  Samurai Mom

2.  The Sleepytime Gal


3.  Simple Inspiration

4.  Women in the Scriptures

5.  Recipe Cut Outs

In other news, Stephanie of Diapers and Divinity gave special recognition to two of the posts from our Family Celebration last month:  Misty's post about Making Service a Way of Life for your Family and my Mom's post on the Warnings and Forewarnings in The Family Proclamation.  That was pretty cool!  Thanks, Steph!

And last, but certainly not least, the winner of the book "Jesus Calling" is 

Naomi Carmen of Mangostar.  
Naomi, I love your blog...I love your uniqueness, 
and I hope that you and your kids enjoy the book!


  1. lots of fun, awards and recognition are always welcome. good job on your month long celebration-you brought lots of participation from many.

  2. Yay, I am so excited I won the book!!! We will definitely LOVE it. They already enjoy reading the "Jesus book" aka The Book of Mormon and the Bible, so anything that is about Jesus is a big hit with them! Thank you!!!

  3. Congrats to all, and I'm glad that your month of celebrating the family was so well-received!


  4. you are so sweet! Thank you! I have enjoyed getting to know you better!

  5. I think it is so cool you liked to specific posts. Good idea!

  6. Jocelyn I wanted to let you know that I got my family plaque from the is beautiful and I already put it up on my family wall. Because we are a "FAMILY TO CROW ABOUT." I will photograph it and post it on my blog as soon as my camera comes back from the company which is getting repaired. Hugs and thanks.
