Leibster Award: 2015 (Part 2)

In my last post I mentioned that I had received the Leibster Award twice and I answered the questions from Jesseca Dawn. Here is the second set of questions from Blessing Counter with Counting Your Blessings One by One. Thanks, Blessing Counter!

Just as a refresher . . .

The Rules are:
1) Link to the blogger that nominated you.
2) Answer the 11 new questions.
3) Nominate other bloggers. (As many or as few as you like)
4) Create 11 new questions for them to answer
5) Notify the new nominees of their award.

Now for responses to the questions!
1. Do you find that you read more fiction or non-fiction books? 
Fiction. Mostly horse stories and mysteries.
2. Skirts or pants?
Pants! Jeans or sweatpants to be specific. ;-)
3. What is your dream pet? Or do you not like animals in general?
I loove all animals! (Except for snakes, spiders, and the like) Dream pet—a horse!
4. What is your favorite Bible verse?
John 3:16 never becomes old. :-) Proverbs 3:5-6 also produce for me both a challenge and a comfort.
5. Who in your family do you look like the most?
My Dad mostly. Or at least that is what people say . . .
6. If given the chance, who is the one person that you would want to meet? 
Umm . . . can I go back in time to meet a person? If so, Jesus. If not then, well probably someone that has something to do with horses. ;-)
7. Say some of your siblings were fighting, either by words or physically. Would you watch them and cheer for your favorite, be a peacemaker, or ignore them and walk away?
Well, when I was born, my parents felt that I was to be both a leader and a peacemaker. I have seen both those qualities in me and so I would be a peacemaker for sure!
8. Do you prefer singing or playing an instrument?
Yikes, I don't sing well and I don't play any instruments.
9. Who is your favourite singer/band? 
I don't really have one but I like For All Seasons (formerly Reveal), the Advance, Casting Crowns, the Newsboys . . . you can check out my profile for a complete list.
10. What do you spend the most time doing/ What do you wish you spent the most time doing?
Well, most of my time is spent in school but I wish that I could spend all day out with horses, reading, writing, blogging, etc. (Again, my profile has a more complete list of my hobbies.)
11. What characteristic do you not have that you wish you had or are trying to learn?
I am working hard on being generous, not as selfish. Also I am trying to not take control of things all the time.
Okay, that was fun! Now for those who I am nominating:
Sarrah from Girls and God.
Amy from Living in Faith and Fun!
Cara from Faithful God Girls.
Marci from Two God Crazy Gals! 
Kelpie from C'est La Vie.

Here are the questions for my nominees to answer...have fun!
1. What is your favorite school subject? Least favorite?
2. What is your favorite pastime?
3. At what age did you receive Christ? (If you have)
4. What is your ideal vacation spot?
5. Who is your favorite author/series/book?
6.  What is your favorite food? Least favorite?
7. If you were given a million dollars, what would you do with it? (Honestly now . . . not what you think would be good but what would YOU do?)
8. What is your favorite joke?
9. Who is your favorite Bible character and story?
10. Do you enjoy writing? Have you published anything?
11. Briefly share of an exciting adventure that you have had. ;-)

I hope that you enjoyed reading my answers and getting to know more about me. Maybe you can connect with some of the other bloggers that I nominated as well as Blessing Counter!

I just changed the blog look so be sure to check it out and give me your feedback! The biggest picture in the collage is of my family and I on a trail ride (I am on the last horse). The picture in the top-right is of my sister with out new horse, Baylie. The bottom-left picture (not the big one) is of Dream and me one burn day out doing school by the fire; the top-left picture is of me and Dream one day after church; and the bottom-right is of my boots in the snow up at Shaver Lake where my family like to vacation. Enjoy!


  1. Great job with your answers, Bethany! I enjoyed reading them!
    By the way, nice new profile picture! Is that the horse(s) that you hinted at having in your first post on the Liebster Award? :)

    1. Thank you! Wow, how did you already see my new pic! I just put it up! Lol. Anyways, no. That is not the new one but I will try (like I mentioned) to do a post about the new one! Her name is Baylie. 🐴🐎

  2. I loved reading your answers to both sets of questions. However, I totally disagree with your answer to number 5 in this set. Honey-chile, y'all are the spittin' image (ewwww!) of yer ma!

    1. LOL! I'm glad that you enjoyed reading, Amy!

  3. Thank you for the nomination Bethany! I'll try and do the related post soon.

    I like your new blog look. Much more sunny and bright feeling!

    1. Ok! Thanks for reading and being willing to do the post!

      Yes, I am trying to change it out each season but this one may end up staying through the end of summer . . . .

  4. Who recieved the Leibster award?
