Answers {Part II}

Okay, friends. Here we go. Part II of your super fun questions.... answered. See Part I here.

What do you love most about being married?
The thing I love the most about being a wifey {besides my husband himself} is managing our home. Making dinner and doing laundry are boring when you are just doing it for yourself, but when you are doing it to show your love and support for someone else, it makes it seem more worthwhile. I truly enjoy making Micah's lunch each day, keeping our house clean, and having a home to invite our friends and family into, in order to share life with them.

Married life.

When did you become a Christian?
This answer is two-fold. I "asked Jesus into my heart" when I was five years old. I think I had real faith at that point and I know God was watching over me for the next twenty years of my life. However, it wasn't until I was 25 years old that I actually began to understand God's unfailing love for me shown through the sacrifice of his Son, Jesus. I finally began to grasp {as much as a mere human can} the grace of God and it transformed my life drastically. I no longer "acted" like a Christian because I was "supposed" to,  but I began to live a life of obedience because I truly loved the Savior who loved me first {I John 4:19}.

What is your all time favorite book?
The English nerd side of me loves this question. The obvious answer is the Bible, but other than that... I usually say The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom. If you haven't read it, you should. It's a real Holocaust story full of faith and hope in the face of extreme hatred and cruelty. But you know I'm not going to stop there... My favorite old book is Jane Eyre. My favorite new book{s} are Harry Potter {#4 is my personal fave}. If you are anti-Harry Potter and you haven't read them, I will just say this: do not neglect them because you've convinced yourself that the series is just some craze of the early 2000s meant for teenagers, or full of evil wizardy stuff. It's a beautifully written story with gripping characters, classic allusions, a plot that will make you shiver, laugh, and cry at various times {possibly all at once}, and themes of unconditional love, loyalty and redemption. Bam. Read them. I finally convinced my mom to read them after ten years of her foolish resistance :)

Why were you the weirdest roommate in the Greenhouse?
This was an anonymous questions asked by one of my college roommates, and I think I know which one. Only the weirdest girl in the Greenhouse would ask this...

Thanks for your questions, friends. It was fun to answer them. XOXO!

    The Hiding Place is SUCH a good book, I've read it multiple times and seem to love it more with each read!

    I've never read HP (for no real reason) but have friends that keep telling me to read them. I think I must dig in at some point :)

    Ok, so I don't think I will ever understand reading Jane Eyre! I had to read it for a class in college, which I actually transferred out of mostly because I didn't end up needing it but also because my teacher was a nutty crazy feminist (her husband took HER last name!). Anyways, I just couldn't get past the language thing. I guess I just prefer the movies, haha :)
