no. 1 What verse and chapter of the Bible inspired you the most this past month, and why?
I have really been liking 2 Corinthians 4:7-12 But this beautiful treasure is contained in us—cracked pots made of earth and clay—so that the transcendent character of this power will be clearly seen as coming from God and not from us. 8 We are cracked and chipped from our afflictions on all sides, but we are not crushed by them. We are bewildered at times, but we do not give in to despair. 9 We are persecuted, but we have not been abandoned. We have been knocked down, but we are not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our bodies the reality of the brutal death and suffering of Jesus. As a result, His resurrection life rises and reveals its wondrous power in our bodies as well. 11 For while we live, we are constantly handed over to death on account of Jesus so that His life may be revealed even in our mortal bodies of flesh. 12 So death is constantly at work in us, but life is working in you.
no. 2 What’s a book (fiction or nonfiction) that you read or continued reading this past month that reminded you of an important truth?
I re-read To Get to You this past month and it really reminded me that love is forever. Like even when it seems like it may not be there it still is. Hanging by one thread most likely, but that love can be re woven into your heart. or your broken heart stitched back up. It was mostly Riley and his Dad that showed me that small truth.
no. 3 Do you have any goals for yourself this month? If so, what are they?
Agh goals. I actually put some of these down on my last post so you can check them out here
no. 6 Can you share one quotable thing from your novel/book (if applicable) that you recently wrote?
no. 7 What biblical character would you get along with the most, and why?
I don't know.... so I'm thinking Moses. Moses was bad at public speaking *raises hand* he also had a small temper that sometimes got out of control when he saw something he was passionate about. That's me with veterans, books, and the like. Moses was also a writer. If I remember right he wrote 5 books of the bible so we'd get along with the writing aspect of things if we would both actually talk. I am pretty sure Moses was an introvert. Like I totally understand the words getting all twisted.
Exodus 4:10The Voice (VOICE)
Moses:Please, Lord, I am not a talented speaker. I have never been good with words. I wasn’t when I was younger and I haven’t gotten any better since You revealed Yourself to me. I stutter and stammer. My words get all twisted.
no. 8 Favorite new word unearthed from the dictionary?
no. 9 In the blogging world, what’s one thing you have learned about yourself?
Well I have learned that I can ramble for a l o n g time about books and my writings. But I think the largest thing is the community of writers here that inspire me to write more. It helped my learn that even though you are writing a book as an individual, there are still hoards of people backing you and inspiring you.
no. 10 What fictional character would you spend the day with, and what would you do?
