The Tour MEME and Another Contest:
1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)?
Give 10% or more to my church, help fund expenses for my friends who are going on overseas mission trips and invest the remaining money to provide residual income for living expenses and giving to causes and organizations I feel led to support.
2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why)?
The church I attend, Geralyn Beauchamp whose first novel was written to promote purity and share some of what she’s learned about relationships because the writing is great and the purity message is desperately needed, Christian Fiction Review Blog (CFRB) because they are providing a service to authors as well as ministering to one another as a group of readers and writers.
3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services?
My volunteer time is devoted to organizations and causes that I believe in when and where my talents and abilities are in need. See answer to #2 for some of these organizations and causes. Right now time and talent is my available resource to offer in support to those organizations and causes and it seems people are always in need of a detail oriented and organized person. I just wish I had more time to volunteer my talents to help my friends and others I’d like to assist.
4. List three things you keep “hidden” when company comes over?
My piles of filing and paperwork to attend to, the unmade bed, dirty dishes.
5. List the last three things you’ve lost?
Keys, Cell Phone, Whatever piece of paper or mail I need this minute.
6. List the last three things you’ve found?
Car Keys, Cell Phone, Random papers or mail I don’t need or should have thrown out.
Three brave “players” will be selected at random to win their own lost gold (Gourmet chocolate coins and all three books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series).
