Scott and I are privileged to have 4 beautiful children, and because we do,
sometimes it’s tough for them to get the individual attention
We have done our best to spend one on one time with each of them.
Scott does “daddy/daughter dates” and “boys day out”
and I try to do
“girls day out” and hope to do a “mom/son date”
with our young son soon.
Still, most of what we do is usually as
Although we have tons of fun all together
and we are making wonderful family memories,
we still want
our children to know that they are important to us as individuals.
They are each unique and possess beautiful qualities
that make them who they are.
Therefore, my husband and I have decided to
write each of them
a “blessing” individually to honor each one.
Our sweet McKenna, our pleasant surprise. We could not imagine life
Our Heavenly Father has created you and ordained a plan for you before
you ever took your first breath.
We are so thankful that God has chose us to be your parents.
Our desire is to raise you in the fear and admonition
of the Lord.
We pray that you know Him for yourself, love Him with your
whole heart and live for Him all of your days.
Since the time you were very small,
we have noticed your tender, loving heart toward God and people.
You make us proud by your efforts to learn more from scripture and devotion
and by growing in the ways of the Lord
that you may love Him greater.
Your helpfulness and humility are God-given traits,
put in you by our loving Creator.
You are always willing to lend a helping hand or speak a word of
It doesn’t go unnoticed and
we appreciate your kindness and your loving ways.
It is our prayer that you will live a life that is completely “sold out” to the Lord!
Remember that even if you gain the whole world
but loose your own soul,
you’d have nothing because Jesus is everything.
Find your identity in Him always!
Never let the world determine who you are or what you do.
Follow after the Lord.
Strive for holiness of character
and beauty of the soul.
Be gentle, be kind and loving.
Love God and love your neighbor.
Store up eternal treasures and hold loosely
to temporal things.
Always know that you are loved…
We love you
beyond what words can describe.
And though our love for you is great big,
God’s love for you is even greater.
Nothing can ever separate you from the love of Christ.
You are forever loved!
God’s word tells us that favour is deceitful
and beauty is vain
but a woman who fears the Lord
shall be praised.
Don’t be fooled by what society says
Always remember beauty starts on the inside.
You are beautiful inside, out!
Our prayer is that you continue to honor God with your
mind, body and soul.
We bless you with
God’s abundant love, wisdom, peace and joy.
Whatever lies ahead of you
in this life,
know with assurance
that you are safe in Christ!
May He alone be your fulfillment.
May He alone receive your worship
may He alone sustain you
all of your days on this earth.
We pray that you
love and serve the
all of your days.
Love Always, Mom and Dad
