Faith… hope is its brother, trust is its sister, belief is its partner and reason is not required. ~ Christine Sternfels
I was raised Catholic. I married a Jewish man. I have friends who practice Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Mormonism, Paganism, Taoism. Some are Christian, Protestants, Baptists, Anglicans, Agnostic and Atheists. Today, my husband, daughters and I are Christians. I don’t go to church all the time, but I try. I can’t call out quotes from the bible, but I own one and read it. I am not religious, but my faith in God is steady most of the time. I’d be lying if I told you my faith can’t be shaken. It has been tested over the years, but I can’t say I’ve ever lost my faith in God.
I am human – not perfect, not without sin and definitely not without fault. Love and compassion are the baseline of my actions, and when you read about the message that different religions have, it boils down to those two words.
Faith is an essential part of my life.
