  • Happy Birthday Hailey!!!
  • Today is my baby daughter’s – Hailey Breanne Charles – fourth birthday.

    I use the word “baby” for my own sake. She is not a baby anymore. Ask her, and she will quickly tell you that she is a big girl.

    But, of course, she will always be daddy’s baby.

    I begged for Hailey. Literally, begged.

    More specifically, I wanted another son. But I could not be more happy to have this been given a precious little girl.

    Hailey is Crystal. So is Natalie. But while Natalie has more of my personality, Hailey is Crystal. On steroids! But this is just another reason for me to love her so deeply.

    I look forward to getting a front row seat to see what the Lord will do in Hailey’s life. And I count it a great privilege to be used of God for her nurture and development.

    I pray daily for her salvation and that she would grow as Jesus grew – in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

    Happy birthday Hailey!

    Who loves you?
