M2M Scavenger Hunt


Okay, ministry wives.  This event is JUST FOR YOU!  Buckle down because I have what I hope is the most fun ‘get to know you’ game ever.   Let me tell you about it.

You know that I started the Woman Beside the Man feature for ministry wives a few months back before I accidentally on purpose destroyed my website.  Now that everything is back on track, I thought we would do a speed-friending of sorts (great idea, Mary Beth!) through the M2M Blogroll via an online scavenger hunt! 

Here’s how we will play:

1.  Below you will find a series of 15 questions.  Copy and paste them into a new post and answer each one.  NOTE:   Don’t stick to yes/no responses.  Feel free to elaborate on the answers.  Give us some good details so there will be more info to dig! 

2.  Prior to the actual hunt, you will publish your answers on your blog and then add that post link to the Mr. Linky provided ON THIS POST. 

3.  I will give you a couple of days to visit the girls who are playing along.  I will also be visiting during this time to compile a list of ‘treasures’ to scavenge. 

4.  I will create A QUESTIONS/ANSWERS POST where I will ask things such as, “Name a ministry wife who lives in a parsonage  and is addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper and Milk Duds.”   {Wait.  That’s me.  That answer doesn’t count.}  You will place your answers in the comments.  There may be more than one correct answer but each will be verified.  Also, comments will be hidden so those following behind you can’t scavenge off your hard work.  Not that anyone would do that.

5.  The first two people to correctly post the answers will win The Pioneer Woman’s new cookbook.    And no, The Pioneer Woman has no clue I even exist nor does she need my help in promoting her cookbook.  I just love sharing my favorite things and this is currently one of them that I have yet to order.  I’ll be getting mine when I get yours as a parting gift for myself. 

6.  I will place the button to this post in my sidebar so you can refer to it easily.   You are also welcome to grab the button for your own post.  I would give you code but since 1.  I don’t know how and 2. I’m too tired tonight to figure it out, I’ll have to ask you to right-click to save the image and then load it old school.  The deadline for adding your answers to Mr. Linky is Monday, November 9th.  The Scavenger Question/Answer post will open Wednesday, November 11th.  Answers will be accepted until 10 p.m. Thursday, November 12th.  Winners will be announced Friday, November 13th.  Sound like a plan?

7.  RULES:  There’s only one.  Since we are scavenging the M2M Blogroll your blog listing must be submitted by THIS FRIDAY if it does not already appear.  You can submit those through my contact pageby sending  your name, blog name, blog url, and husband’s area of ministry.  I’ll get all the updates done as they come in. 

So that’s it!  I hope ya’ll know I’m setting myself up here to look like an enormous doofus if no one signs up.  But it’s okay if you don’t want to play.  Never mind me as I crawl in the bed and suck my thumb for two or seven days.  

Without further hesitation, here are your questions…

The Treasures

1.  First Name.

2.  State and Country of Residence.

3.  Husband’s Ministry Title. 

4.  Length of time in Current Ministry Location. {IMPORTANT:  There are several of you who may not be in a current ‘official’ pastorate/ministry, etc.  That makes you no less a minister’s wife!  You play along, girlfriends, and let us pray for you!}

5.  Children?  If yes, give gender and ages.

6.  Number of unique  homes in which you’ve lived during your marriage. 

7.  Cook Sunday lunch or eat out?

8.  Typically on time for Sunday School or not?

9.  Favorite TV Show.

10.  Something you watch/like/do that you would never tell the church people. (Except now you just did…lol)

11.  Most annoying church-related pet peeve.

12.  One thing you need to throw away but can’t bring yourself to do it.

13.  The one food you can not live without.

14.  Parsonage or have your own home?

15.  Freak when the doorbell rings or always ready for a visitor?


Once you’ve answered these questions, please sign Mr. Linky below with a direct link to your answers, not your home page.  Any home page links will be deleted.  Questions?  Leave them in the comments and I’ll respond there as well.   

P.S.  If y’all think this is as fun as I do, we’ll do a Civilian Version!
