The 5 Interview Questions

Thanks to Micah, here's a short interview of me. If you care to play, follow the directions at the bottom.

1. What person, living or dead, whom you have never met, do you identify with most? Why?
Hmm, that's a toughie. I don't know if I really understand the question, but I think maybe Elisabeth Elliot or Tzipporah (Moses' wife). EE because we have similar writing styles, very similar theological tendencies, and somewhat similar hearts (if you can tell that sort of thing from her books and talks - and the fact that she is much more mature than me does not escape me); Tzipporah because of her urgency to please and satisfy God's righteous requirements during that whole circumcision escapade (which is something I guess we all want to do - be justified before God). But I'm sure the fact that I spent 8 hours in class today has something to do with my inability to think of anything else but Margaret Thatcher, of whom I know very little.

2. What book, other than the Bible, has had the biggest impact on your life?
That is a really hard question. It's like asking which math book I ever used taught me the most about math. I think there are probably 3 decent answers to that question: Redeeming Love was instrumental in demonstrating to me the extremely dysfunctional attitude I had toward God; God's Passion for His Glory, my first introduction to Christian hedonism; and Holiness by Grace.

3. What is your fondest childhood memory?
I'm going to be arbitrary and pick the day after my parents told me and my sister that we were going to have a baby sibling, because it had finally sunken in and I was thrilled to plan and prepare for the new baby that I had wanted and prayed for soooo long.

4. What is your worst habit?
Undoubtedly picking dead skin off my fingers. If you think it's not a big deal, you try quitting.

5. What actress should play you in the movie based on your life?
Hahaha... if we're going by similarity to my appearance, voice, and mannerisms, there's no contest: Julia Stiles. But if she's busy, you could cast Kirsten Dunst (think Elizabethtown) as long as everyone else is short to make her look tall, as I am rather tall indeed.

1. Leave me a comment that says "Interview me."
2. I respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you ask them five questions.

Oh dear...now I'll have to read your blog in Julia Styles' voice.

re #4...I used to bite my nails all the time. Know how I stopped? I started wearing socks.

Glad to have you back! Interview me. Sounds rather demanding, doesn't it :)
