una pregunta con respecto "a fe mía"
I have heard "A fe mía" used to mean "On my honor, blah blah blah," however, would it be culturally appropriate to use it as a stand alone comment regarding ones religious faith?
I would like to have it inscribed on something if so, but i don't want to do that if the cultural understanding of the phrase is so different from what I'm attempting to say.
The phrase I'm going for, by the way, is "Upon my faith."
Thanks for all the help!
(Lo siento yo no escribí en español, pero, llego tarde a trabajo) haha, ¡Gracías!
UPDATE: After looking at a response and reading more, I'm leaning towards "Sobre mi fe"

seems to be one of those restricted php databases that won't link.
Anyway, it says a fe mía means upon my faith. Notice the synonyms, however.
upon my faith
upon my faith Adverb
- a fe mía, para mi santiguada, por mi santiguada; Synonyms: for the life of me, on my word, on my word of honor, upon my honor, on my word of honour, upon my honour
