Overcomers: Friday Five

Today is the Feast day of St Mary Magdalene, and as I've been pondering her life, and the inspiration she is I find in her a wonderful mix of struggle and devotion. She is both the woman who needed a deep healing and the woman who was declared (by many) to be the first amongst the apostles. She inspires me by the way she overcame so much to become so much. When I stop to think about the folk who do inspire me they are almost always overcomer's in some way or another.

With that in mind I bring you this Friday Five; List five people who inspire you to dare to step out into becoming more: Bonus question, a song or fictional character that inspires you to move beyond boundaries!

  7. I love that painting used in the post. Who is the artist? Does anyone know the full title?

    We're doing a sermon series called "The Artful Life" using different paintings each week and I'd love to use this one at some point!

  8. I heard from Sally via email that the artist is He Qi. Thanks! :)
