Here’s the rules:

1. thank the person who sent you the award

2. share 7 things about yourself

3. grant the award to 15 blogs you like.


Fantastic! What a wonderful way to honor and share our favorite blogs! Thank you so much Dolores for including me in your list of favorites! I feel extremely honored! You have so much talent and such a lovely blog, mine pales in comparison!

Let's see, seven things about myself...

1. I'm married to my best friend, Alex. Together we have 5 wonderfully, special  children and three fabulous grandsons.

2. I'm an author and a teacher. My goal is to become a full time author and a mentor in the classroom. 

3. I believe all things are possible through my belief in God. He has shown me many times in my life that if I wait upon him, what I need will be forthcoming.

4. I have made many, many new friends since my novel Moon Dance was published January 27th, 2010. I treasure my friendships with both my forever friends and my new friends. As I learned in Camp Fire Girls many years ago... make new friends, but keep the is silver and the other gold. 

5. I'm often too wordy! At least that's what a college English professor told me once. Could have something to do with my writing style, could just be my natural tendency to "talk to others" through my writing.

6. I've been told I'm a good listener...I do at least try to be!

7. Seven should be something really special... let's see...My husband, several friends and I are traveling to Wales next summer! I'm so excited to be returning to my ancestral homeland!

Now drum roll please...

I am passing on the torch as it were to some of my favorite blogs, which now have the honor of THE VERSATILE BLOGGER'S AWARD. And the winners are:


  1. Oh was so wonderful to get to know you better this way. I already knew you were a teacher and an author with a tremendous faith in God. I never knew you had five children and three fabulous grandsons. I love your view on old and new friendships too. It's truly my pleasure to have found you as a friend. Blessings to you and yours! D :)

  2. Hi Susan,

    Thanks for awarding my blog the Versatile Blogger's Award!

    Best wishes,


  3. Susan...I seen where you had paid my blog a visit and came over to see what was happening here.
    Boy did I get a surprise. I am deeply touched that you consider my humble blog one of your favorite.

    Altho my blog is officially an "award free" doesn't lessen in any way the honor you lend to it. It's nice to learn more about you also. Thank you for even a mention on a blog of such caliber.

    May our God bless you richly and often.

  4. Susan,
    Thank you so much for adding me to your blog award list. I am humbled. I will do my best to get out my list of 15 this week!
    It's always nice to be noticed for doing something you love!
    God Bless and keep writing!

  5. Thank you all for your responses. My life has been truly blessed by all of you. Our journey is often filled with stones along the wayside, but it is wonderful that God has placed friends beside us to catch us and help us up when we stumble. Often, I have come home from work feeling worn down by the world, but reading your blogs helps to refresh my spirit.
    And Dolores, I have so enjoyed getting to know you as well. It is a privilege and a blessing to be your friend.
    Blessings always,
