  4. My hero is and always will be Lieutenant William Bush!! Yes, he is fictional, but no one can beat Mr. Bush. As you probably know, he is from the Hornblower series and I think he's the best thing since sliced bread. Even though he's second in command, he manfully steps up to every task that's put to him and offers support to those who need it in the most gruff and stern way imaginable. Oh, and all of his threats! I adore them.

  9. My hero is Elizabeth Prentiss. Such a wonderful, godly woman. In spite of trouble, hard times, grief and sorrow remained faithful to her Lord. She's was real. She sometimes wavered in her trust, she sometimes questioned but she always returned to a right view of Christ. That's why she's mine.

  12. My heroes are Jesus Christ and my parents. But this is an exciting little time to share about my FICTIONAL hero...Enjolras of the epic novel and musical, Les Miserables. <3 Abnormally valiant, angelically handsome, courageous and self sacrificing, entirely epic...he's the bomb. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. The compact mirror...! LOVE! :faint:

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, golly, this is amazing! I wish I were allowed to enter giveaways. But all the jewelry is so dizziating!

    I follow you!

  28. Ok. I was going to copy Anna with the Enjolras hero thing. Cause he IS one of my biggest hero's. But I'll be different... :P

    *ahem* to tell the absolute truth, I adore Laurie from Little Women. No, he isn't a valiant hero (which I normally prefer,) but he is just WONDERFUL. So sweet and kind, and adorable...:swoon:

    So yeah.

  33. I have so many heros...but the one that comes to mind at the mnoment is Will Smith in I Am Legend. (I'm staring at his poster on my wall....lol)

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is probably the coolest, most epic, awesomest giveaway I have ever seen! My hero is probably Rebecca Bloomwood from the movie 'Confessions of a Shopaholic.' I love how she is so addicted to shopping that she totally can't stop; but then in the end she sees that there's more to life than shopping/spending money. Also, I LOVE her little saying in the movie, "Do I need this? Do I need this?!?!" I use that tip every once in a while. =)

  41. Well I have too many REALLY AWESOME heroes, so I’ll just mention
    the first that pops to mind… hmmm…. Han Solo! He’s awesome because
    of his rash behavior, devilish handsomeness, charmingness, loyalty to
    his friends, awesome sidekick, cool vest, awesome smirk, and many
    other admirable qualities in a hero. :)

  57. My hero is Jesus Christ. He's always's there for me, he died for me. But my fictional hero would have to be Adelina from The Princess Adelina. Adelina leaves her Christian family to marry a prince, against her wishes. She goes through hard times yet stays true to God.

    God bless!

  110. Heroes? Wow, I have a lot of heroes. Heroes are to me, people who I admire greatly. One of my heroes would have to be Mary. The young Mary of the Bible who did not question God for even a moment when he shared His amazing plan with her through an angel. Unquestioning faith? Now that's a hero.

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is SOO exciting! I'd love to be one of those lucky (rather blessed) 26 girls that gets one of those! :)
    Hmm, well my name is Katelyn and I have a lot of different models. Some from past books, music artists, and just friends who make my world go 'round.
    I'll choose my friend, Caroline- She's my model because she's always cheerful. not a gossipy friend, like most girls this age, and is a strong christian, great blogger, unforgettable friend, and an awesome photographer.
    She's truly someone that will stick by you throughout all of lifes troubles, and will encourage you when times are tough. She's a true, true friend.

  116. My hero is my dear friend
    A true chum
    A godsend
    Mellow as the sun

    A strand of pearls
    Soft and serene
    Baby's soft curls
    The first snowdrop seen

    Rose-pink dawn
    Whisper of pages
    Sorrow deftly torn
    Oceans absent rages

    My hero is my little friend
    Pure as wing of dove
    My hero is my little friend
    Little known, goes by the name of-
    LOVE ♥

    A bit rough, but the best I could come up with!
    I adore your prizes!
    How did you get to 300 followers? I stagger at the amount. I only have 12!!!! Do you think you could give me some advice? Perhaps you could have a look at my blog and assess what I need to do to get more?

