The Bible speaks of heroes of the faith, such as Abraham, Moses, and Rahab (Hebrews 11). These are ordinary people whose faith in God gave them courage to step into the unknown, fight for freedom, and seek a better way of life.
U.S. history has its own faith heroes whose faith in God helped them persevere in their pursuits for better things. As a result, they sought improvement not only for themselves, but for their communities and country.
We highlight some of these figures in our “Remember” section, including Mary McLeod Bethune, Harriet Tubman, Richard Twiss, and others. This section exists because we believe their contributions should be celebrated with pride and as a source of encouragement.
Faithfully Magazine’s “Faith Heroes” line celebrates these Christian leaders with educational and inspirational products. Among the items we’re producing are bookmarks, mugs, t-shirts, and eventually a book of short biographies on these figures.
The first item we released is the Mary McLeod Bethune Faith Hero Bookmark. This attractive bookmark features a key quote from the educator and activist on the front and brief biography on the back. The glossy bookmark is practical and educational, inspirational and a great reminder that “without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.” In our shop, you’ll find similar inspirational bookmarks featuring Nannie Helen Burroughs, Ida B. Wells, and Fannie Lou Hamer (coming soon!).
