Purposeful Pages

Hello everyone! I'm here again with August's purposeful pages with Amanda and Hannah.

Purposeful Pages Meme

Purposeful Pages is a monthly link-up designed to unite bloggers on answering questions about life, blogging, the Bible, writing, and books.

So I will do my best to attempt to answer these questions.

What book of the Bible has taught you the most this month?
Proverbs. I haven't been reading through the book but I keep finding verses from it on graduation cards and such so. 
How would you react if you were in the positions of either Esther, if you’re a girl, or Daniel, if you’re a guy?
Scared? I would be really scared if I was Esther and I really don't know if I would have the courage she had to stand up for her people.
If you could have a book character for a sibling, who would it be, and what makes you two alike?
Probably Johnny from The Ousiders. He's very quiet and very insecure and I think I would be able to understand and relate with that. But despite his shy exterior, he's courageous and genuinely cares about his friends and is very loyal. 
How would you most likely spend your Friday night?
Probably reading, hanging out with the boys, or writing in my journal

What are the top three books you’re just dying to read?
A Time to Rise by Nadine Brandes, Navigating Early by Claire Vanderpool, and Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.
Can you briefly share the story behind your blog’s name?
So, we thought it would be unique to do jewels for our pen names and we then we started looking up Bible verses that involved precious metals and such and we liked 1 Peter 1:7.
What do you consider to be your blog’s “branding,” or signature? What sets your blog or social media platform apart from others?
I think what sets our blog apart is that it's not just one person's thoughts but rather several friends coming together to share our views on certain issues.
Who are a few of your favorite bloggers?
Well, Jonathan @ Fishing for Ideas, Amanda @ Scattered Journal Pages, Christopher Green @ Christ Bearer, and many more that I really don't have time to list.
If you could go on a road trip of your dreams, where would you go and who would you spend time with?
I would go to Scotland and bring my best friend Alyssa along cos she would keep my feet grounded while my head is in the clouds. :D
Using five words or less, tell a story.
Nobody's too broken for love.

Fun questions girls! Stay tuned for next month's questions!
