The Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello, lovely readers!
Savannah  kindly nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger award, and since I haven't done a tag for quite a long time, I decided to give it a try. Thanks again, Savannah!

~ Rules ~
 ~Answer 11 questions from your nominee
~Tag 11 bloggers
~Ask them 11 new questions

Do you own any signed books?
I have a signed copy of The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser, written by the lovely Hosanna Emily.

What are three of the prettiest books you own? Here's two of my favorite book covers that I own:

If you could re-write the ending of one book, which book would it be? I'm going to have to think about this one for a while.......

What is the last movie you watched, and what did you think of it? A recent new movie I watched was Is Genesis History? It's a great documentary, by the way. :)

How did you come up with the title for your blog? The title of my blog reflects what I wanted my readers to realize through what they saw here; their ultimate Purpose and Promise. I did have quite a time coming up with a name that fit, but I'm pretty happy with it. :)

What's one of your favorite memories from 2017 (so far)? 2017 has had some great memories so far, but I would have to say that one of my top favorites would be the amazing trip that I went on with my church's youth group in February. 

How is a raven like a writing desk? They are both related to writing. xD

What are your three favorite fandoms? I'm honestly not into the "fangirl" type of thing that most people are for their favorite music, movies, books, etc. Since I assume that most the things that most people have fandoms about fall into one of those three categories, I'll shift the question around a little bit. My favorite fiction book is definitely The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. One of my favorite musics artists is Casting Crowns, and the Anne of Green Gables movies would be up there with my favorite movies. 

Do you prefer writing by hand or typing?  It depends, really. For short stories and some poems, I like handwriting them, but I always type from second drafts on for longer works. 

What's a story you'd like someone to do a re-telling of? A Little Princess would be an intriguing start for a re-telling....

  1. Thank you so much for tagging me, Emily!! :D

  2. What trip did you go on with your youth group? I enjoyed reading your answers to this tag! It sounds like an interesting one. :)

    1. We visited the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter... it was such an amazing experience! =)

      Thanks for reading, Bethany!

    2. Oh I really want to visit there!

  3. Hey Emily! That you so much for mentioning and tagging me! =D
    Oh, the Creation Museum is awesome! (reading previous comments here.) I went there back in 2013, before the Ark Encounter though, so I'd love to go back someday and see it! What was your favorite thing about the museum?
    You get a high five for not being a fangirl, I'm with you there!
    I loved reading your answers, and I look forward to doing it myself!

    1. No problem, Mikayla! :D
      Yes, the Creation Museum is pretty awesome. I especially loved the planetarium. :)
      *high fives back* Glad to find someone else who thinks like that!
      Thanks- I'm looking forward to reading your answers as well!

  4. I liked hearing your answers! This looks like a fun tag to do!

  5. Loved reading your answers! "The Chronicles of Narnia" is definitely my favorite series. Isn't C.S. Lewis an awesome writer? I haven't read all of his works, such as "Mere Christianity" and "The Screwtape Letters", but I hope to soon. Who is your favorite character from Narnia?

    1. Thank you, Korin! I love Narnia too- C.S. Lewis was an amazing writer! I've read some of his other works besides the Chronicles of Narnia, but not all of them yet.
      My favorite character.... hmm, I haven't really thought about it, but besides Aslan, I'd probably say Lucy. :)
      What's yours?

    2. I'd have to say the same. :) I love how much faith and trust Lucy has in Aslan, and how much they love each other. I'd like to be the same in my relationship with Jesus.

  6. This was a really great post, and tag!! I think I might do this on my blog....... *wink wink* =DDDDDDDD
    Have a wonderful evening!! ;)
    Jaidyn Elise

  7. Oh Emily, you've really seen "Is Genesis History?" My mum and I were watching a trailer about it and I would watch it in a heartbeat if given the chance. I love your questions and would like to do this tag on my blog, too, if time and priorities permit. Thank you for making questions that spur us on to godly thinking and living! <3

    1. Yes, I have! I was glad to get the chance to see it, and I hope you get the chance as well! IT's quite informative and interesting

      Feel free to do this tag on your blog- I would love to read your answers. Thank you for your kind thoughts, as always! ♥

  8. Hello! I'm sorry that this isn't related to your post but I couldn't find any contact info on your blog. I saw from another blog (Adventures on the Horizon) that you are a fan of the Millie Keith A Life of Faith series. Me too! In fact, I have started a group of people to work on getting the series back into print. If you're interested, you can find more info in my blog post. https://hannahloviisawriter.com/2017/04/25/calling-all-millie-keith-fans/

    1. Hello! I'm sorry that you couldn't find my contact info (I do have a contact form link on my about page ;)
