    Nobody. I may follow, but I'm going to first ask a thousand questions. Thankfully, my friends and family love me anyway.

    My husband's...most of the time! He gets so mad at me when I question him.

    God. I question everyone else, even if I keep the questions in my own head most of the time.

    I'm with Ginger Kay; even though there are times He must say, "Ah, Annie, Annie...why must you always do it the hard way?"

    I agree with Ginger Kay and Ann. I recently had a reminder that God is truly the only one whose lead I trust no matter what the outcome is.

    Richard, Sandy and Jenna but not necessarily in that order. I trust all 3 of them explicitly.

    Difficult question Lisa, definitely food for thought.

    I trust Norman 99% of the time, though I do question his judgement sometimes. At the end of the day I think we have to trust ourselves to make the right decisions & if we make mistakes hopefully we learn by them.

    The spirit - however one defines that. I know it doesn't lead us incorrectly.
