My Life and Faith: Andrew Thuras

Posted: September 28, 2016

Andrew Thuras has learned a great deal about faith from grandparents on both sides of his family. His maternal grandmother came from a family where many of the men were pastors and she “had the strongest faith” Andrew had ever seen. She was particularly nurturing and encouraging of Andrew’s faith, even at age six when his main concern was whether or not dogs could be in heaven. On the paternal side of his family, Andrew looked up to his grandfather the most. He taught him that it’s okay to be both a scientist and a Christian and that “not everything has to be seen” to be believed.
