Dedication Sunday

This past Sunday, we had both Sophie and Hudson dedicated. It was so amazing to me that we were standing before our church family holding our two babies!!!! The Lord has truly blessed us and I stand amazed at what He has done for our family!

Shane had the opportunity to introduce the babies and to publicly praise the Lord for our two little blessings!

Our wonderful Pastor then prayed over the babies.


He prayed that they would both come to know the Lord at a young age and that they would spend their entire lives living for Him!! The time of dedication is not only for the babies, but for us as parents too. We stood before our church family and promised to raise our children in a loving, Godly, home where Christ is always the center. We also reaffirmed our commitment to each other as a couple.

It was such a special time!

How beautiful! It is one of the most important things we can do for our kids..if not the most important..to bring them before the Lord and put them in His hands! Congrats!!!

What a special gift to dedicate both your babies at the same time. Incredible the difference a year can make, and all the little surprises God can do in such a short amount of time.

Loving Sophie's long braided hair -- such a doll!!

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful! I am so sorry we had to miss it. Corban looked so handsome when Shane dropped him off at Sunday School, though. Your children are certainly blessed to have you both!!! Blessings!
