Your Turn!

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Every year I check out readers' preferences on my blog (and in candy bars) with a survey.  The next annual survey is coming up in only a couple months.  But in the mean time, I've decided to have a little fun with an Ask Me Anything post!  (Since I always love joining in on Martha's Q & A series!)
So, feel free to ask any questions you wish, either in a comment or (if you prefer to ask anonymously) in the form below.  I will attempt to answer in upcoming blog posts.  Ask anything that comes to mind...serious or trivial.  Have fun!

  1. Oooh, looks fun! What made you decide to start this blog? Aside from the Bible, what's your favorite book?

  2. I think you are brave! I'm too shy! What makes you nervous and how do you conquer your fears?

    1. Thanks for your question, Christine! I answered it here.

  3. What's your most embarrassing moment?

    1. A fun question! Thanks for asking, Kathleen. I answered it here.

  4. Your hair is so beautiful. Do you often get compliments on it?

  5. What made you so passionate about politics?

  6. You are brave to let us ask you anything. Though I guess you don't have to answer. : )
    Here's my question.
    If you were to die tomorrow, do you know for sure you would go to heaven?
    If yes, how do you know?

  7. What room of the house is it most important for you to have clean?

  8. OK - so, here we go 'would you rather spend the afternoon with dull believers, or interesting atheists?'

    You did say we could ask anything!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  9. Oh, this will be fun! I'm so happy you're doing this. It's gotten late and I'm shutting down so we can watch a movie...but I'll be back tomorrow with questions!

    1. Thanks for asking so many fascinating questions, Martha!

  10. If you could travel any where, where would you go and why?

  11. I'm back! I came up with a whole bunch of questions that I hope you find interesting. And I also hope you don't mind answering so many, Bethany! These blog posts are always enjoyable, and a wonderful way to get to know a little more about blogging friends. So here goes...

    - What three personality traits do you admire in people?
    - What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
    - If you could go back in time, what period would you visit?
    - What is one of your favourite words?
    - What was the last thing that made you laugh?
    - Have you ever broken a bone?
    - What three words best describe you?
    - If your house was on fire (loved ones and pets are safe) and you had just enough time to run in and grab one item, what would it be?
    - What was your favourite subject in school?
    - What do you see (or would like to see) in your future?

    1. It was fun answering your questions, Martha!

      I answered the questions about most admired personality traits, the last thing that made me laugh, and three words that describe me in Answers: A Confession of Humanity.

      And I answered about whether I'd ever broken a bone and what I'd like my future to hold at Answers: Life and Death.

  12. Hi Bethany, thank you for allowing us to ask you questions. I look forward to reading your answers.
    Do you know of any good Christian family movies that are appropriate enough for a twelve year old and up? (Not animated ones)
    What are some really good Christian books you'd recommend for teens?
    What is your biggest fear? Do you play any instruments? Do you have any pets? If so, can you show some pictures? :) How many acres do you have? Do you have a garden? Did you go to college? Do you have a job? If so, where do you work? What is your normal everyday schedule?

  19. Hi Bethany! This looks like fun♥ What inspires your writing?

  20. hi bethany, i have always wondered how old you are?? only because you seem so passionate about subjects most young people aren't concerned with. you look very young!!!

    i hope this wasn't rude, it's not meant to be, just something i have always wondered!!

    1. Not at all! I will take it as a compliment. Thanks for asking. I answered at Answers: Life and Death.

  21. Oh, these posts are just so much fun!
    I didn't quite take the time to read through all the comments, so I apologize if my question is a double.
    But, would you mind sharing your testimony?

    Many blessings to you, dear Bethany!

  22. I don't know if I did it right so I'll post my question here as well.

    Do you like eating crackers and if so, what's the best cracker you ever ate?

    Thanks. That was fun to ask.

  23. Playing catch up from blog break - still thought I'd try to throw a few at you:

    *if you could go anywhere in the world - where would you go & why?

    *if you could have lunch with anyone (living or dead) whom would it be & why?

  24. Hi Bethany, despite of you buy or not lottery tickets, what would you do if you win the lottery? And, which is, in your opinion, one of the most beautiful States in the USA?
