FaithWalk Clothing by William Renae
In today's world and in times past collaboration and partnering has been an instrumental strategy. Partnering helps us to grow, learn, change and exchange ideas. Even the Bible endorses partnering based on the scripture that says, "Where two or three are gathered, I am there."
I want to introduce to you a mother/son partnership, which currently launched a new clothing line. The clothing line is called FaithWalk. The new line is created to encourage others to save themselves and to take control of their own destiny.
Renae Parker Benenson is a Mom, certified Chaplin (spiritual listener and encourager), writer and co-founder of FaithWalk. William Marshall Parker II is a Son, entrepreneur, writer and co-founder of FaithWalk. Together they compliment each other and have found support for their individual and collective growth and development.
They started FaithWalk because they get it. They have figured out that their life is to get better spiritually, emotionally, financially, intellectually and physically it will be because they have prayed to God and believe that the Creator will equip them for the journey and fill them with unfathomable power to be and to do more than they can ever imagine.

FaithWalk will be more than a clothing company. We are a movement. It is a movement to advocate, build, teach, write, plan and create those things that are of vital interest to us because no one else has been capable of doing it to our satisfaction.
We stretch across the globe and come from every age bracket, culture, economic status, gender and spiritual tradition. We believe beyond belief in a higher purpose that resides in us. Everyday we strive to give birth to that purpose. We do not stop being and doing until that which is inside of us comes to fruition. Why?
FaithWalkers see clearer. We realize in going our own way it is not a selfish act but an act of care. It is an act of good stewardship toward nurturing the only true gift we have, the gift of self. A precious gift, from Spirit, that we were put on earth to offer to others. When we are faithful to ourselves, our dreams, our ideals and bucket lists, we do not resent others. We do not give begrudgingly, build houses that are environmentally unsafe or inappropriate. We do not ask people to work longer hours for less, and to suffer poor decisions made without protest. Divided no more… we are challenging old paradigms about selfhood and service.
FaithWalk emerged because of ordinary people who have decided to do extraordinary things by caring for their authentic self. Though it can be a risk, we continue to do what we do to stay alive, inspired and encouraged by an ideal, vision or faith not only for our own sake but for those who come behind us too. We faith walk daily to move toward the place where our “deep gladness meets the world’s deep need.” In spite of threats from systems, establishments or people who love us but don’t understand us, we save the life that is our own.
