Giving God the Credit He is Due

by Abigail Endsley

(Houtson, TX, United States of America)

Unfortunately, I feel almost materialistic for deciding that Heather Whitestone is my favorite person mentioned on this page. Although, my choice was not made simply because she was beautiful and successful. No, my choice was made because of her attitude and humility.

Heather not only did the impossible by facing her disability and overcoming it, but she did it with hope, endurance, and placed the credit where it belongs, in God’s hands. We are commending many of the people on this page because of their great works in Deaf History, but really, as amazing as what they did was, they should not be receiving the credit.

Heather was not afraid to credit God for her success no matter what others may have thought of her. I’m sure that is one reason God blessed her so much. When people are not afraid to give God the glory it warms my heart. This is why Heather Whitestone is my favorite person from Deaf History (For now, at least).

Interesting!

I definitely agree that God is the one who should receive credit for the success of people. And I love Heather Whitestone’s attitude toward God and her honesty with her beliefs. Helen Keller is another who mentions God, but I know her beliefs are debated. I think your reason for choosing Heather is interesting and unique. You didn’t choose her for her success or beliefs about Deaf people, but instead for her public belief in God. I think that’s wonderful 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
