At the beginning of 2010 I made a commitment to myself to blog three days a week. I didn’t know learning the blogging process would devour most of my writing time. I didn’t know I would be blessed with new online friends whose inspired words, comments, and pictures have encouraged, motivated, instructed, and edified me.
Words – written and spoken – are so powerful. I’m honored to share the company of a collection of bloggers who choose to use their words to administer grace to their readers.
Shortly after I started In Truer Ink, author and blogger Jill Kemerer sent me a gift, a blog award. Her words of encouragement and praise ministered to me, and ever since I’ve been thinking about “paying it forward” to the bloggers who have been such a blessing to me.
I don’t know the rules about blog awards. I don’t know if there’s appropriate protocol that should be followed. What I do know is that the following blogs have been a blessing to me this year spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Through their words, these bloggers have ministered to me, and because of that, I want to “give honor where honor is due.”
The best thing you could do for these bloggers is to check out their blogs, become followers or subscribers, and let them know their labor is a blessing!

Seriously, my time is as limited as the next person’s, but taking the time to read these blogs is something that feeds my soul. Their words are as valuable to me as any devotional in my library.
