Here he is!



Elijah Calvin Grant

Born: September 30th – 12:58pm

Weight: 7lb. 12 oz.

Length: 20 inches
“Elijah stepped forward and prayed: "O LORD, God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, O LORD, answer me, so these people will know that you, O LORD, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again." Then the fire of the LORD fell…” - 1 Kings 18:36-38

Elijah’s name means “The LORD is my God.” The biblical Elijah is a hero to us and was a great man of God who believed that God would show His power even in the midst of hopeless circumstances. Elijah’s middle names come from Taya’s grandpa Cal, an incredibly generous, kind, and compassionate man who loved the Lord and cherished each moment with his family. We pray that Elijah would live his life knowing and proclaiming that the LORD is his God, that he would pray with faith and expectantly wait for God’s answer, and that God would make him a great HistoryMaker all around the world.

We are so thankful for this incredible gift from God! Thanks for your love and prayers,

ross and taya

Precious gift to a precious couple. May the Lord continue to reveal Himself to you as you nurture Elijah and Isaiah into the boys and men God calls them to be. Susie and I are thrilled for you. May God see fit to bring swift healing to Taya and sufficient sleep to you both in the coming days.
Be of good cheer,
Rick
