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.

To think that a couple of weeks ago, Jared Retkofsky was excited about getting a pay raise from $12 to $15 per hour at the Fort Worth moving company where he was working.
One phone call from the Steelers changed all that, and Retkofsky now finds himself manning the often-overlooked role of long snapper — a week after the job's importance became evident when an errant snap may have cost Pittsburgh a game.
Rather than hefting sofas, Retkofsky now must loft the football gently into Mitch Berger's hands on a punt, an extra point or field goal. Berger also serves as the Steelers' holder.
The skill required for a seemingly ordinary task became evident when long snapper Greg Warren went down with a knee injury during a 21-14 loss to the Giants last Sunday. Linebacker James Harrison was forced to fill in, and he snapped the ball over Berger's head for a safety that tied the score and set up new York's winning touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter.
Retkofsky, a former TCU defensive end, went to training camp with Pittsburgh as an undrafted rookie in 2007 but was cut before the season started. He returned to the Steelers in January after being released from the Seahawks' practice squad, only to be cut in June before training camp started.
The Steelers held a tryout with four snappers on Monday and decided to bring back Retkofsky, who is expected to keep the job the rest of the season.
Retkofsky was moving on from football, working for the moving company while exploring other careers, such as police work — and then the Steelers called.
