15 Questions

I got a phone call this morning from the Bracknell Standard asking me to answer the following 15 questions for a feature in this weeks paper. I'm not going to give you my answers until after the paper comes out, but would be interested to hear what you would have said. If you do it why not post your answers as a comment on the blog or on facebook - I'd be fascinated to read some answers.

Don't forget to be inviting people to The Vigil - it's going to be brilliant. I've also been working on my Sunday preach today on The Verdict - that's looking good too!

1. What is your favourite food?
Bangers & Mash with gravy and sprouts but it has to be creamy mash with no lumps & proper sausages (plenty of meat rather than gristle & fat).

2. What is your favourite holiday destination?
Washington DC - loved my trip there last year...the culture, so much to see & do, Ebenezers, everything! Can't wait to go back.

3. What was the last book you read?
Feminine Appeal: Seven Virtues of a Godly wife & mother by Carolyn Mahaney - complete surprise to be reading it but loved every part of it. Loved learning.

4. What is your favourite TV programme?
CSI:New York - Gary Sinise...nuff said :0)

A cat called Tigger

6. What is your favourite film?
50 First Dates / Star Trek / Marley & Me / Wolverine

7. What painting or photo do you have on your wall or desk?
A picture given to me by a friend last year with a saying in it 'Be proud of how far you've come and have faith in how far you can go'. Means heaps.

8. Who would your ideal dinner guests be?
Gary Sinise, Mark Batterson, Anne Jackson, Winston Churchill, Grandad Spinks, Lizzie Martin (my sister) & Holly Wagner with accompanying music played by Alicia Keys. So many questions to ask each one and so much wisdom to take in.

9. What car do you drive?
Vauxhall Agila - gets me from A to B and is great for moving home! :0)

10. What is your biggest regret?
I don't have regrets. Life is too short. I do wish that I'd worked through some of the stuff I've faced this last year sooner but everything that has happened in life is part of my story & will be used to help others, so I don't regret it.

11. What makes you smile?
My nephews. I just have to think about them and I smile :0)

12. What was your first job?
Paper girl. First real job - apprentice chef at a 4 star hotel in Newcastle.

13. What do you like about Bracknell Forest?
I've not thought about this much...but I love that I don't have to go far to find lovely places to walk.

14. If you won the National Lottery, what would you do?
Set up my family with their own homes, clear any debts of the people I care about, set up the business, set up the home, put money into the church to enable it to expand....but none of that will happen because of winning the lottery...I think you need to buy a ticket to be in with a chance! :0)

15. If you could be asked one question what would it be and what would you answer?
Q: With everything that's happened in your life, what keeps you going?
A: An incredibly deep faith in God. In spite of everything, there is and always has been a deep seated knowledge that God is there...even when I made/make bad choices. Simply put, I don't know where I'd be without Him.
