Meet In God We Trust, formerly known as Steve Kruescher of Zion. Yes, the man's name change just got approved by a judge last Friday:
Steve Kruescher of Zion has legally changed his name to "In God We Trust." It's true. His first name is now "In God" and his last name is "We Trust." Lake County Circuit Judge David Hall approved the petition Friday.
"I feel fantastic," We Trust said. "I've been praying for this." The 57-year-old school bus driver and amateur artist says his new name fully expresses who he is as a person. "God has brought me through some very hard times," he said. "I feel this is a way to honor God and immortalize that phrase."
God seems to have approved:
He's already had to pay $246 for the legal petition, and about $150 for legal notices in the newspaper. He figures the total cost will be about $600.
And wouldn't you know it? He just received his government stimulus check in the amount of $600.
"It didn't surprise me," We Trust said. "God is with me."
