Get To Know Me Tag

Good day t’ ye! Faith over at Stories by Firefly so kindly tagged me and so I am honoured to do so! :)
Vital Stats…
Name: Raechel (Pronounced the same as ‘Rachel’)
Nicknames: Rae (not hard to guess! That’s partly why I was named Raechel with the extra e, so I could be called Rae :)), Ren, David/Jonathan (hehe), Lady Rae,  and some more personal ones by my family that I am not quite willing to share. :D
Place of Birth: Here in MN
Best Friends: First Best Friend hmmm….I guess it would’ve been a girl who my Mum watched (she did a sort of daycare when I was little) and we were friends with.
Award: Haha, this picture (taken from Pinterest) just makes me laugh – it is the award I could’ve won in my childhood days. XD But otherwise, no, I don’t think I’ve won a ‘real’ award.
This is an award I could've won in my childhood. ;):
Sport:  Softball. I don’t play sports anymore, but softball was my passion when I was younger.
Real Holiday: Okay, does this mean ‘vacation’ or like a celebrated holiday? Not that I’m really sure what the answer would be to either of those options…the one big “vacation” we went on when I was younger was going to Mt.Rushmore, but I hardly remember any of it because I was so little.
Concert: Go Fish. :)
Film:  “Wives and Daughters”, “North and South”, “Persuasion”, and the How To Train Your Dragon movies. :)
TV Shows: “Downton Abbey” (we forward/skip some things), “Call the Midwife” (first three seasons at least, the fourth wasn’t quite as good because a certain reason), AFV, and I don’t know…I don’t watch a lot of TV shows. I like the HTTYD episodes :D
Color: Hot pink, army/forest/emerald green (lots of greens XD), and turquoise.
Song: Um…just about any of TobyMac’s or Tenth Avenue North. My favourite right now? I’m enjoying “It’s Not Over Yet” by For King and Country. I’m also enjoying some of the songs from the Big Band era – especially “In the Mood”. And I know there are others, but they’re not coming to mind right now.
Restaurant: Culver’s. And the Steak and Shake, except for the fact that we don’t have them in MN. Utterly sad thing that is.
Books: Too many!!!!! All books by Tessa Afshar and Chuck Black’s fiction books are always favourites, and I love the Ilyon Chronicles by Jaye L. Knight, The Wings of Glory series by Sarah Sundin, “Silk” by Linda Lee Chaikin, all of Alicia Ruggieri’s books, “Not Abandoned” by MacKenzie Morganthal, “Redeeming Love”, and so so so so many others!
 Feeling: Umm… a little sore and tired. :)
Single or Taken:  I’m single, but I love Faith’s answer of ‘reserved’ – waiting for God’s right guy for me. :)
Yes, I've decided to follow the lead of evil overlord I admire, and lead my own Empire.
Eating: Nothing. It’s morning and I haven’t eaten yet – I’m oil-pulling right now. :)
Watching: Just the computer as I type :D For a show…my family and I are going through season 6 of Downton Abbey again.
Wearing: My Pj’s. :) A long pink shirt with cats on it and turquoise pants with penguins on it. ^.^
Want children: Yes. My own and adopted children. :)
Want to be married: Yes – God willing, of course!
Careers in Mind: Missionary, Wife, Mom, writer on the side.
Where you want to live: In the future? With my hubby and children, provided I have that. Wherever that might be. :)
Do You Believe in…  
God: Absolutely. He’s my everything.
Miracles: Yes.
Love at first sight: I don’t know…I believe love includes feelings, but it’s also a choice we make daily.  I’m not saying love at first sight can’t happen, but there should be a bit more involved to find out if you really love someone before jumping into marriage right away.
Ghosts: I believe demons exist, but not the ghosts that everyone imagines persay.
Aliens: Well, I believe that we’re all aliens in the fact that we’re all strangers in the land, awaiting our home in Heaven. :) But otherwise, no.
Soul Mates: Hmm…I believe God has the right person picked out for us, but I don’t know that I would call it ‘soul mates’.
Heaven: Yes.
Hell: Yes.
Kissing on the first date: No. It is my personal belief that kisses are very special, and I am saving my first kiss for my future husband.
Yourself: Well, Arthur says I must, so yes. ;)
So there we have it! Rather fun, huh? I tag anyone who wants to do it! :) Leave me a link in the comments to your post if you do it so I can read it :)
Thanks again Faith for tagging me!


I am a peculiar treasure who is passionately in love with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I love writing, reading, knife/tomahawk-throwing, and letter-writing, among other things. :)

  1. When I saw that Faith tagged you I was really looking forward to reading your answers! And I love the picture you used for the “single of taken” question, as well as the way your name is spelled. ;)

    1. :) Hehe, I’m glad!
      No, I agree – there isn’t an obvious connection there! :D My kindred spirit and I call each other David/Jonathan to represent David and Jonathan’s friendship in the Bible. We wanted a godly friendship nickname thing to use – like Anne/Diana from Anne of Green Gables. :) So that is the explanation! =)
      Thank you for commenting!

      1. :) I wondered if that’s what you were going for. I had a close friend in high school and one of the teachers took to calling up Pete and Repeat because where one was, there was the other. Lol

  2. I really enjoyed reading your answers, Raechel! Thanks for doing the tag. :)
    I love Tenth Avenue North!!! And for King and Country…and TobyMac. :P Okay, I have to ask (call me nosy if you like. It won’t be the first time. xD) Where did you get a nickname like David or Jonathan?

    1. Thank you for tagging me! :)
      Yes!! Good music all around! :D Haha, I don’t mind your asking at all! It’s what my kindred spirit and I call each other to mirror David and Jonathan’s friendship in the Bible :) Kind of like “Anne/Diana” from Anne of Green Gables. :)

  3. Haha, I laugh that three of the nicknames you gave are ones I call you. XD You’re my Ren!!! <3 So I knew all your answers before I read them. XD Except I never knew y'all went to Mt. Rushmore! Very cool! :D Also, I want to come and borrow your Pj's because they sound utterly adorable!! XD love ya, dearest <3

    1. Hehe, you know it! I love the nicknames we have for each other! :D <3 I knew you would! :D Haha, yep, we did. The main things I remember is staying in a cabin, seeing buffalo (or, Bison as there are actually no buffalo in the states…weird), and the building made of corn. XD And other blurry things – 'twas a long time ago! XD
      Hehe, okay, come on over!! I'll share anything with you – especially if it gets you here! ;) XD Love you too! <3
