Purposeful pages is a monthly link-up designed to unite bloggers on answering questions about life, blogging, the Bible, writing, and books.
- What book of the Bible has taught you the most this month?
It reminds me of when I had lost my Bible plan paper for months and months and it was hidden in my Bible all along. How embarrassing!
I did read some of the smaller NT books recently and really liked these three verses:
Ephesians 5:16 Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.
Philippians 1:30: We are in this struggle together. You have seen my struggle in the past, and you know that I am still in the midst of it.
Phiplipians 3:8. Yes, everything else is worthless when compared with the infinite value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have discarded everything else, counting it all as garbage, so that I could gain Christ.
- How would you react if you were in the positions of either Esther, if you’re a girl, or Daniel, if you’re a guy?
Well I think I would freak out, lol. There are just certain people who always seem "unapproachable," whether with the gospel or just in general.
But then again, does the actual crisis matter, or do we have things "just like" what Esther and Daniel faced a long time ago that we faced too?
- If you could have a book character for a sibling, who would it be, and what makes you two alike?
Oooh, this is an interesting question and I havent ever associated anyone with a sibling before.
A very long time ago, I did read a book called Candle in the Darkness there was a man in his sixties named Eli who really stood out. Eli happens to be my favorite guy's name as well. If he could be my brother, thats who I would probably choose.
Let me tell you 5 facts about Eli:
- He loved Jesus a lot
- He was nice
- He had the best advice.
- He was not afraid to take risks for what was important to him.
- He didnt judge people who were different
- He had a policy that what is popular is not always right
Also, throughout the story he helped the main character, Caroline Fletcher, grow into a fantastic abolitionist.
You should read the book!
- How would your main character spend his or her Friday night? If you’re not a novelist, answer: How would you most likely spend your Friday night?
I think that I am going to answer both.
I had been writing a book like 3-4 years ago about a girl named Emma. Emma would spend her Friday nights with her little siblings if she was home or at a barn singing/dance if she was at work.
She probably would put on a happy face around others but then kinda crumple as the night closed.
Usually my Friday nights are spent on the internet, maybe reading a book, or doing homework. Yesterday, por ejemplo, I did Spanish, read Perks finally, and I had wanted to do some ACT prep but fell asleep pretty early.
- What are the top three books you’re just dying to read?
Feel free to recommend some in the comments.
- Can you briefly share the story behind your blog’s name?
Sure! My blog username is majesticgoldenrose.
I live on Majestic Drive, my last name is Gold, and my middle name is Rose.
Squish it all together and you get majesticgoldenrose.
- What do you consider to be your blog’s “branding,” or signature? What sets your blog or social media platform apart from others?
I think I do more reviews than others, but I also have a very unique problem where I try to write for teens but most of the audience I get is adult women.
I also host a blog chain, The Golden Gang, which has a link in the header. New prompts come out every 1st and 15th.
I havent been very social lately but many of my posts online are religious.
- If you could go on a road trip of your dreams, where would you go and who would you spend time with?
First I want to go to Costa Rica and spend some time with mi mama tica. Then I want to let my friend spend a day with her German family.
Then I want to fly (as in I am the one flying) us on a mission somewhere and bring people clean water and food. I wouldnt want to go with my padres, and tbh might not even talk to them when I was gone.
For a trip just in the states, I wouldnt mind a 30 day road trip for Amazon FBA, alone or with my friend.
- Using five words or less, tell a story.
We all want to be protected from the monsters.
^Apparently my math skills are a little rough today. Sorry about that.
