Hi everyone! Thank you so much for visiting this week’s Spotlight Saturday.
This series is a way for me to spread the word about the wonderful bloggers out there with short, fun interviews that I do with them so that you can get to know them and their blogs a little better. Even if you’re already following them, it could still be nice to read! 🙂 You can get more of a feel for who they are and what their blogs are all about.
So, without further ado, we’ll just get right into the interview!
My words are in italics, and hers are in bold.
Spotlight Saturday #2
Hey guys! Thanks for coming by this week’s spotlight. Today, I am so happy to introduce all of you to my sweet friend, who blogs over at The Word. Please welcome Margaret!
Hello everyone, I pray you’re doing well and full of God’s joyous love and blessings 🙂 I’m humbled, and have mercy on me because I’ve never been interviewed before 🙂
How fun that I’m your first interviewer! Well, I aim for my questions to be easy to answer, so you have nothing to worry about. To get this started, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a child of God, married to a wonderful man, and mother of a son who is truly a gift from God. I used to work ALL the time but I’m blessed to be able to stay home now. So, my days are occupied with taking care of my family, my home, and the yard. 🙂
That’s wonderful, Margaret! Family is truly a blessing. My next question is, why did you start your blog The Word?
Well Maggie, I would send out Bible verses to family and friends. Then whenever someone would say, “I loved the verses you sent me,” anyone listening would say, “I want Bible verses, too.” The list grew. One morning while I was reading my Bible, and typing up the verses I was sending that day, I said, “Lord, there has to be an easier way.” Start a blog came into my head. Yeah right, I can barely text, lol, start a blog, right. I continued reading my Bible but, start a blog, start a blog kept coming into my mind. I googled how to start a blog, and “How to start a Blog in less than 30 minutes” type of pages came up. Ok God, I’m listening 🙂 30 minutes later the blog was up and running. I have been overwhelmed by all the people who love God, and His Word.
That’s beautiful, Margaret! I had something similar happen with my blog; I wasn’t wanting to be on WordPress because I couldn’t keep up with blogs in the past, but then my mom came up with the name Dreaming of Guatemala as a potential blog name for me, and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I made my blog that day and I’ve loved posting on it ever since. 🙂 So, what is your favorite post that you’ve written so far? What was it about?
That’s a tough one, Maggie, because honestly I love them all. They are God’s Words! Him talking to me, to all of us. What’s not to love. 🙂 They are uplifting, loving, comforting, inspiring, promising, I could go on. Sometimes they step on my toes, and point me in the right directions I should go, and help direct me away from the world’s temptations. Which I need daily. I’d be a mess without His daily presence.
Yes, I love all of your posts! Getting to see Bible verses in my Reader every day is a blessing. Ok, my next question is: what are the things you love most about being on WordPress?
That’s a great question Maggie, I truly love that eveyone I have had the pleasure to converse with has been so welcoming, and kind. It really seems to be like a family.
It has been that way for me, too! Everyone has definitely been so sweet and welcoming to me. Alright, my last question is: why would you love for my readers to come by your blog today?
That’s an easy one Maggie 🙂 I’d love for people to visit The Word today and enjoy the beautiful Words God laid out for us all. His Word is always a great addition to any day.
Amen to that! ❤ Thank you so much for letting me interview you today, Margaret. 🙂 I enjoyed it, and I know that my readers will, too.
It was my pleasure, Maggie. Thank you. I am truly humbled that you found me worthy of an interview 🙂
Thank you all so much for reading! It would make both of us very happy if you could visit her blog for yourself. She blogs about Bible verses daily, is very kind and welcoming, and would love to talk to you about God’s Word!
Have an awesome Saturday, everyone!!
