I choose to share this award with:

"Monday Through Sunday" :~My big sis. I love this girl so much, she's amazing! She lives in florida, which sucks, but ya know...She is a mom to 5 beautiful children, and she herself is incredibly gorgeous inside and out. I love and miss her like crazy! She is so much fun and is spunky and cool. She's one of the few people in my family I can discuss God things with and not feel stupid or threatened, she actually listens and believes me when I tell her that God has spoken and put things on my heart. I love her so much, go check out her blog!

"Desperation Internship Blog" :~My DI's!!! Wow. What can I say about my DI's? They are incredible people! In the almost year that I have known them, I have learned so much and grown so much closer to God because of their guidance and wisdom and love. There is one in particular that I am closest with...her name is Aly. I met her at _tag 101 and we just clicked. I have been in her small group since september and seeing as how I was the only one who ever showed up; we grew incredibly close. She is my sister, we are so much alike and share a special bond. Her heart is for missions and to touch the world with Jesus name. She radiates beauty, love and gives me wisdom and hope to live by. She's taught me so much about God and life, and helped me through some of life's toughest times and wounds. She keeps me accountable. I honestly don't know where I would be without her. We can talk for hours about God things and it never gets old. We both write...a lot, way too much, lol. We share what God speaks to us about ourselves, and each other. I love this girl with all I am. Well there are 16 DI's, all of them are different and even though they are young, you can for sure learn something from each one of them, they're amazing!

"Everyone Overcome" :~My youth pastor, Brent. He is incredible! You may be asking yourself as you visit this blog, why did this get an award?! Well, he just started his blog this week, so cut him some slack and just trust me. I am completely going off of the person I know him to be. He is full of wisdom and his words are so anointed and inspired by the Holy Spirit. He is full of life and is so much fun to listen to and be around. I love the conversations we have about life and God, he has helped me through some of life's toughest times. I don't know where I would be if not for _tag and pastor brent, God saved my life through _tag. I have learned so much in the 4 years i've been going to _tag, and I know there will be more to come on his blog...just keep checking.

"The Coldiron" :~My big brother. Our relationship has been somewhat distant, seeing as how he has lived in alabama for a good chunk of my life and the years that I know how to form good relationships. But that has been changing. We have been talking on the phone and over facebook and stuff and are beginning to develop a closer and deeper relationship. I'm going to visit him here in july...if I can get time off that is. WE do have something in common, we both love to read! Everyone hates it cause the question he always asks when he calls is, "so what are you reading?" but I love it cause it actually gives us something to talk about since i'm always reading a book. =) He's a pastor and an incredible man of God and a great husband and daddy, I love Him so much. HIs blog is mainly pictures, but its still great.

"Notes From The Field" :~Tom Davis. He's one of my favorite authors and bloggers. His book, "Red Letters: Living a Faith That Bleeds" totally transformed the way I see the world and other people and the least of these. He writes with a flavor that will make you smile, be horrified, and weep for the injustice that is so prevailant in our world today. Go read his blog, and his books!

Kasey, hey I'm Hannah; I live in COS as well -- work at Children's HopeChest near the Shops at Bgate. : ) Tom Davis (my bro-in-law) forwarded your blog link to me this morning; that's how I found you... and from there I found your sister's blog. Cool, huh. Well, Tom is in England right now speaking at a missions conference, but he wanted me to thank you for the book plug and the award. : ) You're a doll!
Well, have a wonderful day; check outside, you can see the AFA parachuters floating around.
Blessings and joy your way!

Smiles with joy.
