Mathetes Award

(Ed. note to my eldest son: read the award carefully, using phonics if necessary, for it is the Mathetes not the Math-letes award, as you might have thought.)

Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. In the spirit of this award, the rules are simple. Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to. As you pass it on, you mention and provide links for (1)this post as the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God) and, (2) the person that awarded it to you.

Thank you, Barbara, for choosing me to be a part of the incredible women you selected. I am truly humbled to be counted among them.

To narrow down, to only five the people, those whom I view as disciples is difficult as there are many more than 5 out there. In the spirit of the award, however, here are my five:

Becky at Wild At Heart Family

Margaret at Minnesota Mom

Mary at Owlhaven

Dawn at Holy Angels Mom's Group (who should just go ahead and bring the Mom's Group online already-because I know that she has nothing better to do with her time...)

and Katie at The Foo Hath Said (which would be the name of her blog if she would only start one...c'mon, you know you want to)

These women live their faith out in a quiet, humble way that draws people to them, while at the same time, keeping their focus on Christ and His ways.

I'm so humbled. Thank you for your kind words. You are such an inspiration to me. I love to check your blog each day and see what's happening on The Ark.

congratulations Jane. You really deserve this award. I know it is hard to choose just five but I have found that many others I wanted to choose have been picked by others. Hopefully this will just get around too all the good Christian blogs eventually.

Clearly I LOVE the name of my new blog! Is it okay that I thought it was the math-a-lete award too?? Obviously I thought that the young football player in the house was being awarded for both his mathematical ability and his talent on the field!
