The Mathetes Awards

I was nominated for a Mathetes Award for Witness. Thank you Ebeth, much appreciated.
The mathetes Award is not originally from a Catholic, however, as the Church teaches, there is truth in all Christian faiths and I truly believe that. Being a disciple for Christ is a taking road less traveled, not being liked by everyone, and taking chances to make a difference.

Mathetes is the Greek word for disciple, and the role of the disciple (per the Great Commission) it to make more disciples. So the rules for accepting the award are such:
Winners of this award must pick five other "disciples" to pass it on to, and provide links for
(1) the originator of the award (Dan King of management by God),
(2) the person that awarded it to you, and then
(3) name and sites of the five people that you believe are fulfilling the role of a disciple of Christ.

Well, here are the five bloggers that inspire me:

Eric Scheske - The Daily Eudemon
Grant and Janet Carioni - The Carioni's Adopt
Alan Linton - Esgaroth's Journal
James Hahn - Real Life Rosary
Karen Hall - Some Have Hats

So who will you nominate?
