Dedication Weekend

This past weekend we dedicated Addie at church.  It was such a blessing to be surrounded by family and friends. Thinking about Addie, not as a baby, but as an eternal soul, can be overwhelming. I'm humbled to think that God has trusted us with such a task of raising her. As parents, Bryan and I, are still learning to lean on God throughout the entire process..but we aren't always sure what that looks like and what specific applications are.  It is very uplifting to be surrounded by entire church full of people...vowing to support and help along the way.  We aren't raising Addie alone. First, we can do nothing great apart from God.  And secondly, the church has our back.  And our family has our back.  We are so grateful.

Pastor John Piper shared a great messaged based off of the text in  Philippians 1: 12-26. The message discussed how God is most glorified in us, when we are most satisfied in him. I would encourage any of you reading this to check it out.

Here are a few pictures from the weekend. Enjoy!

Addie did good during the service, though she was trying to tell a story while the Pastor was trying to pray
