First, let me just say that if you see your blog listed here, consider yourself tagged. I can't go to all 25 blogs individually and comment about these awards, and I think most of these go to my regular readers anyway. :) Second, blogger has been messing with my linking lately, so if you notice broken or wrong links, please do let me know so I can correct them.

Eva, over at Handmade Beginnings recently awarded me with the Honest Scrap award. I am supposed to tell my readers 10 things about myself and then pass the award on to 10 more bloggers who I enjoy keeping up with. Thank you, Eva!

Here goes:

1. Most important thing about me: I am a Christ-follower, who believes that the Bible is the true and accurate Word of God.

2. My dream is to go into full-time ministry in Asia.

3. In college, I pursued my elementary teaching credential. It was during that process (student teaching) that I realized that I wanted to homeschool my children.

4. I have a special place in my heart for those struggling with infertility. I spent the better part of the last two years as a gestational surrogate, and carried and gave birth to fraternal twins in Dec. 2008 for a couple dealing with infertility from my Bible study.

5. It may not seem like it from my blog, but I am terrible at organizing.

6. I like blogging. In fact, I have started at least 5 different blogs, but this one is the most active.

7. I am actually kind of terrified of large dogs. Unfortunately, I've passed this on to Miss O. :(

8. I can speak conversational Mandarin Chinese--pretty nifty, huh? :)

9. Kind of crazy--I've only attended public school for about 7 months of my life. I am the product of private, Christian education.

10. I used to want four kids, two close together, then a gap, and then two more close together. Now that I have my first two, 15 months apart, I don't think I can handle anymore! ;)

And, Sheena, over at Turning Ordinary into Extraordinary and Nicole over at Tired, Need Sleep both gave me the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you both! :) The rules for this award are that I am supposed to pass it on to 15 more blogs that I have newly discovered and am enjoying.

Coming up with 25 different blogs to pass these awards on to is quite a task, but I am up to the challenge, so here goes!

I'll pass the Honest Scrap Award on to:

I love blogging too! It's such a great outlet.

Derek's aunt was a missionary in China during the 80's...for ten years, I think. She loved it.

Thanks for the award! I probably won't get to posting it...but thank you!

We had friends that were missionaries in China for a few years. They came home with a little girl :)

You can find my honest award entry here http://catholicchristianhomeschooling.blogspot.com/2009/06/honest-scrap-award.html and here http://sahminil.webs.com/apps/blog/entries/show/1186709-honest-scrap. They are 2 different entries. You're tag would be the 4th time I've gotten the honest scrap award. So instead of writing more "honest things" I'll just direct you to my previous entries. Thanks for the tag! SAHMinIL @ Catholic Christian Homeschooling

Thanks for the award!
I am also kind of scared of dogs. They can be very unpredictable.

Susana said...

Thank you so much for the award! I am afraid of big dogs too:-)! I just posted this award last night from a different blog--I will go back and add your link/blog name to it as well so you get credit too:-). Just saw it this morning.

BTW, I love your ideas and your super cute blog too. I stop by often for inspiration and great reads!
