  1. I would give it to my sister. We have been through everything together. She is the best!

  2. I would give it to a dear friend of mine. She will listen to me without judgement no matter what is wrong. She has a son who has an illness and I have been her leaning post whenever possible. Sometimes we are just going thru the phone because he is too sick for company. But she is a strong woman and deserves this:)

  3. I would give it to my mom. That may sound weird, but after all those silly teenage fights with her because of my rotten "teenagery" attitude, we came through it to a relationship where she truly is my best friend. There is very little I am not willing to share with her and the weeks we spend without seeing each other are always so long - and it's such a breath of fresh air when we are together! She is my best buddy and greatest confidante.

  4. I would give it to my best friend, mentor, confidante, accountability partner...Michelle. We Minister together on staff full-time & I don't know what I'd be like without her friendship. She is an amazingly Godly woman. Jmosty@FBCIrving.org

  5. I would give it to my one of my best friends who I have had a long relationship with, we are more like sisters and can know what each other is thinking before it is even said.

  6. Hum.. this is easy. My younger sister is my best friend. Blessed with a sister/best friend all in one. She always sticks by my side, good times and bad. She walks in faith, and teaches me so much. What a blessing.

  7. Hi!
    I would give it to one of my 3 guy friends as they are the ones that talk to me and associate with me the most. And they stick around even when I'm moody - which is a lot...lol.
    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win this! :)

  8. My best friend Deedee. I now live 5 hours away from my hometown, and she has been amazing to visit often, whether it's by train, a crowded bus, hitching a ride with a friend or renting a car to get here.
    We've been friends for 20 years this year. I think this would be a great "20 year anniversary" gift!

  17. Have you ever had a friend that you drift away from or lose touch with for a bit and then life slows down and you can pick up right where you left off? That's how it is with my friend Juillene :) We are both busy and don't live close by anymore but when we get together none of that matters!

  18. I would give this to a friend I have had since I was about 18. We became friends through our church, and she is amazingly positive and cheerful and faithful. She has endured some hard times in her marriage, and her faithfulness is an inspiration to me for my own marriage! Godly friends are like no others. :)

  21. I would give it to my friend April who is currently going through her second round of breast cancer, and even though things aren't so great for her, she has a way of deflecting to put the focus on everyone else and she is always there helping, advising and doing for her friends and family. She is incredible and a great friend. (and it is her birthstone!)

  22. I would give this to a friend that was there for me in my darkest hour.... She answered her phone at 1:00am 7 months ago and has been there daily for me ever since. I owe her more than words can say. She knows me better than I know myself :)

  51. I would give this to my best friend. She has been my best friend since before my first son was born and we stayed friends even when I had a bunch of kids and she didn't yet. She has always been there for me and me for her. Now we live 650 miles away from each other and I wish every day that we were closer. She has a little girl now and a baby on the way and I am missing it all. :( We talk on the phone, but it's just not the same. I would love to be able to give her this necklace to show her how much she means to me. :)

  53. Without a doubt, my friend of 25+ years, Lisa. I honestly can't think of a time that we have ever fought b/c we are both accepting of each other just the way we are. She is an inspiration to me during the hard times, and my celebratory partner during the good times! I am very lucky to have her in my life.

  54. I would give it to my sister. She's two years younger than I, and we've had a million ups and downs...but no matter what, at the end of the day, she's my sister and my best friend. We are constantly learning from each other; it's pretty cool.

  59. Wow... I have so many friends that I would love to give this to, but if I have to pick just one it would be my best friend, Charity. We have literaly been friends since the day she was born. We've been there for eachother through thick and thin... no questions asked! Always stuck by eachothers side even when we didn't agree with the others decisions. Never a foul word spoken or a fight in over 30 years. She is what a best friend should be and will be until the end!

  64. I would give it to my awesome close friend who is going through a trying time with her pregnancy. She has a year old daughter and is now 7 months pregnant with twin boys. She is a wonderful woman and mother and even though she is being blessed... there is a lot of stress that goes with it.

  65. I would give this to my sister amber. There are 11 1/2 years between us and it has been a blessing and hard to watch her grow up, especially when she made mistakes. She is getting married in July, which is bitter sweet. It has been like watching my baby grow up but through the last few years we have become so close. She is such an amazing young woman!

  67. I would give this to my bestfriend of almost 15 years who was my maid of honor, she was in the waiting room when my daughter was born and she was beside me during my divorce. We have been roommates, we have been babysitters, we have been bar hoppers, we have found our way to being sisters in Christ again. Even when I was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and shut myself away from the world she waited for me and when I was ready to face everything she picked up where we left off like no time had passed. We were just kids when we met and she has grown into an amazing women, mother and wife. She deserves as many good things as the Lord will grant her<3

  75. I would give this beautiful necklace to my friend who recently lost her 2 month old baby boy. It was very sudden and devastating for everyone. She (obviously!) is having a hard time getting out of bed every day. She does have a 2 year old daughter that she has been able to find some salvation in. I think this necklace would help brighten what seems to be many more dark days in her future! Good luck everyone!!

  82. if i won this beautiful necklace of yours, i would give it to myself. it isnt easy being a single mom of four girls all under the age of 9. by choice, i havent done much for myself in the last three years since my husband and the girls' father died. it was a tragic accident. though it, i have learned to make each day count whether it is good or bad. for i am my own friend; i can depend on myself; i am with me always, night and day. i am artist from birth and will never change that.

    good luck for everyone, including myself!!!

  87. I would give this to a good friend whom I just recently saw. We've know each other for 10 years and live in different states currently. However I know if either of us need someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, or even just an ear to complain to, we have each other. And sometimes even when life gets in the way and makes our communication nonexistent sometimes, when we do touch base again, it's like no time has passed. We will always be the same people to one another. I <3 her. Now I'm going to call her. Lol. :)

  99. I would give it to my niece who is in the middle of middle school girl drama and has been hurt at the hands of "Christian" friends as a reminder to her that there is a friend who is closer than a brother (or sister) and will never let you down, will never judge you, will accept you as you are but encourage you to be better. I would give it to her also as a reminder that family will always be there for her and she can always come home and be safe at home.

  108. I would say I would have to give this to my Friend Tosha. I've know her since 6th grade and whenever I've needed someone she's been there. She kept me sane through going through the CA CPS system and all the drama that came with that. To getting through high school and college. She's such a giving and honest to goodness Nice thoughtful person and those are hard to come by! :)
