Accepting the Liebster Award



liebster-awardHello!

My name is Amy Tyrrell and I started this blog almost a year ago, but as so many of us experience, life got busy and my blog took a backseat to all the life transitioning of having our 4th child! I have started blogging again, about a month ago, with the desire to reach out to other moms and share my story and my fitness journey in hopes to encourage and inspire other moms with their “mom life journey”.  I am thrilled that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by a lovely woman who believes in my blog!!

I want to send a huge thank you to Brittany, author of The Unqualified Christian…

Please show her blog some love: theunqualifiedchristian.wordpress.com

The Liebster Award is designed for new and upcoming bloggers to build their audience and to welcome them into the community.

So a little about my blog, which I have including in some of my answers below…I am a stay at home mom of 4 kids, we homeschool, we go on LOTS of family adventure, we love Jesus, we love each other and we love to show others support and love through our journey!

I have always wanted to get a blog up and running but I never really put the effort into it until my last pregnancy. I began to think about how I could share my story with other moms. Through my trials, successes, and revelations, I hope to encourage and inspire other moms with their own journeys-to share my own story so they know they’re not alone, that they are so much stronger than they believe! In the first week or so of blogging and sharing, I was already getting feedback from women who were encouraged and felt supported! I was floored! All the research I’d done to really get myself going, to know how to blog “properly” seemed to fall into place quite quickly and I felt for the first time in a long time that I was actually doing something to help others, writing with the compassion in my heart to serve and build up others!

When Brittany nominated me she gave me these questions to answer along with the opportunity to nominate 10 bloggers of my own choosing for the Liebster Award. Here are her questions, along with my answers…

1) What drove you to start your blog?

-I’ve always been the type of person to go out of my way to find a solution to a problem if someone comes to me with something. I have a passion for helping people, and now that I’m a mom, I can definitely relate and believe that I can possibly help people with my experience and make them feel like they’re not alone, or at the very least help them through it by listening and loving them. My hope for my blog is to encapsulate hope and love to other moms who are struggling with mom life, or just wading through the chaos-or fighting their way through a fitness journey. My faith in God helps me stay grounded and I know he guides me through so much! 

2) Do you read often? If so, what is your favorite book?

-Finding time to read is difficult, but I enjoy reading personal character building type books rather than novels-but I love reading the Bible and blogs 🙂  

3) What is your favorite quote?

“You have been assigned this mountain to show others that it can be moved”

4) If you could have dinner with anyone-dead or alive- who would you choose?

-Oh man, there are several that I think would be fascinating to talk to, but probably Paul from the Bible or Jesus 🙂 

5) What is your favorite post you have written? (Include a link!!)

6) If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?

-Europe! 

7) Who inspires you most?

-My husband and my kids

8) What is your best advise for new bloggers?

-Find your niche, research other blogs to find out how people maneuver through their niches, make it your own and go for it! Dream big, be real. 

9) Decribe yourself in three words.

-Compassionate

-Patient

-Strong

10) What is your favorite Bible verse?

-Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God…”

  1. Love it! I absolutely believe in your writing and your should too! Always remember that your writing matters, to someone it could be what gets them through their day. With God by your side, you can do anything you set your mind to. Just keep the attitude you have now and anything will be possible! So glad the Lord put your blog in front of me💕

  2. I’m thrilled for you…it seems that so many great things are opening up for you in this season. I am watching you emerge. You’re becoming what the Lord showed me you would be when you were a little girl. There’s far, far more to that story, but I could not be more pleased.
    love, Mom 🙂
