Ethan's Baby Dedication

Ethan's Baby Dedication took place today, Mother's Day. And what a milestone in Ethan's life! Joel's family was with us to commemorate the event. Our Pastor put it aptly as he described how much we ache as parents to be able to impart salvation on our children but alas that is now God's plan for humanity. Instead we commit ourselves as a family and a church body to strive to be like Christ for Ethan to show him the truth of Savior in our lives. I was humbled by the weighty responsibility but encouraged that there is already a fellowship, in our church home as well as family and friends, that are that to be Christ in his life.
On a much lighter note, Ethan looked so darn cute! Thanks Mimi & Pops, we miss you!


  1. What a beautiful day to dedicate your son! You have a precious family and I'm sure the Lord will continue to bless your family with encouragement and help raising Ethan to know and love Him.

  2. What sweet pictures...we wish we could have been there! I am glad the Hilborn clan was there to celebrate----looks like y'all had a great weekend!


    Good job on the cute little outfit!
