At our house a child's 13th birthday and 13th year are very important. We as parents are making a large commitment to help her grow and get stronger as a Christian and a woman. That will including reading some books and studying together. It will also include a special trip that Ruth and one of us will go on with her. She will choose and plan the trip herself. It is a big deal. (Thanks to Pastor Mark Batterson for the idea and example of making his children's 13th year special.)
Ruth Megan Harrison is our middle child. She is so special to her parents, and we know that she is extra special to her God. We are proud of her and can't wait to see what God has in store for her this year and in the years to come.
Happy Birthday, Ruth. We love you!
