Mother's Day 2013

Last year, I had no idea that a year later I would be celebrating my third Mother’s Day as a mother of two. Never could I have imagined how my life would be turned upside down in the most wonderful of ways because of this little girl.

Charlotte Faith was dedicated at church this morning, in front of our church family, her grandparents, and aunt and uncle. I wrote the following blessing as part of her dedication.


You are God’s precious gift to our family. God knows so much better than we do what the very best plan for our lives is, and He gave you to us when we least expected but most needed you. We promise to provide a home for you full of love, security, and the Word of God. We love you fiercely and pray that you will always seek the truth and that God will richly bless your life.

Mommy and Daddy
Because we are living with my parents right now, I get to spend a lot of time with my own mom. I love it. She is such a tender, sweet, loving grandmother to Grayson and Charlotte. And she is still such a good Mommy to me too.
Grayson. My handsome boy who just has been dealt the most unfair hand in life. I am forever humbled that God entrusted his life on earth with me, his mom.
I love these babies, and I love being their mom. It was the happiest of Mother’s Days.
