He blazes a clear way through every thicket and woods, and then softly says, ‘Follow me. Let’s go on together, you and I. His feet have trodden down smooth a path through every experience that comes to us. He knows each road, and knows it well: Everyday paths He has trodden and glorified, and will walk anew with each of us. The only safe way to travel is with Him alongside and in control” — S. Faith “Faith is taking God at His word. Faith is not belief without evidence. It is belief on the very best of evidence–the Word of Him ‘that cannot lie.

Stephen was a grantor in the sale of the Pettus estates in see his signature on the deed to James Bray, Jr.
I concluded that the sale took place after Stephen came of age.
The presence and practices of Native Americans and the landscape also played a role in Southern culture. The climate is conducive to growing tobacco , cotton , and other crops, and the red clay in many areas was used for the distinctive red brick architecture of many commercial buildings. People[ edit ] In the time of their arrival the predominant cultural influence on the Southern states was that of the English colonists who established the original English colonies in the region.
The new theory, which is based upon good evidence, both oral and written, has Thomas Pettus, immigrant, marrying Ka-Okee, daughter of Pocahontas and Kocoum, as his first wife about
