Awesome Bloggers: Barb Schoenberger

Barb is another blogger that used to participate in the same link-up as me. She doesn’t blog much. In fact, the last post on her blog, Suffering with Joy, is dated September 8. However, when she does write, it is profound, though-provoking and it stirs the soul in a deep way.

I love how Barb describes the purpose of her blog is “to help others to find solace, joy, and purpose in suffering, no matter how great the difficulties facing them.” We all go through difficulties and it is so easy to want to give up, to despair, or to let ourselves get bitter or angry. Barb, who is not devoid of suffering herself, shows us that suffering can be faced with courage and grace.

If you want to be inspired or going through a difficult time, Barb’s blog is the perfect place for comfort and words of encouragement.

Awesome Bloggers: Dawn Shuler

I’ve written about Dawn before but I want to mention her gain because not only does she have great products, she has a great blog.

I knew Dawn virtually when I was a part of Assistu and then followed her to Writing From Your Soul. I love Dawn’s perceptive and calming writing style and I love how she approaches the writing process. I purchased her Writing From the Soul Intensive Toolkit and it has helped me tremendously. In fact, when I went back to college to finish my degree, I applied what I learned from the toolkit every time I wrote a paper for one of my classes. It made the writing process easier and I am convinced that it got me better grades. I graduated Summa Cum Laude so if it didn’t help, it certainly didn’t hurt! 🙂

As the website indicates, Dawn is all about helping people write from the soul so they can strongly convey their message in a way that connects with their audience. She also helps people to be more consistent with their message and marketing which is so very important in building a successful business.
