She asked…

What inspired you to start your blog?
I was feeling restless and like my life had no meaning. I realized it did, but my husband told me he thought I should start a blog because he thought I was a good writer and it would give me something to do in my downtime. I just wanted a place to write where I could be myself, tell my stories and offer my words in hopes that I would be able to inspire someone who might have shared the same struggles as I have.
Where do you find your inspiration to do what you do?
I’m a stay-at-home mom, my kids and my husband keep me inspired to be the best wife and mom I can be. Spiritually, my inspiration comes from my faith, God made me in His image and knowing that I am His masterpiece and He has plans inspires me to live, to make each day matter, even when life seems mundane because it’s all a part of the bigger picture. Everyday is another part of the journey, whether you travel one foot or one mile.
Name five favorite things.(Food,Drink,Place,Song,Movie)
Food is hard cuz I really, really like to eat. I’d have to go with a big, juicy medium rare porterhouse steak. Drink is Coke. Place is with my family and friends. Song right now is anything by Sam Smith. My favorite movie ever is, I’ll go with the first one that pops in my head, My Father the Hero.
What would be the one quote you live by(also by whom)?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Luke 6:13
What is your most favorite living creature?
Describe yourself in three words(don’t use your blog name,please)
Loving, understanding, sensitive
Name three things you can’t live without.
Besides, my family and the obvious, there is nothing I technically can’t live without, but three things I wouldn’t want to live without would be, my sight, my hearing and the ability to talk (or if you were wanting a more materialistic answer, Coke, my cell phone and tweezers).
