Grace Upon Grace

Meet my beautiful goddaughter, Eliza. 

We are so blessed and honored to pray for this precious little one's life in the Lord. The spiritual blessings between our two families are numerous: her mother's parents were great mentors to me during college - hosting amazing holiday celebrations full of very spirited discussions with students of all sorts, believers and non believers alike. Her mother and I prayed Hubby right into the Kingdom (along with Craig Parker, the Navigators, and it goes without saying, the Holy Spirit). Her father's stalwart, faithful witness in the very secular and hostile academic world is an inspiration and source of great encouragement to many. Both her parents are my second daughter's godparents and now we are hers.  Praising God for "working all things for good for those who love Him and and care called according to His purposes" Romans 8:28.

Here's to Elizabeth and Eliza, may God truly be their oath (as their names declare).

"For from His fullness we have all received grace upon grace" John 1:16
