Millie and Brooks Dedication


Last weekend we had Millie and Brooks dedicated at our church. We stood in front of the church (along with 30+ other families) and dedicated our children to God and the church. We want them to grow up in a Christian Home and to be surrounded with Christian friends. We know that it is our responsibility as parents to instill God’s Word into both of their hearts at a young age. With this being said, I ask that you will pray for Stephen and myself, that we make good decisions, and demonstrate living lives that line up to God’s Word. That we will study the word in front of and with our children. Also that we will pray with our children. I think this is so important. I lived with my grandparents for a few years and the something that I realized when I first moved in with them was my Mema’s quiet time with the Lord. She was up before everyone else either in “her chair” or, in the colder months, next to her “wood burning stove.” On the mornings that I had off from work we would lay on the floor together and both do our daily devotionals. This was life changing for me. The best way to start the day, in my opinion. I am just thankful that I had her to demonstrate this. Thank you Martha Ellen for passing down your legacy!
