The Blogging Community Tag (ENCOURAGE)

Thanks, so much Alexa, for tagging me in this post, and for your beautiful, encouraging words :)

And, for the rest of you - who doesn't think a tag is fun? Let's encourage some people!!!

1. Answer the eight questions (easy enough)
2. Tag some peoples! (any number, but I'm doing one for each category)
3. Link back to Jo (she is the creator and it is good manners)
4. Include the globe picture (hey, it's easier than making one of your own. Thanks Jo!)

This is going to be just a little hard for me, as I don't follow many blogs. But we'll give it a go ;)

To The Dedicated Ones
To the dedicated ones: How do you do it? I have a hard enough time coming up with a good post once a week. But some of you do a COUPLE A WEEK! Man, you have talent ;) 

I tag Aidyl :) You are one awesome girl, with some great posts - and beautiful writing :) You have a message for this word - Share it!

To The Committed Community Members
All you people that comment, email, and just basically make sure to tell me that you are reading my stuff, and that it is *worth* reading... thank you so much for your encouragement. 

I really want to thank Esther Allison for being such an awesome proofreader... she doesn't have a blog, so I can't tag her... but guys, you can comment here and say, "Esther, you are awesome!"

To The Beautiful Blog Designs
The first blog I ever followed was Bethany and Becca's blog, Clever Bunnies.

Isn't there title just gorgeous???

And their blog is just as great. Love the vintage, beautiful look. And their blog post titles are to be envied ;) They don't post as much any more (all great people have crazy lives ;b), but all their old posts are still so worth looking at!

To The Remarkable Reviewers And Book Bloggers
I don't follow many book blogs, even though I love books. How ironic? Lol. But there is one... Sara's blog is always awesome... I think she must know about and read all the latest stuff. If I want to know about a book, her blog is usually a great place to visit.

And I love her honest reviews. I might not always want to read the books, but I love reading about the books from her blog. 

Thanks for the good work, Sara!

To The Deep And Thoughtful Bloggers
Another great writing-girl... Sarah's blog is full of all of her books (which are great reads, by the way), but what I really like about her blog, is the fun and inspirational posts she writes about anything in life.

Check out The Destiny Of One - you won't regret it :)

To The Ones Who Are Just Plain Enjoyable
I was so excited when my friend got her blog last year! It's so fun of all sorts of miscellaneous posts! And her blog design is gorgeous!

And she posts about LOTR!

Awesome, right? 

Oh, and her blog is called The Flowering Vales . How cute!!!

To The Ones With A Great Sense of Humor
A good laugh, especially when backed up by a distorted view of logic is always good, right?

I always enjoy Jake's posts - one of my favorites of his blogs is Teenage Writer. He has a nice mixture of posts... some with deep thoughts, news of great literature, and always quite a bit of humor.

To The Inspirational Ones
To the one that I would like to blog like: Libs' blog, If You Give a Girl a Pen.

When I first discovered her blog, I loved it so much, I stayed up late until I had read every post of hers :) 

Her writing style is awesome... she has a great style for her short stories. Her posts are each unique and worth reading in and of themselves, her blog is gorgeous, and I love how her personality just seems to radiate from all over her blog: catching, friendly, happy. 

She doesn't post as much any more, either... but her blog is just so great! ;)

And, to anyone of you all out there that didn't get a tag!!! You are so awesome. I'm not just saying this to say this... honestly, you are are great! And God loves you sooo much! So, smile! Show the joy of a blessed person :)


  1. Thanks so much for the encouragement, Keturah! And for being understanding with our lack of posting :)

  2. Aw, you're welcome! And though I don't follow any of these people--yet, lol--they all sound so interesting and some of those blog titles though (Clever Bunnies??? I must check it out). I'll definitely give these a look when I get a chance. :)

    Thanks for doing the tag!


    1. :) I think you would most definitely enjoy some of these blogs ;)

  3. I am so touched to be part of this list. I also replied to your comment on my blog.

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish. I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am. But my perception  has changed with experience. It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own. But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish. I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural. Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream. " Mom ," I said. "He's drinking soda!"  Left to right, back row: Jonny, Jonathan (Dad). Front row: Jacob, Keturah, Rebekah (Mom), Jonah (on Mom's

Peace During Patience

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6 My family and I were sitting around the breakfast table several months ago. Mom had just read this verse. One of the kids laughed incredulously, “What is it saying? Be careful for nothing – live recklessly?” “No,” I answered quickly. My tone was very matter-of-fact, blunt, as if I were all-knowing. “It means do not worry.” The kids all nodded among themselves and life continued on for them. But for me life paused at my words. I had heard this verse soooooooo many times. I had always known what it meant. But now? Now it really meant something . “Do not worry.” This path I've chosen. I can not see it. I can not feel it. I do not know where I am. I have chosen to follow God, and no other. But why did He hide the light from my eyes? I must take a step forward. But I do not want to. How long w

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello. My name is Greg.  I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes. "If only..." But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me. It is cold. My clothes are thin. My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance.  I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon.  They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know. It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me. As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted. Convicted, but not  guilty. Years.  68 years for standing against injustice. How many years have I sat in here? I have forgot. All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials). I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release.  {If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing} I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day. Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very p
