B.O.W. Award for the Week of 8/4 - 8/10

1.  What is the title of your blog?
Finding Treasures in Jars of Clay

2.  What is your blog's address?

3.  Tell us about yourself.
My name is Dorinda.  My family and I live in Razorback country, the beautiful state of Arkansas, and yes, we are die hard Razorback fans.

With three children still at home, I would hve to say that one of my favorite hobbies is watching my kids participate in their many sports.  I also love to curl up with any Dekker book or some other book by awesome authors.

My greatest accomplishment is getting to spend my life with the love of my life and my four kids and two beautiful granddaughters.  God is so good to me!

4.  What do you blog about the most?
I think I blog mostly about my life experiences of learning to lean on my Savior.  Life with my family is fun, hilarious, and sometimes trying- but God is always faithful.  His Word is Truth and full of treasure!  I love finding treasure to put in this "jar of clay" and sharing it with others.

5.  Do you have any other blogs that you write or co-write?
Well, if you count being the number one fan of my husband's blog (, yes.  Other than that, no.

6.  When did you start blogging?
I started blogging last fall (Sept 2007).  My goal was to connect with the ladies of our church with an online Bible study.  That kind of flopped.  I had the most fun when I was blogging from my heart, you know, just life "stuff".  Then I decided to do just that, and from there it got in my blood.
7.  What or who prompted you to start blogging?
My oldest daughter started a blog about their family's China adoption journey. (  While traveling in China with them to bring our precious Mia home, I sent emails home about our experiences.  I guess, her blog, my love for telling stories, and wanting to connect with ladies in our church in an on-line setting, all added up to the idea of a blog. 

8.  How did you learn about Assembly of God Blogs?
Wow, that is a good question.  I think I first saw the link from my college buddy's blog -

9.  What has blessed you the most about Assembly of God Blogs?
I have enjoyed reading other ministry blogs.  It can almost be addictive.  But, the biggest blessing is meeting other A/G sisters- my bloggy friends.  I have re-connected with friends from my college days and have made some new treasures of friends.

Dorinda is an amazing woman of God. Her blog is truly anointed. She shares stories and journals that inspire me to want to seek God with all my heart. It is obvious that both she and her husband are incredible leader of their church to have inspired both those on their ministry team and within their church body to seek God with all their hearts. She has become a prayer warrior for my family and for many others in her life. I have grown to consider her a bloggy soul sister and hope to meet her in person one day.

Thank you Christelle for your nomination!
