Sunshine Blogger Award for Jesus!

Sunshine Blogger Award

I was surprised and humbled to receive the Sunshine Blogger Award yesterday from Vickie at Vickie’s Book Nook and Meditation Corner!  Vickie loves Jesus with all of her heart!  Check out her site for wisdom and inspiration from the Lord!  Thank you Vickie!  All glory to God!

My whole purpose in life is to reflect the glory of Jesus and glorify His Name!  It is His light within me by the power of the Holy Spirit that shines through me!  Jesus is the Light of the World and it is His “Sonshine” that we all desperately need in our souls!  God bless you all!  This award goes to Jesus for His glory!  Jesus is Lord!

Here are the rules for the award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to him/her.
  • Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post

Here are the questions that Vickie asked:

Q: Who is your best friend and what do you have in common?

A: My best friend is my wife, but Jesus is our best friend always and forever!  We have so many things in common because we are unified through the power of the Holy Spirit!  I am so thankful for my wife’s friendship and love!

Q: What is your favorite place to go and why?

A: I love going up to the mountains to chill and fish.  The peace and serenity of the high country here in Colorado shines in God’s glory and it is magnificent!

Q: If you watch television, what is your favorite show?

A: I don’t watch a lot of TV because I don’t have the time, most of it is not worth it, and it is so worldly and disgusting I can’t stand it.  I pray for Hollywood.  I like the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel mostly.  I love the peaceful nature and I enjoy watching the brotherhood and joy of hunting and fishing.  Those are the only channels where the men regularly give glory to God, pray, quote the Bible, and speak the Name of Jesus boldly on their shows!  So cool!  We also like Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates.  I sent him an email and a tweet and I am waiting prayerfully to hear back from him!  I pray my book can help him in his search for truth!

Q: What is the book that you would recommend that everyone read?

A:  Without a doubt I recommend everyone in the whole world read the Bible!  It is literally God’s instruction manual for living life victoriously in His power and love!  Jesus died for all of us and He wants you to go to Heaven!  John 3:16, Romans 10:9, Acts 4:12!

Q: What is your favorite thing to do on a daily basis?

A: Talk to my Lord and Savior Jesus, read His Word, and share the Gospel!  Romans 1:16!

Q: Share an interesting fact about your life.

A: I lived in a haunted house possessed by a demon all through my high school years.  I got saved my Freshman year in college in October of 1996, went back to my parents house and cast the demon out in the power of the Holy Spirit over Christmas Break in December of 1996, had two angel encounters in 1998, and then on 4-28-2012 I stopped breathing due to anaphylactic shock, I was with Jesus on the other side for a short time, and the Lord saved me by a miracle of the Holy Spirit!  It’s all in my book: “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life” on Amazon!  Contact me if you would like a free copy!

Q: What is one word that describes you best? Explain.

A: Passionate!  I am passionate about Jesus Christ and helping people come to know Him.  Sometimes that can make me seem intense, but I am just pumped up in the Lord!

Q: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be and why?

A: Celiac Disease.  Because it is a chronic illness and part of the fall and I fight it every day.

Q: What do you consider to be the priority of your life?

A: Fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ that He gave us in Matthew 28:18-20!

Q: Tell us your favorite author and why.

A: The Apostle Paul!  Because he wrote the majority of the New Testament and he wrote it in the power of the Holy Spirit!

Q: What is one thing that you wish everyone knew about you?

A: I have a tender heart and I am an introvert by nature, but I am also a lion for the Lord with great boldness and strength from the Holy Spirit!  I want everyone to know Jesus!  He loves you more than you could ever imagine!

My Nominees!

There are so many awesome blogs and I have met so many great brothers and sisters here that it is very difficult to choose only 11…so I chose 23!  I love you all and you have been a great encouragement to me in my walk with Christ!  God bless you all!

  6. Ryan, congratulations! I so enjoyed reading your answers. I sense your passion and fire for Jesus. Knocked mine up a notch. I didn’t believe in God until I was 40, and Jesus came after that. But oh His power to transform. Thank you Jesus, and Hallelujah for His saving you. Twas not your time to be on the 24 hour praise team! So glad we connected. Have a blessed night. In Christ, Julie
