What Inspires Me? (September Edition)


I was inspired to post a plethora of my favorite posts from the past month when I started reading HopefulLeigh and RachelHeldEvans.  I have to say my favorite time of the week/month is when I get to read what inspires others, because it inspires me too! So, each month, I will post meaningful, random, sports-related, or just whatever catches my eye links that inspire me as a writer, sports fan, Christ follower, etc…

Note: I am just discovering so many new blogs, so if I didn’t find it myself, I gave credit to who found it first!
