On Oct. 25th we celebrated our boy becoming a man, publicly. All the studying, praying, talking and writing that Eben and Peter did together at Great Wolf Lodge was summed up in a pledge that Eben read in front of his friends and family at our church. I was actually surprised at how many came and supported our man in his quest to seek after God's heart in his life as a man of God.
Dada spoke and then Eben read his commitment to leadership, courageousness, truth, humility, purity and God. We gave him his purity ring (which both Peter and I received when we were 13) and the elders of the church all prayed over Eben.
It takes a village and Eben has an amazing one! Afterwards we had a reception with cobbler in the Friendship room.
Kissing our handsome man! Thirteen years has gone by lightning fast.
He's made this parenting thing so much fun!!
