Olivia's Blessing Day

Awe it is so fun to see just how much love a baby has for their mommy.

Olivia's blessing was beautiful and Ryan did a wonderful job! Our little girl is going to grow into such an amazing woman with so many possibilities with all of the promises and opportunities that the Lord has install for her future. I would have loved to have all of our family there for her special day but... life happens. We were fortunate enough to have such wonderful neighbors who love Livie so much and were able to attend her blessing. In her blessing circle were all three members of the bishopric Bishop Dennis, Bro Jensen, Bro Barzee along with Bro Siglin, Bro Walsted, Bro Jared Jensen and Elder Wagner.

A few things that were mentioned in her blessing were that Olivia would prove to be a strength to her family and many around her. The Lord will bless her as she grows into a healthy girl and young woman. She will be an example to those around her and be the means by which many will come unto Christ. She will be married in the temple and raise righteous children.

It was a beautiful day everything from the sunny weather to the wonderful spirit that filled the air. I am so grateful to be apart of this gospel that allows us to be so connected with our Savior and provides us with such milestone days like baby blessings.


The humbled Mother,
Dani
