Mystery Blogger Award

Thanks to Mitch Teemley for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award. I’m honored to receive the nomination from a blogger I respect and am grateful for its timeliness: it’s the first award nomination I’ve had the time to respond to, thanks to a bit of a break in my normal life schedule.

The Rules

  • Use the logo and list the rules
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  • Tell your readers 3 things about yourself (see below)
  • Answer the questions you were asked (see below)
  • Nominate other blogs and notify them (see below)
  • Ask your nominees 5 questions of your choice, with one weird or funny question

Three Things About Me

  1. I’m freelance writer and published children’s book author. Quality children’s books by authors such as Mo Willems and Cynthia Rylant are my inspiration.
  2. My love of baking and cooking is balanced by a quest for physical fitness. As one of my daughter’s t-shirts says, “I work out because I love to eat!”
  3. Though I grew up with no special love for children, I am now passionate about children’s ministry. (If you read my blog, you already know this.)

The Five Questions for Me to Answer

  1. What moment or choice in your past do you wish you could undo? In general, I wish I would have stood up for myself more often. But on the other hand, those choices have made me what I am, so no regrets.
  2. Funniest movie/s you ever saw? Trying to think of a movie that made me laugh out loud…I love the repartee between the classic Thin Man movie characters, played by William Powell and Myrna Loy. Those movies weren’t strictly comedies but the actors’ interactions made me laugh. Though it’s not a movie, we’ve been laughing aloud as a family to The Honeymooners.
  3. Greatest song/s you’ve ever heard? I’m a huge fan of hymns both old and new: Amazing Grace, Great Is Thy Faithfulness, It Is Well with My Soul, and There Is a Fountain to name a few. I also love the contemporary songs The Mercy Tree (Lacey Sturm), Untitled Hymn (Chris Rice), and many by Keith and Kristyn Getty.
  4. Greatest truth you’ve ever learned? I had to discover the love of Christ for myself, not just believe it because it was something I’d heard about for my whole life as a church-goer. Internalizing and personalizing this belief was life-changing.
  5. What are the last words you want to hear before dying, and/or the first words you want to hear after dying? Lovely question. I long to hear “Until we meet again” from my family, and “Well done” from my dear Lord.

My Nominees: I have many interests and these choices reflect them.
