Trust in God ; Belief ; Trust
Faith is by hearing and hearing by the word of God
It’s also: Me
I am Faith. It’s a big name to live up to. People, especially Christians are always telling my how beautiful my name is. I agree. Of course, I can’t take credit for it. My mom gets the kudos for that one.
There have been times when during an introduction I actually get pulled into a happy dance because it just makes people so excited.
I love Jesus, so it works out well. I often think how weird it would be if your name was Faith and you were not a Christian. Would you change your name?
Thankfully, I don’t need to change my name. I am a Jesus follower, a saved by grace sinner and I am full of faith.
On my mission trip to Uganda, a young man (age 16- lives in orphanage) introduced himself to me (Henry) and then I told him that I was named Faith. He smiled the biggest smile and said “then I trust you.” He then wanted to explain that in Uganda Faith means trust. I told him it pretty much means the same thing in America. You would have thought he hit the jackpot. He face beamed that this one word had the same meaning even across the globe.
I am married to my high school sweet heart and we have six children. We had our first four in the first five years of marriage. Then we had a 21-year gap before we adopted the first time. Then we adopted again four years after that.
We are a big family (at present we have 11 grandchildren). We are a diverse family (trans racial – with our children and some of the grandchildren) and a multi generational adoptive family (our daughter has four adopted children).
We feel very blessed to be the parents of our children and grandparents to the littles. We pray that our legacy will be one of love and of course Faith.
