Baby Dedication

God has given us the privilege and huge responsibility to raise our children to know God and love and serve Him. Wow – talk about a big job! Today we dedicated Grayson and Weston to publicly tell everyone that we commit to raising our kids in a Christian household that loves and serves God! As I thought about it today, it can be an overwhelming task. Luckily, we have a pretty big partner in this – John and I will set a good example and give them the opportunities to learn the Gospel and God will do the rest.

Gray is ready to get his dedicate on...


Weston is not quite as excited...


The cousins before we start...


Poor Wyatt is getting plenty of toddler snacks shoved into his mouth!


The Rosies on stage (we're minus one - he HAD to go potty)


And he's back!





Austin desperately wants to go jump in the baptismal. Desperately. Would probably give up birthday and Christmas toys for years to do it.


Our amazing Pastor Chuck!


Austin and Addie's fave part - cupcakes with Aunt Ashley and Grandma!



Cupcakes and juice is a close second to jumping in the baptismal - and it's mom-approved.


There was a point of the service where Austin crawled into my lap and curled into me. His head tucks perfectly under my chin. We sang Chris Tomlin's Amazing Grace and I cried. I am reminded that I have such a short time that Austin will crawl into my lap and fit there so perfectly. Relatively speaking, I have such a short time to teach him values and show him how to know God. I love this little man!


Too busy shoving cupcake in to smile. But still the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen.


I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 1:4
