In our Western Culture, we usually choose names for our newborn babies because we like the sound of it, or we name them after a famous person, or even after an object or a place because we want to give our child a unique name.
No matter how we came up with our child’s name, names have meaning, and our name can affect who we become as a person, and how we live our life. This isn’t just something from “Bible times” but for all time.
Join Laura Diehl as she talks about this unusual topic, in connecting our child’s name with how their life was lived. She will also take it further by talking about the meaning of our own name, and how it can encourage us as a bereaved parent, that we still have purpose and destiny in our lives.
