Barnabas Award

Thank you to Matt at for nominating YouCanTrustHim for the Barnabas Award. Matt’s blog has something for just about everyone: lessons in ESL, his experiences living with celiac disease (including some good food articles), fictional short stories, and more.

So, here we go…

You have been chosen for this recognition because of the encouragement and inspiration you bring to your readers.

The way this works: Thank the person who nominated you, and share their blog. Think of five bloggers that encourage and inspire you and nominate them. List five things about yourself. Lastly, ask your nominees five questions.

Five things about me (Kim)

  1. Since yesterday (July 31) I have been married to my husband Manfred for thirty years. We have four grown children.
  2. I appreciate good writing. I enjoy seeing words put together in unexpected ways.
  3. I was born again unto life eternal at the age of twenty eight in San Diego, CA.
  4. I get a thrill from hearty congregational singing of the old hymns of the faith.
  5. Because I like butter, I can bake pretty good bread.

Matt’s Five Questions for Me

1- What is a scripture verse that has blessed you recently?
John 4:23

2- What is your favorite worship song?
At the moment – “Our Great Savior”

3- What is your favorite meal after church?
Spaghetti because it is fast. Roast beef when I can get it.

4- What country or countries would you like to visit and why?
Germany and Russia. Manfred is from Germany as are most of my ancestors. Manfred’s ancestors are from Russia and Poland. I would like, on a Sunday morning, to sing with the Russians.

5- What is your favorite snack?
dark chocolate or popcorn or both
