Mia Michelle’s petition to the judge:  “I have chosen to surname myself by the name of Israel to signify that I belong to God, my heavenly Father.”

“One shall say, I am the LORD’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the LORD, and surname himself by the name of Israel.”

~ Isaiah 45:4

Thanks for your testimony, my beloved, Mia Michelle!

“Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.  Favor is deceitful, and beauty is van:  but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.  Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”  Proverbs 31:29-31
