Miles Benjamin's Baptism

I can't really explain what it's like to watch your husband baptize your own child. It was one of the sweetest and best moments of my life. Rick has also always given our children a blessing at their baptism which is read aloud. Miles' contains the meaning of his name and the reason we chose it.


Our God is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.  It is our hope that He grants you eyes to see your sin and faith to trust His promise of forgiveness.

Your name Miles Benjamin, means “Merciful, son of my right hand”, and we pray this serves as a constant reminder to you that the mercy of God is found only in the Son who is sitting at the right hand of our Father in heaven.  May this mercy of God be your source of hope and peace and cause you to always listen to the truth while preparing you to give a reason for the hope that is within you.

Finally, Miles, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  Know always that we love you and will pray continually that you are able to stand through the power of Christ Alone.

Ephesians 6:10-19

  1. What a blessing it was to be there to witness this. Not many dry female eyes in the room.
