This morning, we dedicated ourselves in the presence of our church family to teaching our little ones God's Word, living out the gospel in our home, praying for our children and their salvation, and partnering with our church community for help and accountability as parents with the help of our Loving, Gracious Father. Our church family committed to love, encouragement, and support for us as parents as well. It was a sweet time for us all. These are the babies' bio's:
Isaac Curtis Childs was born on February 3, 2012. A brother to Andrew, Elijah, Eliana, and Isabella, he has brought great joy to his parents, Micah and Tiffany. With his strawberry-blond hair and infectious smile, Isaac personifies his name which means laughter in Hebrew. That is exactly what his family did when they found out he would be born with his two sisters, first frozen in 2008 then granted continued life and growth in 2011. The Childs family welcomes Isaac with thankfulness to the Creator and Sustainer of all things. May he never know a day he doesn’t know the love of Jesus.
Eliana Sue Childs was born on February 3, 2012. A sister to Andrew, Elijah, Isaac, and Isabella, she has brought great joy to her parents, Micah and Tiffany. Eliana has beaten all earthly odds and continues to be a visible reminder that “God moves in a mysterious way, Whose wonders to perform” ~William Cowper. Her name means “God has answered” and in her precious life, He already has in so many ways. It has been fascinating watching Eliana grow into her precocious personality. The Childs family is grateful to the Father of lights for the good and perfect gift of Eliana. May she never know a day she doesn’t know the love of Jesus.
Isabella Joy Childs was born on February 3, 2012. A sister to Andrew, Elijah, Isaac, and Eliana, she has brought great joy to her parents, Micah and Tiffany. Her life has been a reminder that God’s promises are sure and in them we find beautiful joy, as her name implies. Her big, blue eyes and welcoming smile inspire the smiles of others around her. The Childs family is humbled at the blessing of Isabella, given by God, who created her fearfully and wonderfully, in His own image. May she never know a day she doesn’t know the love of Jesus.
We pray for these children.
Be merciful to them.
Draw them to Yourself.
Help them to love and trust Jesus.
We pray that You will grow them in faiath,
so that they might become like trees
planted firmly by streams of water,
bearing fruit in season,
with leaves that will not wither.
Forthe glory of Christ,
