We went through a commitment ceremony with 4 of 8, where she committed her dating life and purity to the Lord. We gave her a ring to wear, reminding her of her decision.
We also included 2 and 3 of 8, as we had already given them promise rings around their thirteenth birthdays.
What a sweet, sweet time.
We live in a culture that sends all kinds of messages into the stratosphere about dating and choices and purity and boundaries and freedom and consequences. It's a joy to give our kids a specific time and place to make commitment and memory.
We're so proud of you, 4 of 8. May the Lord bless you and keep you.
And enjoy that pretty new ring!
