Dedication of our Boys

This morning at church we had both of our boys dedicated! It was a very special morning...a morning for us to commit to raising our boys in a Godly home! I took the biggest challenge in raising my boys in a way that they see Jesus in me! that my prayer and hope! And, the church as a whole committed to raising our boys with awesome is that to have them surrounded by so many wonderful believers! Awesome!

Our wonderful Pastor Chuck did an awesome job praying for our boys and encouraging us as their parents. He was so kind in mentioning Kate...he even had her picture on the big screen. Pastor was on his way to Michigan to dedicate Kate when she passed we had a little dedication ceremony in our living room later that day when we got home. It meant so much to us...she is and always will be part of our family...and were so glad to have her memory included today.

Grandma & Ted and Nana & Oompa came and were part of the dedicationSeth wasn't quite sure about the whole thing....he can be so shy!Grant...well, he just hammed it up for the whole congregation.

As part of the dedication...we were to pick a verse...a life verse for our boys. Andy read them aloud this morning.

Seth: Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."

Grant: 2 Peter 1: 5-8 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ
