|Chain Interview ThingieINSTRUCTIONS:

2. I will respond by asking you five questions. I get to pick the questions.

4. Update your blog (or leave them in my comments section for those without a blog) with the answers to the questions.
5. Include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
6. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.(6/22/13 – Xanga is closing so this link won’t work soon.) Tina gave me the following questions.
Here’s your interview questions:
1. What is the strangest job you’ve held?
Two come to mind. During my “hippie” days I worked in a head shop that sold posters and other hippie paraphernalia. I started out there rolling posters for 2 cents a poster, but did it so quickly that I ended up earning more than minimum wage, so they gave me a “promotion” at minimum wage. I also spent a summer stripping wood in a house in St. Louis. It was a very caustic sort of job, but fun.
2. What are your spiritual gifts? I am still rather new to Christianity, so I am not certain what gifts are going to manifest in my life. I know that I have a calling to work with children and do so. Pastor Don says that I will be a good teacher, and he has prayed over my hands for healing. I still sort of feel like a sponge, soaking up lots of stuff. I feel that God and I are working things out, and I kind of stray away from some of the spiritual gifts until I can make sure that they are not connected to the occult roots that I once had. I used to be a psychic, so am careful about what I speak over a person, making sure it comes from God, and not from things from my past. But Pastor Don has said that I will be a secret weapon, and one of the realms I will be working in is helping break people free from the occult. And he has also told me that Xanga is like a ministry for me. He has approved of all that I have shared on Xanga of his Bible teachings, and loves reading your comments. But right now, I think God is just doing a work in me to help me sort out all of the things that still need sorting out. My biggest goal is to be obedient to God, to the best of my ability.
3. How many states have you visited? 13 states: Missouri, Texas, Wisconsin, Illinois, California, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee, Ohio, Minnesota, Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia I am assuming that you mean actually stayed and toured or spent time there, not just drive through.
4. What nicknames have you gone by in your life? The only nick name I have had is Heather Dawn. I picked this name after I decided to live and not die, when I was very suicidal. Heather is a plant, growing alive and living, and Dawn is a rebirth, a reawakening, a coming anew. It still fits in my Christian life, way better than my legal name of Shirley (I was named after Shirley Temple, and I do not sing, dance, and am not a cute, little thing.)
5. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? My kids will be grown, hopefully I will be a grandma. I would love to be involved in ministry, and might like to go to college and take some actual Bible courses and learn much. I have a fear of teaching in error, and do not want to be held accountable for any error in teaching by God.
Thanks for asking these questions, it was fun to answer. I like surveys like this because they are smaller and have more content. The ones with millions of questions I can’t deal with.
