Ford's Dedication

Yesterday Ford was dedicated to the Austin Stone Community Church. Jon and I brought Ford before our church and promised to raise him up in the love and care of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In our faith, we believe in believers baptism, instead of infant baptism. We pray that one day in the future, Ford will ask Jesus into his heart and accept Him as his savior, on his own and participate in an immersion baptism. Jon and I took a class and formulated family goals, commitments and rhythms that will help us lead Ford in His walk with the Lord. We are blessed with such a supportive family, church family, and friends to encourage, love, and with our family. It was such a beautiful and special celebration!


“Hear, O Israel, The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." Deuteronomy 6:4-7






My mom had her wedding dress made into a dedication/Christening gown for her grandbabies so we got some pictures of Ford wearing it looking like a little prince!






Church took a lot out of Ford because he slept during the first few hours of his celebration party! We had friends and family over to our house for lunch and if you can believe it, we were sweating on our patio because it was 88 degrees!


Yes my baby was in a diaper outside in the middle of November...and he was still sweating!

From the second we announced our pregnancy, Ford has received so much love and so many prayers from all of you and we couldn't feel more blessed, thank you!
