What is the “Mystery Blogger Award”?

“The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.” – Okoto Enigma

  3. I grew up on a Chile Pepper farm in New Mexico.
  4. (sorry adding an extra) I’ve been nominated to do these many times, but haven’t been able due to my work and course load. However, I dropped my second job and school so that I’d have time to write (Don’t worry I have a master degree. I just tend to go to school for the fun of it). 🙂


Only one post has brought me to tears while writing it. It is a post about my 1st grade teacher, “What I learned from a gentle hand squeeze.”


What advice would you like to give to your ten-year-old self?

You will make more mistakes that you can ever think of…. Nevertheless, God will still love you and He will give you what it takes to make it through.

What is your goal in life?

My goal is to live the kind of life that gives those around me a taste of what the Kingdom of God is like.

If they produced the story of your life, what genre would it be?

Drama… I have fallen flat on my face several times and got back up each time.

Are you happy with what’s happened in your life so far?

I’m happy where I’m at right now. I’m not proud of many of the choices that I made in the past. Nevertheless, I am confident that I can be the person that God created me to be, and fulfill my calling in life.

What Marvel superhero would you love to be?

I’d like to be a superhero that reflects my imagination and my heritage. There are no current Chicano superheros that I know of, so I’d make my own and call him Spider-Juan. 😉
