Tina’s Questions for Me:

Why did you name your blog as such?

“God’s kid” was a screen name that I used to remind me who I am.  Originally I wanted to name my blog something like “Walk by Faith” but apparently my ideas for blog names aren’t original; I spent a great deal of time trying to find a name that worked!

“God’s Kid Speaks” was a last ditch effort. At first I wasn’t thrilled with it, but now I believe that it’s exactly what God wanted.  It makes sense.  I once was The Girl Who Wouldn’t SpeakNow I’m a child of God who strives to be an open book to share the greatest message ever: the Bible and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

What motivated you to start your blog?

The desire to encourage others as I was encouraged by the strong men and women of faith that He put in my life.

What is your blog’s niche and why did you choose to focus on it?

Faith, hope, and love.  I chose to focus on these things because they’re important to me, and they need to be shared.

Who is your life’s greatest inspiration?

Jesus Christ

What is your philosophy in life and why?

I walk by faith, not by sight, because I believe that only God’s wisdom can be completely trusted and has the power to save and change lives. (1 Corinthians 1:18-31)

What song best exemplifies your current life situation?

This One…

“You never let me go, even when it hurts I know, It’s the way, the way, the way You’re making me like You.” ❤

If there’s one thing you want to change in yourself, what would that be and why?

Just one thing?  This ones tough. Well, I haven’t mastered patience yet!

Dog or cat?


If you would be a food or cuisine, what would it be and why? 

This one made me smile.  It’s definitely not a question I’ve ever pondered.  I guess I would be something unpopular! I’d have a better chance of survival. What do people really hate?  Liver?

What is your greatest aspiration for humankind?

I don’t have any aspirations for humankind.  This is God’s domain.  I ‘ll just keep pointing to Him, and let Him finish what He’s started. (Philipians 1:6)

How do you see your blog 5 or 10 years from now?

Oh man… I hope I’m not writing about my current struggles still!!!!  I hope and pray I’ve learned and grown, and that God uses what I’ve written to touch the lives of those who need to know His love.

  1. I love all your answers, Tina! And thanks for sharing the wonderful video.

    Since I don’t like liver either, I can only thank God that you are my sister in Christ and not my food at all. Lol!

    Keep inspiring! ❤️
