The Sunshine Blogger Award

I was nominated a while back by Ali of Humble Mumblings for The Sunshine Blogger Award. Ali writes beautifully and i love how she takes her time to go deep into writing her blogs. One of my recent favourite read of hers is a post on Ruth and Naomi. It’s a must read. She shines the light of Jesus with her blog and i would encourage you to check her out.

Thank you so much Ali. This nomination is deeply appreciated. I pray God graces you to do more work for Him. And may you not miss heaven in Jesus name. Amen.

Sunshine blogger award is one of the awards given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who they find inspiring just in case you are wondering😊.

  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions;
  • List the rules and include the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

The 11 questions i was asked and answers.

What made you start blogging? I started blogging after fighting the leading of the Holy Spirit to for a while. I had to give in and do what He was telling me to do. Also it is an avenue to share about God and my faith.

Who inspires you most? Gosh, it’s difficult to pick one. I will be greedy and go with 2 if that’s ok. They have to be my dad and my mum. They’ve always been. My mum is a goal getter and an achiever. She doesn’t shrink with pressure. She is one of the strongest women i know. My dad is very understanding and he’s such an encourager. He studies people and he’s one of the most intelligent humans i have ever met. My dad knows a little bit about everything. He reads books like crazy and i got my written flare from him.

Are you a dog or a cat person? Ermmm not a pet person to be honest because i don’t like the idea of having an extra thing to do or look after lol.. But if i was to choose i think i will go with dog.

What was the last movie you watched and would you recommend it? Ok at this point i reckon you are thinking this girl is boring. But sorry to bore you even more. I don’t do movies. I can barely sit through a whole movie and even if i do, i won’t remember the title when asked lol.

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? I am a Nigerian and i love Nigeria. I really have a soft spot for my motherland. I would live in a nice village there that is if i have constant light, and basic amenities are met.

What is your favourite book and why? The Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. This book helped me get my mind together when i almost lost it due to life challenges.

If you could have one wish granted you, what would it be? It would definitely be to be in a room with Bishop TD Jakes, The Obamas, Oprah and Chimamanda Adichie. Weird combination i know. I would love to delve into their wealth of knowledge and yeah just have a nice chat over lunch. 

Name one song you’ll never stop listening to? I love worship. I don’t particularly have one to be honest. But i will go with Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin.

Worst travel experience ever? Ok i have only told this story to a few people. So this was when i was in Nigeria. I went with a friend to a different state to write an entrance exam to a Uni we wanted to attend. We were really struggling to get transport home because there no coach available and we happened to get a lift. I was very reluctant to get in but however i decided to because i wasn’t sure if i was going to leave there otherwise. To cut the long story short, this man who happened to have a bible and stickers about God in his car turned out not to be exactly the image he painted and he told us he was going to take us to his hotel. Thankfully he stopped by a petrol station to get petrol and that was how we managed to escape and hop into a taxi that was available. Yea that was very scary. 

What’s the story behind your blog’s name? I am a christian who hasn’t had the sleekest faith walk. God showed and gave me grace when i didn’t deserve it. The grace helped me in overcoming the pain that came with guilt as a result of the bad choices i made. 

How would you describe yourself in three words? Extrovert, honest, encourager

Phewwwww… So now time to throw the baton!

    1. Sunshine blogger award is one of the awards given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who they find inspiring. I nominated you because your blog inspires me a lot. It’s easy to write about things that are appealing but it takes guts to blog about things people don’t want to hear. Your blog name alone challenges me to take up my cross daily and follow Christ. This I find inspiring.😊
