Who is your role model?

I had an impromptu phone interview yesterday and the reporter asked me about "role models". Who are the role models for today's girls? Good question. 

Role Model - a person who serves as an example, whose behavior is emulated by others.

I think that's a good start on a definition, but when I think of a role model, I think of someone I want to be like in some way. Yes, yes, we need to be more like Jesus - but when we find people in our lives or in the culture that "shine Jesus", then we get a great example of how to be more like Jesus ourselves.

But it got me thinking - who are the good role models in our culture for girls? Who "shines Jesus" out there in a way that makes you want to be like them?

I can't wait to hear your thoughts!

My role model??? My role model is my mom. She reads her bible every day and does a bible study, and she gives cookies to our mission trip. She has lots of friends. No wonder she does! :)
