The book I’m writing, Girls with Gusto, is about living our spiritual lives with gusto—spirit, verve, energy. It encourages the reader to develop an intimate relationship with God as she travels along her spiritual journey.

But, as you can probably attest, this can be extremely difficult, especially in today’s society where busyness is a mark of success.

A Girl with Gusto Award Badge

That’s why I’ve created the Girl with Gusto award, to encourage women to focus on God and to live with gusto. Nominees will receive a pretty badge for their Facebook page like the one shown here. This is a lovely way of publicly honoring these godly women. The Nominees will then be entered into a drawing for a prize, such as a book or journal, to be announced at a later date.

Encouraging others in their spiritual walk is an important part of living with gusto. That’s why those who take the time to nominate someone will also be entered into the drawing.

Nomination Details

When you click the link above to nominate someone, you’ll be redirected to a secure entry form. Since the award badges are placed on Facebook profile pages, the Nominee’s Facebook address is a required field. If the Nominee’s security settings do not allow me to post the award on their profile, I will send it via message.

Nominees and those who nominate them will be entered into a drawing for a prize to be determined at a later date. If you are nominating someone, please complete the form in its entirety so I can contact you or the Nominee in the event you win the prize.

All Nominees and those who nominate them are considered part of the Big Sisterhood and will receive the Big Sister Knows monthly newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time (but you won’t want to!). Once you complete the entry form, you will receive an email from Big Sister Knows asking you to “confirm subscription” to complete the registration process. If you do not confirm subscription, I will not receive the information you entered in the form, and you and the Nominee will not be entered into the drawing.

You may nominate as many people as you would like, but each person will only be counted once for the drawing.

As always, your contact information will be kept confidential. See the Disclaimer section for more details.

Whether you’re the one being nominated, or you’re nominating someone else…
