My Girl

I'm sure most of you have known for a little while that we are naming our little girl:


I have been wanting to write this post for awhile now and I've been trying to get the words out. Jared and I have loved the name Lucy since the beginning but I wasn't sold on the name until one day I decided to look up the meaning.

Bringer of Light -- is what the website said that it meant

Wow - how powerful! I wanted our little girl to have a powerful and meaningful name and I pray this one suits her just perfectly.

I was at Beth Moore's bible study on Deuteronomy - the law of love- a couple weeks ago and she said the best thing we can do as mommies and daddies is to first off "love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind." I hope that Jared and I can live that out for her each day.

Since naming her, I have also loved praying specific things for Lucy and over her little life. It's not as if she wasn't real before, but having her name makes it seem more real to us. I have loved reading Philippians 2 and praying this over her:

"Shine like the stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life."

My prayer for my precious daughter Lucy is she will love her God and she will shine like the stars. Would you join us in praying for her?


  1. I ADORE the name Lucy! How sweet! Have you come up with a middle name?

  2. Congratulations! Such a beautiful name and meaning.
    Saying a prayer for Lucy now.

  3. Hi,
    My name is Morgan and I'm a youth minister's wife from Texas too. I
    found your blog on Kelly's Korner. I didn't link up myself simply
    because I didn't have time :( I felt like we might have some things in
    common and I thought we could at the very least share prayer request
    with each other. I haven't been keeping up with blogging like a want
    to, but here's the link to my blog:

    I would love for you to email me at:
    In Christ,

  4. Congratulations on the baby girl-to-come! Just love the picture with Lucy's name above her bed. Did you make it? Love the colors too!

    May God bless you as you raise this sweet baby girl. Bless you and your husband as you serve Him in the work He has called you to do!

    1. Thank you so much! That picture actually isn't our room - it was something I grabbed off Pinterest. I will post pictures of her room soon. Thanks for the sweet comment!

  5. Hi there! I found you through Kelly's Korner. I am a pastor's wife (hubby used to be a youth pastor) and I saw that you're from Texas. I'm assuming Houston since you went to Beth Moore? I was there Tuesday night as well. Would love for you to stop by and say hi-

  6. Hi! Stopping by from Kelly's Korner! LOVE the green crib! Beautiful! Great blog!!!
