Yesterday, before our church family, Josh and I promised to teach Caroline to follow Jesus as Lord.
We promised to model our own faith before her.

We promised to demonstrate God's faithfulness to us by being faithful to each other.
We promised to set an example of how to love others.

Our church promised to support us and pray for us and come alongside us throughout this parenting process.

Our parents came into town to be there for the ceremony.

During the middle of the ceremony, Caroline decided she didn't want to be held, and would rather crawl up the stairs.

While all of Caroline's grandparents surrounded her, her dad and grandpas prayed for her.  Again, she didn't want to be held.  So during the prayer we all got on the floor with her.
It seemed right.

I'll never forget it.

God is so good.

I loved LOVED that you got on the floor with her. Had to get that shot. What an example of how Jesus meets us right where we are.... even as we crawl and stumble through this crazy life. Love you Brown family. So glad to be a witness to these promises.
