The Kennedy Award of Excellence is a registered award of excellence for blogs through its writing, presentation and objectives. It fosters human values; promoting intellectual, emotional and moral growth of peers.
I am honored to have been nominated by THREE amazing bloggers. Each of them inspires me to be a better writer, a better person & most importantly to be bolder in my faith.
I want to thank MATT of Jesusluvsall who writes about his faith in Jesus, living with chronic illness, teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) & US citizenship to immigrants from many cultures. He also hosts a weekly online Blogger Chat where we discuss things such as building your audience, world events & of course our faith in Jesus. You can email Matt HERE if you would like to participate.
I want to thank BEVERLY of Becoming the Oil & the Wine. She is a published author who helps others decipher end-times prophecy and other complex Biblical concepts. Another of her passions is to help others to reach their full potential as a writer.
And last, but certainly not least, I want to thank DAWN of Drawing Closer to Christ. Dawn is also a published author. Dawn writes primarily about finding JOY each and every day by trusting in Christ and living out that faith boldly.

QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED:
1. When did you start blogging?
In late 2017 I started an exercise with some coworkers to write exactly 100 words on any topic for 100 days. I posted these on my Facebook page Barb’s 100 Words for 100 Days. It wasn’t until April of 2018 that I started officially blogging at My Life in Our Father’s World. Those original “100 Word” posts are located HERE. Every once in a while I challenge myself to stick to exactly 100 words for a week or a month. Just to work on being more precise in my writing.
2. What is your blogging objective?
I strive to write what God tells me to write, when He tells me to write. If an idea comes to me & won’t let go, I know it’s time to get busy. I write about jail ministry, working with preschoolers, holidays & of course my faith in Christ.
3. What motivated you to start blogging?
During the 100 Words for 100 Days exercise some readers encouraged me to write longer pieces so eventually I .took the plunge & dove into blogging.
4. Do you see blogging as a long-term goal?
I really enjoy blogging & the blogging community that I am part of. I will continue to blog until God tells me otherwise. It is, after all, His platform. He just uses my hands to do the typing.
5. Is there a specific topic you enjoy?
I am constantly amazed when God gives a bunch of us the same topic or passage of scripture and we all come at it in a way that is uniquely ours. What an exciting way to “study” The Word.
I invite any of my dear readers to participate in this exercise & share some of your favorite bloggers with me.
