I'm a Liebster.

 Here is something a little different:
Sarah from Doodle Pad tagged me with the "Liebster Award" (which I had no idea existed, by the way), and because I'm blowing the dust off the keyboard and rediscovering the world of blogging, I'll be a good sport and cooperate :)

1) Each person must list 11 things about themselves.

2) Answer the 11 questions that the tagger has set for you PLUS you MUST create 11 questions of your own for the 11 people you will nominate with this award.

3) Choose up to 11 bloggers linking them to your post.

4) Go to their page and inform them of the nomination.

5) Absolutely NO tag backs (no awarding who awarded you).

6) Remember to ONLY award bloggers with less than 200 followers

11 facts regarding me, myself and I:
1. Jesus Christ is more important to me than anything else on this earth. My greatest desire is to know Him intimately and become more like Him. He has given me salvation and to my great joy, He is willing to take my life's broken mess and turn it into something beautiful. 
2. I would rather do hard labor (preferably outside) than anything involving sitting at a desk. It makes my brain feel better.
3.  I find myself tripping over my own idea of perfectionism all the time, instead of looking to Christ for His righteousness. This is one of my greatest weaknesses. 
4. I love adventure and will go out of my way to find it. A flat tire, getting lost in the woods, falling on my face, and getting bucked off of a horse all sound like exciting activities :) Please note: depending on the situation, my attitude is not always this optimistic. I'm speaking in general here, people. 
5. My attitude is at it's worst when I find myself with nothing to do. 
6. Horses are my happy place!
7. Listening to music is one of my favorite pastimes, but I have very limited musical abilities.
8. I'm terrible at making small talk, and it irritates me. 
10. I like mixer games. Actually, I like group games of any kind...
11. I have strange dreams, and find myself trying to figure them out all throughout the day.
9. (I just realized that I missed 9) I don't have a normal, but then again, who does?
12. Insects don't bother me, but I'm terrified of mice.
(How many of these do I have to do again?)

Alright, here are my answers to Sarah's questions: 

(these are really great questions, by the way!)
1. Why do you blog?
 My prayer is that through blogging I can encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ, share the gospel with those that do not know Jesus personally, and ultimately to glorify my Lord. The purpose of this blog is to give you a taste of what God has placed on my heart as He continues to teach me more about Himself.
2. Do you like pickles? 
What kind of pickles? As far as I know, I haven't met one that I don't like.
3. Are you afraid of heights? 
Not usually. But you won't find me any closer to the edge of a cliff than necessary. 
4. If you were guaranteed a position in any job/career, what would you want it to be?
Working at an espresso stand :) 
5. What would you value most in a spouse? (this is hard!)
My husband needs to love Jesus more than anyone or anything else, including me. An eternal perspective is something I would really value. I want him to be unattached to this world, with a strong desire for ministry. On a more specific note, I would really appreciate a husband that is encouraging. 
6. Would you rather go bungee jumping, clean a pig's pen, or eat a jalepeno?
I would rather eat a jalepeno
7. What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I don't have a favorite... But if I had to answer right now I would say something with chocolate and peanut butter.
8. Have you ever seen a shooting star?
9. What is your favorite camp memory? Or campING memory?
I have WAAAAAY too many camp memories. One of my favorites was singing while washing dishes and having a soap suds war. In the midst of our battle Miss Krissy, the leader of the dish crew, walked around the corner and we all froze. She looked like she was going to scold us, but pulled out her camera instead :) I have some great memories praying and singing praises with my brothers and sisters in Christ as well. *sigh* I love camp!
10. What is the coolest (as in unique or interesting, not temperature) place you've ever been?
Indonesia. Hands down.
1. Heels or flats? Flipflops or boots?
Flats. Boots (better for horseback riding). 

Here are the nominated bloggers (sorry, I don't know too many other bloggers):
Olivia and Abigail
Kati Shiloh
Autumn Rose

And here are my questions for the nominees:
1. If you had one day completely free of obligations and responsibilities, how would you spend your time?
2. What is your greatest fear?
3. What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
4. If you had the opportunity to meet anyone you wanted to, who would it be? (living or deceased)
5. What is the most exciting thing that's happened to you in the past year?
6. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
7. Do you enjoy traveling? 
8. What are you most passionate about?
9. What is your biggest pet peeve?
10. What is something that puzzles you?
11. What is your favorite song?

That was a lot harder than I thought it would be....

P.s. Go look up what "liebster" means :) I did!
