The Years Pass Quickly

Graduation... a time to reflect on the beautiful woman of God that is ending one era of her life and walking into a new era.

A mere 18 years ago, on May 10th, Morgan Elizabeth Dahlgren was born in Modesto, California.  Our first born.  Beautiful... sweet... adorable...

She was a spitter-upper, thus most pictures included a bib!  Pacifiers were also a "must"!  The diaper bag was always stocked with multiple outfits, bibs and pacifiers.

Soon her world was filled with two sisters and one brother, all before she turned five.  Her leadership, caring & nurturing qualities quickly emerged and shown brightly as she helped us out in so many ways.

As a child who grew up - literally - in church, she came to know Jesus as her Lord & Savior at a young age.  Her love for Jesus is displayed in her care for others.  Often you'll find her going to a friend's house at all hours of the day and night to listen to their hurts and praying for them.  Music has become an amazing gift that Morgan uses to worship God and lead others to the presence of God.

On Friday, June 3rd, Morgan along with the Class of 2011 of NorthWood High School will be graduating.  We are so proud of all she has accomplished through her schools years, the choices she's made and the testimony she's displayed consistently, and the woman of God that she has become.  We're praying God will continue to guide and protect her, and give her wonderful years of ministry.

In two weeks she'll be heading out to Thailand with Adventures In Missions for a month-long missions experience reaching out to the young women caught in the human trafficking scene.  Our prayer is that God would protect Morgan and each gal on the team, and that His love will be shown in very practical and caring ways to the young gals they spend time with each day.  Please join us in praying for this team - June 16th through July 15th.
