Doing You WELL Wednesday

Guess who's been nominated for a Liebster?

I was nominated by Alison at Embrace the Struggle. Getting this news was surely a pleasant surprise for me.  Thanks, Alison!

The Liebster Award is given to fellow bloggers with less than 200 followers who are forthcoming in the blogosphere.

So, this is how it works.


1. You must link back to the person that nominated you.
2. You must answer the 11 questions given to you by your nominator.
3. You must pick 11 bloggers, each with under 200 subscribers, to be nominated for the award.
4. You must come up with 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. You must go to their blogs and notify your nominees.
I was asked by Alison to answer the following questions.

  1. What’s your guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure is to enjoy a cup of Starbuck's coffee with a hot, glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut.
  2. You’re forced to choose between buying shoes and buying makeup. Which one wins? Buying makeup definitely wins. I enjoy going into stores like Sephora and Ulta just to try out the testers that are on display!
  3. Which skill, or set of skill, do you still want to master? I've always wanted to learn to sew. In my lifetime, I've probably spent a small fortune at the alteration shop.
  4. Which movie recently made you weep? It was Fireproof. Although not a very recent movie (2008), I did weep. I wept because of the restoration that occurred at the end of the movie. The restoration was evidence of God's miracle working power when our lives are as broken as the marriage in the movie.
  5. What tidbit about you would surprise most of your blog readers? In 2009, I survived a car wreck when the vehicle that I was riding in flipped over several times, landed up , facing the opposite direction. I walked out of the vehicle with a broken leg and had to have knee surgery. I am a living testimony of God's goodness!
  6. If I took away books and music from you, which would cause you to have withdrawal symptoms? This is a tough one! I like books and music. I guess I would have more withdrawals without books.
  7. What is a deal-breaker for you in friendships? DISHONESTY, friends who are not loyal, friends that take and never give. When I discover that someone that I'm close to really does not have my back the way I think they should - I rethink their friendship status!
  8. Planes, trains, and automobiles. Which is your preferred mode of transportation?  Why?   Planes -Traveling by air is definitely a faster form of transportation, especially for long distances.
  9. Who was your favorite musician when you were a teenager? I guess that would probably be Prince - back in the day.
  10. Which subject did you hate the most in school? History
And the nominees are.... (drumroll)
I think all of you are fabulous.  You write in a way that definitely encourages me to return to your blog - again and again!!!

Linking up with Michell at Doing You WELL Wednesday!


  1. Thanks for the award. I love these as a way to get to know bloggers better. I'd have to agree with you on going through withdrawal without books and planes are the way to go, I can't sit still in a car or train for that long!

    1. You're welcome, Tanya. I always enjoy visiting your blog.

  2. Thank you for the nod. I really appreciate your thinking of me. Someone else recently nominated me for this award and I answered their questions and have it on my blog. Now, with that said, I have to admit to thoroughly reveling in your answers, especially because they let me know that you and I have several things in common. (Mmmm, can you say Krispy Kreme?!) The best thing about this award is the introduction to other blogs of note, including yours. I am going to spend some time right here reading.

    1. Yes ma'am to the Krispy Kreme. I have to be careful not to overindulge, which can be difficult!

  3. So cool to read your responses, Trinity! So you were a Prince fan back in the day! Yes, Purple Rain truly reigned back then. And you're a book lover like me! God be praised that you came out of that car wreck and lived to tell the tale. God is exceedingly good!

    1. Yep! I think I liked to watch him perform more than I liked the music. Purple Rain did reign!

      SURVIVING a car wreck is a blessing. Through it all, I learned so much about friendship, loyalty, and perseverance. God is so good!

  4. Loving the answers, Trinity! Isn't it great how we learn so much about each other through these memes?

    1. Yes, Alison. It gives us the opportunity to create a circle of friends that we may/may not personally meet.

  5. Hi Trinity,

    Thank you for nominating me for this award. I accept it and consider it an honor.

    Surviving a car wreck in indeed a testimony.

    Blessings to you and thanks again!!


    1. You're welcome, Evelyn. I appreciate all of your information that you research and share on your blog. The information that you share takes so much guesswork out of truly becoming a "healthier you".

  6. Trinity, thank you so much for the nomination and I appreciate it so much. I am going to go over your questions and put together a list of bloggers. I am so grateful for this honor. I will do you proud. Have a blessed day!

  10. Hey Trinity!! CONGRATS my friend, you deserve it! I'm thankful as well that God spared your life!! Praise Him!! Yep, I'd have to agree with you on the Prince one...the 80's RULED!!! LOL! Congrats again and thanks for linking up!! Have a blessed weekend!!
