This post took quite a bit longer than five minutes, because of interruptions and the links I'm including. I'm giving myself some grace, and I'll get back to the five-minute limit tomorrow! Here we go:
Somehow I didn't meet Kristin, who participates in Five Minute Friday, until now. At the incredible k she's writing a series for her Encourage Daily Campaign. She's sometimes funny, sometimes serious, but always encouraging.
Anita at Blessed but Stressed is writing a series called 31 Days of Encouragement for Caregivers. Even though I'm not a caregiver, I've been appreciating her posts. Yesterday she posted about hope, and it's been one of my favorites so far.
Just recently I've discovered Jen at Growing in Faith. She's writing 31 Days of Moments in Africa. She's a real storyteller, and I think you'll like her, too. Don't miss her post about the spider.
And then there's Abby, whose series is Snapshots: Soul of a Nation -- Hungary. She shares stories and photos that go far beyond what you would find on a tourism website--stories about real people, real trials, real joy.
Finally, I can't forget about Kate Motaung, who is hosting 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes. She's writing 31 Days of Life in South Africa. So far she's shared about her arrival in South Africa, the theft of her car, her wedding, and more.
I hope you'll check out some of these bloggers, if only just to say Hi!
