Her Name Shall be Called...

This past Sunday I preached a message from Psalm 139:13-16 titled “The Truth of Life” as part of our Celebration of Life day. Given the sermon topic, I was able to share ultrasound pictures of our daughter with the congregation. The first picture was our little girl at 8 weeks. Just a little bundle cradled in the womb but already the heartbeat is clearly visible. The second picture was a 3D ultrasound at 18 weeks. You can see amazing detail of her cute little face. (she must take after her daddy!) Seriously, her mother!!!!

It was at this point that I announced to our church family the name Summer and I had chosen for her. I’d like to share it with all of you as well.

Names are important. They remain with you through life. They can be a great guidance through life. I am named after both of my grandfathers. My name, therefore, means a lot to me.

Our daughter’s name is....

Alethia Elisabeth Owens.

(uh-lay-thE-uh) Alethia is a greek word meaning "truth." As in John 14:6 where Jesus said, "I am the way, the alethia, and the life." Our prayer for her is that she would grow to know, love, and share the Truth, Jesus Christ!

Elisabeth (spelled with a "s" instead of a "z" because that's the way Elisabeth Elliot spells her name) Elisabeth Elliot has been an inspiration for missions and for discipleship to so many. Her courage to reach the tribe that martyred her husband is the kind of fearless zeal for Christ we hope to see in our children. Our goal is to expose our children to many heroes of the faith in order to encourage them to pursue their greatest joy, Christ!

Of course, you know where "Owens" comes from.

Alethia Elisabeth Owens. We'll get to meet her in person some time around the first of May!!
