Q+A (ask me some questions) || THIS IS MY 75th POST + CHRISTMAS IS IN 35 DAYS!!!

I've been wanting to do a Q&A for quite a while, but I wanted to wait until I got more followers. I have a total of 51 followers now (blogger, email, and blog lovin), so lets do this Q&A!!
You can ask me any kind of questions (about me, my life, my blog, my favorite ice cream flavor). Ask me anything!! ANYTHING! I may not be able to answer all the questions, but I'll do my absolute best! :)

Today is my 75th post!!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!? I've almost been blogging for A WHOLE YEAR!!! (January 7th is when it all started) I'm still not sure what I'm doing for my blogiversary, but I'll do something really fun!!!

Christmas is in 35 days!! WHAAAAT????

To me it feels like we just had Christmas, but it's been a year. AND CHRISTMAS MUSIC IS ON THE RADIO NOW!!!!! I love Christmas music!! Well, actually I just love Christmas!!! And I'm almost finished Christmas shopping. *sighs with relief* For a while I was really freaking out because my family always buys Christmas presents really early and I hadn't even begun my Christmas shopping, but I'm almost done now. *wipes sweat from forehead*

Do you have any questions you'd like me to answer? PLEASE ASK AWAY! Can you believe that Christmas is in 35 days? Have you started Christmas shopping yet? What is your favorite Christmas song?

Back in July I wrote a letter to President Donald Trump and his son, Barron Trump. I was kind of nervous sending them out 'cause it was going to the White House and stuff, but I got a reply one day in October! Daddy and Mama brought it in the room to me and I did everything in my power not to rip it open. When I finally got it open, I saw a beautiful stationary letter from Melania Trump (I guess she was writing for her son, Barron)

 Ms. Madelyn,
The President and I received your recent note. We appreciate you thinking about our family.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
Melania Trump

I was pretty excited! I didn't expect to get any more letters, but sure enough I got yet ANOTHER letter from the White House! This one I was even more excited about. IT WAS FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!! His letter was a little longer and more personal.

Dear Madelyn,
Thank you so much for your thoughtful letter and prayers. It is an honor to serve as your President. I always enjoy hearing from young readers like you.

With your faith and determination, I have not doubt you can do anything to which you set your mind. Think big and dream even bigger! You are the future of our great Nation.
May God bless you, and may God bless the United States of America.
Donald Trump

It was SO NEAT getting letters from the White House and it will be something I'll never forget!

Also, I want to say "Happy Veterans Day" to all of the veterans. I thank every one of you so much for living so selflessly and bravely for our country. May God bless you all.

Have you ever written a letter to somebody important? Did you get a reply? What did they say? Do you know anybody that was/is in the military?

Book Review || Just Friends: Guarding Your Heart for a Wonderful Someday by Mike Ray + Cary Schmidt


Just Friends
By Mike Ray and Cary Schmidt
264 Pages
5 out of 5 Stars



What is this thing between guys and girls? Do we call it Dating? Attraction? Interest? We all know it’s there, but no one really knows what to call it, and for some strange reason everyone is afraid to talk about it! So what do you call it? You’ve probably said it. “We’re just friends!” Sometimes you mean it; sometimes you mean something a little stronger, but a bit harder to define. Whatever you call it, it’s time to understand a reasonable and biblical approach to guy/girl relationships. This book will help you protect your heart as you journey through the dangerous minefields of young emotions and early attractions. And it will help you understand the biblical principles that will ultimately lead you to true love and a “wonderful someday.”


"Just Friends" is a GREAT book for teenagers. When I first picked it up I thought it would be boring, but I honestly REALLY enjoyed it and it helped me out a lot. I read it a few weeks ago and I'm thinking about reading it again soon to take notes (That should tell you how much I enjoyed it!).
I loved how it focused on being "Just Friends" and having a godly relationship with the opposite gender instead of having a relationship of feelings, especially when you're still too young to start a serious relationship with that person.
The book also touched on being a godlier person and becoming the right person for your future spouse which I really enjoyed reading.
Like I said earlier, this was a great book and I recommend that every teenager read it.
Have you ever read this book? What book have you read recently? What book are you currently reading?
