blog-tember 24: 5 bloggers I love to follow

Linking up with Blog-tember today to share five of my favorite bloggers. Be sure to visit these lovely ladies in their little corners of the internet . . . you'll be glad you did!

1. Amy from Taking Steps Home
This girl is pretty rad. Whether she's blogging about her recent Ireland & Scotland trip (her photography is amazing), posting about her workout routines and fitness journey that is really inspirational,  listing goals she's aspiring for each month, or sharing heart-moments about struggles & pain, she is raw and honest in her writing. She has wisdom beyond her years, plus determination and spunk. I love following Taking Steps Home!

2. Katie from Hope Engaged 
Katie is such a beautiful soul and I love catching up with her adventures on her blog. I first started following her blog while she was in Nepal serving with her husband in a home protecting girls from slavery. Her heart's cry for those who do not have a voice really caught my attention. She has since been back in the States and pursuing a degree in counseling in which I am confident that she will be a blessing to so many people by bringing hope and truth in many lives. Katie also posts about her many travel adventures and her photography is magazine-worthy! So colorful and vibrant. Be sure to check our her travel page!  I had the sweet blessing of meeting her for lunch February 2014 and it was such a gift! Her faith in God is evident in her honest posts and she is just such a humble, compassionate, others-focused,  beautiful soul! 

3. Kiki from In Its Time 
Kiki has a heart for bringing together Christian women in the blogging world into a community to encourage one another. She does this beautifully through The Circle, a monthly link-up that I have enjoyed so much over the past few years. I love her bits and pieces posts that have links she's loving at the moment, her nature photography that picks up on the small beautiful of life through exquisite  detailed shots, and her wise words of what she is learning in life.

4. Natalie from Heart Stirrings
This girl can write. I get super excited every time I see she's posted anything because I admire her intellectual and creative writing. She writes about theology in an easy-to-understand way that is also profound and soul-searching. She is a natural teacher and her writing is both informative and engaging. I have learned a lot and been very encouraged by her posts in the past. She also is an avid reader and I love reading her book reviews and adding whatever she's reading to my GoodReads to-read list because she has great taste in books :) I've enjoyed a few Skype chats with her and consider her a dear blog buddy!
Some of my favorite posts by Natalie:

Victoria has a super fun lifestyle blog filled with gorgeous photos of traveling adventures , her beautiful home remodel, and everyday happenings. She shares her faith in a beautiful way through her posts, which is always so great to read. She has amazing style to boot . . . I love the way she pairs her outfits in a way that reminds me of Audrey Hepburn, and her home design style is also top notch!
