  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers.
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  5. Notify your nominees once you’ve uploaded your post.


Jofina’s Questions to me:

1. What special talent do you have?

I think listening would be my ‘special talent.’

2. When did you start blogging? 

I tried to start several years ago, but I finally began to blog in earnest about a year or so ago.

3. One thing you learn from blogging?

In the beginning, I thought I had to make my blog into something specific. Over time, I learned that is not always the case. I learned the importance of, and have tried to let it develop over time rather than trying to force a particular format. This seems to be working well.

4. What is your profession?

By training, I am a counselor. I have a Master of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology. As an individual, I have developed many areas throughout my life. I have worked in varied positions and the combination has made me who I am today.

5. What are you thankful for?

I am thankful for each new day and all that each holds. These are blessings from God.

6. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Five years from now, I will be a published author. I am currently working on one or more books of poetry. (I say, or more, because I am beginning to believe I need to separate them into related categories and publish smaller collections instead of one larger.) I am also working on an historical fiction novel. I have been researching it for about five years now. I knew what I needed to write from the beginning. However the plot and character arcs are finally falling into place in coherent linear from. So, while I still need to complete some more research, I have begun writing it, as well.

7. One of your favourite quote?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

Philippians 4:13 — Holy Bible (NKJV)

8. Something new you wanna try?

I have a goal of learning some new languages. My research for the novel I am writing and for essays has required much of my time for the last several years. I am to the point now I am planning to begin those efforts again. To begin, I wish to learn Greek, Spanish and French.

9.What’s the thing you like most about yourself?

I am able to understand the varied nuances that form a unique individual within each person I meet. No two are alike. I do not expect them to be alike, and I do not strive to push my beliefs upon others. I accept each as the unique individual creation God has made.

10.What 3 words describe you the best?

Spiritual — Loving — Creative

11.One of your favourite film and why?

“Ghost” — because it presents a husband and wife who love and respect each other — even with the quirks.

I believe family is a gift from God and should be treated as such. I love writing with a broad array of intent and purpose. I have written poetry virtually all my life, and much nonfiction in academia. My expanded efforts in all areas have finally taken off in retirement. I have much to accomplish now that I have the time. Other hobbies are painting, researching ancestry and myriad topics for my writing, knitting, crocheting, cooking -- always trying new recipes and always cooking for my health. I have many other hobbies, but these seem to dominate most of my time. Oh, did I mention I am the mother of three grown children and grandmother of seven. I have been blessed immensely and am the happier for it.

      1. I find like my tag line……Writing alongside the LORD, that HE allows me to do just that. To see how HE works in my life and those around me. To witness and then to be able to write about it in the blog world. I am incredibly thankful for all the other bloggers out there writing for the LORD too. To be a part of this community humbles me.

      2. Me too! Me too. I am currently writing a thank you to you and another blogger who I have known for a while. So look for the post. Honestly I had 3 nominations all at once and so I decided that just a simple thank you and why was best. I get overwhelmed with all of them. But will list you and her on my blog at least and give you the sweet credit you both deserve for even thinking of me. Bless your heart!
