On Sunday March 24, 2013, Brett blessed Kayla with a name and blessing in church. My father and sister were able to be here for the event. It was such a special day for our little family with perfect weather. I am grateful that Brett holds and honors his Priesthood. He gave Kayla a beautiful blessing from her Father in Heaven.
Brett blessed Kayla that she would soon develop a testimony for herself of the Restored Gospel.
He blessed her that her sweet spirit would be a blessing to all those around her.
He blessed her that she would enter the House of God and make covenants there.
He blessed her that she would find an eternal companion and go with him to the temple to be married.
I was so grateful for the Spirit I felt during the blessing. We have such a responsibility to raise this precious daughter of our Heavenly Father in a way so that she'll return to Him someday. I feel humbled to have been entrusted with this sweet spirit and pray every day that I can live up to this.

She was such an angel during the blessing and just looked up at Brett the whole time.

It's hard being so far away from all of our family and we know that so many people would have loved to be here with us today. Kayla, Brett, and I are so blessed to have such a loving family. Kayla will never want for people around her that love her.
