Our names are Kent and Melissa and our baby is Masen. He was born Dec 31st, 2011. We had poured over many names and narrowed down to a few. When we saw him the first time Masen just seemed to fit. It’s an incredible thing to see a new life developing, learning and growing and it affords parents the opportunity to learn nearly as much as the child. Amongst many things, I think children teach you much about yourself, they are in many ways a reflection of you. John 10:10, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Travis and Kellie Arnold present their daughter, Layla Nicole Arnold

Travis and Kellie Arnold welcomed their daughter Layla Nicole Arnold to this world on August 30th, 2012. Her first name means dark beauty (which is fitting since she was born with a full head of dark hair,) and her middle name honors Kellie’s sister and mother. Layla is truly a gift from God, and her birth has taught both parents how little control they have over their lives and how God has a beautiful plan for everything. Layla’s birth has not only caused her parents to love one another more, but their love for God has grown tremendously as well.

Matt and Gäbri Warren present their daughter, Emma Rose Warren

We are so thankful for the beautiful blessing of Emma Rose Warren who is the daughter of Matthew and Gäbri Warren. She was born on a beautiful spring morning on June 7, 2012. Her name, which is Hebrew for healer, originally came from a dream her parents had soon after they found out they were pregnant. Emma brings happiness and joy to her parents and those who she’s around. May she grow to be a beautiful and powerful woman of God. May she bring healing and wholeness to a broken world. May she know God’s love for her deeply and be blessed all the days of her life.
