My Family Tree

Faith
My Family Tree is one of the Cub Scout program themes for the core value of Faith. Here is what the program helps say about this theme:

“Faith means having inner strength and confidence based on trust in a higher power. Understanding one’s family tree, ancestors, and heritage brings stories to life of the strength and confidence of our family members. It also tells of their belief and trust in a higher power to help bring them safely to the United States. In years past, many immigrants traveled by boat. What faith they had in that boat that would change their lives!.”
