Motivational Monday: Who's in your Fave 5?

This week's Motivational Monday Fave 5 is my top 5 speakers who motivate me:


1. President Barack Obama (Duh!)--This remarkable man has not only captured the attention of our nation, but he has the attention of the whole world!



2. Olu Brown (Lead Pastor at Impact Church)--Olu is the pastor at my church and has a way of reaching all audiences when he preaches. If you click on the link you can listen to his sermons.



3. Maya Angelou--Maya Angelou is my favorite author and poet. She has so much wisdom and such a peace about her.



4. Michael Eric Dyson--M.E.D. is a dynamic speaker, and I often find myself grabbing for a dictionary when he speaks. His oration is just so eloquent and intelligent, yet down to earth. He makes you want to step up your game.


5. Joel Osteen--Joel Osteen is the famous pastor of Lakewood church in Texas. I love the positive messages he sends through his sermons. He has a calmness about him that just makes you want to listen when he speaks.

Who's in your Fave 5?

Hmm... I will have to think on this one. Maybe I should try to find someone to motivate me - I can't seem to get any work done. :)

Oh, I share your favs, although I am not familiar with your Pastor. Guess I will have to listen to some of his sermons. Maya Angelou spoke at my college graduation - that was incredible!

I share you favs to add to that, I have to put my Bishop, Bishop Glen A. Staples. He is a teacher preacher and I love it. He makes me feel that I too can become somebody great. Ed Young is another pastor that I enjoy listening too. Sometimes it's not only speakers but those who are willing to share info and kind words, that includes you. You are certainly inspiring me to do what I need to do and Christie Crowder as well. I have been inspired by the network of bloggers that I have ran into, both long lasting relationships and those that weren't.

And I thought you meant my cell phone as I just changed one person.

I'll agree with your number one being mine as well, President Obama.

2. My Grandmother. She's my hero. she raised me.

3. My kids and husband. I know, this is starting to sound generic.

4. Myself being a VP of Youth Cheerleading. I get to mentor at least 75/80 girls and I'm glad when I make a difference in one life.

5. My best friend Michelle. Even though she lives on the West Coast and I live on the East, she's just my guuurrrlll. My soulmate, my other part of me. Do you know what I mean?

Thanks for asking.

I am motivated by a desire to be a blessing to other people, more specifically to "fill at least one person's bucket daily."
