A Boy!

We are pleased to announce the birth of our son, John William Pruett! He was born on his Great Grandma Jan’s birthday, Wednesday, 16 July, 2014 at 11:06 pm and weighed 9 pounds, 10 ounces. He measured 21.5 inches tall. John William is named after Zachary’s dad, William John “Bill” Pruett, a man who means the world to our entire family. He is a true gentleman and a man whose faith in Christ and willingness to help others will set a godly example for our son.  John means “God is gracious” and William means “Strong-willed warrior.” We pray that our son would choose to be a warrior in the fight for truth and be a strong witness of God’s grace.  Fittingly, John is also named after John the Baptist, a perfect choice for our son since his momma was named after the Biblical Elizabeth, and daddy Zachary’s name is derived from the Biblical priest Zechariah! We are so happy to have our little boy, and we ask you to pray for good health for the entire family and a smooth transition to a family of four. Pictures coming soon!
