Questions from my nominee (to me):

  1. If you were stranded on an island what three things would you take and why?

I would take my leather bond Bible, the biggest journal I could find (because if we were stranded there would be no possibilities to buy another journal—and I would have to write VERY small), and my family.

  1. What was your most challenging moment in blogging?

Really, just getting started. So often (myself included) we think “it” has to be “perfect” before we can do or start our “it.” My husband is my biggest fan and has been my biggest fan to start a blog, along with another girlfriend. They kept letting me, “just do it!” So, the journey began not quite a year ago, not out of selfish ambition, but out of deep longing soul desire to share Christ, His Word, and womanhood with others. My prayer along this journey is to give Christ encouragement, share Him, be a blessing to others, and challenge us in our walk with Christ.

  1. What do you do in your spare time?

Write—I love to journal, play piano & sing, spend time with my family, blog and help others, create crafty things—though I must say I haven’t done much of that lately, but I love being creative.

  1. Where would you like to be in blogging five years from now?

Oh wow—to God’s glory and with His help, I would love to see In Christ I am SHE turned into (along with blogging) Sunday School material for women or young teen girls/young adults and/or in the form of a Bible Study format. I would also love to grow personally in the blogging world—I am pretty new to this whole thing, but desire to grow in my understanding of how it all works. My time is limited, so structure and scheduling is something that I really do need to work on!

  1. If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be and why?

Ummm……I think it would be Europe or Italy. I don’t count the Turkish airport…lol; though I would truly love to go to Israel once again—that was such a life-changing trip!

  1. What is your favorite scripture?

Matthew 6:33; Psalm 19:14; Jeremiah 33:3; Psalm 27:13-14.

  1. What is your favorite season? (Spring, summer, fall, winter)

Summer, Spring, Fall…I love snow for Christmas 😉

  1. One random thing about you.

I lived in the Philippines for a year.
