Daniel is a Hebrew name that means “God is my judge.”  Daniel was described as having an “extraordinary spirit.”  He was a man of prayer and a man who was true to God even in difficult circumstances.

Thomas is the name of Daniel’s godly great grandpa who has left a legacy of a godly life upholding the truth.  The Gospels record two times when the disciple, Thomas, stated a willingness and desire to follow Jesus, even to death.  According to tradition the Apostle was martyred in India.  

May you too have an extraordinary spirit and faithfully follow Christ all your life
Caleb Andrew
Caleb has Hebrew origins and can mean wholehearted.  When all Israel trembled in fear outside the Promised Land, it was wholehearted Caleb and Joshua who said, “…do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land…”  And God declared Caleb had a different spirit in him and had followed Him fully.
Andrew is a family name that goes back for generations.  It has Greek roots and means “manly.”  The Gospels record that three times the disciple, Andrew, brought people to Jesus. 
Caleb Andrew, may you have a “different spirit” that wholeheartedly obeys God and brings many people to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Vera Grace

Vera means "faith" in Russian and is sometimes associated with the Latin word verus "true".  A thing is true, and therefore worthy of trust.

Grace is used to describe beauty of form or movement. In the Bible, it refers to God's unmerited favor, love, or help. It also has a sense of "gratitude."

May you demonstrate and be full of that grace and truth that came through Jesus Christ.
