Liebster Award!

Greetings, friends!

I got tagged by Emma from pictureperfectionist to do the Liebster Award! Thanks Emma! Being new to blogging, I never have done one of these types of tags, but I'm looking forward to it :)

Here are the questions Emma gave me to answer:

1. Favorite word?
Maybe 'Habawaaaah...?' or 'Yahoozah' (Pronounced Ya-Who-Zah). They're fun to say. My old piano teacher used to say 'that's a doozy' which is a fun word, too :)

2. Number of siblings?

3. Last watched movie?
I watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding last. It had a lot of funny parts, but also a good amount of other things that weren't good according to my family biblical standards and prefrence, so I give it a 3 star rating.

4. What book do you want to read next?
I would like to read 'The Harvester' or 'Laddie: A true blue story' next, both of which are by Gene Stratton-Porter. But since we do not own them, I'm not sure if I'll be able to read them yet :)

5. Favorite movie? 
Probably Seasons of Grey--no, not Shades of Gray; that's a movie that I've never watched and never hope to :) Seasons of Grey is a modern day story of Joseph from the Bible. A lot of Christian movies that my family and I have watched tend to be sorta cheesy (anyone else know what I'm talking about?), but Seasons of Grey was quite well made in our opinion, and the story line was pretty good being translated into a possible modern-time situation of what Joseph went through. Anyway, it was a good movie. 

6. Favorite book?
Can any book-lover have only one favorite book?? My top favorite would currently be Westward Ho! by Charles Kingsley. It is such a good book! It really has a mix of every element that makes a book good (in my opinion, anyway) : it's well-written, has lots of good adventure, some really good spiritual truths and values, a realistic plot, noble and lovable characters, an unexpected but fantastic ending, and a little bit of romance. I connected with the characters and the story, and don't remember having a very hard time getting into it as sometimes I do with a book. I don't have any complaints about it, that I can think of; there are parts that are not exactly nice and fuzzy and agreeable, but they are part of what makes the book and it's plot realistic. 
Okay, enough of the review. Among my other top favorites are Michael O'Halloran and The Keeper of the Bees both by Gene Stratton-Porter, God's Smuggler by Brother Andrew and the list could go on and on. But this answer is getting really long, so I'll stop.

8. Did you notice I skipped number seven?
Not at first! :) 

9. ( I bet you're checking every number before the question now, huh? :D) Guilty blogging habit?
That would be procrastinating. Once I get a good post idea, a bunch of others start popping into my head so then I get sorta overwhelmed and don't do it. Or I'll start a post, don't finish it and then have a hard time getting myself to face it again. Or maybe being a perfectionist.

10. Latté or just plain coffee? Or tea? 
I don't drink coffee yet, so I guess I'd be tea. But then again, I don't drink tea very much either.

11. Will you follow my blog if you don't already? ;)
I already do follow your blog,  just not officially. I'm not sure if I'm going to start officially following blogs yet, but maybe someday ;)

I hope you enjoyed these questions and answers! Sorry for the length of some of them ;)

Now, I nominate Abby from Author of my Hope, Anna from Journey Journal and Big world, Bigger God, Aria from Purrfectly Inspired, Britt from Ranch Life, and Ashley from Precious Moments.  {In reading over this post, I realized that all of these bloggers' names start with 'A' except one! What's up with that? Sorry Britt :) }
I'm supposed to nominate 11 people, but I don't know enough bloggers to tag that many :) Well, maybe I do, but others have already been tagged or wouldn't be interested in doing it. 

Here are the Rules:

* Link back to the person who tagged you
* Answer 11 questions
* Tag 11 bloggers who have less than 1000 readers
* Ask them 11 questions
* Let them know you have tagged them through social media

And my questions:
1. What is your favorite thing to do?
2. Favorite book(s)?
3. Favorite subject in school?
4. Guilty blogging habit?
5. Favorite thing about blogging?
6. Your favorite gift that God has given you? (It can be anything from a talent, character quality, object or person, a spiritual gift, something He's done for you, etc. But if your answer is giving His life for you, since that is something that everyone expects every believer to say, tell something else along with that. {Does that make sense?} )
7. Do you enjoy cooking or baking more? 
8. How many siblings do you have?
9. What is something in creation that shouts God's glory and majesty to you?
10. What are your ambitions/desires for when you get older?
11. How does Psalm 139:14 say that you are made? According to Jeremiah 29:11, what kind of plans does God have for you?

I hope you enjoyed this post. Stay tuned for an upcoming Resurrection Sunday post! {Yes, yes, I know, it's late. But that's the way I am :) }
