In the spirit of keeping it real–I’ve included a smattering of my own four kids’ answers.

  1. What is your first memory?
  2. What are five words you’d use to describe yourself? Curious. / Child #2: Artistic. Playful. Reader. 
  3. What is one time you felt really great when helping someone? I liked helping with that big Thanksgiving party we threw–the one where all those people ended up staying for dinner, too. / Helping Oliver carry all the bags into the house.
  4. If you could invent something that hasn’t been invented yet, what would it be? A cake machine that makes cakes in five minutes! 
  5. What’s one thing someone has said to you that made you feel great? What do you wish someone would say? …I don’t know, but it was something great. / I like your drawing. It’s really cool.
  6. If you could be one character in a book, who would it be? I would be Benny from The Boxcar Children! / I would be a dragon in How to Train Your Dragon.
  7. What’s one of your favorite things about God? I love what He does for us and what He created. / I love that He forgives us when we do bad things. 
  8. If you could take lessons to learn anything, what would it be? I would learn how to do kung fu! (kick added for emphasis) / I don’t really want to learn much, so… / I would have to choose between hang gliding and sharpshooting.
  9. What’s been the biggest thing on your mind this week?
  10. What is one thing you really hope is in heaven? I really hope there is a rainbow slide without edges that ends in whipped cream with strawberries–and it doesn’t get too hot or too wet. / I hope we get to walk with God in heaven.

And don’t forget, “How can I pray for you this next week?”
