Six years before she was born she had a name.
On our honeymoon, Bryan and I chose the name”Ellie”, Elizabeth Leland.
We always thought we would be adopting a little girl since girls are few and far between in the Isbell family.
Our hearts were overjoyed to speak her name over her on March 14.
Elizabeth means: my God is a vow
While the meaning and Biblical significance were important, closer to our hearts was the legacy both names carry.
Elizabeth is a name that has been in my family through many generations as a first and middle name. It is my middle name.
Elizabeth Davis “Dink” is a great woman of faith. She has helped to direct and shape my faith and is a spiritual grandmother to me.
Leland was the name of a dear friend from college who was a worship leader in our campus ministry and sang in our wedding. She has the heart of a worshiper and taught us how to worship in spirit and truth.
We want our sweet Ellie to have great faith and genuine love for the Father and have the heart of a worshiper. I am humbled by the honor of getting to watch her grow and walk out the plans her Heavenly Father has for her.
