The Liebster Award

I was recently nominated for The Liebster Award by Ms. Patricia Townsend, who runs the blog Voice From the End Of Town at http://hsmentormom.blogspot.com. The blog is about her Christian faith and life in Christ. My heartfelt appreciation goes out to her for this warm gesture, and I am really touched and humbled by it. The Liebster Award is a real award that allows bloggers to give recognition to other bloggers and encourage them to continue blogging. To qualify for this award, you must follow the rules below:
  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger, and link back to their blog.
  2. Tell 11 random facts about yourself.  
  3. Answer the 11 questions that the nominating blogger came up with. 
  4. List 11 bloggers who (as far as you can tell) have 200 followers or less and you believe deserve a little recognition and encouragement to continue.
  5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers you nominated to answer.
  6. Go to the pages of those you have nominated and tell them. 
  7. Do NOT nominate someone who has nominated you.
I should have done all this sooner (as I had informed Ms. Patricia), but have been so busy that I haven’t had time to post as much as I would like to. Well, so much for the delay. I have to do this and do it now, so here goes:
11 Random Facts About Me
  1. I am the first born in a family of five kids: four girls and one boy.
  2. I got born again in 2004 after listening to a sermon on TBN.
  3. I’m happy to be single and see it as an opportunity to devote my time to seeking and serving God more (1 Corinthians 7). I don’t mind staying that way.
  4. I recently shaved my hair and find that it is easier for me to manage it that way.
  5. I would love to visit Israel sometime so as to see and experience the places and things I read about in the Bible.
  6. I have only been out of the country (Kenya) once in my lifetime, when I was 5 years old and accompanied my mum to the UK.
  7. My favorite childhood pastime was to write, read and narrate fairy tales.
  8. I used to be a Catholic before I got born again, and now I’m the only one in my family who is not one.
  9. My favorite-est snack is roasted peanuts.
  10. When it comes to pets, I prefer cats to dogs. I find them to be so much more graceful and elegant. Maybe this is because I grew up surrounded by as many as eight cats at a go. As I write this, there are actually eight cats in my mum’s house right now.
  11. I hate pessimism. I like to keep a positive outlook at all times.
Patricia’s Questions To Me 
1. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging in April last year. That is nine months ago.
2. What made you start blogging?
I started blogging so as to shine back the light that God has shone upon me in this dark world that I too was once blinded by (Matthew 28:19-20).
3. What was one of the greatest moments in your life?
When I finally understood God’s plan of salvation and got born again.
4. If you made a "bucket list", what would be #1?
Lead the whole world to Christ.
5. What's your favorite color and why?
Truth be told, I really don’t have a favorite color, but I prefer cool colors because I find them to be easier to blend and more professional-looking.
6. What season do you prefer?
Spring.
7. Maserati or minivan?
Maserati
8. Paris or Vegas?
Paris.
9. Moonlight serenade or dinner & a movie?
Dinner.
10. What one thing do you wish everyone understood about you?
I do not like to dwell on the past or on the negatives. I perform better when I'm encouraged rather than picked on or torn down.
11. In 100 years, how do you want to be remembered?
As a true lover and follower of God.

  3. Thanks for the nomination. I will have to pass on participating. I am too preoccupied with my preaching schedule, blogging, and podcasting. Not enough hours in the day.

    1. That is okay. I understand. It is important for us to prioritize what we indulge in so that we can focus on whatever matters the most. Keep up the good work.

  5. I am humbled and challenged both at the same time. For you to even consider me is an honor in and of itself. For me to go forward About the Master's Business will continue only as I am anointed and equipped from Him and Him alone. May I never post a blog apart from prayer and the leading of the Holy Spirit. Amen!
