April 12, 2019

The Sunshine Blogger Award is something fun that bloggers do, so today, I'm going to do that!


  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog. (Thank you, Anna!)
  • Answer the questions provided by the blogger who nominated you (11 maximum).
  • Nominate new bloggers and make up 11 questions for them to answer.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger logo in your post.


1. What’s your favorite book that you’ve read in the last couple of months?

I read The Green Ember series by S.D. Smith. They were amazing! Very well-written! I love the way Mr. Smith builds his worlds so vividly that they seem so real. And the characters are rabbits and wolves and eagles! But that doesn't make the book cheesy!!! I love this series so much!

2. What is your favorite hobby?

My favorite hobby would probably be writing. Surprising, right? XD I also really enjoy playing piano, and I want to be able to speak Spanish fluently, so I'm taking that as well.

3. What is the best Christian song you’ve listened to in the last month?

I love the song "Is He Worthy?" Andrew Peterson and Chris Tomlin have really nice versions of that song!

4. Morning person or night person?

Really hard question! I think it depends on the day. Lately, I've been a night person. ;)

5. In what ways have you seen God working in your life in the last year?

I've watched God use my writing to encourage other writers and young Christians, which in turn has been encouraging me! I'm just so grateful for the opportunity I have to write for Him and glorify Him in my writing! He has provided an amazing community for me to continue to grow in my writing and serve Him!

6. Where do you see yourself ten years from now?

This is hard to answer! Ten years from now, I hope to be a published authoror almost published. I also hope to be in a serious relationship with my future husband. I eventually want to be a wife, mother, and author. That would be my dream. However, I'm going to submit to whatever the Lord has planned for my life.

7. What is one quirky thing you do that most people would never guess?

Umm...I talk to myself, acting either as myself or as my characters. I also sing while staring at myself in the mirror. Is that "quirky"? XD

8. Have you ever memorized any passages of Scripture, and if so, what are they?

I've memorized several passages of Scripture. One of my favorites, though, is Psalm 19. So beautiful! Go read it!!

9.What are some blogs that are the most encouraging to you?

I recently started following I also enjoy Story Embers!

10. What’s your favorite sport?

Volleyball. (But if you consider dance a sport, I might say that.)

11. What’s your favorite thing about blogging?

I love blogging because I can post something new each week. People can follow my blog and comment on my posts. I love making connections with my readers and having a place online to which I can direct people.

  1. #7 is totally me!! I’ve only partly managed to break myself of doing it in public. And singing in a mirror is all the better if you have a hairbrush as a microphone. XD Answering the questions because I adore tags!!
    1. War in the Wasteland by Douglas Bond!!
    2. Contemporary war fiction (thanks to Kellyn Roth for helping me pinpoint that...I used to just say “war stories”)
    3. Read a book unless it’s a REALLY good movie!
    4. It’s a tie between Return to the Hiding Place and Saints and Soldiers: Airborne Creed
    5. Story Embers, TheReb, Reveries, Life of Heritage, Jenna Terese, and Stories by Firefly, to name a few!!
    6. Apples, especially dried
    7. Well, I have both and love them dearly, but...dogs.
    8. I do both but I do not enjoy either!! When I was little I thought it would be a skill I’d like to have, what for I’m not sure, but I can do it.
    9. Hmm,,,piano, violin, and guitar, if I have to! XD I’ve played all three in church before, but most of the time I’d rather do just about anything else because I don’t have a strong enough ear to be really confident on them.
    I haven’t read or watched anything Narnia, so I’m skipping the last two. ;) I loved your answers!!
