baby dedication...watts and ford

On Sunday, Oct. 6, Mat and I participated in Baby Dedication at FBC. Larry Furhman was there to speak to the parents of the five babies dedicated. He gave us a charge to parent these children well, and to bring them up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. He also charged the church and grandparents to join us in this endeavor.

Mat and I were more than honored to dedicate our two babies to the Lord. We pray that we will be faithful parents who always point our children to Christ.

I was also honored to stand beside my husband as we made a public declaration to commit our children to the Lord. I am so thankful that I get to do this parenthood thing with Mat. I couldn't ask for a better husband or a better father for my children. I am so, so blessed.

Ama-Watts and Ford, we are so thankful to be your parents. Please know that it is our strongest desire to see you both come to know the Lord at an early age. We pray that your lives will make much of the Kingdom of Christ. We pray that you both with have a strong desire to follow the Lord all the days of your lives. We pray that you will be faithful to the callings He will place on each of you. We are always here for you, and we will always be there to help you through whatever may come. We are humans, so we will make mistakes along the way, but we promise, we are working for your good, as is the Lord. We love you both so very much. Thank you for making us parents and for making us proud every single day. We are forever thankful for both of you.

**AWA was dedicated this day, but she couldn't handle the excitement of the stage, so she was escorted to the nursery shortly after the service began.
