A Purpose for Random Questions

Who loves random questions?
I sure do!  If you were to ask my family + friends, they would without a doubt agree with you.  I'm constantly asking random questions ... or discussing random thoughts with myself (to this I get the "Oh Alisha" eyeroll LOL).
What if random questions suddenly had a "purpose"? Oooooh what a day that would be .... to finally ask (or answer) random questions, and there actually be a "purpose".

Well ... what if I told you that random questions well have a "purpose" in April????? I would like to announce .....

So here's what you have to do in order to make this video happen ;)

You can either email me
If you email me, please include the following information ...

-Your name
Specify in your email if you'd like to remain anonymous or if you wouldn't mind your name being mentioned with your question.

-Your questions
you are more than welcome to send as many questions as you'd like.  Enter whatever questions ente…

We Don't Live Forever

Five years ago today, my best friend took his last breath. 
This post is in honor of Papa Dan. All of us think that we are invincible.  That we will live forever.  Or possibly that our close ones will live forever.
For the longest time, I thought that my best friend would live forever.  To me he was 72 going on forever.  He would never pass away.  He would be here for my high school graduation, my wedding, and golly - in my mind he was going to meet everyone of my children.
However, God has a different plan than we do.  When He says our time is up, it's up.  I learned this five years ago, after my best friend passed away.
For a long time my grandpa had Kennedy's Disease, a neuro-muscular disease. He had trouble swallowing his food and when he would swallow his food he would choke. In October of 2008 we went to Iowa to visit family and friends. While we were there my grandpa looked fine, but he would choke on his food and he was very weak. When he would breath we could here a gurgli…

I Dare You Giveaway Winner

Congratulations Victoria!

Being that I already have your address, I will go ahead and contact the Isabella Morganthal.  You should have "I Dare You" soon :)

To my readers:
Keep your eyes out for the following posts: When We Ice Skate A room with a view Dear Little Me

Engagement : depicting Christ and the church

I want to apologize for the delay in getting this portion the mini-series up.  Being that life seems to have slowed down (a tad), I should be finishing up the series next week (Lord-willing).

Okay, we've talked about following:

Guy/girl friendships  – how we should strive to keep them closely casual.  We also talked about needing to find the middle ground, and the importance of giving the friendship to God.

Courtship  – how it's a form of “commitment” and shouldn't be taken lightly.  How it should be set apart from the dating scene, and treated with the attitude of seriousness + responsibility.

Prayer & Purity - how it's important to keep our hearts pure, not just in our friendships with young men, but also in our courtship.  How we shouldn't treat courtship like dating.  Instead we are to treat courtship like the set apart, Christ-honoring relationship it should be.  How we should allow our courtship to reflect the love we and the gentleman have for Christ.

So let&…

Review + giveaway for "I Dare You" by Isabella Morganthal

Today I am so excited to share with you a review on Isabella Morganthal's book "I Dare You" (yes dear readers, there will be a giveaway as well lol).

I was very grateful that she let me review her book!!

I heard about it from my dear friend Chloe and from Rhey. And after I learned that it was on stopping human trafficking, I knew it was something that I wanted to review.

I absolutely love this book!  I'm a big fan of "Do Hard Things" and "Start Here" by Alex and Brett Harris, so when Isabella presented her readers with challenges, I fell in love with the book even more!

Isabella does an amazing job presenting the importance of becoming aware whether something is fair trade or not, doing your part in not supporting companies who aren't, etc.
Her book is overflowing with Scripture and wisdom - I was very impressed.  It's not everyday you read a book written by a young person and have it overflowing with knowledge, Scripture, wisdom, and much more…
