Caryl McAdoo--2014 OWG "The Angel's Heart" Award Recipient

Overcoming With God's 2014 Angels' Heart Award Recipient - Caryl McAdoo
Last year we began our first ever "The Angel's Heart" award, which was won by Julie Lessman. She received a custom made plaque from Nashville artist, Beverly Mayes. We began with our first set of rules for recipients, which we are refining as we go, but the main thing the winner has to have done is to have ministered to our readers and to the bloggers. That earns them an initial "You Take the Cake" award for responding to our readers and to bloggers. This past year has been a very difficult one for the OWG bloggers and we take our ministry to our readers very seriously--but we also need to be ministered to by others. The OWG staff voted and our final decision was that Caryl McAdoo had not only come by regularly to encourage our readers but also us. And she's a stellar writer.
Caryl will receive our custom-made 2014 plaque from Beverly Mayes which will also bear the inscription of "The Angel's Heart Award, 2014 from Overcoming With God blog". 

CONGRATS to CARYL!!!


BIO:

Caryl McAdoo and her husband Ron—high school sweethearts—live with four grandsons in the woods south of Clarksville, the county seat of Red River County in Northeast Texas. She enjoys four-wheeling over the 916-acre McAdoo Ranch, horseback riding, and singing the new songs God gives her. For every blessing in her life, including ten children (counting in-loves) and fourteen grandsugars, Caryl credits her relationship with the Lord, and her heart’s desire is to glorify Him.


CFP: Caryl has a SLEW of books out in 2014, including my personal favorite for 2014, Vow Unbroken.  She has two sequels to the novel now available as well as other books.

    1. And hugs to you, Noela!! I remember the first time I saw your name how pretty I thought it is - it'll probably show up in a book one day! You, Carrie, Diana, and Teresa have all become cherished friends this past year. Others are using 'deserved' but I don't feel so deserving. It is our wonderful Father who has bonded our hearts and ministered to us all at OWG! I'm sure everyone would agree :)

    1. Thank you, Cindi! I'm not so sure about the deserving part, but then these ladies' opinions I hold in high regard, so what's a lady to do but say thank you and turn the glory back to God as Jesus taught us to do? Hugs!

    1. Thank you, Maxie! What kind words. If there be any 'good' in me, it is only the Spirit of God who teaches me, gives me great peace, and shows me the way to please God. I'm not always successful, but little by little every day :) Hugs and blessings back! {{{{{{Maxie}}}}}}

    1. What kind words, Natalie. I sure do appreciate them. It seems the older I get, the more I love Him, which results in quicker obedience and greater joy. It's all about pleasing God, and these words of affirmation - - - this Angel's Heart award - - - encourage me that He sees my efforts to serve His Kingdom! Blessings!
