  1. Congratulations on the award, and what a wonderful blog post! I enjoyed learning more about you. Your photos are fabulous!

    I am putting Ann Voskamp’s Gifts book into my Amazon shopping cart right now!

    1. Hello, Miss Debbie, I’m glad you enjoyed the photos and thank you for the congratulations. 🙂 I think you’ll fall in love with Ann Voskamp’s writing — deep, elegant, and powerful. I could have read it faster, but I chose to read The Broken Way over several months. A short section at a time was enough so I could let it sink in.

  2. Pearl!!! This is absolutely wonderful! Congratulations! I’m so glad to get to know you even better. And we have the stress of cooking in common. With Christmas tomorrow, one of my favorite cooking friends is showing up today: the crockpot! Most meals turn out perfect every time she shows up.
    Thanks for sharing your good news.
    Super proud of you, and I wholeheartedly agree that you deserve this award.

    1. Oh Michelle, thank you. I think it’s more like happy chain mail than anything, but it’s fun! I can’t imagine you getting stressed over cooking! You’re so upbeat and positive. It’s great to know I’m not the only one! How did your Christmas crockpot recipe turn out? My husband made meatballs from scratch, gluten-free pasta with homemade marinara, and steamed veggies. Oh.My.Taste.Buds. It was so amazing – he deserves an award! Happy early New Year to you and your beautiful family! Love seeing pictures of your grandson on Instagram. 🙂

  3. Dear Pearl,
    Congratulations on your nomination! I can certainly see why you were selected!
    I thoroughly enjoy reading whatever you write and hearing your comments in our meetings.
    I share with you the stress in having people over and cooking for them even though I was a cook before retirement. I had lots of help in the kitchen and didn’t have to do dishes. I rarely have people over because I turn into a Martha when I want to be Mary. I too just want to relax and enjoy their company. Pray for me about this please.
    Thank you for your refreshing transparency. I truly believe women will identify and feel more comfortable with someone willing to share their struggles. Merry Christmas!
    Love ya, Kathy

    1. Dearest Kathy, I would never have guessed a cook would get stressed having people over! Somehow, that’s very comforting – even though I’ll certainly pray for both of us! Your comments here on the blog and your leadership in BSF continue to be a source of great encouragement to me. Privileged to serve together! Merry belated Christmas and Happy early New Year! 🙂
