This Is Dedicated to the ONE We Love

Dearest, precious Eden,

Your father and I stood before friends and family on Sunday evening, May 27, 2012 – the day before Memorial Day –  professing our desire to raise you in the knowledge and admiration of the Lord. In preparing for this moment, we were encouraged to write a letter, telling you what we want you to become. My first thought was, “I want Eden to become Eden.” And that, sweet daughter, is my pledge to you – to honor God by guiding  you in your discovery of His design for you and your life.

Here are some additional thoughts from me and Dear Old Dad:

We want Eden:

  • to know Jesus as her savior.
  • to center her life on Christ.
  • to know her spiritual gifts and to use them faithfully.
  • to laugh often and well.
  • to enjoy life.
  • to pursue her God-given passions.
  • to be modest.
  • to be pure in mind and body.
  • to love and appreciate nature.
  • to be wise and discerning.
  • to be brave.
  • to be gentle.
  • to be kind.
  • to be honest.
  • to be salt and light.
  • to live with integrity.
  • to have a biblical understanding of finances.

This list is a work in progress…as are you, my sweet…as am I! We love you so dearly,

Mom and Dad
