The Random Words Challenge!

A thanks to talented writer Emily McConnell from her blog The Imaginary World of Emily McConnell for nominating me! (Check out her blog! As you learn about her, you will also be blessed by the things that she shares.) So, the way this works is:

1) Paste the random words picture onto your blog post. (see right)
2) Leave a new list of questions (or just pass on the question list you answered) and tag a few people of your random choice (and say why you tagged them, if you have time!) (Be original and nonsensical in your question-creativity—make the blogging world a cheerful place)
3) Write down three facts about you and make one of them WRONG. Let your commenters guess in the comments which one is wrong (and tell them in the comments after a while)
4) Answer the questions of the person who tagged you—make it all super random and interesting
 I am going to change up the order a bit but it will all get done! First, here are three facts about me and one of them is wrong! Try to guess which is wrong and give me your answer in the comments. Soon, I will let you know which is wrong!

1) I have my own laptop.
2) My family has a total of twelve pets.
3) I have watched the movie Soul Surfer. 

Here are the answers to the questions I was asked by Emily:
1) Given the choice between writing historical fiction or contemporary, what would you choose?
I'm not sure, I just enjoy to write! At the moment, I am writing contemporary.

2) You’ve been sent to a foreign land as a diplomat and you don’t speak the language. You’re supposed to be talking peace talks with this country. What do you do?
I would get an interpreter that I trust. That's pretty safe!

3) Surprise! You’ve been assigned to be the General of an army and you’re supposed to be planning a surprise attack on the enemy. What are you going to do and will your plan succeed?
(squeaked out) A GENERAL! Well, if I must, I suppose that I would pray and God would give me wisdom to lead the army. With His help, yes, we would succeed!

4) Would you prefer getting married to a guy who is fairly good and will probably grow more through marriage or would you wait until you’re thirty-nine to marry the perfect man for you?
I will let God guide me and see where I end up! It would be nice not to wait until I'm thirty-nine, but my Dad would probably be happy if I did! If the right one hasn't come along until then, then I'll wait.

5) Indiana Jones just asked you to come and help him save the world. What are you packing for the trip?
Tons of excitement, energy, and adventure! (Does that fit in a suitcase?) I would be sure to bring bandages, (Indiana Jones might get hurt sometime you know!) blankets, clothes, a gun, and ropes, food, and the Dummies Guide to Traveling with Indiana Jones!

6) You’ve been thrown back in time and discovered that T-rexes are vegetarians. How are you going to prove this to people in your time?
Can I bring one back with me?

7) Asked by your best friend to attend her formal tea party, you arrive to discover that she’s invited the presidents/rulers of the world. What would you talk about with them besides politics (because some are bound to get angry when the discussion turns to politics and you can’t talk about those)?
Oh my! Well, how about God and the Bible for starters and see where it goes from there!

8) The police force in your area has asked you to solve the crime of the missing purple giraffe. But you don’t like giraffes and this one has been known to be particularly rude. Are you going to help find him or not? (Bear in mind that he’s a stuffed giraffe who has a tendency to run off whenever he feels like it, and he very well could be on vacation somewhere)
I'd help. Yup. That's me!

Here are the list of those who I am nominating! (If you/your blog is not on the list, it is because I noted that you were already nominated once. If you aren't on the list and want to be, please leave a comment and I will edit the post and add you in it!)

Amy from Living in Faith and Fun.
Cara from Crazy About God.
Faith from Chosen Vessels. 

Emily, you nominated everyone who I would have nominated! haha!

And here are a few questions for my nominees (and anyone who wants to in the comments!) to answer! Emily, hopefully you don't mind but I used a few of the same questions!

1) What is your favorite animal and why?
2) Do you enjoy writing?
3) Why did you start a blog?
4) Would you prefer getting married to a guy who is fairly good and will probably grow more through marriage or would you wait until you’re thirty-nine to marry the perfect man for you?
5) What is your dream job and why?
6) What is your favorite sport and why?
7) Indiana Jones just asked you to come and help him save the world. What is your reaction and what are you packing for the trip?
8) Someone offers you an all-expense paid trip to Disney Land! How exited are you and what ride are you going to first? (If you've been there)
9) You can go out to eat any type of food you want! What will you be eating and at what restaurant?
10) Your mom want to surprise you and makes your favorite dish! What are you eating?

Hope you all enjoyed reading! I apologize if the font colors were acting strange. I'm not sure what is going on with them. Have a good day!


  1. The Idiots Guide to Traveling with Indiana Jones! Ahaha! That sounds like a wonderful thing to bring along...only you might not have a chance to read it. Maybe you should go through it before the adventure! ;)

    1. Ikr! Hahaha! Good idea...

      Do you think that you will be entering the writing challenge?

    2. No Bethany. It looks fun but I'm sorry to say that I don't have time right now! Hope you have many other entrees though!

    3. Ok. I'm the same way with many contests! It's so hard to find time for everything!

  2. I LOVED your answers! I'm smiling over here and just having the greatest time reading them. Very clever how you answered the Indiana Jones one. I'm laughing. ;)

    2. Hey, Bethany. I have a question. For who I nominate, does their blog have to been through Blogger?

  5. I'm guessing number 1 is wrong!

  6. Number three? I really, REALLY enjoyed reading your answers! Lol! :D

    1. I look forward to reading your post and learning more about you!

  8. That looks like so much fun!! I'm guessing #1 is wrong.

  9. I'm guessing #1 is false,

  10. I'm guessing number 2 is false or maybe 1 I'm not sure...

    1. Maybe, maybe not...I'm not telling...yet! Thanks for checking out the blog!

  11. I'll guess that #2 is false ;)
    I loved reading your answers!! They were so fun! :D

  12. Bethany, when will you post the false one?

    1. Soon, but right now people are still giving me their guesses.

    2. Okay! Just wondering...;-)
