Daphne's Dedication Day

As we've done with all of our children as babies, we dedicated Daphne at church last Sunday. It was a sweet time of sharing our intention of raising her up to follow Jesus, in conjunction with our church.

Unlike the other kids, Daphne was not dedicated at Westover (our church in Greensboro), but at Grace Pointe Church in Naperville. She's also the only one to be dedicated on Mother's Day.

We were SO thankful to have my Aunt Jill and Uncle Ken and my parents join us for this special weekend!

Daphne now holds the honor of being our only child to cry on stage at her dedication. We tried to hand her to Pastor Derek, but she wasn't having it. She was fine when he handed her back to me (and I gave her her paci!)

The other three did great on stage - I think they were a bit frozen with stage fright ;)

Jason read the verse we chose for Daphne, 2 Timothy 2:22, "So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart."

The sermon afterward was lovely, and then we invited a few friends and our family over for a reception - to come in the next post :) 

It's always an honor and a blessing to entrust our church with the responsibility of helping us to raise a child to know Jesus. We're thankful for a wonderful church here to help us point Daphne upward.
