Praise and celebration continue for life of Abby Lou Smith

2017-04-23 - Columbia, KY - Photo from the family collection.
A mighty praise and dedication service was held Easter Sunday when Abby Lou Smith, pictured here with her trademark smile in her sweet little glasses, was "presented to our Savior through infant Baptism," surrounded by her family and congregation of Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church prayer warriors. And the praise continues every second of every day. From her "much too early birth" to her present day, as she continues growing from baby stage into toddlerhood. Her parents and grandparents shared their walk and the bible verses that helped them hang onto their faith through the darkest moments. Clicking 'read more' takes you to the story and more photos underneath it. Any family who has experienced anything close to having a child's life threatened -- as ours did -- will find their testimony heartening and helpful to keeping the faith. -- Linda Waggener
