Winner & Housekeeping! It's Blog Award Time!
It's time to announce a winner, give a few awards, and in general attend to some housekeeping!

So without further adieu,

We have a winner for my book giveaway! This week I interviewed Marla Taviano about her book Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time: A Reflective Journey Through Your Baby's First Year . And the winner of that book is:

Kristy at Mommy in Pink! She left a comment that she has a four-year-old who is teething, so she'd probably appreciate this a lot!

So congratulations, Kristy!

And for the rest of you, remember that every month I award a free book of my own to whichever blog owner sends me the most new visitors. You're too late for November, but if you add me to your blogroll now, you have a good chance for December!

Now, onto some other stuff.

Jennifer at Through the Storms of Life gave me an award earlier this month! I appreciate it, and I'm sorry I never got around to writing a post on it!

Here's what it says:

This award acknowledges the values that every blogger shows in his/her effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values every day.

And now I get to nominate ten women in return! I'm going to pick an eclectic bunch: some moms, some worship leaders, some political blogs, just to give you a variety.

So here they are, in no particular order:

I love Terry at Breathing Grace. She's always so thoughtful, and she bases everything on Scripture.

Cheryl at Lifestyle of Worship has such thoughtful posts up on what it means to lead worship, to worship in church, and to worship in everyday life. And she's a friend. A good one. But she moved away. But I'm not bitter.

Suzanne at Blue Wave Canada writes such great posts on pro-life issues. She's coming at things from a political point of view, but I appreciate her!

Meredith at Like Merchant Ships has the best blog about saving money. And the video she posted about consumerism at Christmas has become one of my favourites. I've shown it to everyone this week, and my pastor's even playing it in church tomorrow! So thanks for the heads up, Meredith!

Dawn at Because I Said So is a personal friend whose doing just amazing! She writes the funniest posts, and has a new book coming out that you all just have to get!

Sarah at Life in the Parsonage writes so honestly about being a pastor's wife. It's great!

Of course I have to mention Homeschool Blog Awards, since I occasionally contribute! If you're a homeschooler, this is a must blog to visit!

I always find Donetta at My Quiet Corner peaceful to read.

Kelly at Love Well has many great craft posts, and other typical mom ones that are thought-provoking and funny.

And finally Tracey at Grace Comes by Hearing I have to nominate because her adopted baby is arriving any day now!

Whew, that was a long list. But visit them! They're my friends. Now have a great weekend!

I'm having over a dozen teenage girls over today to watch Sense & Sensibility and Emma (1996) and I have a sore throat and a headache coming on! So pray for me!

Awww thank you for the award Sheila! You're so sweet!
And I loved your marriage post. Unfortunately, I think mine is beyond repair, but you gave good advice here. :)
