My Answers :)

Okay, here it is :D  A lot of good questions were asked, and it has been totally fun answering them.  Thank you all for participating :)

Edit: I missed some questions, they are at the end of this with my answers :)

What are your life goals?

I'd like to get married raise a big family, serve my God, start a business fixing and making things while living and working on my own self sufficient farm :)  Oh, and kill a coyote :P  Been trying to do that for ten years.

Do you play any musical instruments?

Yes, well sort of.  Until about eight years ago I played mountain dulcimer, I stopped when it broke, and we got busy.  Time sure flies lol.  I have tinkered with piano, and I plan on learning guitar and penny-whistle. I am making a psaltery, so I will be playing that too :)

What's been the highlight of your year so far?

How well the farm has done. Been a great season with the lambing and kidding, as well as with hatching chicks and our garden :)

Favorite scripture passage?

So hard, so many good ones to choose from.  It is hard to pick just one verse and not a whole passage.  I'll give you Romans 6:16
Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

What does your daily life look like?

Really Moriah? :P  Let's say, it varies, and is quite complicated.  I get up between 4:30 and 5:00, help Dad with some things before work, eat breakfast, around 7 I go out with sis and do farm chores, then around 8:30 to 9 I start on the project of the day, whatever that might be, anything from farm maintenance, to projects like our building our living room.  Around 1pm we do a quick animal check then have lunch and after lunch continue with the project of the day.  At 4pm we do the final farm chores, then eat dinner and after dinner if there are no pressing projects I relax and have some free-time :)  I go to bed around 8:30 to 9.  This is kinda simplified, lol.

What's your favorite memory?

It was my 22nd birthday when my parents and sis prayed for me.  I have never felt the power of God like that day, and realizing just how much my family loves me even though I am not perfect.  It was so humbling, yet so inspiring, I remember almost breaking down weeping.  I think that is definitely my favorite memory.  (They do pray for me other times too, and on birthdays as well, that one was just different.)

What are you currently studying? (Or what is your current interest?)

Several things, 3D animation, video editing, diesel engine repair, ornamental iron work, fine woodworking and what ever I am learning by doing on the farm, which includes; welding, construction, various repair work Of course airplanes and aviation always hold my interest ;)

Favorite hymn..I think it is, It is well with my that correct?

Correct, and a close second would be: My Jesus I Love Thee.

Have you ever been to the sand bass festival?


If so, what does one do there? If not, why not?

I prefer home, to sitting around on hot concrete with lots of people and noise.  I suppose it might be interesting, just never thought about it.  I've been to town around the time it happens and all I can say is you could never pay me enough to ride on those rides :P  I doubt they have been repaired since 1900, sheesh, LOL. (I am sure they are safe, even if they don't look like it)  The main thing I ever notice about the festival is that they always block off part of town for it, and that is irritating :P

What sort of food do you like?

Just about anything, provided it is not over-processed or from a fast food place, or too sweet, or un-healthy ;)  My favorites would be my Mom's pizza and spaghetti and my Dad's Chili.  Oh, and anything bread.  Second to that would be meat.  Especially beef.  :)

Do you grow a garden?

Yes, we have a pretty good sized garden with lots of tomatoes, all kinds of squash and this year even some corn :)

Do you have a favorite season?

Spring.  Hands down.

What do you think of the apocrypha?

I've read parts of it, some of them are interesting stories, but in general they seem pretty lame.

Do you like medicinal herbs?

Oh yes.  Some of them even taste good, and they work so well :)

Do you like to travel?

Yes, but thanks to big brother, it sadly is too expensive to indulge in :(

Do you like being around shorter people or taller people?

I am 6'2" myself, I like being around both, that way when my neck gets tired from looking up I can find a short person to talk to :P  Oh, around here, there are a fair amount of guys much taller than I in case you are wondering.  

Calvinism, Arminianism, or neither?

Neither. If you want to label me call me a Biblicist. I am a christian that believes the literal interpretation of scripture.  I just read the Bible and believe it.  I don't follow men. 

Do you have a favorite sport? Canoing? volleyball? etc...

Shooting.   I. Love. Shooting.  Other than that I am not really into sports.  Maybe Dodge-ball if that is a sport :P

Do you have a favorite animal? 

Probably would have to be goats.  I love goats, they have sweet personalities, they are easy to raise, fun to be around, and they taste good :D

What's your middle name?


Do you like your first name?

Yes, definitely.  

If you were to travel anywhere, where would it be?

Hmm, probably Idaho or Washington, or Ohio, or Arizona, to see my wonderful internet friends in those places.

Do you like peacocks? Would you keep them for pets?

They are pretty, but no I wouldn't want one, I've heard bad things about them.

What's your " look"? Farmer, mountain man, whatever...?? :)

I normally probably would qualify as farmer/redneck with my T-shirt and jeans, or long sleeved shirt and jeans.  If I could wear anything I wanted to, I'd go full military in either black or camo.  That is my favorite look.

What's the number one food you can't stand eating?

Raw asparagus.  I can't believe anyone can actually like that stuff.

Do you have a favorite Bible character?

Uriah the Hittite, the one I was named after.  He is pretty awesome.  I want to meet him in heaven :)

Any favorite musicians?

Emily Reith from Southern Raised, she is a crazy good fiddler ;)  The whole Wissmann family :)  Lydia Willis, a very good pianist, love her music :)

Why you are an Arminianist?

I am not.  I just believe the Bible.  To answer this question I actually had to look up Arminianism to see what it even was.  I had a foggy idea of what it was, and even that was wrong, lol.  From my research, I agree with the views put forth under Arminianism, but as a whole it just looks like a way to use long theological words to make something as simple as the gospel confusing.  I'll stick with the Bible.  Just read it in English and believe it.  Forget what men have to say.

Do you listen to alternative talk radio? 

Yes, sometimes.

If so what is your favorite shows? 

Alex Jones

Would you rather it be a hundred and two out or sixteen? 

It depends on what I am used to, I like both really.

what is the coolest thing you have taken/seen while hunting? 

Hmm, seeing two does come from down wind of me and stop behind my stand where I couldn't shoot them. I could have sworn they had their tongues out at me LOL.  You don't want to hear my hunting stories, cause they are all no good :P

What was the last thing you tinkered with(car, mower, etc)? 

A Homelite 330 chainsaw.  Love that thing :)

Do you know how to weld? 

Yep, I am pretty good with MIG, okay with A/C stick.

If you could fly any type of plane, what would you pick?

P-38 or P-51

I hope y'all enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed writing it :D

God bless,
