Here goes...

My eleven facts :) 
1. I'm a saved by grace child of the King.

11. I love using pretty words, like – delightful, lovely, bliss, aurora, beyond, deliciously, aroma, meadow, faience, frolicking, serendipitous, unique... I'll stop there. ;) 


The Questions :) 

1. What is your favorite movie? 
JUST ONE??? Really, Jesseca? *sigh* I'd have to say Beautiful Dreamer is right at the top. (But I could give y'all a really long list. B-) ) 

Just LOOK. Aren't those two absolutely ADORABLE?!?!?! xD 


2. Favorite genre of books? 
Most anything, as long as I enjoy it. :) Usually historical fiction. I don't mind romance, as long as it's not mushy. ;) 



3. Books that are releasing in 2016 you are looking forward to reading? 
The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton 
Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin (though I probably should read Through Waters Deep first...hehe.) 
Defy by Tricia Mingerink (after I read Deny ^_^) 




4. If you could travel anywhere in the U.S., where would you go? 
Oh, that's an impossible question... I've always wanted to visit Hawaii, so I guess that's where I'd go. :) 




5. Do you play any instruments? 
Nope. But I played violin when I was like five to eight/nine. :) 




6. What is your favorite classical song? 
Classical? I never listen to classical music. (Like ever.) Hm... When I played violin, my teacher's husband taught piano and the recitals for all their students were always together. I remember some of the piano students playing Menuet 116 by Bach. I thought it was soo pretty! (That's cuz it is. ;) *nods*) 



7. Surprise! You've been given a ticket to meet your favorite author! Who is it? 
Oh dear, that's a tough one. I've already met one favorite author. B-) Maybe Susan Marlow? Or Sarah Sundin? Or Wanda Brunstetter? How about the person who's giving me the ticket, gives me tickets to see all my favorite authors? *nods* *fills out other questions and then comes back to this one* I've got it. I'd like to meet the Author of the Bible. And Someone has already paid the price and given me a secure ticket... ;) 

 Do you see it? :D 


8. Favorite outdoor activity? 
Camping, kayaking, reading in my ENO (that's a cool, colorful, lightweight hammock for those of y'all who didn't know.), and wading in the creek. : ) 




9. Would you rather do laundry or clean the kitchen? (I know, I'm making you work. ;P) 
How much laundry? What state is the kitchen in? xD I know...I'm answering a question with a question. I don't mind laundry, but I don't like folding the laundry. (That's seriously the worst part.) So maybe the kitchen. I don't know... *shrugs* 


10. What is your favorite book in the Bible and why is it your favorite? 
Grrr...this is a hard question!! I'll say Ruth. :) Because I love the story of her loyalty to Naomi, and Boaz and Ruth's love story. :) 




11. Who is your favorite historical character and why? 
I have lots! Maybe Jim Elliot...or Nate Saint. *thinks of a big, long list of dear ol' folks* Yeah, Jim and Elizabeth Elliot. :-) 


I nominate... 

It took me FOREVER to come up with 11 bloggers. If any of y'all don't want to do this tag, don't feel obligated. :) And if anyone who hasn't been nominated would like to do this tag, consider yourself nominated! ;)

  1. Oh, I had so much fun reading your answers! Thank you so much for doing the tag/award. :)
    Hey, I know what PK means! I had to learn all that lingo since my dad was a MK. ;)
    Totally agree with number 7. *nods* Pretty sure you could say the same about me. B-)
    Amazing movie! It's on my never-ending list of favorites.
    I absolutely loved your answer about your favorite author! That's one ticket you can never lose or misplace, praise God!!!
    Hawaii would be fun! But I'm just waiting for someone to say Washington D.C. Hasn't happened yet...:)
    You said Jim Elliot! *dances around the room*. He's what I would have said as well! Either him, Nate Saint, or Dietrich Bonhoeffer. They were all great men of faith that I admire. And thank you sooo much for not taking the easy way out and saying Jesus. I think I need to specify next time and say that He would be the implied favorite, that way people would HAVE to give another answer. ;)
    Okay, I think I've commented on enough. Looking forward to some new posts! I need to work on a few too. .. ;p

    1. Thank YOU for tagging me! :)
      Oh, yes, I always forget about that! ;) So yeah. You know our lingo. xD
      So...you're agreeing with #7 as in I AM a procrastinator? I definitely am! And yes, you are too. (By the way, shouldn't you be editing m'friend?) B-)
      ISN'T IT THE BEST??!!?!? Hmm...I may watch that one later. (We woke up to more snow this morning! ;) )
      Why, thank you. :) Yep, we never can. :)
      Oh, I didn't even think of D.C... But that is a place in the U.S. that I want to visit!! :D Especially after "Faith of our Fathers"; I want to see the Vietnam wall. :)
      I did! *jumps up and down* I admire all the men from Operation Auca (Jim Elliot, Nate Saint, Ed Mculley, Roger Youderian, and Pete Fleming) And their wives or sisters that went back to minister to the Aucas. <3 Have you seen the movie, "End of the Spear"?
      Dietrich Bonhoeffer...that sounds familiar. :-/
      Haha, well I'd already seen several who have Jesus as their answer, so I wanted to be different. ;)
      Some of the upcoming posts may be...old news, so to speak, to you. ;) Thanks for commenting, Jesseca!!

