Inara's Blessing


Spencer gave Inara a beautiful blessing on Sunday. We were happy to have almost our whole family there. It's so nice to have everyone so close so that we can share these special days with each other.

When I was talking to Inara about her blessing and explaining what is was, I realized I had never thought about what a special privilege it is to receive a blessing. The blessings we are given are the blessings the Lord wants us to have throughout our life, and He blesses us with them when we're first born so that he can work through us to build his kingdom. I'm so happy to know that the Lord has a plan for us, and blesses us with the ability to get through all that life dishes out.

I agree Kelsey. I love that you talked to Inara all about her blessing. You're an amazing Mommy...such an inspiration to me. Oh and uh...if the identity of her Father is ever questioned :)...just show them the bottom photo and point out her button nose. I love it! ~Hannah
