Finally, a Name for our Daughter

Catherine and I would like to announce our daughter's American name: Rebecca Ketziah Cook.

Rebecca Ketziah Cook

Update on our Journey toward Parenthood:
We leave for China in about two weeks, on Wed February 28th. Thus I will actually miss the MAR-SBL. First things first, and this journey is a major, major event in the lives of me and Catherine. Any readers of this blog who are interested in the journey can certainly follow it on our other blog. I'll post the link again before we go. I should have internet access in China. Also, while I'm gone would any of you like to help keep this blog running? If you might be able to help even just a little, shoot me an email or leave a comment below. Thanks!

The name Ketziah is from the last chapter of the book of Job.
Job gave his daughters names that expressed extravagant love and joy. This name means "Spice" in Hebrew, and Rebecca comes from the Sichuan provence of China, known for its very spicy, hot food...

May she grow in grace and knowledge with every month and year.

The number of references to fragrances in Song of Songs is overwhelming. Someday, Rebecca will come to appreciate that.

Blessings on your family and traveling mercies. I'm sure you already know this, but don't be shy about reaching out to your seminary family for help as you enter this new phase in your lives.