    2. She is waiting on a certain someone to finish editing... B-)
      Almost there Jesseca! ;)

    3. Faith: I was giving you a hard time. ;)
      Yes, I'm am agreeing with that statement. And maybe I should be doing something else. . . ;P
      Snow?! We have weather in the 50s again. It's been a very mild year!
      Yes!!! After I saw that I wanted to see the wall so bad! That's one of the top places I want to go. :)
      I have seen the movie. It's so, so good! As is "Beyond the Gates of Splendor" (the documentary movie.) It's been a while; I need to watch them again!
      Dietrich Bonhoeffer was killed for being part of the German Resistance during WWII. He was a Christian pastor and his story is just incredible.
      Haha, well, I'm still looking forward to reading them! ;)

      Rebekah: I can't wait to hear your thoughts when you've finished!!! :D We've been pretty busy and I haven't had a ton of time to work on it anyway, so take your time. ;)

    4. Jesseca,
      You should be, but I enjoy your lengthy comments, so it's okay. ;)
      Yes, a couple of inches! Pottery was canceled this morning because of it. (Again.) We're gonna have so many make-up days. ;)
      I haven't seen "Beyond the Gates of Splendor", and I've into seen "End of the Spear" once. It was good and ...real. Wow. :)
      That's amazing!! Now I know where I've heard the name, too. ;)
      Hehe, okay. xD

      Delete
    5. Haha, yeah. . .my comments always end up being too long, don't they? :P
      Oh, fun! We have had virtually no snow this year. Which is fine with me. :D

      Delete
    6. Nope. I like 'em. ; )
      Ah, of course it's fine by you... ;) Personally I'm loving all the snow we're getting. ;)

  2. I loved reading your answers, Faith! :)
    I have never seen "Beautiful Dreamer" before. I might just have to put that one on my list of movies to watch along with "It's a Wonderful Life". ;)
    Hawaii would be a really fun place to visit. I have never been there before, but one of my cousins lives there.
    I hardly ever listen to classical music either. Although I do play quite a bit of it on my violin. ;)
    I really like doing laundry, but I agree with you, the worst part is folding it all. :)

    1. Yes, you should!! It's SO GOOD!!! It's not a very common movie, but...yeah, it's an amazing story of love and commitment. ;) I first saw it on TV, but since then I've found it on DVD from Amazon. ^_^
      Wouldn't it?? You have a cousin who lives in Hawaii?! That's awesome!!!!
      Yeah, it often seems to be that way. :)
      I don't see why we have to fold laundry... If everything was wrinkle-free I would just shove it in the closet/dresser and not fold it. B-) No, I wouldn't. Mom would die. ;) LOL.

      Thanks for commenting, Rebekah!! Glad you enjoyed. =)

  3. It was fun reading your answers Faith! I can totally relate to fact #10. Most people try to tell me that I am strange though and that they are all pickles. But one is sweet and one is sour--there is a big difference! :)
    I wish I had thought of that author when I answered Jesseca's questions! He would have been perfect!

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Lydia!
      Yes, I don't see how people can say that! It's totally NOT the same. ;) I made my own dill pickles one time. They were good, but they would really make you pucker! It was great because I was the only one that liked them. B-)
      He worked out perfectly as my favorite Author. :)

      Thanks for commenting!! :D

  9. Told you I'd make it around to doing a "real" comment! I'll start at the top and work my way down so beware this may be a long comment!

    Facts:
    I am every one of the facts you mentioned except #8. As far as #10, I like any pickles. Sorry. :P

    1: Never watched it.
    2: Totally agree. Nearly anything suits me!
    3: The Silent Blade-YES! I haven't heard of the next author. Also with you on the third one. (After I read Dare and Deny!)
    4: Possibly with you on this one. I have wanted to visit Hawaii for a long time but I also want to head over to your side of the nation and up to Washington as well as revisiting Zion Nat. Park.
    5: No instruments.
    6: I don't listen to ANY classical. But probably Beethoven's Ode to Joy
    7: Love your answer but you've already been told that a thousand times. I have waaay too many authors I'd love to meet!
    8: Anything outdoors works for me!
    9: I'm just gonna skip this one...
    10: I really like 1 and 2 Timothy. They are really encouraging to me!
    11: All wonderful people! Don't know if I could choose!

    So there you go with my extensive comment!

    1. About fact #8 – I haven't met a fellow potter yet. Except for the kids in my class, of course. ;) Blah, no. Sweet pickles are terrible...but you're entitled to your own opinion. ;)

      The Silent Blade, yes. :) Sarah Sundin is an amazing author of Christian WWII fiction. I love her books. :) I want to read Deny, and I've it has a heart-rending ending... ;)
      Yes, you need to come to my side of the country! :D And when I go to see the Pacific Ocean I'll look y'all up. ;)
      Haha, yep, everyone liked that one. ;) It's a good problem to have I guess.
      Yes, 1st and 2nd Timothy are great books. :)

      Haha! Well, thank you for your extensive comment, Bethany. I enjoyed it. :)

    2. Should've said "I've HEARD it has a heart-rending ending" ^.^

    3. So we can still be friends even though I like sweet pickles? :P

    4. Haha, yes. ;) We can still be friends...friends can agree to disagree. ;P
