The “100 Things We All Wonder About Nonnie Jules” Blog Tour

Today it is my great honor and pleasure to host a stop on Nonnie’s Tour. If you are not familiar with Nonnie Jules, she is the founder and president of Rave Reviews Book Club. She is the author of four books, she is an avid reader, and she is known for her no-nonsense honesty. She works tirelessly to promote Indie authors, and she is one of the most genuinely nice people that I know. I am thrilled to bring you this post, and I hope that you enjoy this time with Nonnie Jules.

Q: You are often referred to as “Our Fearless Leader.” Honestly, what is your greatest fear?
A: My greatest fear…well, believe it or not, I have a few and they all involve my daughters. But, I would have to say that the greatest of them all is something happening to them and me not being there to hold their hands, kiss their brows and tell them, as I constantly do, how much I love them. Because I was present when God lent those Angels to me, it would cripple me if I wasn’t given the opportunity to say goodbye when he called them home.

Q: WOW! Nonnie that was so beautiful and powerful but how can you carry the weight of that around each day? It has to be a really heavy cross to bear.
A: It is extremely heavy, Rhani. I know I often speak on letting go, and letting God as well as those God jobs I talk about. In my head, I know that my fears are God jobs, but when it comes to my daughters, my heart doesn’t know how to take my own advice.

Q: Does your husband have the same fears as you do about your children?
A: OK, now I’m going to make you all laugh here…my husband is a Pastor! Yes, I said it, believe it or not, I’m a Pastor’s wife! OK, now that all the laughter has subsided, I will have to say that I’m sure he has his fears about his daughters, they are his world, as well. But, my husband has a faith so strong that he does what he should do…he sits, he is still, and he lets God do his job. He’s smart enough to know, that is all that he can do, because none of it is in his power to change the course of any path God has laid out for our darlings. And you all thought I was the smart one. Well, what he feels hasn’t registered in my heart yet.

Q: We’re going to have to lighten things up a bit here. I didn’t know we were going to go down such a serious path with those questions, but Nonnie, thank you so much for opening up the way you did. Random question time: What is the one thing you did today that you truly regret?
A: I ate two blueberry muffins from Panera Bread, when I should have eaten none!

Q: Random question #2: I know we don’t wake up looking for trouble, but what is the one thing you think you might do today that you will regret tomorrow?
A: I’m going to eat that little slice of cake that will come inside the fish dinner that I’m going to get from the church later, because it’s Lent and the Catholics eat fish on Friday during Lent (I guess). And no, I’m not Catholic…I just pretend to be during Lent so I can eat their fish!

    Fish on Friday is certainly an upside of being part of a Catholic community! 🙂 You have a lovely family, Nonnie, all the lovelier for knowing that everyone is well-loved. 🙂 Thanks for having us all around Rhani 😀

    Good read, Rhani! Nonnie, your husband’s stoicism is similar to what used to drive me crazy about my husband. If one of my daughters was out on a date and the hour was growing later than I’d expected, I’d stay up worrying while his snores raised the roof. LOL! I gradually came to accept what he always knew—I can’t change anything.

      Rebecca, my girlfriend says the same thing…she says to me: “You fret over the wrong foods. If I’m going to worry about anything, it’s going to be that Double Meat Whopper with cheese all the way, that I’m getting for lunch today.” My tummy starts to hurt just hearing her say that. My goodness! Thanks for stopping by, Rebecca, and please, slowly back away from the Rocky Road.

    Beautiful answers about your daughters, Nonnie. Your love and passion for family really comes through. And I got a chuckle out of not being Catholic but eating fish on Friday. That is one upside to the Catholic community, especially when the fish is good 🙂 Enjoy your church service!

    These are such thoughtful questions and answers. They say opposites attract and your marriage is no exception. Together you make a powerful couple. You are on your own pastoral path doing for others so you compliment your husband very well in my opinion. Thank you Nonnie for sharing your life with us.

    On the blueberry muffins, I have my share of vices that I have to constantly work on because my husband brings temptation into the house all the time. lol

    Rhani thank you for bringing this tour to us today.

    Wonderful blog stop and meaningful questions, Rhani! I relate to Nonnie’s fears for her children. What has helped me tremendously is to realize they truly are not our children, they are God’s, and to know each day that God is giving “HIs angels charge” over them!
