I'd like you to meet Bri from Faithful Footprints. I was lucky enough to make Bri's acquaintance last month when we were paired as Cara Box partners (details here). It didn't take me long to realize Bri has a truly kind and genuine soul and her blog is a true reflection of her perseverance, faith and integrity.
Here's a little taste of what Bri's all about:
How long have you been blogging and why did you get into it?
Officially, I’ve been a blogger since 2009. It started as just an outlet for me and pretty much my family to stay connected. I’ve never thought of myself as a writer, but some days, I find that I really do have a way with words. More recently, I’ve become a more in-depth blogger, participating in the wonderful blogging community! I absolutely love it and am so glad that I took the time to figure it all out. I’m still a small-time blogger, but I’m okay with that J. I want faithful readers instead of just ‘followers’, and what I write comes from the heart. There’s no schedule that I stick to – it just is whatever is on my heart that day.
What are the last three songs you listened to?
Hey Pretty Girl – Kip Moore; Poison and Wine – The Civil Wars; Springsteen – Eric Church
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go? Fiji! My husband and I really wanted to go for our honeymoon, but opted on something much more budget friendly at the time. We will definitely go one day… My husband LOVES the water (and love is an understatement…), and he’s just fallen in love with the thought of traveling there one day for a vacation.
Salty or Sweet?
Sweet! But sometimes, both ;)
What’s your favorite quote?
‘Do It Anyway’ by Mother Teresa:
People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies.
If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight.
If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough.
Give them your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God.
It never was between you and them anyway.
Describe one of your guilty pleasures.
My latest guilty pleasure is a TV show: Mistresses on ABC. Oh my goodness – it’s good! It’s not entirely what people portray it to be, and I’m not condoning any behavior that happens, but it’s definitely been my guilty pleasure since it premiered!
Tell me about one blessing in your life.
My family. I would seriously not be where I am today without them. Emotional, spiritual, physical, financial – they are my support system! We are a very close family and I dream that the family my husband and I will one day have will be the same. No matter the situation, I know I can always count on them and not be embarrassed, ashamed, or turned away. They are truly the greatest blessing of all.
I'm sure you can tell just from this short Q&A what an incredible women Bri is! Show her some love and go visit her blog, Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Be sure to tell her I sent you, since we all enjoy the love!
Are there any bloggers you're loving? Are you a blogger interested in a button swap and Q&A? I'd love to her from you! Just email me here.
As always, be blessed,
