106-Year-Old Woman Credits Longevity To Faith In God

Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like it's heaven on earth. Here are the joys and sorrows of life,let's spend the time together.

  It's not very often that you hear that someone has lived to be 106 years old. Thus, when someone gets to be that old we all look to them for advice in our own lives.

  Mainly – what is the secret to living past 100 years old?

  A woman in Halifax County recently celebrated her 106th birthday.

  Ruth Hilliard was born June 5, 1913. That's well before your iPhone or Google. It was even a time before stoplights, Band-Aids, bubble gum, ballpoint pens, microwave ovens and the discovery of penicillin. 

   For Ruth Hilliard, her secret is pretty straightforward, and it doesn't involve too much effort.  All you have to do is believe in God.

  Hilliard spent decades teaching children. She was a teacher by trade and mentor by heart.

  She taught kids at school and at church. Even to this day, she encourages young people to take their education seriously and do well in school.

  Hilliard has one son, three grandchildren, and a great-grandchild. 

  Although she’s been out of the workforce for quite some time, there's still a vital lesson we can all take away from Ruth—Keep your strong faith in God.

  She credits her longevity to faith in God. Hilliard's vision is not as good as it once was, but she still recites scripture on a regular basis.

 “He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”

  Hilliard said she believes God has used her 106 years of life to show the value of that particular passage of the Bible.
