A school bus driver and amateur artist from the northern Chicago suburb of Zion has legally changed his name to "In God We Trust."

A Lake County circuit court judge approved Steve Kreuscher's name change petition on Friday.

Under the arrangement, the 57-year-old's first name was changed to "In God" while his last name was changed to "We Trust."

He says the new name symbolizes the help God gave him during tough times and says he can't wait to begin signing his artwork with the new moniker.
