Wow! I am going to have to go check how long it has been for me. I didn't think it could have been a year but I think I started before you. That just goes to show you how time flies!My question... What was your favorite sport/extracurricular activity in High School?Smiles!
October 7, 2008 7:52 PM


Jennifer,

In all honesty and not very proud I did not have any extra curricular activities that I did when I was in High School! Suffice it to say I was part of the "partying crowd"! Back then it was all about trying to fit in, and I was trying to fit in with the wrong people!

Thanks for the great questions!

Hey!!! Congrats girl. I have been blessed by reading your blog. My question is: How do you think you have changed because of blogging?
October 7, 2008 8:08 PM


Oh I like that one!! I am amazed at how many blogs I have gone to and the scripture they have posted was exactly what I needed in that moment! So many women have helped grow me into the more Christ centered woman I am today! Not that I don't have a long way to go, but God has used all of you to help me in my learning to WAIT on Him! For that I say a big THANK YOU!!!

Melissa said...
Happy blogiversary! I totally missed mine....I think it was middle of September or something....I'd like to know, what is your favorite thing to do with your family?
October 7, 2008 9:51 PM

Well there are two things really Camping and Hiking! We are also adding Canoeing and hopefully Kayaking! We love being outside together away from things! Great question Melissa!

Happy first blogaversary! Whoohoo! Isn't this bloggy community just amazing? I'm so glad you joined us.And hey, thanks for your coffee giveaway. Here's my question: Do you have a life verse? Is a there a Bible passage that keeps you going, year after year? Hugs!
October 8, 2008 12:47 AM


Why yes I do! There are actually several that help to remind me of God's love for me, but this one is the one I keep going to for a reminder of how he sees me! You see I have a problem with self worth and feeling down about myself at times! This passage jumped out at me - GOD DELIGHTS IN ME!!! And can you believe it's from Zephaniah!!!
Zephaniah 3:14-17
Sing, O Daughter of Zion;

shout aloud, O Israel!

Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,

O Daughter of Jerusalem!

15 The LORD has taken away your punishment,

he has turned back your enemy.

The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you;

never again will you fear any harm.

16 On that day they will say to Jerusalem,

"Do not fear, O Zion;

do not let your hands hang limp.

17 The LORD your God is with you,

he is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

he will quiet you with his love,

he will rejoice over you with singing."

WOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO! Congratulations on your blogoversary!!!I think one year of blogging is like 10 dog years or something like that. Hmmmm, so what question to ask you?Ok, what tasty treat are you selfish with? Is there an edible yummy that you won't share with your kids or hubby?
October 8, 2008 1:31 AM


Oh my goodness yes!!! It's my sister Kam's Carmel Corn!!! Those that have had it understand why! She makes a batch for me special for my birthday each year! I am very selfish with it!! Isn't that awful!!!!!

Diane said...
Congrats on a year in blogworld! I've enjoyed your posts - this allowed me to dig even deeper into the world of Kim! ;)Ok, "e-mom" kinda touched on my question but I'll change it just a little.What verse or verses from the Bible have majorly effected the way you live your life?
October 8, 2008 8:13 AM


Well there are alot of them but most recently it would be: Philippians 1:27a "Whatever happens, conduct yourself in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ"
Always at the forefront of my mind should be preserving his character and holiness which is reflected in what I do or say.

Cheri said...
Yeah- congrats on 1 year!!My question is:What would be your best advice for new parents?
October 8, 2008 8:21 AM


Best advice for new parents. hummm..... Entrust those little ones to the Lord everyday! Don't be so hard on yourself and them. Learn to relax, and realize everything does not have to happen at a certain time! They are all different, learn to work with their unique qualities. You will never have it figured out so trust the One who knows them and loves them more then you! Remember they are not yours, they are His and he has entrusted you with them, so he thinks alot of you! Also remember that they can teach you things too!

Miss*Suzanne said...
Congratulations!! Wooo Hoooo!!!!O.K...let's see, hmm... o.k. how about this?If you could write a letter to God, what would you ask Him and would any one answer change the direction of your life today?:)
October 8, 2008 8:53 AM


I guess this would be a somewhat funny question, but one I think of often! Why oh why did you make Men and Women so different in the S_X area! Why are they always needing it and we are always to tired or whatever! Would this change the direction of my life? Possibly, I'm not sure! But boy I sure want to know!!!!!

Tonya said...
Hi, Kimberly!Happy Blogiversary!HMMM... What to ask, what to ask???Oh, I know.. what's your favorite place to shop???


I guess my favorite place to shop for clothes would be Kohl's! I don't know if you have them in the south. I really love browsing through Christian Book Stores, especially Parable Books in Grandville! Oh the books I'd love to buy!!!!!

Cheryl said...
Hey Kim! You have really been a blessing for me. I love reading your comments on my blog! You are so sweet! My question.....What is your favorite post YOU have written and was it easy to write??? ooopps!! That is two questions huh?
October 8, 2008 6:18 PM

Hey Cheryl.

Good but very hard questions. It's hard to pick, but I would say the ones that are closest to my heart are ones that I wrote when the Holy Spirit revealed something to me. I looked back and found this one:

http://astonegatherer.blogspot.com/2008/01/snow-day.html

and this one:

http://astonegatherer.blogspot.com/2008/04/living-well-wednesday-mirrors.html

All posts that were truly inspired by God were easy to write. I just felt like I had to share them. I don't feel like I've had many lately. It seems my intimate time with God is not as intimate as it has been. I hope this season will be over soon, and God will continue to speak to me about himself! Also any post that has dealt with what the Lord has laid on my heart about waiting is a favorite post! He is teaching me much!!!

OH did you say one!!!! : )

Congratulations on 1 year. This is my first time here. I found you through CWO blogroll. I enjoyed your post "Things I Love About Fall." That is my favorite time of year.

Thanks for stopping by Bobbi Jo! Thanks so much for the encouraging words!

Hi there,
You don't know me, I've never commented here before. I found your blog when reading a post on christians in the public school and you commented there. I loved the post and am so sad I cannot find it now. I did save every link of the women who commented so I'm going around blogland asking if anyone knows what post I'm refering to. It discussed the issue of not feeling insecure about having our kids in the schools as christian moms. Is this rining any bells? Do you know where the blog is? I dont' see any links here of blogs you read so I thought I'd ask.
Thanks!

Miss*Suzanne said...

Girl!!, I'm cracking up at your answer to my question. What a great answer and if God ever gives you the answer...PLEASE share it with us!

Congratulations again and have a wonderful weekend!

Suzie ;)

Kim,

I really enjoyed your questions and your answers. I have enjoyed reading your blog, ever since I found you through the 8 in 2008 that we were doing. I missed my anniversary, although I did want to give you credit because you've inspired my next post.
