Bio. Challenge

What's the Challenge?   A 75 word (or less) bio. of who you are and why you live.

Who's invited to Participate? Anyone and Everyone 

What's the Point?  As an inspirational exercise to help more clearly define your strengths and waken up your aspirations.  Receive a prize for participating!!

Prizes you say?!  Yes, I do.  Email me your address (which will be used only for this challenge and not posted or shared in any way) to to receive something via USPS that I feel will complement the person reflected in the Bio!

How else can this challenge be utilized?

* This makes a great family project; either as individual bio's for each member or as
    a 'Family Bio'.  Then,  post it/them onto your family blog or scrapbook.
* This is also a great team/classroom exercise for the group

Here's what you do:

1) Write your own bio in 75 words (or less, of course) and post it in the comments section of this challenge.

     Simple enough,right?  We'll are some tips for you:

     You have something to offer your family, your community and, in extension, the  
     rest of the world.  What is it?

     *A bio. is no place for modesty.  Assess your strengths.

     *A bio is an optimistic way.  That means you DON'T LIE!  (it defeats
       the purpose, silly) but be grand in your description of yourself.

     *A bio. is not a list of goals but more a list of achievements and attributes of which
       you are proud.

2) Post your bio in the comments section under this challenge.  Note: comments are moderated so it will not post immediately but only after I've flagged it as appropriate.  And please keep in mind that this is a family friendly challenge so if your bio contains obscene language or inappropriate content (by mildly conservative standards) don't submit it for posting.

To see my bio. and the blog post that started not only this challenge but this entire Blog idea skip over to (it's the '75 words or less' post).

Good luck and have fun!!


  1. my name is sunshine & i was the hope of a much too young mother to bring a spring of life to her at some point, i went on to be rebelious & adventerous & found myself taking on motherhood with the same hopes. i am a struggler & a beleiver. I refuse to give up though at times I want to so much it is the same hope with which I was named that I keep on going. -Sunshine Steich

  2. My name is Julia, some call me Jules, most call me Julie. I am a single divorced mom of 5 with one angel. I may not be the professional that i thought i be in high school, but i have the most rewarding job of mom. My own family is fractured, i greatly miss my dad. I do find myself struggling with life at times, my kids are my backbone- they keep me grounded.
    -Julia Peddigree

  3. I was born with two questions on my mind: "how?" and "why?" Answering these questions have both defined and destroyed a marriage, a ministry, and any hope of contentment. -Steven Waring

  4. I am someone who cares about others. I learn from my mistakes. I am a person who strives to learn things he wants. I strive to be great and succeed in daily opportunities. I thank before taking. I give before receiving. I am a person who gives hard work. I am a person who thinks before talking. I am a person who is creative and intelligent. I am a person of good quality. -Christian Mayberry
