  • Nominate 5+ bloggers you’d like to know more about, to do this tag 


1. Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?

My oldest daughter had started a blog a while back and she told me I should do the same. She thought it would be good therapy for me to write about my feelings and experiences. 

I’ve almost quit! However, I keep coming back and hitting the keys. It floors me that people actually read my post and hit the “like” button. I had no idea anyone would ever read anything I wrote. I was very surprised at the love and support I began to receive from people I’ll never meet. I never expected that. I was so used to having only one person in my life cheer me on and speak life to me. Ya’ll have no idea how much your kind words and prayers have meant to me. I love you. ❤


2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?

Hmmm…. I like to write post about my feelings and the men I have loved. I also like to write about my thoughts, my “confessions”, my favorite things, my life and share music. I love music. 


3. What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?


When you need God to answer your prayers…

The Heart of Teenage Purple Rose

Confession #5 Why “Purple Rose”/ Why I Blog


4. What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?

I love diffusing essential oils, taking bubble baths, putting on body lotion that is just the right amount of sent without being overwhelming, playing relaxing music, having candlelight all over my house, and well…. 


5. What are 3 of your favorite things?

Bible study 

Girl’s nights 

Victoria’s Secret Gift cards


6. What are your proudest blogging moments?

Hmmm… getting comments like these:  

“I’m in tears. So beautiful!”

“You have the warrior spirit of an angel! Don’t lose sight of that!!”

“So proud of you, Mom! You are a true inspiration to not only myself, but everyone around you. I hope this blog helps you to appreciate your journey and see what an amazing person you are. I love you ❤”

“Dearest Purple Rose, what you have written here today has brought tears to my eyes. For I know there will be a day I will have to share the real me, the whole story, to my daughters(who will want to know.) It is a fear though, to think of having to disappoint them with my failures. Yet, I hope it will help keep them from repeating my mistakes.
Anyway, what I wanted to say to you is that you must be a remarkable woman to have raised a remarkable daughter, who cares to continue to want to know you into her adulthood! I can only pray that I will have that bond with my daughters someday too. I’m sending you the link to my story in the next comment should you want to know more about me. I look forward to following you and your daughter.”


7. What are your hobbies outside of blogging?

Photography, cooking, listening to music, reading, spending time with my daughters, and spending time discussing spiritual things with my father.


8. Describe your personality in 3 words:

Compassionate, honest and very affectionate.


9. What are your top 3 pet peeves?

Being late


Not washing hands after using the restroom


10. What’s something your followers don’t know about you?

I didn’t know what to say for this one, so I asked the man sitting next to me and he said that I am, “One FINE woman!”

I’ll take that! 🙂 

Let’s see… I wear a size 5 1/2 in women’s shoes and I have to order most of my shoes/boots online because most of the stores I shop at discriminate against women with feet smaller than a size 6. Not fair!!! 


This was fun! Thanks again Stuart. ❤


Tag you are it…

      Yeah?!! I never feel like I do these as good as you, but I sure have fun playing.

      Oh, yes… I tried to keep it “G” rated (I could honestly write all day about that subject). LOL
      Hmmm… that gives me an idea for a post. Maybe I will go there. 🙂

      Brother Stuart, I appreciate your honesty and taking time to read and/or comment on pretty much anything I ramble on about. Your comments mean more to me than you will ever know. ❤

        Yeah! You do great on these. They are a lot of fun.

        I could write on that subject a lot. But I have a real hard time with “G” rating much less “PG”. You should write about it 🙂 We need more positive posts on the subject ❤

        I might do that. I’m not sure how I would do it though. I know what you mean about the “G” rating. I have to have Dollface edit my real life stories as it is. She’s like, “Yeah. let me read it… ummmm, okay this part.. do you wanna say that or…” Hahaha

        I am constantly asking her how to put what just came out of my mouth into different words on my post so I don’t… offend anyone. I tend to shock people in real life. Always have. I’m just way too honest and very detailed. My mother would shake her head at my comments and I’ve been quite the character during her Bible study in the past. My oldest brother brings it out of me even more. We like to have fun and sometimes people can’t believe our straight talk and what we find funny. God created everything in the first place, we shouldn’t let the devil have it all! I do filter myself though. This is me, (typing. typing. typing….delete, delete….) LOL

        If you think it would help, I think I might try it. What would be good topics? I trust your judgement brother Stuart. ❤

        I have the type, type, delete problem too 🙂

        But you can’t worry about offending people if what you are writing about is real and honest. I’ve had people unfollow because of a post or a word used and then come back. It’s just a part of blogging.

