Just three days ago, our youngest son and daughter-in-law welcomed their first child into the world—Alivia Love Chappell.

Alivia is our fifth grandchild. Her arrival marks the last of our children to have their first child. Matt is the youngest of our children, and it’s incredible to me that our “baby” now has a baby of his own. Where did the time fly?

Terrie and I are so grateful for the miraculous blessings of God in our family—first in giving us four wonderful children, then giving four godly spouses to them, and now giving us beautiful grandchildren. We’re thankful for God’s grace in our family.

Alivia’s name means “olive tree.” We’re praying that she will be saved at an early age and will live a full and fruitful life for the Lord.
