(Click here, to see Lauren’s, ‘Get To Know Me,’ tag!!

But yeah, this tag is pretty, to-the-point! It has some basic questions, and still some really crazy ones…
:\ Haha, bear with me! 😛

Yays!! Okay… So, let’s start this…
(I vow to answer honestly, and completely… :P)
Press any of the blue text, to go straight to the subject, that the text is about!

** Vital Stats **

Name:
Mary Kate, of course! 😛

Nicknames:
You asked, and now I must write this whole paragraph of nicknames… *sigh*
Mary, Kate, KK, MK, Kae, Katie, Kathy, Katherine, K, Murrey, Maria, Hummer, MM, or just M… Maybe even Mary Kate is a nickname, eh?(Hehe, I had to act like I didn’t enjoy writing that!)

** Firsts **

Best Friend:
My first? Hmmms…
I guess I’d have to say my brother! I’ve had friends from all over, but my brother was there when I took my first steps, and cheering me on!

Award:
Oh… Wells, I’m not exactly certain. I won a Christian character award in Kindergarten, I believe, but then again, who’s to say someone did pay me with a cookie after doing chores? 😀

Sport:
I guess this means, the first sport I played? That would most likely be basketball, and hey, I still even remember the tiny goal I had gotten for Christmas!!

Real Holiday:
I’m taking this as to mean, my first vacation? If so, this is harder than once thought… *ponders*
My family usually visits Gatlinburg, Tennessee for vacation, stays in a chalet, and etc., so maybe that was it!

Concert:
Hehe, I’ve never been to a concert…
Yeah, you know I love my Christian music, but I have just never been taken to any sort of concert.
I really made this question boring, eh?
Maybe soon, I can redo this answer!

** Favorites **

Film:
Oh, good one it is!
I’d say…
(Firstly, put an ‘s’ at the end of that ‘film.’)

* “Fireproof,”
(JJ, I told you that I don’t mind romance movies, as long as they are correct! :P)

“The Fox and The Hound,”
(So sad – but, so touching!)

* “Pray,”
(Now to get all serious, and thrilling…)

Color:
Light, baby blue – like the sky blue you get on a beautiful, God given day!

Song:
“Dive,” by Steven Curtis Chapman!!
Haha, I have loved this song since I was a little girl! It relates to life, and reminds me, that sometimes, when God is leading, you just have to throw away the worry holding you back, take a chance, and dive in!

Restaurant:
Either, Folks, or Arby’s!! *stomach rumbles*

Books:

* The KJV Bible
* “The Hiding Place”
* Now honestly, I have about 8 more, and they are all on the same class of awesomeness… Would be better just to check out – This List!
(I’m so very thankful y’all didn’t make me pick just one!)

(Do you get it yet? I said, “Please, bear with me? :P)

** Currently **

Feeling:
Tired. Haha, yeah I am currently overthinking, wondering, pondering, and just feeling overly tired… But still, kinda excited… Kinda peaceful… Yeah, don’t ask me how those emotions fit together, haha!
Maybe I should go to bed… *zzzz* Nope – not yet! 😛

Single or Taken:
What’s taken? The food? Oh no!?
No, it’s God’s plan for me to be single currently, and thus why I am!

Eating:
Not eating, presently, but about to eat a half a ham sandwich!

Watching:
My fingers press these letters, on this small device, that keeps alerting me… Odd, isn’t it? 😛

** Future **

Want Children:
I sure do! I pray the Lord allows!

Want to Get Married:
Again, I sure do!! It’s a dream, that I pray the Lord leads!

Careers in Mind:
My dream career, is to be a wife and mother! A career, to make a living, would be, a social worker, writer, or religious studies major…

** Do You Believe In… **
(My beliefs are backed up with Scriptures!)

God:
I do! Without God, who would have made the heavens?
Without God, wouldn’t I be alone?
Without God the DNA of each of the billions of humans, would not exist, and love would be unknown!
I believe in God – Jesus Christ – for without Him, I wouldn’t be!

* 1 Chronicles 29:11
Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.

Miracles:
I believe that God works miracles each, and every day – just for us!
With a heart that beats, 100,000, times per day – there is always a miracle!
* Acts 4:30
By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

Love at First Sight:
Gee, I wish I had a dollar for every time I was asked this… Seems to be a very popular question, eh?
I don’t believe in love at first sight.
Love is a choice, one that grows over time, and depth!
Love is not taken by appearance, or hair color; love is given, by care for the other person, just because they are them.
I do, however, believe in the belief of love at first sight. When you see that person, and just know that given time, and God’s leading, you could fall in love with this person.
That inspires me to do another blog post… Hmm…
* John 15:13

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Ghosts:
I do not believe in ghosts, but there are demons, and evil spirits; what may be thought as a ghost, may actually be the latter.
* 1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Aliens:
Haha, nahh! 😛
I don’t feel I need to explain this one…
* Isaiah 45:12
I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, [even] my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.

