I was officially by tagged Elisha for the Bookish Bucket List tag! 😀 (Check out his post HERE!) Thank you for the nomination! 😀

  • Answer the questions asked by your nominator.
  • Create 10 new questions for your nominees.

Elisha’s Questions

1: Who are, in your opinion, the ten greatest writers in history?

Well, there are a lot, I’m not sure if I could pick out ten. That’s kinda overwhelming, haha!!

2: Have you written a book? If so, describe it in under 140 characters.

I’ve written a lot of short stories, but never a book – yet. 😉 

3: If you stand up from your desk, close your eyes, spin around three times, then open your eyes again, what is the first book you see?

The Shaping of a Christian Family by Elisabeth Elliot. 

4: What was the worst book you have ever read (mine was probably The Great Gatsby)?

I really don’t know. (I think I started reading the Great Gatsby though and read about 4 pages before putting it down. I don’t remember what it was about though. XD)

5: Are you currently working on a book?

Maybe…??? *evil laugh*

6: Who is your favorite modern-day writer?

Rebekah Jones, Maggie Joy and Malachi Cyr. They are all GREAT writers and friends! 😀 

7: Do you have a specific place for your reading? If so, describe it.

Like, a specific place to read books? Well, pretty much anywhere I happen to be. Usually on my bed or the couch.

8: Are Kindle EBooks superior to printed books?

No way! Yes, they’re cheaper, but a real book is waaay nicer. 

9: If I published a book on Amazon Self-Publishing, would you read it?

I might be interested in reading it, depending on what is was about. I probably wouldn’t have the money to buy it though, lol! 

10: Who is, in your opinion, the most underrated author currently writing today?

I don’t really know of a lot of current-day writers other than friends. Maybe Rebekah Jones?

Life as a Missionary Kid in Mexico

Standard

Hey guys! Hattush from Daughter of the Light interviewed me for a guest post on her blog. 😀 She asked a lot of great questions, especially about our family’s life and ministry here in Mexico. 🙂 Even though this was originally written for her blog, I thought I’d share it with you as well! 😀


 

  • Why did your family decide to go into missions?

 

Well, my mom’s parents were missionaries in Mexico when she was a girl, and my dad worked with my grandpa before he was married. My parents married in Mexico, and when I was 2 we moved to the States. My Dad wanted to get more training and church experience before going back to plant a church. And 4 and a half years ago, we did! 🙂 

pizap.com15641137665391

Marr family, January 2019

 

  • What’s one of the funniest things that happened to you in Mexico?

 

I honestly have no idea about this question.  Ok, one funny/embarrassing thing that happened to me… Once when we first moved here, I was buying tortillas and asked for “flour” tortillas, but instead of using the word for flour, I accidentally used the word for um….. Urine. XD The lady was laughing and laughing, and I never knew until I told Dad about it!

 

 

  • What was the hardest to adjust to?

 

  1. The lack of Christian fellowship. This is something I really took for granted when we lived in the US. 
  2. Language! Moving to a country where you know almost nothing of the language was pretty rough. Almost 5 years later, I’m not as fluent as I would have hoped, but at least I can communicate some. 

 

 

  • Do you miss the US?

 

Yes, I do, very much. However, it has gotten easier as the years have gone by. I’m really learning to trust God with where He has placed me. I still miss my friends a lot, but the Lord is teaching me to be content. 

 

 

  • What’s the hardest thing about being a missionary kid?

 

Maybe the fact that most of my relationships are online-based since most of my friends live in the US, or other parts of Mexico. 

Rosy (17)

 

  • What is the most rewarding?

 

Just being right where God has placed us. Also, I love seeing God working in other people’s lives. 

 

 

  • What are your favorite things to do when you want to relax? 😛

 

Definitely doing art! There’s almost never a time when I don’t have some project or another going on! Next to that, it would be reading.

 

  • What is your favorite time of year?

 

That’s a hard one. XD There are pros and cons to every time of year. I love the summer. However in the summer electricity and internet are out almost more than they’re on, because of the rainy season. In the winter, at least we have electricity, but it’s SO cold, and I can’t say I really love the cold. All in all, I guess I’d have to say Summer because I love rain and thunder, even with the lack of internet. 😉 

 

 

  • What is the climate like?

 

Well, I sort of touched on this in the last question. 😉 Spring is actually the hottest time of year, though it rarely even hits 100 degrees which is super nice, especially after living in Phoenix, Arizona! (Where it gets to 120…) XD Summer is fun because it rains a lot and everything gets super green, which I totally love.  Fall is just fall, and then in Winter it gets SUPER cold (at least for us, after living in AZ). It snows, although not much, and one of the sad things about Winter is that I always have to wear shoes… XD 

 

 

  • What is something you want to say to other missionary kids?

 

I know it may be hard, but don’t get discouraged! It will get easier. When I accepted living here and surrendered to God, I was a lot happier with my life. Even though it’s still hard sometimes, and I miss my friends, I’m happy. 

 

  • What’s a fun fact that not many people know about you? 😉

 

   My sister Gracie and I are less than a year apart, and we are the same age for 12 days! 😀

Thanks for those awesome questions, Hattush! ❤ I really enjoyed answering them. (Love you!)

Hope you guys enjoyed reading a little bit about our life here, as missionaries in Mexico! 🙂 😀

Songs for This Season

Hey, everyone! 😀

The last few weeks have pretty crazy. XD A lot of events have been canceled, including church all April, and many of us haven’t seen much of our friends in weeks. During this time, it’s important to remember that God is with us, no matter how alone we may feel. He is in total control, and nothing can happen without His knowledge. He is only good! ❤

Here are some songs that can comfort us during hard times, and remind us that God is still in control. 🙂 ❤
