Dedication


A few weekends ago (yep, I'm that behind!) we dedicated Claire and Hunter at church. 
When Claire was a baby we were 'church shopping' and didn't really feel at home in any one church, so we never dedicated her. When we moved back to Portland we tried a few other churches in the area but eventually settled down at Cornerstone, my home church and Drew's uncles church. We are loving being a part of such a wonderful church family!

So after Hunter was born I talked with Drew about his thoughts on dedicating the kids, and we went ahead and emailed his uncle Barry (our pastor) about setting it up. It just so happened that Drew's cousin Blake (Barry's son) was getting married in about a month, which meant that Drew's grandparents would be visiting from Alaska, so we decided to dedicate the kids the Sunday after the wedding so they would be able to be there. It was such a blessing being able to be surrounded by family as we dedicated the kids.

Here is the video if you're interested:


Claire was pretty amused with the whole thing. She kept telling me that she wanted to go play with toys in the nursery haha! I also had to keep her from knocking the monitor over at one point because she was so amused with being able to see pictures of herself on the monitor. 

Here are the slides that you can't see in the video




We feel so blessed to be raising our children in church with such strong leaders, and other families that we have so much respect for.

  1. This is SO special. I love how Drew talked about dedicating yourselves to Christ to show Him to your kids. It was so sweet what he said about your kids. :) :) So happy you have a strong, godly man!! :) What you said about Claire was so sweet too! Especially loved the verse you chose, perfect for a little girl. :)
