What’s your biggest Pet Peeve?
Do miscommunications count as a pet peeve? Because if so, that’s on the top of my list. For me, I’d much rather ask clarifying questions then wonder and stew over something. People who know me are used to hearing “What do you mean by that?” and “Are you talking about such-and-such?” It sometimes gets annoying to my family, but it’s worth it in the end. 🙂
Do your parents have to approve all your clothing?
Well, let’s see… I’d never wear something they didn’t approve of, but I don’t always ask before I get something. I can only remember a very few times when they told me they didn’t like something I was wearing. In those cases, I was fine giving away/getting rid of those articles of clothing. Mostly though, we see eye-to-eye and so it’s never been an issue.
Do you like country music?
Humm, I’m quite bad at knowing the genre’s of music I listen to. I think I like country music though… At least the songs that are uplifting. 🙂
How many children do you want?
I’ve never thought of a number, but I believe that children are a blessing from God, and if I get married and if God gives me a ‘big’ family, I’d be quite happy. I love children but I’m not as good with them as a lot of girls. 🙂
Do you want to live in the country or city in future years?
Hopefully always the country. I’m not necessarily a farm girl, but I’m a country girl through and through!
Do you have any big fears?
The only big one I can think of is driving. I’m going to conquer that, though. 🙂
Who are your role models (besides Jesus =)
The first people I think of are my parents (both my ‘original’ and my ‘adopted’ sets) and two of my siblings, David and Helena. Then there are people who are my role models in different areas of life: My cousin, Aubrey, with her dedication to music (for me it would be with writing) is a huge role model for me. Corrie ten Boom, Brother Andrew, Patricia St. John, Joseph (in the Old Testament), and Esther, are a few more of the people who come to mind right away. They are my role models in varies areas: the Christian walk, writing, attitude, etc…
What helps you pull out of a bad mood?
Reminding myself that I really don’t have a reason to have a bad mood (meaning, I’ve got it way better then lots of people) swinging while listening to music, taking a walk, writing, praying, taking a nap, reading an uplifting book, dancing around the room being crazy, or faking being happy until I really am happy again.
What would you do with a billion dollars?
The non-specific answer: Lots of stuff.
More specifically: Build a platform for my writing so my books could go out and begin changing the world. Help out with medical (and other) needs in third-world countries. Support missionaries. Build/buy several houses/estates around the world for people in ministry to come and stay at when they needed some time away. Travel the United States and the world, writing, talking and encouraging the people I meet. And that’s just the beginning. 🙂 (Of course that is all subject to change if I ever do have a billion dollars.)
In your opinion, at what point does a friendship with a member of the opposite gender go too far?
Oh goodness. I don’t think I’ve ever talked about this subject on Noveltea. I don’t think I ever imagined I would, either. 🙂
I don’t think it’s the same in every situation, so it’s hard to answer. For me, I think as long as I am careful not to become emotionally attached (and I have family members who would point it out to me if they thought there was an issue), then I’m good. And, if I do find myself becoming emotionally attached, I spend less time with the guy and pray about it, etc… So, I guess that’s my answer: As long as they aren’t emotionally attached or spending too much time together, I don’t think there’s a problem. (In most cases, anyway. 🙂
What is your favourite bible verse?
