Crew Benjamin's Baptism:

You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ's own forever. Amen. 

On Saturday the 22nd of November, our son was baptized in the ships bell aboard the USS FARRAGUT in a very intimate gathering. The FARRAGUT holds a special meaning for my family because my cousin is the ship's Command Officer! Congrats again Cory, we are so proud of you! 

Not only did the ship hold a special meaning for our family but so many other details of Crew's baptism did as well. Exactly 2 years ago (almost to the day) Charli was baptized in a ships bell aboard the USS ROOSEVELT (DDG 80), the Christening gown he wore was mine and was also worn by big sister, and the white sailor outfit he wore underneath was the outfit that my brother was baptized in! With my brother not able to be here, it made it even more special that Crew was wearing his Uncle's Christening outfit! We felt it was perfect for a "Navy" baptism and that his daddy has been serving in the Navy for almost 17 years!

Words really can't express how honored and blessed I feel that our children have had such special, meaningful baptisms that really tie into our life as a Navy and Christian family. We are incredibly proud of what Steven does and want him to know that in every way possible!

May God bless him, and keep him; Make his face to shine upon him, and be gracious unto him; In everything he does.
