Your Faith and Discipleship

Who, or what, has been instrumental in the shaping of your religious faith?
Off the top of my head, my list looks something like this…
Sunday School Teachers
Donnie Goodwin – Cousin and Youth Minister
Marc Lents – Director of "From the Heart"
Dave Lemley – Youth Ministry Mentor
Richard Hughes – Religion Professor at Pepperdine
Ronald Tyler – Religion Professor at Pepperdine
Michael Gose – Great Books Professor at Pepperdine
Scott Lambert – Campus Minister at Pepperdine
Erin Himes – Wife and Friend
Brice Tidwell – Friend
Jim Settlemoir – Friend and Deacon at Glendale CofC
In no way is this a complete list.  There are countless people, books, musicians, etc. who have shaped who I am spiritually, and the more I think about it the more people pop into my head. It really is a humbling and interesting exercise. However, with that said, perhaps a more humbling question is whose faith have YOU been instrumental in shaping?
Christ teaches that we are to go make disciples of all nations.  Those people above took the time to make a disciple of me.  I hope I'm returning the favor.
