I’m at it again! Every few weeks I dive into the pool of self-disclosure and pure entertainment that is Ask Away Friday. This link-up party was started less than a year ago by Penny Chevalley at The Real Housewife of Caroline County, and it has really taken off.
Ask Away Friday is a question-and-answer swap in which two bloggers give each other 10 questions to answer in a post on a Friday, with the intention of getting to know each other better and giving their readers a deeper look at their personalities and quirks.
Along with Penny, the co-hosts of Ask Away Friday are Tiffany at Mrs. Tee: Love, Life and Laughter (with whom I did my first Ask Away Friday post), Amber at The Bold Fab Mom, and Stacey at This Momma’s Ramblings.
Lisi is a devoted Christian and a veteran blogger since 2008. This writer and poet has as her blogging goal encouraging and inspiring her readers, and she definitely delivers! I’m so glad to have made Lisi’s acquaintance, and I know you will, too, when you go over to her blog to check out her answers to my questions.
Here we go!
1.Your blog is entitled “Embrace The Struggle.” What do you find most surprising about embracing the struggles you’ve experienced?
What has surprised me the most is how embracing my struggles has changed me for the better. I’ve grown to accept and make peace with situations that would have driven me crazy before. I’ve become more resilient, tolerant, flexible, and empathetic.
2. If you could meet one person you haven’t met yet, who would this be and why?
I think I’d like to meet Oprah Winfrey. I think her life story is very uplifting, and chatting with her would bring about many “Aha!” moments for me.
3. What is the one item you feel that you couldn’t live without?
Water. We’re very delusional about how vital water is to our well being. We could go for days without food, but without water? Not so much!
4. On your Bucket List of items to accomplish, what is the one thing that remains there?
I still want to go to Alaska on a cruise. I am going to get there!
5. Do you prefer spicy foods or non-spicy?
Non-spicy, please. The hot stuff does a number on my gastrointestinal system.
6. What is/are your favorite TV Show(s)?
Right now, the only show I look at is The Haves and The Have Nots. I used to love The Mentalist, the original CSI (until it got too gory), Joan of Arcadia, Reunion, and Law and Order SVU.
7. Are you a sports fan? If so, which sport(s)?
No, dear, not a sports fan.
8. What is the last book you read? Would you recommend it to others?
Being Jesus in Nashville by Jim Palmer. Yes I would definitely recommend it. Jim takes us on a journey in which he turns upside down the Christian phrase “What Would Jesus Do (WWJD)?” It made me rethink how living as a Christian ought to be.
9. Where do you see yourself a year from now?
A year from now I hope to have started taking classes toward certification as a health coach.
10. What is a quote that has impacted you and your journey?
“God is faithful always, and in all ways.” It’s the tagline in my e-mail signature, and I came up with it a few years ago. As I looked at how God has been there, regardless of what was going on in my life, I came to the conclusion that He was always faithful, but also faithful in all ways. Who could ask for anything more?
