The Liebster Award!

img_7125-1I would like to start off this post by thanking Courtney from 1Timothy412girl blog for nominating me for this award. Thank you so much! And sorry that it took me so long to get this post out!

The rules are

  1. Answer the 11 questions you are provided with by the person who nominated you.
  2. Nominate 11 new bloggers who have less than 500 followers.
  3. Post the Liebster award to your blog.

Now let’s jump on into the questions!

  1. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you? Oh that’s hard…I guess when my cousin, my sister, and I were at our grandparents house. Here is the story; all three of us were sitting on the porch talking, when we saw a chipmunk climb into the bottom of a birdbath in the backyard. Time out…a little explanation is needed here! The bowl part of the birdbath had fallen off of the top, so all that was left was basically an upside down ice cream cone with a whole on the pointed end. Anyway, that is where the chipmunk jumped into the birdbath. So of course we went to see if we could “capture” it. We were able to see it, and I even took a picture of it, but I must have deleted it, because I can’t find it anywhere. Shortly after we were trying to help free the chipmunk by lifting up the edge of the birdbath, but he wouldn’t come out. We put the edge back down and then suddenly the little chipmunk shot out of the top of the birdbath straight towards us! It was so hilarious!
  2. What is your dream job? A singer/musician, or worship leader. Music is something that I thoroughly enjoy, and I believe that God has gifted me with this talent to glorify Him.
  3. What is your favorite song, and why? This is such a hard question! You all know I love music! Right now I would have to say Thy Will by Hilary Scott, because it has some very powerful lyrics.
  4. Do you have any pets, and if so what are they like? My family has one dog named Daisy. She is an Austalian Shepherd/Short-haired Collie mix, and she is about three and a half years old. She is super energetic, and can sometimes be a little sassy if she wants attention.
  5. Are you a night owl or an early bird? How early do you wake up, or how late do you stay up? I guess I would say I am an early bird. I wake up at 6:30 a.m. and go to bed around 8:30 to 9:00 p.m.
  6. When you were little did you have any imaginary friends? If so what were they like? Yes of course I did. I don’t remember much of them, but I do recall having one named Fred…
  7. What is your favorite food? And what is your favorite dessert? Favorite foods would be anything with potatoes, pasta, and bread. Favorite dessert would be cheesecake, or ice cream. So I guess cheesecake ice cream!
  8. What are your beliefs? These lyrics from the Newsboys state most of my beliefs…     In this time of desperation
    When all we know is doubt and fear
    There is only one foundation
    We believe, we believe
    In this broken generation
    When all is dark, You help us see
    There is only one salvation
    We believe, we believe

    We believe in God the Father
    We believe in Jesus Christ
    We believe in the Holy Spirit
    And He’s given us new life
    We believe in the crucifixion
    We believe that He conquered death
    We believe in the resurrection
    And He’s comin’ back again, we believe

    So, let our faith be more than anthems
    Greater than the songs we sing
    And in our weakness and temptations
    We believe, we believe!

    We believe in God the Father!
    We believe in Jesus Christ!
    We believe in the Holy Spirit!
    And He’s given us new life!
    We believe in the crucifixion!
    We believe that He conquered death!
    We believe in the resurrection!
    And He’s comin’ back again!

    Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
    In the here and now, let love invade!
    Let the church live loud our God we’ll say
    We believe, we believe!
    And the gates of hell will not prevail!
    For the power of God, has torn the veil!
    Now we know Your love will never fail!
    We believe, we believe!

    We believe in God the Father
    We believe in Jesus Christ
    We believe in the Holy Spirit
    And He’s given us new life!
    We believe in the crucifixion!
    We believe that He conquered death!
    We believe in the resurrection!
    And He’s comin’ back,
    He’s comin’ back again!
    He’s comin’ back again!
    We believe!
    We believe

  9. What are the things you stand for? I stand for peace, Jesus the only real source of peace. I stand for loving one another just as Jesus loved us. I stand for impacting the world, and sharing Jesus with others. I stand for fellowshipping with others.
  10. What is the most important character trait in someone? That is a hard one…I would say being Christ-like, or humble. Having the fruits of the spirit are also very important traits to have. And those are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
  11. Who is your role model in life?  Jesus.
