Libby over at A Noble Calling nominated me for some cool awards!  Fun right?

The Liebster Award...

6. Create 11 questions for the bloggers you've nominated to answer.
7. You must follow the blog that nominated you.

(Libby's questions:)

1. What are 3 of your favorite books- besides the Bible, of course?

Ooh, that's a tough one.  "Laddie: a True Blue Story" by Gene Stratton Porter, "Sherlock Holmes" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and "The Story Girl" by Lucy M. Montgomery, to name a few.

2. What is your favorite thing to bake?

I thought the last one was tough! Hmm...if pizza counts, then definitely pizza!

3. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be?

Hawaii, because I love surfing!

4. If you have to live somewhere besides the U.S., where would it be and why?

Scotland, because the country is beautiful, the people have lovely accents, and I would enjoy learning Gaelic! (Which actually isn't spoken very much any more)

The Lord is my strength and my song, and is become my salvation. - Psalm 118:14

8. Where do you turn when you are needing encouragement?

Oh dear. I do lots of different things!  Sometimes I pray, or sing. Singing always helps! Sometimes I read blog posts, especially Holley Gerth's because they are so uplifting.  If I'm really down, I explore Pinterest! It has both inspiration, (Bible verses, quotes etc.) and pins to make me laugh.

9. Do you know how to sew?


10. What is one thing that you don't know how to do, but would like to learn?

I really want to learn how to ice skate!

Hold a snake hands down! (Give me a nice, cute little green snake about the size of a pencil with a little pink tongue any day over a shark!)

  1. Mallory- I love all your answers- thank you so much for doing this! I would love to visit Scotland, too. And Facing the Giants is one of my all time favorite movies- I never get tired of watching it :)

    I also have a love for jackets- I have quite the collection. And I can so relate to you about remembering random information and forgetting some important things- just last night I totally forgot about some things that I needed to put into the dryer ;) This was so much fun to read! Hope you have a wonderful evening :)


    1. Hey Libby, I glad you enjoyed it! (Oh, I know what you mean about the dryer:) Thanks for nominating me. I just republished my answers because I found another blogger to nominate. (Yay!) I've let everyone I tagged know, so hopefully they will post their answers soon!

      Thanks again Libby!

    Thanks so much for nominating me! I feel honored :-) However, unfortunately, I'm going to have to pass this time around as I don't really have much time to participate right now.

    Again, thank you so much for the nomination! :-)

    God bless!

    1. You're welcome Amy! (I'm sorry you're busy, but that's okay:) Thanks for letting me know.
