I would like to thank the bloggers who participated by asking questions. Today I am sharing their questions, links to their blogs, and of course my answers.
Dawn of dawnfanshawe.wordpress.com asked– Two questions for you, Matt.: What did you do for a living before you became a Christian? and secondly: If someone were to buy you a return plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
Before I became a Christian, I was a wild teenager. Before I rededicated my life to Jesus, I sold Office Furniture for a Top 50 Dealership in the USA.
If I could return to a country. Hard to choose, but I would go with Brazil because I could visit friends in many different cities there, practice Portuguese, and enjoy a culture I love.
Jeanne of gardenfaith.com asked- Matt, if you had a garden what would you grow?
If I had a garden, I would feel sorry for the plants because they tend to die on me, If I could have a garden and be successful at it, I would grow veggies organically.
David of davidsdailydose.wordpress.com asked- What’s your favorite place you’ve ever visited or lived?
Rio do Sul Brazil is a place I love. I have been there twice. It is a small city in the mountains in Southern Brazil. I loved the culture, the people, and had my best trip there when I taught English at a university in June/July 2015.
Dawn of drawingclosertochrist.com asked- What foods do you like the most and the least?
The least is easy- food I cook because I am a bad cook. The most? food other people cook for me 🙂 I enjoy food from many different cultures so it is hard to say. 🙂
Barb of mylifeinourfathersworld.com asked- What is one topic that God has been asking you to write about that you don’t feel “good enough” to expound upon?
Not so much of not being good enough but I do not expound on passages dealing with marriage since I have not been married.
Cats and Coffee of midlifecatlday64.wordpress.com asked- If you believed in Reincarnation and could come back as any Animal; What would it be and why?
I do not believe in reincarnation. When I die, Jesus will take me to heaven and I will forever be me. But I think dolphins are really cool. I would like to be to swim as well as a dolphin, but I don’t want to be one. 🙂
Cynthia of Godly Princess at cynthiaswarroom.home.blog asked-1.)To me, you come out as a very warm person. How do you manage to keep the positive energy all the time?
2.)What is that one lowest point in your life that you thought you wouldn’t come out of but, you eventually overcame and is now history?
Any positive energy I have comes from Jesus and spending time with him to start my days 🙂
1993 to 1995 I was sick and kept getting progressively worse. I had to leave the school where I was studying for ministry in April 1994. In July 1995, one night I thought it was time for me to die and I prayed. After praying I felt the presence of Jesus. The next day the doctor finally diagnosed the problem and started on the medication I needed.
Alicia of forhispurpose.blog asked-What has been your favorite part of this summer?
One good thing for me has been having a few cooler days at times because I do not do well with summer heat. On the cooler days I have been able to go for shorts walks.
But my favorite part was teaching teaching online classes for Family Literacy Summer School.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
