A couple of "blog" jems for you

I think that everyone like to hear the words, "You are a Jem of a person!".
So after spending a little time treasure hunting this week, I came across two blog jems that shone. So I'm taking a moment to share them with you and give these blogs the,"Blog Jem Award!"

The first is called "The Girl's Guide to Homelessness". This blog chronicles the experience of the homelessness 23-year-old Brianna Karp. Her life experience and her blog are in the works of being published in her own biography and may be made into a film soon. Talk about taking hard times and making a future out of them!

The second blog I stumbled across is the blog of Margot Starbuck (no, she is not in the coffee business.) On first glance on her blog, she quotes Micah 6:8 " Do justice, love mercy, walk humbly.", which happens to be a verse I consider to be a life rule...and continue and strive to live by. Margot is a writer, a speaker, an artist, a mom, has a great amount of experience in youth and church ministry and has a heart for missions through the efforts of Compassion International.

It's my pleasure to award these two ladies the "Blog Jem Award", not only for their blogs, but for their courage and creativity in living life to the full!
Cheers to you both and keep on shining.

I read Margot's first book this last weekend and it's fantastic - the girl in the orange dress. It's a must read!