Soul Mates:
I’ve never used this word, so I’d say no… I do believe that God has ordained a plan, and purpose for our lives, if we will give it to Him!
And, if it is His will for us to have a husband \ wife, He will ordain one, set them aside, and bring them together at the right time!
God loves you, and has a beautiful plan in mind for you!
* Matthew 19:6

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

Heaven:
Yes! Heaven is real, and one day I pray I can see it!
* John 14:2

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if [it were] not [so], I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

Hell:
Yes. Hell is a real, burning place, that was made for the demons, and devils that rebelled against God. However, since we are corrupted by sin, as well, we would have to pay the price, by going to this deep pit. But, because of Jesus we no longer have to burn in hell, but rather, we can ask for forgiveness of our sins, believe in Christ, ask for salvation, and follow Him!
Do you know Jesus?
* Matthew 25:46
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Kissing On The First Date:
Ahem… Another popular question I have been asked, oh too many times…
But really, this all depends…
If the, ‘first date,’ is the first time you spend together, and talk, then no, you should not be kissing.
But, if you are labeling the, ‘first date,’ as the first time y’all consider it dating, yet you have known each other forever, well let’s just say that’s a different story.

While I do not say I believe that one should wait till their wedding day to have their first kiss, I still applaud those who do.
I believe this action, like all others in life, should be taken with care, and thought – not with perversion, and the famous slogan, ‘do whatever you want!’
This is a serious issue, and one that should be honored…
(And, trust me, it isn’t hard to be serious with it. How amazing would it be to say the only person you ever kissed was your spouse – I’m aiming for that!)
* Titus 2:12

Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;

Yourself:
I believe that I am human, flawed, and not fit to serve God. However, I also believe that Christ died, so that I could be the best I could be, and do that which He calls me!
My Saviour Jesus, leads me on!
* Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

  1. This post and responses are magnificent, very challenging to describe any other way! From the scriptures, favorites, and to personal connections (situations) were well thought-out.

    I could probably go on and on about how great this post is, but you really hit-the-nail-on-the-head in my opinion. One of my favorite parts or responses (besides recognizing the scriptures) to read was about your favorite TV. show.

    I love classic shows like “The Twilight Zone”, “The Honeymooners”, “M.A.S.H.”, and “The Andy Griffith Show”! Most of the shows I mentioned were part of my childhood! The short stories are very suspenseful, interesting, entertaining, memorable, heartfelt, and attention-grabbing. I have seen all of “The Twilight Zone” episodes many of times, as far as I know.

    If I am able to participate in this post, it will be done. I thank everyone for involved for creating and sharing this post, really enjoyable and uplifting to read! Well done Mary! 😀 \(^O^)/ ❤

    • Aw, thanks!! It is awesome that you read this, and commented!! 😀
      Ooh, yass! Old shows are really one of the only things I watch nowadays, since they are clean, and I don’t have to be afraid of what they are gonna show.
      Oh, and “The Andy Griffith Show,” is also a favorite!
      They sure are – always so creative! The writing was superb!
      I don’t know if I’ve seen them all, but I’ve seen quite a many! 😛
      Yay! That will be great! I look forward to whatever you decide.
      Thanks so much for reading!
      Blessings! 😀

  2. I loved reading this, Mary! Thanks for doing it.
    I liked how you backed up your answers with Scriptures, especially.
    You live in Georgia, yet you’ve never had a peach? *gasp*!
    Just kidding. 🙂

    • Hey Lauren!! Aw, and thank you for nominating me – super fun it was, if I may say! 😛
      Ooh, thanks!! 😀
      Hahaha, right!? I shocked myself with that one – I’m gonna have to go find one! *leaves searching for a peach*

  3. Well that was informative :P. I didn’t think there were modern Christian women out there who still just wanted to be housewives, well maybe from where I’m at but not in the West. Shows how much I know. After all, if the Lord removed a rib from Adam from which He fashioned Eve, it stands to reason there’s a man somewhere missing a rib – and ribs significant even if they are unseen most of the time – they protect the heart don’t they? :).

    Enjoyed reading this :).

    God bless

    • Haha, very! I read through this post again though (since it’s been so long ago that I didn’t even remember it) and felt like I came off very arrogant; I never was a good one for tags. 😛

      Hahaha, oh yes! No one wants to be a housewife now over here, but there’s a few left. We’re just very rare, clearly. 😛 Mhm, you’re right! I’m sure that man missing one rib is around here somewhere; he just hasn’t been found yet, haha. Yes, most significant they are! Thanks for commenting! You made me laugh today. 😀

      God bless!
