Part Of Our Family!
Hello all! Last year we were about to become a family of 3. We found out that we were going to have a boy and that he was due in October. So we knew that we had to come up with a boy name. It was very challenging as I'm sure it is for many families. My husband and I would go back and forth on names. I would love one name and he would dislike it and vice versa. It was kind of discouraging because we could not agree upon a name. However, that changed one Sunday morning.
We were sitting in church listening to our pastor talk about his family vacation to Georgia. He was telling the congregation about what big fans they are of Chick-fil-A so they wanted to visit the headquarters. He was using this story to bring a point to his sermon. He spoke of how they didn't think they were going to meet Truett Cathy but they ended up meeting him after all.
As soon as I heard him say Truett I fell in love with that name. I leaned over immediately to ask my husband what he thought but he was already looking at me. He had this expression on his face that I could tell what he was thinking. So I whispered, “What do you think of Truett?” He said, “I love it,” with no surprise to me. So after church we got into the car where we were really able to talk about whether or not that was the name for us.
We both decided 3 things: We loved that our son would be named after someone who loved the Lord, we think Truett is a solid name for a boy and we absolutely love Chick-fil-A. So with those things being said we decided to name our son Truett. He is now 8 months old and Chick-fil-A will always be a part of our family.
