Contest for Chronicles of the Spanish War Series

Three brave "players" will be selected at random to win their own lost gold:
  • Gourmet chocolate coins and
  • All 3 books in the Chronicles of the Spanish Civil War series
To enter all you have to do is answer the following Meme on your own blog and then leave a comment on Tricia Goyer's blog (the author) saying that you’ve posted your Meme.

Here are my answers to the Meme questions:

1. List three things you would do with a chest full of gold (assuming you got to keep it!)
  • pay off all our debts
  • help orphans in a Big way
  • save and invest
Then I'd say to God, "Our debts have been paid and money has been saved - what do you want us to do now, God?

2. List three charities/missions/organizations you support (and why).
3. List three ways you have volunteered your time/services.
  • Our family likes to collect food and give it to Christian food pantries. Last year, we even grew lettuce, beans, and peas to give to a Christian Soup Kitchen.
  • I like volunteering at church with our Harvest Party, baking food for church activities, and working with the children.
  • I also like to promote evangelism and show people how Easy it is to Evangelize.
4. List three things you keep "hidden" when company comes over.
  • The upstairs bedrooms.
  • The inside of my oven. (It isn't a self cleaning one, so it doesn't get cleaned.)
  • The inside of my frig. (I have a hard time dealing with moldy leftovers. However, it has gotten much better now that the kids eat everything in site and we don't have many leftovers.)
5. List the last three things you've lost.
  • anything that I write on scratch paper (it just disappears)
  • pens and pencils (I usually end up taking phone messages with a crayon.)
  • my ambition to "get in shape"
6. List the last three things you've found.
  • misplaced school workbooks and reading books (almost daily)
  • that my kids are becoming more fun to converse with now that they are becoming teens
  • that I am still addicted to blogging and am having trouble cutting back on it

Oh, I like your lists. And now that you mention it, I realize I'm hiding way more than I admitted. Pretty much everything you wrote, too. Thanks for the visit. Have a wonderful day.

That's funny. I'm great at losing things too.
