These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a swell day! 

I am planning to post every Monday and if I can, on Fridays as well. So lookout for posts then! 🙂

I have been blown away by the support and love you guys showed last week! Thank you all! You guys rock. 

 So you, my readers, can get to know me better, I plan to do a series of posts about me during these next few weeks. I’ll begin with 18 things about myself since I am 18. *shakes head in disbelief* Many of these things relate to content I plan to have on the blog. Thank you to those who helped me find the right ones to post about (you know who you are). 🙂

  1. Favorite animal: Kangaroos! They are so adorable. They hop. They can kickbox. (If you’ve never seen a video of kangaroos kick-boxing, please check it out!). 
  1. Favorite food: I declare that one of God’s greatest gifts is french fries. I am a die hard Chick-fil-A waffle fry fan. And when you add an Oreo milkshake into the equation…
  1. Favorite recipe to make: Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have made them one too many times. I can whip up a batch with my eyes closed.
  1. Favorite season: I am a part of the lonely few who really see the beauty in winter. I’ll leave it at that.
  1. Favorite hobby: Reading! I will never ever get enough of leafing through ink printed on pieces of paper binded to make a rectangular object.
  1. Favorite flower: Marigolds! I am probably biased since they do so well in my garden. They are so eye-catching and smell heavenly. And they remind me of autumn!
  1. Favorite school subject: History. I was the kid who checked out a gazillion presidential books and read a ton of random biographies. The kid who wanted to spend more time on the Civil War in history class. The kid who found museums exciting and tried to read everything in them. The story of the world never gets old. 
  1. Favorite Bible verse: 2 Corinthians 12: 9-10 ~ “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 
  1. Favorite music genre: I really like Christmas music (is that even a genre?). I would say that is the most consistent type of music I have listened to over the years. I definitely listen to much more than Christmas music, but I always have a hard time deciding on a favorite.
  1. Favorite song: Be Thou My Vision. This is such a beautiful hymn. A great reminder that Jesus is my all in all. Listen here (This is one of my favorite versions).
  1. Favorite book: I used to have such a hard time with this question. I fall in love with books on a weekly basis (This past week it was Agatha Christie’s masterful murder mystery: And Then There Were None. You will not believe the suspense she created!). If someone dared to ask me I would list about 5 different books and assure the inquirer 10 times I just couldn’t pick. But that was before Little Women. Louisa May Alcott’s story of the four March sisters completely blew me away. During my first read, I literally could not put it down. For those few days, all I wanted to do was enter the world of Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy March and ignore all my other obligations. It made me laugh and cry. It made me want to throw it across the room and shout for joy. Alcott built a fantastic story of sisterhood and created such strong characters (what would the world be like without Jo March!). 
  1. Favorite author: C.S. Lewis. He has given us lessons in courage from a mouse in The Chronicles of Narnia to humorous letters between demons in The Screwtape Letters to thoughtful, eloquent words on theology in Mere Christianity. What a legacy this man left on humanity. 
  1. Favorite poet: A mix of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Langston Hughes, and Robert Louis Stevenson.

  1. Favorite quote: I literally have a journal dedicated to quotes. So this is a very hard decision! I love the Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit quote on my home page ;). But I also love, “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr. and, “Children are not a distraction from the more important work, they are the most important work.” ~ C.S. Lewis. And (I promise this is the last one), “The Christ of the galaxies is the Christ of your Mondays.” ~ Max Lucado. Oh and a new favorite (promise broken) of mine, “Lord beer me strength.” ~ Jim Halpert from The Office. Sometimes people say I’m indecisive…I don’t know where they get that from!
  1. Favorite movie: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. What. A. Movie. Eloquent screenplay, serious character development (despite there being over a dozen to keep track of), amazing battle scenes, carefully woven consistent themes, and wonderful portrayals of courage, friendship, valor, and persistence. This finale to The Lord of the Rings trilogy is a masterpiece.
  1. Favorite musical: A mix of The Sound of Music, The Fiddler on the Roof, and Hamilton
  1. Favorite superhero: The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. Gotham’s Hero. Batman.
  1. Favorite Star Wars movie: Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back 

But if I had to pick the best thing about me, it would be that Jesus Christ saved me from my sins, and I am set free because of Him!

If there was one of my favorites I did not cover that you would like to know, ask me in the comments below or tell me some of your favorites! And don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and Pinterest!
