Sisters in Christ ~ Janelle M. ~ January 2018

Welcome to the January 2018 edition of Sisters in Christ!



Today's special guest is Janelle from The Ramblings of a Book Worm. Please introduce yourself, Janelle! :)

I'm a rambler. Extrovert. Spending time with people is legit. God is best. I love the smell of books. Summer is a state of mind.



Summer is pretty epic. ;D Since I've got to know you a bit through your blog... What inspired you to start one?
Well I remember a while ago looking for a blog that gave a bunch of book reviews (since *cough* I always seem to need more books) anyways I couldn't find quite what I was look for so, I came up with my own blog :D


Did you read other blogs before starting your own, or was starting a blog what thrust you into this amazing world we call The Blogosphere? ;)
I followed this blog called Andi Carter's blog ;) I'm sure your probably familer with it :D


How did you find my blog(s)?
I discovered your blog from the ... On the CC Adventures blog


Okiedoke, let's talk about faith-stuff. What's your favorite Bible verse, chapter, and book? Why?
Romans. Definitely Romans. I love the power and depth that Paul talks about. I think the 8th Chapter is probably my favorite mostly because beacuse it's talking about Grace. Peace. Love.
And MY favorite verse would be Romans 8:38-39 ;)



That verse is beautiful! What Bible verse(s) have really helped you through some rough times?
I remember this one time a few years ago when I was feeling very fearful about something and God gave me this verse In Isaiah. I don't remember exactly what verse it is but it was what I needed at that precise moment. And yeah that was pretty cool.


What is one event in your life that really strengthened your Christian walk?
There have been so many small moments that God has brought me through. And one thing that I find helps has been praying constantly throughout the day. I find that there is peace and grace that surrounds my day.


Agreed. <3 Any Bible reading tips?
Read it every day. That's all I have to say 😊


Let's talk a bit about bookish things! On a scale of 1-10, how much of a reader would you consider yourself? What about a writer?
*cough*  most definitely a 10. My bookshelf is so filled with books I'm not sure that I could fit another one on it. But that doesn't stop me from buying more... not sure if that's a problem or not..hmm

As far as writing goes, I have quite a few notebooks that are filled with unfinished stories that I never finished. So yeah that's about how all of my writing goes.
Although I do journal, and somehow actually write in it fairly often. ;)



Haha, totally not a problem. xD Where's your favorite place to read and/or write?
MY ideal place to read would be curled up in a hammock, listing to the birds chirping and the warm sun glowing down on me. And of course a LARGE cup of iced coffee in my hand;)



What's your favorite author(s)? Favorite books by them?
Where to begin.... let's see I would probably have to say that Francine Rivers, C.S.Lewis, Tricia Goyer, and Lynn Austin are some of the best writers I've come across But if I must chose my favorite author ever it would have to be L.M.Montgumery. Her books are so incredible!!


Favorite books?! *shakes head*  how am I supposed to chose which books I like best?? That would be like asking someone which of their children do they love the most.
*sighs* I do have a few that I think are really amazing.
The Narnia series by C.S.Lewis. Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers. The Fire by night series by Lynn Austin :D of course Anne of Green Gables gahhh so Good! And any WW11 book by Tricia Goyer..
So yeah :) I can talk about BOOKS for quite a while.


Same here! What are some books that really impacted your young life?
I remember a few years ago reading the book The Screwtape Letters by C.S.Lewis. Wow. That book was filled with so much truth and wisdom. It also gave me another perspective of how the Spiritual World is.


As a child my favorite books were that Circle C Adventure series. I read those books cover to cover!


Lastly, I have some random questions for you before we sign off. If you had to use one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
Exuberant.


Any pet peeves?
Gahh pet peeves lets see...
I probably have a bunch I just can't thibk of any right now. Hahaha


Favorite songs?
I love For King and Country so probably anyone of their songs ❤ although if i must chose my favorite song would probably be Priceless :D



Anything else to add? Goals for this year?
Goals?? Hmm. Well my hope is that God will continue to use and strengthen me. Even if it's not a pleasant experience, when you looks back a year later or whenever, often you can see how through the tough times God used them to draw you closer to Him.

Thanks for chatting with me today, Janelle! Be sure to leave her a comment and check out her blog!

Two quick updates before I head off. First, I've joining the new group blog Living for Jesus Christ and will hopefully be posting there a couple times a month. Secondly, I'm going on a blogging break for the month of January.

See y'all in February! :D

  1. Hey Janelle! Thanks for letting us to get to know you some :). Lynn Austin is definitely one of my favorite authors. I also like Francine Rivers (Redeeming Love is such a beautiful book, C.S Lewis (Narnia). And I liked reading Anne of Green Gables. I’ve read some lf The ScrewTape Letters, from what I’ve read it’s good. Also another eye opening book to the spiritual realm was This Present Darkness and it’s sequel by Frank Peretti.... though fiction books they are really good and opened my eyes to how real Spiritual warfare is.
    I love to read and to write. I love to journal.
    Thanks also Faith for doing things like this, letting people “visit” your blog :).
