Cooper's Dedication

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
This weekend was Cooper's dedication ceremony at our church. What an important and special day it was for our family. For the past several weeks Chad and I have been taking a preparation class at our church called "Fostering Faith in the Home." Our class introduced us to the First Look curriculum that is used with the preschool children at our church. The teacher in me was very interested in all this program has to offer. There are so many resources for parents to use in connection with what the children are learning at church! You can read more about this curriculum here. Chad and I feel both honored and overwhelmed with the task of raising Cooper in a Christian home and guiding him to his own personal faith. We are so lucky to be surrounded by wonderful family and friends to help us with this huge endeavor. Thank you MiMi, Grandad, Case, Grandmommy, and PaPa for taking the time to come celebrate with us this weekend! Also, thanks for the cards, calls, and gifts from those of you that couldn't make it. Here are some pics from our special weekend!

Cooper's first Bible! It even has his name on it! Thanks Grandmommy and PaPa!
"These commandments that I give to you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up" Deuteronomy 6:6-7

  1. What a milestone! Raising a child to love the Lord is a huge blessing and responsibility. I love that your church has a dedication prep class for parents! I think I will suggest that to our Family Pastor.
