Broderic Earl was publicly dedicated to God on Sunday, July 18th, 2010.

Today we recognize this child as a gift from God and give heartfelt thanks for God's blessing.

We now dedicate him to the Lord who gave him to us surrendering all worldly claims in his life in the hope that he will belong wholly to God.

We pledge as parents that, with God's fatherly help, we will bring him up in the "discipline and instruction of the Lord," making every reasonable effort, with patience and love, to build the Word of God, the character of Christ and the joy of the Lord into his life.

We promise to provide, through God's blessing, for the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of this child, looking to our own heavenly Father for the wisdom, love and strength to serve him and not use him.

We promise to make it our regular prayer that by God's grace he will come to trust in Jesus Christ alone for the forgiveness of his sins and follow Him as Lord, obeying His teachings.

How special that Brodrick and baby Richard were dedicated on the same day! Praying for their precious little lives, that they will grow up to be great men of God, and for grace and wisdom as you parent. Love you!
