Baby Dedication

Today we dedicated Ellie and Hadley at our church. Gavin was dedicated as a baby so he stood up on stage with us as we promised to raise our kids in a Christian home. It was nice to have our friend and pastor be the one to dedicate the girls. I had a surge of emotions overcome me as we stood on stage and I was trying hard to fight back the tears. Gavin and Ellie already know so much about the Bible and God but I can not wait for the day when they accept Him on their own. It is something I have prayed for every night for each of them, even before they were born.
Thanks for everyone who came to support us this morning. It was a great day!

Oh the family pictures turned out GREAT!!! I love them! Such a beautiful family you are :) We really enjoyed today, thank you so much for including us! Such an honor! I know what you mean, I am so excited and praying daily for the same for my children, what an exciting day when your child comes home and tells you THEY CHOOSE to accept Him! Love you all!
