Baby Dedication

This Mother's Day was special to me because we finally got to dedicate both kids. This was an outward showing and declaration that we, as parents of Malachi David and Rachel Eliana, would raise them up in the Lord Jesus Christ in a Christian home with Biblical morals and values. This wasn't a baptism or any type of salvation thing. We just declared that we would do our best to be Christ like examples for them and lead them closer to God by our lives and actions as parents and husband and wife. They will choose whether or not to follow Christ but it is our duty to show them who He is and what He's done for them and for us. So we praise Jesus for this great day!!!


Of course during prayer Malachi had to play with Daddy's eyelashes the whole time!!!

I love how you put that. It makes it clear to others that Christian homes are not where we expect our kids to follow CHRIST. It is were we example to them how we follow HIM.