        Allow me to pray about it and I’ll get back with you. You pray too.

        But whatever you write about I’m sure Dollface will blush 😂

        😂😂😂 you guys are too funny! I just know people can be really uptight and if anyone gets onto her or lectures her….I’m gonna be like, “It’s fighting time” 👊

        But, Stuart is right and it’s about being honest and happy with what YOU write, not what other people think 😊

        It is true that people can be uptight, especially about certain topics…mine included. I’m by no means telling her to step out of her comfort zone but it really would be nice to hear about enjoyment from a female’s perspective on some things.
        But it should not be a taboo topic just because of people’s uptightness. I believe their uptightness is why a lot of teens are dealing with certain issues.

        So uptight! “The talk” wasn’t much of a talk to me. You felt like you couldn’t talk about it at all because it’s bad, everything is bad unless you’re married and then you shouldn’t speak of it at all. Gasp!!!

        Problem is, there are PLENTY of people willing to talk about and show everything to teens. That shouldn’t happen. It should be the parent (the same sex parent if possible) that explains everything and has an open door policy. Nothing should be hushed or made to feel wrong for being asked.

        I gave DollFace a book in addition to the talk before she got married. I think it was called, “A good girl’s guide to sex.” I also had a “no shame” policy where she could ask me ANYTHING.

        Exactly. The church in general shames such a natural thing that leads to so much joy yet also darkness when it is not handled appropriately. There are so many sins that come from what gives us so much joy, so the people really have to step up and prepare their kids/teens for stuff like that.

        Yeah! Mom gave me a great talk and has never made me feel bad about wanting to talk to her. I still do, and probably always will. 💜 idk what I would do without her! Here’s the book she gave me:

        The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex: (And You Thought Bad Girls Have All the Fun)

        It’s written by a Christian author/blogger and she shares a lot of great tips, tricks, and facts that are extremely helpful. There may be a couple things that can be debated (such as how to groom oneself), but I would say everything else was so good to read before my wedding night 😂 Thank you, Mom!

        I love Sheila to death. We agree to disagree very seldom actually. It’s happened I think once. We both are wanting sex to flourish and be enjoyed in the marriage bed. When you said grooming I just cracked up because I could only imagine 😂


      • Purple Rose says:


        Omgoodness, I remember YEARS ago saying something like Christian wives should take care of themselves, put on pretty things for their men and please them because if they don’t, the ladies at the clubs will. Oh my, that did NOT go over well at all with my Grandma! 😂 Usually I could talk to at least her, but no. I basically got the dagger look and told that there is only ONE “position” acceptable. Basically if anyone does ANYTHING else that is a sin. There you go, that’s when I stopped talking to anyone about what I felt Christian women should do (except DollFace). Maybe that’s why I “delete, delete”?

        Well though that one position is taught to be the “one” position because of the positioning for pregnancy it is by far not the most fun nor is it the only one.

        I agree that the church has not done a great job at dealing with the issue of sex at all…not even within in marriage. If they are not willing discuss it within the confines of marriage how can they even remotely discuss it to the teens who are struggling with the temptations they face.

    They also discriminate against people with feet bigger than woman’s size 11. Stores like never have size 12 in woman’s shoes. That’s my problem. Guess we’re the opposite.

    Thanks so much for tagging me! I’m looking forward to doing it!

      Oh my goodness! That’s true. And it’s so hard to order online because you can’t try them on first. Ugh…

      You’re welcome Girl! Have fun with it. Can’t wait to see your answers. 💕
