This week my friend Sara Willoughby at romans535blog.wordpress.com nominated my blog for the award! As part of this award, she asked 11 questions and I would like to share those answers with you. :)
By the way, if you haven't already checked out her blog, you definitely should! :)
1. What is something that most people wouldn't guess about you?
Most people probably wouldn't guess that I really enjoy public speaking! I'm not competing in NCFCA this year, but I still really love it! In a conversation, I am usually pretty shy, but the bigger the crowd when I am giving a speech, the better. :) Some of my favorite events to compete in were impromptu, apologetics, illustrated oratory, duo, open interpretation, and others!
2. Why did you decide to start your blog?
My friend Sara was my biggest inspiration. When she started her blog, I was so inspired, and wanted to start a blog. The Young Writer's Workshop also helped me start. They encouraged me to reach out to build my platform, and they have encouraged me each step of the way!
I named my blog "Growing in His Grace" because God has been showing me the importance of remaining in His grace. His grace is so amazing!
3. What was the last blog post you read?
Actually, it was Sara's Sunshine Blogger Award post. :) romans535blog.wordpress.com/2018/04/09/sunshine-blogger-award/ I also read Ana Harris' post sharing the next step in her health journey: anaharriswrites.com
4. Sunshine or rain?
Sunshine. Definitely! :) I do enjoy rain for short periods of time when I visit my friends in Washington though! :)
5. When was the last time you laughed and why?
Oh, wow! I have laughed a lot the last while, so it is hard for me to remember which was last... hmm...
Ok, I'll do the highlights. :) One of them was laughing with my dad as we played a game together. Or joking with my mom about broccoli. Or giggling with my twin bro about his most recent ballot party. Or laughing with my piano teacher as we worked on theory together.
Wow, lots of laughs. =)
6. What are three things you've always wanted to do?
Hmm... write a book, teach piano, and have a cat? :)
But ultimately, my most important desire is to draw closer to the Lord.
7. What is one of your favorite Christmas memories?
I think one of my favorite happened when I was around eight - my brother and I were really into lego bricks, and we played with them all the time! :) So that year, as Christmas drew near, I knew exactly what to get him - the new lego motor home. My mom brought the wrapping paper and tape back and forth between our two bedrooms.
What we didn't know is that we both got each other the same gift! :) We had matching motor homes. :)
One other memory that makes me laugh was one year, as I opened my gift from my brother and under the wrapping paper I found... towels? I was like "Wow... towels!... Thanks!..." As I unwrapped the towels (maybe to get a better look, I don't remember) there lay the scrapbooking kit I really wanted! He had disguised it so I wouldn't guess, and I think my reaction was exactly what he wanted. :D
8. Beach or mountains?
I really enjoy the beach! I love the salty air and the feel of the salt water, as well as all the shells and crabs! One time, my friend and I found hermit crabs on the beach! That was fun! :)
9. What fictional world(s)/character(s) would you most like to visit?
Hmmm... I would really like to meet Pollyanna and visit her town! I also would enjoy meeting Heidi, Jenny from Across Five Aprils, and visit Odyssey!
10. If your life was a book, what would the title be?
His Plans Above Mine. The Lord's plans are always so much better than mine! It is so neat to watch Him lead, guide, and provide! :)
11. In one sentence, sum up what your blog is about.
Growing in God's grace - living for Him every day.
Whether or not you decide to participate, I want each of you young ladies I am nominating to know that your blogs are amazing! Keep shining for Jesus!
