Unashamed by Tiffany Gordon

I am unashamed to say:

I love the CreatorΒ 

I love the Creator

I love the CreatorΒ 

I love the CreatorΒ 

I love the Creator

As my poem above illustrates, my Faith is a huge part of who I am. Many of you already knew that, but below is a list of things that you probably don't know about me.

10 Things You Don't Know About Me...

{Inspired by Kayleigh Fraser's Get-To-Know-Me Challenge}

**Shown right here:

1) "I love hard." Bobbi Christina once used this phrase to describe her grief right after losing her mother, the famous singer Whitney Houston, and it described me and my love for others to a T.πŸ’œ

2) I have a birthmark that looks like the Continent of Africa on my forearm.πŸ’œ

3) I once starred as Ola Ray (Michael Jackson's girlfriend from the Thriller video) in a 4th grade production of the song. I remember having to have a dance off for the role in front of the entire class. LOL, man, I was fearless back then! I also distinctly remember one of the girls who played a Goul in the production being upset with me because her boyfriend was playing Michael Jackson. Man, I had so many fun times in the 80s.πŸ’œπŸ˜

4) I was once teased/bullied for being "too quiet" & "too pristine" in high school. Thank God, I ALWAYS stood in my truth.πŸ’œ

5) Cooking is tedious to me. I do okay, but it feels like what I imagine picking cotton would have been like. I want the meal to be done right away. LOL πŸ˜‚ Although baking is fun for me. I usually have patience for people, but not much in the kitchen! lolπŸ’œ

6) I enjoy drawing portraits and painting them with nail polish.πŸ’œ

7) I enjoy creating dioramas for my dolls.

8) Kickball is my favorite sport! Man, I miss those days.πŸ’œ

9) I am a picky eater. My bff used to call me Picky Petunia because of it! πŸ’œπŸ˜Š

10) I love Red Bull. My favorite flavor is the new Pear-Cinnamon flavor that was just released for the holidays! πŸ’œ

    Oh, Tiffany....I loved getting to know you! First of all, I want to make sure you have been fed and aren't hungry...lol Then, I want to make dioramas with you! That sounds like so much fun! And then maybe we could paint a few pictures with nail polish. I've never done that, but yes! But I saved the best for last: let's Praise the Lord together and worship Him.

    So interesting and fun Ms Tiffany! πŸ˜‰πŸ’•πŸ˜Š. And I knew you would beβ€οΈπŸ’œπŸ’–

    I'd love to see the portraits with nail polish. Also the 1980s were the best. Just didn't realize it then. Great job my friend ❀️

    I would have paid money to see that 4th grade production of the Thriller Video! I love that video - just showed it to my kid this year! I bet that was fun to be a part of and super cute to watch! <3

  • Really enjoyed getting to know you better… #3 was amusing. I too, love The Creator… #4: well done for standing firm in God’s truth.

    Hahah fun @ you and your cooking. I’m getting better at it! We don’t have that flavour red bull yet.. sounds alright actually. Congrats on your top story and leaderboard recognition too!!! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

    This was fantastic Tiffany! Glad to get to know you better and I love the redbull pear, so I'll have to try the cinnamon version.

    Exceptionally amusing!

    This is just wonderfully you and you. Always love how you just are authentically Tiffany! None of the things surprised me at all really, but they were definitely interesting. Comparing cooking to picking cotton, made me laugh a bit too much and the birthmark thing is really cool! Picky Petunia! And yeah, the nail polish thing...bit odd and curious...but totally a you type thing. Also, Red Bull is disgusting (you know I don't like it, probably, as I wrote a poem a few months ago about it lol!) each to their own and congrats on a very lovely Top Story, I smiled from the start all the way through to the end and had a good few laughs! Stay you, always!

    Picky eater yet you enjoy Red bull. You are complex. This was great to have an insight into who you are. Thank you for sharing

  • Zara Blume4 months ago

    This was a fun read. We have much in common. I love the creator too, and I’ve devoted my life to letting Him create through me in more ways than one. To paraphrase Oprah, I live on my knees. I live in a state of submission, prayer, and receiving guidance. I loved the 80’s. I used to paint with nail polish too, but I’ve never heard of anyone else doing it. I like painting with all kinds of unconventional materials in addition to actual paint. Tea, coffee, wine and beet juice have been fun to experiment with. I too love creating dioramas. I would love to see your art work and hope you share it here.

    You are a sunny delight, I rather see you as a Sunny D drink. Sooooooo, Red bull is where you get all that peppiness. This is such a delightful story. Done in true Sweetiffany style. Stay sweet and hugs to doll babies. AH, Bobbi and Whitney, making sweet music for the creator, peace and love to all.
