Rebekah's Blessing

Rebekah was given a name and a blessing on May 31 by her father. He gave her a wonderful blessing. I am so thankful for the restored gospel and that Eric honorably holds the priesthood of God. The name we chose for her is Rebekah Michele Frazee. We chose Rebekah not only because it is a beautiful name in itself but after Rebekah in the Bible. A righteous daughter of God chosen to marry Isaac, son of Abraham and Sarah, and a prophet of God. She became the mother of Jacob and Esau. Jacobs name was later changed by God to Israel. We hope our little Rebekah will seek to remain pure and clean and learn to follow God's commandments that she may be a righteous daugther of God. Her middle name Michele is after Eric's beloved little sister who died as a young girl. We know Rebekah will be a joy to our family as Michele was to hers.

Rebekah wore a very special dress and looked beautiful in it. It was the dress I was blessed in as well as both of her older sisters. We love her so much and are so thankful to have her in our family.

It was a special occasion for our family. We were glad to have my parents come up to be here as well as my brother Russell and his wife Erin and their children. We were also very grateful to have our wonderful Nana, Rebekah's great grandmother there along with Aunt Sophia, Aunt Kathy, Aunt Mary and Allison and Kaliegh, Aunt Carla and Uncle Phil and Aunt Delores. We really appreciate all the love and support we receive from our families!
