Now for the questions!!!!! :DD



1. What was the first song you've ever heard by 6?
I can't remember, maybe Its the Thought That Counts.

2. What's your favorite song of 8?
The Chipmunk Christmas song

3. What kind of impact has 1 left on your life?
Casting Crowns songs always challenge me to think about how I'm living and how I can better serve God.


4. What's your favorite lyric of 5's?
None of the Star Wars songs have lyrics. =(


5. How many times have you seen 4 live?
Never.  Disney Soundtracks don't really perform.  =)

6. What's your favorite song of 7?
The Government Can! =D

7. Is there any song of 3 that makes you sad?
Moriah.  It's the theme song for a character who dies tragically. =(


8. What's your favorite song by 9?
I honestly can't say.  I really liked his song, Once Upon a River.
9. How did you first get into 2?
One morning at church someone played the piano and sang Brandon Heath's song, Give Me Your Eyes


10. How did you first get into 3?
We bought the music book for the Kingdom Series when we met Chuck Black at a convention. After listening to the CD that came with it, me and my siblings were hooked! =D

11. What's your favorite song by 4?
I See the Light, from Tangled.

12. How many times have you seen 9 live?
Sometimes our pastor sings for us at church, I think he's done it 3 times. 

13. What is a good memory concerning 10?
Last time we went on vacation we got to sing Ruthie's song, I'm That Type of Girl with her.  It was the first time I had seen her since I was a baby, so it was really great to her her sing a song I'd been hearing all my life. =)


14. Are there any songs of 8 that make you sad?
Um, nope.  Alvin and the Chipmunks is usually pretty happy and upbeat. =D
15. What is your favorite song of 1's?
Who Am I, Voice of Truth, East to West, and Somewhere in the Middle.  =)  I love Casting Crowns!


16. How did you become a fan of 10?
My aunt and Ruthie were roommates in college and whenever she does a new CD Ruthie usually sends it to us. :)  I've been listening to her music pretty-much all my life. 





That was fun!  I'm not sure who's been tagged and who hasn't, so if you haven't done this challenge yet, consider yourself tagged. =)




Bible Drill


That's my trusty Bible Drill Bible!  I've had it for 3 years! =D


I LOVE Bible Drill!  It's a really fun way to hide God's word in our hearts. =)  This is my 3rd year drilling.
Some of you might wonder how Bible Drill works.  I will do my best to explain, and show an example of what we have to learn.  At Bible Drill we have a pamphlet of verses and question and answers that we have to learn.  An example of a question would be Who Knows My Heart?  The answer is Psalms 139:23-24.  That's all we have to know for the questions. =)  We have to be able to look up the reference within 8 seconds.  It's not as hard as it sounds.  This is what we have to learn on the pamphlet.

I'm really excited about tomorrow, it's the State Competition. 
The competitions work like this(There are 25 calls total, I think):


Church Drill - 12 mistakes or less to move on.


Associational Drill - 8 mistakes or less to move on.


State Drill:
2 mistakes or less - Superior and move on to Quick Drill


6-Second Quick Drill:
2 mistakes or less - move on to big statewide competition. I did it the first year, but it's too competitive for my enjoyment, and kinda far for us to drive. 


Anyway, I'm really excited about tomorrow, because I enjoy drilling, and after we drill we get to play tag at the park(weather permitting), then go to The Incredible Pizza Company!  The IPC is soooo awesome!  It's like Chuck-E-Cheeses, but 10,000 times better!  It's a Christian place with a pizza buffet, go carts, 3-D motion rides, bumper cars, and all kinds of fun games like you'd find at Chuck-E-Cheeses!  I'm super excited, if you haven't guessed. LOL!

Anyway... moving on. xD


I really want to get an awesome blog theme, but I can't ever find anything I like.  Is there anyone out there who would want to help me?

Sorry I haven't posted in so long.  Have an awesome day!

  1. Does it have to be KJV? I find that version a little hard to understand. XD

  2. I use KJV and NJKV mainly. I find that in the newest versions they actually CHANGE some of the meanings!!! I was shocked. I was looking at a NIV Bible and a KJV at the same time and they completely twisted the meaning of a certain verse in the NIV version from the KJV. But yeah, I still use NIV for certain things.

    But YES! Bible drills! I'm good at those when it's in the New Testiment section! I have them all memorized except for the Old Testiment section. ;P

  3. I've always wanted to do a Bible Drill, but never have. I agree about finding the KJV hard to understand.

    By blog layout, do you mean new background and everything? Because Qui would probably love to do yours! She just redid Amaranthine's blog. www.dandyblogdesigns.blogspot.com

  5. Thanks everyone!

    @Amaranthine - It's either KJV or NIV. The church I drill with uses KJV. =) I think I prefer King James over NIV.

    @Leia - I've noticed that too. =( It's pretty sad. I have 2 Bibles, one NIV and one KJV.
    Do you do Bible Drill? I actually find the Old Testament easier, everything is so close together in the New Testament. =)

    @Endor I hope you can do Bible Drill some day! =)

    Thanks for the link, I just placed an order! =D

    @Dutchess Satine - It really is! =D

    @Jedi~Chick - Thank you! I love Alvin and the Chipmunks, their songs are so cute! =)
