Every now and then we receive reminders of the impact of our work. We never know how, or to what degree, our designs will speak to those who own them, but there is always a sense of humbled satisfaction every time our work is used to communicate something higher than ourselves.

In 2006, Bob Siemon Design's Shield of Faith played a role in a remarkable incident when it contributed to stopping a bullet that hit a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq. The solider, who was in the middle of his second tour in the Middle East, was the target of a sniper shot that penetrated his body armor and came in contact with the Shield of Faith pendant that his mother had given him just a few weeks earlier. He was left with a deep bruise, but was otherwise unharmed by the attack and was able to escape safely. He continues to wear the pendant daily, though dented and bent, as a reminder of God's hedge of protection around him.

This is, without a doubt, an incredible story and we want people to know about it.
