50. What version of the Bible do you prefer? NKJV.

51. What’s the story behind your blog name? Sharing Angie’s answer: I had felt God tugging at my heart to begin blogging again. I had no idea for a name though. I had already contacted Karen about joining me, and I may have asked Emily. I was praying for just the right name for a few weeks. One day I was at home with all 5 of my kids when one asked, “Mom, why do you wash your hands all the time?” I didn’t think much of it… But a few hours later I laughed & said, “Oh my word! My hands are always sticky from you kids!” And it hit me. Just like that. In the moments my hands are sticky, the kids are crying, dinner is ruined, my house is in shambles, and someone is needing a hug… I just have to stop what I’m doing, raise my sticky hands towards Heaven, and praise Him. And there you have it folks, the reason behind our crazy name.

52. Describe the ultimate hands down best date on a $20 budget.
$20 spent entirely on food cause I love food, followed by playing at the park or fishing. I’ll even settle for sidewalk chalking. Or my mushier version- same for $20, followed by a foot/back massage cause that would be awesome (for me anyway, not for Markus cause he’d have to give it lol )

53. Will you tell one blogger about this survey? If so, then who? (optional: include their web address) Yes

54. What is your favorite scripture? Okay, why do you keep doing this to me??? You know I can’t pick just one! I have MANY and they change a lot, but currently it’s Proverbs 3:5-6
