Macy's Dedication

My Dad dedicated Macy at church today. It was incredibly special and memorable. At our church, dedicating your baby is optional. It is agreeing to partner with the congregation to raise Macy up in the way she should go. We hope she loves the Lord and follows after Him with her whole heart. Our church congregation agrees to help us with that huge job and support us along the way. What a gift!

Dad gave Macy Proverbs 3:5-6 for her life verse.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

He also wrote her a letter that she can't open until her 18th birthday, which was incredibly meaningful.

Then Dad held Macy and prayed for her, and us, and the church came and laid hands on us and prayed for us. That of course, made me cry. (I'm kind of sensitive these days with anything having to do with our daughter!) We are so blessed to have the family we have, (both sides!) and belong to the church we go to. It is a safe, joyful and Christ-centered place that Macy will be blessed to attend throughout her life!


  1. What a gift! And such a special day. I encourage you to write her a letter of your own, to add to your Dad's. How neat will that be, for her to open it on her 18th birthday? We love you guys, and commit with you to help Macy in every and any way.

  2. So wish I could've been there!! Of course I heard about how ADORABLE Macy was!! Hope you had someone taking pictures!!
