Military Spouse "Where I Find My Strength"

Wives of Faith MilSpouses Rock

Our family motto is "Faith, Family, Friends."
It may seem a little cliche being you can find the phrase printed on almost anything at most gift shops.
When we were stationed in Alaska, I found a beautiful print with this phrase written on it.  I liked the way it looked, and I liked that it had Scripture references as well.  I find my strength in the following, and when I keep it in the correct order of importance, things in my life run smoothly.

Faith
"...I will show thee my faith by my works."
James 2:18

Family
"...And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord."
Isaiah 54:13

Friends
"...that a man lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13

Your family motto sums up JOY and that's good.
