One Question Friday

Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.

It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.

So what are those?
My potential memoir titles.
Now, for your One Question Friday…
What would you title your memoir?

** "The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty. Let all the earth rejoice. All the earth rejoice. He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide. And trembles at His voice. Trembles at His voice. How great is our God, sing with me…How great is our God, and all will see. How great, how great is our God…" ~ Chris Tomlin


  1. Coming down off the moon: One woman's aggressive quest for normalcy.

  2. Not sure what I'd title my memior...tough question, but good food for thought! :)

    Wendy, thanks for making the connection for me that you also write at 5 Minutes for Faith!

    Have a great Friday,


  3. This is the first Friday I don't have an answer! Tough question! My memoire would be boring! I've had a pretty typical life.

  4. This is hard.

    Polishing the Rough Edges?

    Nothing Comes Easy?

    Embracing Imperfection?

    All could apply.
    Have a great weekend!!

  5. To answer your question from yesterday:
    The Rat House was the first house my husband and I ever bought. It was roughly 800 square feet, and we found out AFTER we bought it (to our surprise and horror) that it was infested with rats (collective EWWWW!). I believe my words to my husband were something along the lines of "kill them or I will kill YOU" :)
    The Scare of My Life was when my 2nd son, Tyler, was born. He was severely underweight (but not premature) and had to spend a week in the NICU - worst week of my life for sure. I've since dubbed him Child Who Will Be Responsible For All My Gray Hairs because he continues to pull stunts that make my heart stop.

    I think I'd entitle my memoir Filthy Rags (after Isaiah 64:6).

    I'm so thankful for your blog! Have a blessed weekend :)

  6. It's not about feelings. It's all about Obedience.

    I've learned that I can't base my life decisions based on the feel-goods. But rather walking through the tough times out of obedience to a higher calling.

  7. First Option: It's Not Hell--It's Reality. I've had many experiences where evil almost won.

    Second Option: One Crazy Chick. I tend to live my life by impulse when at all possible. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, and sometimes it's just plain crazy.

  8. My title:

    Ordinary seeing His extraordinary!

    This was off the cuff. I'm sure I could work to make a better one.

    Why this title? Because I feel very ordinary. And yet I see God's presence every day in the ordinary things of life and that is extraordinary. To be gifted with HIS nearness is my greatest joy and shout out!

    Love your possible titles.

  9. What timing God has.. I had just reposted an answer to a similar question at Cafe Chat/Internet Cafe on my blog last week:
    Glad I ran into you.. I have to read more!

  10. What I would like it to be? - Well done, thou good and faithful servant. But it might read more like - Hey, you did pretty good, most of the time, when you thought about it..... :)

  11. Okay, Wendy. I finally know the name of a memoir.

    "The Cup"

    As in the cup's half full. Or even 1% full. But always full.
    As in "you will indeed drink My cup" (Mark 10:39).
    As in "whoever gives one of these little ones a cup of cold water ... shall by no means lose his reward" (Mat 10:42)
    As in the cup I wait to share with Jesus in His Father's kingdom. (Mat 26:29)

  12. Eek. All these great questions and I don't know how to answer. I thought I was introspective, but now I know I'm not. Sheesh. I'd guess my title would have something to do with learning how to be bold, or how to forgive. LOL This is why I don't write memoir. My life would be boring because it's been so much easier than other lives.

  13. Great question. I think mine would be "I am Who I am". It is a motto I developed a long time ago when I stopped comparing myself to others and became happy with just being me, with all of my flaws.

  14. Hi Wendy,
    How is your Dad?
    My memoir as I write it it has a working title: Doris, Sophia & Me: A memoir about my mother who didn't live long enough and my daughter who was never born.

  15. Catching up on some of your posts, Wendy. I love this Friday question ...


    Perhaps "I Love to Tell the Story."

    I've been a writer/storyteller/news reporter for most of my life, but only in the last few years have I been interested in telling THAT story, God's story. (May it be "my theme in glory.")

    Blessings sister!
