Who Inspires You?

First, I have to say Congratulations to my friend/co-worker/fellow blogger, Molly Thornberg - Digital Mom Blog - on the birth of her 3rd child, a boy, Izaiah Austin Thornberg! He was born yesterday and weighed in at 7lbs, 6oz.

Speaking of Molly, she is our Web Director at Women of Faith. She knows I'm a blogger too and wanted to start "Women of Faith Wednesday" for the Women of Faith bloggers out there. So here we are, Day 1 and the Question is Who or What Inspires You?

It didn't take me longer to figure this one out - it is my parents, Bruce & Cindy Bradley:

They have been married 35 years this year and they inspire me all they do. I want Brian and I's marriage to be a reflection of theirs. No, they aren't perfect but they never claimed to be. They are always real and honest with their children and with each other. They have always put Christ first in their family and we were a family that prayed together. I hope Brian and I are as good of parents one day as they have been to Greg, Ryan and I. They are awesome grandparents too - I love seeing them with my nieces, Kiersi & Kayden. They inspire me to do more and not to settle. I'm so thankful for them - they are my inspiration.

I asked Brian who inspires him and he said his grandfather, who we all call Pop.

Brian says he inspires me because he is a great Christian man, man of integrity, honesty and is willing to help others without question. He is also willing to give people a chance. He is always there for our family in any time of need.

I hope you have people in your life who inspire you! Be sure to let them know how much they mean to you!
