    Survey: Have You Ever ____, Part 4

    Last year, we launched our first edition of the “Have you ever?” survey and followed up with a second installment in July and third in September. It seemed to go over well with you gals, so we thought we’d bring it back for another round!

    It’s a simple and fun setup that we encourage you to also play with your girlfriends during a slumber party or over lunch at school. It’s a great way to get to know little tidbits and facts about your friends that may have never come up before. In that same vein, it’s also an awesome conversation starter!

    Feel free to not only answer “yes” or “no” to the below questions, but to expand your answers on your favorites (or all of them!). So for the first question, if your answer is yes, tell us what you did and what it was like. If no, let us know if you’d ever want to in the future!

    Copy the questions below and paste them (along with your answers) in a comment.

    Have you ever…

    1. Spoken or performed in front of your church?

    2. Had a conversation in another language?

    3. Been to Bible school or church camp?

    4. Been on road trip?

    5. Eaten dessert as a meal?

    6. Been horseback riding?

    7. Been scuba diving?

    8. Given yourself a makeover?

    9. Volunteered for an awesome event or cause?

    10. Read an entire book in one day?
