Brenden was born on May 5, 1999. Daniel and Lydia had been placed in our home as foster children, but at the time of Brenden’s birth they were not in our home, they had been moved. It was a few weeks after he was born that they were returned to us in very bad shape.
But, when I was pregnant with Brenden the Lord revealed to me that this baby was going to be a man who uses his hands. We knew right away that he was a boy. So, as I prayed for him daily, I began to think of Jeremy’s other brother Brandon. Brandon is very gifted with his hands, he is a hard worker, a wheeler dealer, and he has the ability to see things and fix them. It seemed as if the Lord was telling me this would be the type of man my next son would be. So, I decided to name this baby after him, with a little twist to the name. Instead of Brandon, we decided to call him, Brenden.
His middle name came right with his first. Joseph the earthly father of Jesus, was a man who worked with his hands. A builder. He was also a man of great faith. The other Joseph in the Bible, was a man who had the wisdom of God upon him. He saw the problem and the solution for the famine in Egypt. Because of His hard work nations, including the nation of Israel, were saved.
So, we named our son, Brenden Joseph Hirn.
Brenden Joseph Hirn
(a man gifted with wisdom and knowledge to use his hands and tools for service)
Brenden after his uncle Brandon
Joseph after the earthly father of Jesus, a carpenter, and Joseph, the favored son of Israel.
Brenden means prince
Joseph means may YHVH God increase, add to, multiply greatly

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
