a question or two for you…

I know why I blog.  I blog for the same reason that I write anything… I write because I cannot not write.  I write because I think through things using words… sometimes LOTS of words.  I write because it fulfills a deep need within.

I also know why I read.  I read for many of the same reasons.  I read because I cannot not read.  I read because I have an insatiable desire to learn.  I read because I love words… the more words the better.  I read because it, too, fulfills a deep need within.

I wonder, though… why do you read what I write?  I would love to know why you come back to read my blog.  What intrigues you?  What speaks to you?  For those of you who choose to follow me… why did you chose my blog over another?

There is no hidden agenda here.  I’m just curious…

I know why I blog… would you consider leaving me a comment as to why you read what I write?

  1. I love to read your blog because you are an excellent writer and because you are my daughter. I love you!!!!

    1. you’re not biased, are you?! ; )

  2. Moi????????

  3. I read because you write what I think…because I’m fascinated with the fact that the one who seems to have it all together struggles like the rest of us…because you have such a passion for God, for your family…and maybe a little because I’m proud that I knew you back before you became the famous author that God is molding you to be!

    1. Thank you my long time friend! I read that and laughed out loud because it made me think of a senior picture that started out, “Dear Helen…”

    I read your blog because you not only are you an excellent writer (something that I am always looking for in blogs) but also because you are so real and vulnerable. You put into words the struggles, questions, and musings that I too face on a daily basis as a woman, wife, and mother. Thank you for putting into words the journey that God is taking you on. You are such an encouragement and inspiration to me. Thank you!

    1. Bethany, thank you! Your words encourage me! 😉

    I read your blog because it is a way to keep in touch. I read your blog because we have a lot in common and I really “get” where you are coming from. I read your blog because you take the time to put into words often what I am thinking. I appreciate how you share your heart!

    1. Thanks Michelle! I’m glad we have the internet to keep in touch when life is so busy we only see each other at Culvers. 😉

  6. I don’t read anyone’s blogs on a regular basis. I read them when God whispers to me to click. Most often that whisper is to open yours. I don’t exactly know why, but I am always blessed by obedience. Reading your blogs makes me wish I were there and we could stay up all night talking. I think it would be awesome! 😉

    1. I would love that, Marti! Thanks for the encouragement! 😉

I'd love to know what you think...