    I also added your button to my blog at:

  117. I love this idea! One of my biggest heroes would definitely have to be my grandmother whom I call Abuela. She's dealt with a lot of crap in her life and has taught me to be strong.

    She was born during the depression so right off the bat her life was not easy. She grew up having almost nothing and things just seemed to get worse from there. She got married to my grandfather and had six children, the youngest of which is my dad. Her husband was physically abusive and she finally divorced him when my dad was six-years-old.

    She was then left to raise six children on her own while working two jobs. That was in the time when no one would hire her because she was a single mother so she had to work hard to prove that she deserved the job she was applying for. The technique she used was to work the job for free for a week and if she did good enough she was hired. She managed not only to take care of her own family, but others as well.

    When some of her older children had grown up and moved out she gained a new one. My uncle had a friend who's parents had kicked him out of his home and he asked my grandma if his friend could stay for dinner. She willingly agreed and what was just supposed to be one dinner turned into three years of living with my grandma and my dad. We call the friend "the man who came for dinner."

    Then, a few years before I was born her oldest son who'd lived in New York died from AIDS in his forties. She told me that not a day has gone by when she hasn't thought about him.

    Abuela has taught me that God can get you through any trial or tribulation you face. Everyone loved and still do love her. I only get to see her once a year when we go to California in the Summer and when I'm there I love listening to her stories and words of encouragement for my life.

    Don't Give Up.

    Keep Pressing On.

    Never Lose Hope.

    Because God is always on your side.

  118. Hey there dear Polka-Dot :) Rockin' giveaway! *is blown away*

    My hero? Oh, gosh... well, I have several people I look up to, not all of them real people, but this one is... my mom. Honestly. My mom is the most amazing, godly, sweet, adorable, wonderful mom on the planet, and she's been a constant figure in my life, ALWAYS and has helped me and loved me and taught me every step of the way :) <3

    Again, amazing giveaway, girl ;)

  119. I put your button in my sidebar :D

    ReplyDelete
  120. I know this sounds cliche, but I don't care. My favorite hero is my husband. He waited a long time to marry me, and always tried to do what was best for me, long before we could be married. He is kind, patient, persevering, sticks to his guns, and most importantly, he loves God with his whole heart!

    ReplyDelete
  121. WOW! This is an AWESOME giveaway! One of my favorite heroes is William Wilberforce. He ended slavery in the British Empire against impossible odds. It took him years and yet he did it and no one thought he could!

  124. My absolute hero is Jesus Christ, and both my parents are heros to me, also. But I also really look up to Joseph in the Bible- both of them, actually. I admire Joseph, Jacob's son for the way he trusted and obeyed God even in the midst of unbearable circumstances,and Joseph, Mary's husband for the way he was willing to take care of Mary and be the foster father of Jesus. I've put the blog giveaway button on my blog, everystory-storygirl.blogspot.com, and I'm already your follower :)

  136. Good news! Mom said I can enter the giveaway after all! :-D

    Well, my real life hero is Annie Wolaver Dupre. She is the one who inspired me to seriously develop my talent for violin, and she is so bright, strong, and encouraging.

    I have a few fictional heroes, too. Alf Arless in Lark Rise to Candleford is so unselfish and devoted to providing for his family in such hard circumstances. And then there is Alexandra Bergson of O Pioneers! who is brave and doesn't care what other people's opinion of her when she is doing the right thing.

  142. My hero is probably C. S. Lewis. If I have a thought about something, it probably came from him. I just love his perspective on everything and the way he can put it into words.

  143. One of my heroes, or role-models, I should say, is James Stewart. (Yes, one of those amazing actors from the early-mid 1900's. <3) He only married once, never divorced her, like many other people do. He was just a great guy, and a talented actor. There aren't many people that can act better than he can, in my opinion. :)

  156. LOVE. (; Hmm.. my hero.. well, one person I have always admired since I started reading about her (when I was like... 8, I think?) is Corrie ten Boom. She was amazing. Also her sister, Betsie ten Boom. (And her father, Casper ten Boom... but that's three hero's... can I do that? Lol) They were three seriously amazing people who never lost faith in God. I know that I would NEVER be able to do what they did.
