Wow...this is hard...I think I have a lot of people...is that bad?
1. John Ed Mathison: my pastor growing up although I am still processing all that I learned from him, his ability to lead people is astounding.
2. Brother Andrew: a man whose life spurs me everyday to live boldly.
3. Beth Moore: whose teaching helped me know the freedom I have in Christ
4. A.W. Tozer: a man who sought hard after God


Love your "Heroes" I will have to read the Hybels book. I agree, especially with church planting, loving the people you are trying to connect with is way more important than services, programs, etc. Can't wait to read more from you!

Well, I totally agree...with finding those "who are heroes before our eyes" and that Andy & Laura have so many opportunities to influence the lives of others...so glad you're girls are getting time with them there.

Mom and Dad recently did a Pastors/Wives training for church planters in the NorthEast (and Brent and I listened to the CD of the conference a couple of weeks ago when we were traveling). Mom did a session with the wives on her thoughts as a ministry wife. One of the things she said that has stuck with me these last couple of week is that we should encourage our kids to make heroes of people they know!
I agree with your choices and I, too, have been greatly influenced by their teaching/books. I've recently become very inspired/challenged by Francis Chan's messages as well. In a way, they are heroes to me.
That being said, I've decided to look for and listen to those who are "heroes before my eyes." Those who I can see live the life of Christ in a daily and authentic way are really the ones I want to imitate. It's more of a reality to me. Their lives are real, not just read. I'm praying for my girls to realize what a heroes Andy and Laura are. Today my hero is my husband, who strives daily to live the life of Christ.
