Mallory's Dedication

Sunday morning at our church, Mallory was dedicated. This is a time for Brian and I to say to our church family that we, as parents, will raise Mallory in the way the God teaches us to raise children. Our hope is that as she grows older, she will love Jesus and prayerfully one day, ask Him to live in her heart and be baptized.

I've really been looking forward to this day since Mallory was born. They had a dedication in September but we had to miss it because I was traveling home from work. I was so sad we had to miss it so it made looking forward to today even more exciting.
