What is your first name? My real first name is Betty, but I go by BJ.
What is your occupation? I’m unemployed and disabled.
What is your Answers.com username and how did it come about?
It is HisPowr4U (notice there’s no E in it!). I actually prayed that God would help me to think of a name that would point others to Him, and that’s what I believe He gave me.
Where in the world do you hail from and what makes this place special?
I grew up in Missouri, but since 1984 I have lived in Western North Carolina. I love the mountains here, and the flowers in the spring.
How did you discover Answers.com?
I was asking a question on Google.com – I have no idea now what the question was – and one of the first “answers” was a link to WikiAnswers. I was lovestruck.
What enticed you to join our community?
Soon after I started contributing to the site, I was invited to become a Supervisor. I had so much fun on the site, I jumped right in.
If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
I would be a kitten, because they are so precious and cuddly.
What is your favorite thing to do on Answers.com?
I love to re-categorize questions.
If you were inviting someone to join Answers.com, what reason would you give that person to become a part of our community?
It’s FUN! There are so many things available on the site now to do, and there are so many more groups than when I first found the site. If a person has special knowledge about any subject, he or she will be able to find a niche here.
What life accomplishments are you proud of?
I used to do short-term mission trips to Juarez, Mexico once a year with a friend of mine who had a youth group. I translated for the group sometimes because I was the only one who spoke Spanish. We did preaching, singing, and a lot of skits. I even taught the youth group how to sing “Jesus Loves Me” and “This Little Light of Mine” in Spanish.
I am proud of learning Spanish, although I’m not totally fluent. It comes in handy. Now I’m writing Bible questions in Spanish for the director of an orphanage in Guatemala. They do what they call “Bible Quizzing” in which the kids use questions (Such as who, what, when, where, why, how?) to memorize Bible verses.
