I am blessed with a heritage that I had nothing to do with but which has everything to do with who I am.

More than just my eye color and my size were determined by who my parents were. It is amazing to think of all the similarities between what my parents and Grandparents were and what I am today.


Before I was ever conceived my parents were missionaries in Northern Canada working mainly with children. How did my husband and I wind up on a Northern Reserve teaching children? My dad's father, whom I never met, was a principal in a Christian School in Russia. I have been a principal of a Christian School. So has my brother, and also my nephew. My other grandfather was an evangelist. My one brother is an evangelist, another is a missionary. Grandpa was also a writer, and of course my Mom was a wonderful story teller (see www.christiangrandparents.com/2010/04/grandma-susie.html ).Two of my brothers have written books. So has my niece and so have I.


Even my husband who did not come from a Christian environment, but is a minister, has just discovered that some of his father's family were Christians who were actively involved in a church in Scotland.


Is it all just genes, or is there more to it?


Could part of it be the prayers of our moms and grandmothers? They wanted us to carry on the heritage. I am sure they prayed specific prayers for us even before we were born.

And could it also be because God has promised blessings to the third and fourth generation of them that love Him and keep His commandments? What greater blessing could you ask for than to see your offspring carrying on your ministry?

Thank you Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa, Great Grandma and Great Grandpa for your commitment to the same God that we serve!
