New Name

 

New Name


”Names are a significant part of our identity. They represent our heritage, our tribe and give us that deep sense of knowing who we are and where we come from. 

I’ve never understood this to be more true than on the day that I adopted my gorgeous daughter. 

It was clear that her world became that little bit more focused and her new last name sealed her identity. She didn’t have to battle with the feelings of uncertainty or not quite knowing who she really was any more. It felt like home. It felt safe.” (Matthew Macaulay)

“When we trust him, he adopts us and gives us a new name, a new identity, a new sense of affirmation and love.” (Justin Gray)

”How we see ourselves has a huge impact on how we understand God. When we see ourselves as daughters, sons, heirs to God’s royal fortune, our perspective on everything else changes.  Our story and our song are forever different.” (Mark Alan Schoolmeesters)
