Moving Thoughts 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.


Remember in Mary Poppins, when Mary and the crew jumped into the sidewalk chalk drawings? Wouldn’t it be fun to be able to do that with books?

Here’s your chance…what book would you jump into?

  1. Hmm, That's a toughie...I think I'd love to jump into the book I read when I was a kid--James and the Giant Peach. That story totally captured my imagination. (Not to mention I'm craving peaches lately.) :)

  2. Harry Potter! As long as I'm not a muggle!

  3. I'm totally cracking up at Katie's answer. Harry Potter would be fun to jump into!

    Maybe Narnia for me. Or if I were younger, I'd jump into a Sweet Valley High book. LOL

  4. I would like to visit several places within George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, but I would not want to stay forever. After all, I do appreciate indoor plumbing. ;)

  5. Little Women. I'd enjoy meeting Jo and the other March sisters. Plus, I could do some research for the stories I write. =)

  6. The Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters.

  8. I'm with Katie- definitely Harry Potter. And I don't want to be a muggle, either.

  9. Awesome question! It's really hard to answer though.

    Hmm... Probably Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfield. It was a favorite of mine growing up!

  10. May I please jump into the Bible, and be there at the tomb when Jesus appears to Mary and the other women? Except for the lack of indoor plumbing, I think this is the most exciting moment in history.

  11. Oh, tough, tough question.
    I'm going with Little House in the Big Woods.
    Why?
    I've read that book 4 or 5 times out loud to my children through the years--it's a family favorite. I'd love to experience it in person.
    :O)

  12. Oh my gosh, that's a good question... Hmm...maybe Emma. I can see she and I being friends. :)

  13. This is a great question! And hard to answer.

    My first thought was Anne of Green Gables. When I was a kid I honestly believed I was born in the wrong century. Now that I'm an adult, I know better, but I think I'd still love to be part of Anne's world. And on Prince Edward Island with Gilbert. *sigh*

  14. Wow - that's a tough one. How do I choose?

    Probably The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers. It's set in 70AD starting in Jerusalem and ending in Rome. I've just love to be a little fly on the wall watching the story unfold with my own eyes :)

    And as tough as Artretes is, I can't help falling in love with him every time I read the book.

  15. I think I'd like to jump into Harry Potter world. I would say Twilight, but unlike Bella, if I were Hermoine the men in my life would actually let me do stuff instead of restricting me to my house and school, and taking away my motor bike.

  16. I'd have to say Narnia. Specifically, "The Horse and His Boy".

  17. Skimming through your responses, I see Little Women, Narnia, and Harry Potter. I'd go to all those places, but Harry Potter is my first choice. I really want a magic wand.

  18. Since I read a lot of historicals and action/suspense, I don't think I'd want to jump into any of them. I'm quite content to remain in the generation where God placed me. :)
