The Sunshine Bloggers Award 

I was nominated for The Sunshine Bloggers Award! How crazy exciting is that? Definitely wasn’t expecting this but I am humbled. God definitely shows up when we expect it. He is so faithful. I started this blog by faith and instruction. I seek Him for each and every post – praying its none of me but all of Him.

Thank you darling woman of God, Aqua (marredinthemastershand) for nominating me. Bless  you!

Now that I have accepted this award,I have a few questions to answer.


Aqua’s 11 questions:

1. What Inspired you to start blogging in the first place?

I first started blogging in 2015 about beauty products and reviews. Shortly after I lost the motivation to write. Thought blogging just wasn’t my thing. One night in 2017 the Holy Spirit placed “The Graced Citizen” on my heart and told me to share some of my journal entries and also to share the gospel. The rest has been history.

2. What is something that most people would be surprised to know about you?

I hate the tv volume/ radio volume to be on an odd number. Like I just sense it!!

3. What was your childhood dream?

To become a doctor

4. When did God become real for you?

November 2016. Always been a church goer but in 2016 I had my first real encounter with the Holy Spirit

5. Christmas or Easter? and why?

Christmas. The entire family gets together. We go to church, celebrate Jesus and have a feast #yum

6. Favorite bible verse?

ahhh so many! Do I really have to choose? Psalm 46:10 for this current season.

“Be still, and know that I am God!
    I will be honored by every nation.
    I will be honored throughout the world.”

7. Who inspires you to be a better person

My sister

8. If you could travel any place in the world. Where would you go?


9. Which miracle in the bible would you have loved to see first hand?

Tough one, but probably Jesus walking on water or raising Lazarus from the dead or feeding the 5000

10. Introvert or extrovert

INTROVERT – all day, everyday

11. Morning or night?

Morning! Wake up at that lovely 5:30am and get my day started! Night = bedtime
