  1. As my pastor says, I love baby dedications – they are right up there with weddings and baptisms for me. 🙂 Congratulations!

  2. That is a beautiful feeling. The love and support of family and friends is so important in raising a child up to serve and love the Lord. It takes an ‘army’ of God-minded individuals to encourage, protect and teach a child.

  3. Beautiful pictures! Beautiful baby Gabrielle! Thanks so much for sharing what a wonderful experience!

  4. The joy is so evident in the pictures. We struggled with infertility so after 9 years our dedication of my daughter was a God-moment. I’ve had the privilege of writing my grandchildren’s dedication ceremonies. The memories from this special day will be in your heart as you continually give your sweet daughter to God and His work.

  5. Praise God for His faithfulness to us. I pray that our hearts will continue to remain dedicated to Christ and becoming what He wants us to be. I’ve been trusting God these past couple of years for my life plan and I know He has His hands in my life, molding and setting things into motion! Gabrielle is beautiful and I pray that she continues to grow in God’s love.

  6. Congratulations! We don’t see too many of these ceremonies any more. And what a shame. I was dedicated the first time I was taken to Church (about 6 weeks old) and having been told about it and taught what it meant, I treasured the fact that I had been dedicated to God and I have lived for him all my life. Not that I haven’t made mistakes and strayed on occasion, but His love always drew me back to His arms. And I attribute some of that to the fact that I was dedicated sincerely to Him as a babe. All 4 of my children went thru the same process on their 1st visit to God’s House. Today one son is a worship leader ( for about 20 years at different churches) 1 son has His own Church and both daughters love and live for God altho they are not employed by the Church. I am so thankful for the Hand of God on my life and the lives of our children and I’m thankful my parents had the wisdom to dedicate me and us, ours. Praise God for His blessings and mercy.

  7. We are so proud of Mr. And Mrs. Barry Bryant. Thank you for sharing this very special day!

  8. “God doesn’t ask me to strive to be more dedicated. He doesn’t ask for perfection. That’s His role. He simply asks for my devotion.”

    Love this.

  9. Loved the photos. I know it was a special moment for you and your entire family.

    What am I dedicating to God this year.. patience to deal with an aging parent that moved into assisted living; more time for God & the Bible .

    God Bless! 🙂
