My niece and nephew...

Matt has one sibling, his brother Tim. Tim and his wife have three children. Today was a special day for their two older children. Jacob got baptized. In our faith, we have a "baby dedication" when a baby is born, as at that point we as parents are responsible for teaching our children about God, and we allow them to make the decision to be baptized when they are old enough to understand what that means. Well today our nephew Jacob made that decision. What a special and most important decision to be making. Unfortunately wiggling doesn't lead to the best quality pictures...
And Jacob's older sister Allayna became an Honor Star. This is a tremendous accomplishment. The MPact girls group in our church is like the AG version of Girl Scouts, it is a biblically based program that teaches young girls from the age of 3 up through highschool about being Godly women. They complete each level and earn badges, if they go about and beyond the expectation and complete multiple other requirements they become an Honor Star. Our whole church honored her accomplishment. We are so proud of her and the beautiful young woman of God that she is becoming. This is Allayna with her dad:
What an awesome responsibility that God has given us parents to raise our children to love and serve the Lord. I am so thankful that our entire family knows God and serves Him :-) Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.
