Liebster Award

Monday, April 6, 2015

Hi guys! So, this past week, I was nominated for a Liebster Award by Ashley over at Grace Mountain Diaries. I'd like to give a big "thank you" to her for the nomination. It truly made my day :)
The Liebster award is to help blogs with less than 200 followers get noticed and develop their readership. This is a "pay it forward" type award, so I am nominating a few people too (listed further down in this post).


Part of being nominated is answering a few questions. These are the questions that Ashley picked for me, along with my answers.
  1. How did you decide on the title of your blog, and what is it about? The title of my blog comes from two places: Originally, it comes from Exodus 19:5:
     
    Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine.
    It also comes from my favorite book series, The Christy Miller Series. This Christian, youth series has a character that calls herself a Peculiar Treasure for God. 
    As a Christian, I am called to stand out from the crowd and be peculiar in their eyes, because of the way I live; as someone who is treasured by God.
    Not to mention that I am also just very
    peculiar anyway :p
  2. Where does your blogging inspiration come from?
    My blogging inspiration....hmmm. I'd say my inspiration comes from seeing people that I know have potential to change the world, yet they melt themselves away in a furnace of terrible decisions. I desire for my words to change the way those people view life.
  3. Can you give 11 random facts about yourself?
    1. I have been married for a little over 1 year
    2. I used to play basketball in high school
    3. I am a dog-mom to three awesome rescues
    4. My favorite fruit is watermelon
    5. I am a carnivore
    6. I've wanted to be a writer since 7th grade
    7. I sing country and gospel better than anything else
    8. I love the Jonas Brothers
    9. Bones is my favorite show
    10. I want to get a purebred Irish Wolfhound puppy
    11. I grew up at the beach
  4. What was your biggest accomplishment of 2014?
    Getting married to my awesome, godly man :)
  5. What is it you love most about blogging?
    I have the freedom to share the gospel, without being confined to one topic or style of writing.
  6. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be?
    1. To not battle so heavily with the lies of Satan, and know the voice of God much more clearly.
    2. To live within 30 minutes of everyone I love.
    3. To eat everything I desire and still be thin and in shape.
  7. What is one country in the world you would like to visit?
    Italy
    Why? I want to experience truly authentic Italian food and personality.
  8. What are you currently watching or reading?
    I am currently watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and reading Inkheart.
  9. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    Freeport, Bahamas. But only if all my family lived there too. No mama, no Bahamas ;)
  10. What is something you do when you need to take time for yourself?
    I take a chamomile salt bath, look at magazines, and then watch Bones or Phineas and Ferb.
  11. Where do you see yourself in five years time?
    I see myself blogging professionally from home, while my husband works as a college professor. I also see us more heavily discussing the idea of having kids or going into ministry full-time.
    I also like to think I see Wolfhound puppies (yes, plural) ;)
Now that I have answered all of the questions, I'd like to pay it forward and nominate a few blogs that I enjoy.

  1. Congratulations on your award and I hope it helps you to grow your blog. I came here from a comment you left on my blog, so this was a great first post for me to read! My daughter keeps telling me I've got to read the Inkheart series, too.
