Crew's Dedication

In February we dedicated Crew at church. Our church is rather large so instead of dedicating him in “big church” we made the important commitment to raise him in the way of the Lord in front of our community group aka Sunday school class. Our community group consists of about 80 people so it’s kind of like a mini church. We are so blessed by the people in our community group. Several moms have come beside me during this new chapter in my life and have really been a huge support to me, letting me know that I’m not crazy, and yes motherhood is really hard and it’s okay to admit. Trev has a godly group of men who he enjoys doing manly things with like racquetball and basketball with when he finds the time aside from working 80 hours a week! It’s been a hard winter with the adjustments of his demanding work schedule and having a new baby and I honestly would say without my parents help and support from my friends I couldn’t’ have survived. We were so honored that we could dedicate him in front of family and friends that we dearly love.  

On Crew's cake is a special prayer that Trev and I picked out for Crew,

Proverbs 3:1-12

3 My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,
2 for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you peace and prosperity.
3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.[a]
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord and shun evil.
8 This will bring health to your body
and nourishment to your bones.
9 Honor the Lord with your wealth,
with the firstfruits of all your crops;
10 then your barns will be filled to overflowing,
and your vats will brim over with new wine.
11 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
and do not resent his rebuke,
12 because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
as a father the son he delights in.
