What does your faith mean to you?

“While it may seem cliche to say, it is my life, my way, and my hope. I start my day with four thoughts upon arising. Jesus I give you my will. Jesus I give you my first fruits, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I consecrate myself and my family to you, Jesus I place your armor over me and my family. Family is personal and communal.”
