My friends at Shameless Plug (who are gifted artists and worship leaders, by the way) were kind enough to nominate our blog for a Liebster Award, which helps to spotlight blogs with less than 1,000 followers. Part of the deal is that I answer some fun questions so that you can get to know me a little better, so here goes!
Q.Which is your favorite season?
My favorite season is fall. Nice and cool (most of the time), and you have the end of the baseball season and the beginning of football season at the same time…I love it!
Q. What is your favorite movie, and why?
My favorite movie is probably “Chariots of Fire”…there is something about watching the scene where Eric Liddell wins the race after taking a stand for what he believes that is both motivating and convicting.
Q. If you could take your ideal vacation, where would you go and what would you do?
I’m torn. I love Australia, but would love to hang out in Alaska or the Seattle area and see the gorgeous views as well.
Q. If you had a chance to take 3 things with you to a deserted island, what would they be?
My wife, my kids, and a piano.
Q. What type of cuisine do you enjoy the most?
I eat almost anything, but love to have Pho…it is one of my favs. And I apologize for not having the slash above the o!
Q. Which band/artist would you like to see live in concert (if you haven’t already)?
David Ramirez. I love the artistry of his lyrics and the authenticity with which he plays.
Q. Do you have any hobbies you’d like to take up? List it/them!
I would love to learn more about electronics when it comes to rerouting them to digital technology. Yes, I am a geek.
Q. Who (one person) inspires you, and why?
My father, Lanny. He is 63, serving full-time in music ministry after retiring from teaching music, and getting ready to embark on a whole new journey as well. He works hard, loves hard, and follows after Jesus even harder.
Q. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Mint Chocolate Chip!
Q. Do you want to build a snowman?
Of course! Every year our family builds a snowman and takes a family picture with it. Sort of like tradition.
So now it is my turn. I have several blogs that I am going to nominate, and ask them to answer a few questions about themselves:
Brandon’s Bits–This is a blog by my friend, Brandon Jones, who is a pastor in Herreid, South Dakota. He writes highly intelligent, intellectual, and thoughtful blogs that you should check out.
Frayed Parent–This is by my friend, Jamin Garoutte, who also doubles as my counterpart in trying to remind each other to blog. But when he does (get on it!), he blogs honestly and thoughtfully.
Heart Mommy’s Strawberry Shortcake–This is a blog by a foster mom who does a wonderful job of sharing the struggles, joys, and doubts and fears of fostering.
Worship Synths–This is one of my resource pages for my craft–keys. Love it!
And the Questions for these bloggers:
1. What motivated you to start blogging?
2. What is your biggest challenge right now?
3. If you could have a conversation with one person, who would it be?
4. What is your biggest goal for the next year?
5. If you could share one thing with your readers, what would it be?
Thanks to all who participate, and may this shed some light on your blogs!
