Let me state outright that, as a genealogist, I am jumping up and down, pointing to this Christian wedding gift idea as my absolute choice. In fact, if I could throw myself at your feet and beg you to consider it, I would. Please imagine me doing just that.
Why the passion and pleading? It is because I have spent decades researching my own family tree. Therefore I know how utterly priceless family Bibles with genealogical pages can be.
They survive each generation, passed on as heirlooms to the next. Inside those sacred leaves valuable information is preserved. (Yes, the Gospel as well!) Any family historian can hunt through the archives for dusty, staid names in a register. But often ancestral records can be missed, overlooked in the general melee of hundreds of other family's names.
Our ancestors and kin don't truly come to life, until you find them all listed together - in your gt-grandfather or mother's own handwriting, with personal notes of love - in a Bible.
The Scripture itself will be a wonderful Christian wedding gift, as couples form a family unit, then children arrive. But the truly priceless value of those family history pages only really comes into its own with the generations to come.
Thank you very much. I have more to add to this too, which I'll hopefully have chance to do over the course of today.
This is a wonderful complete selection of gifts. Love your personal take on things as well.
That was one of my favourites too! I thought it was a very unique Christian gift idea.
The measuring spoon set is a super cute idea. I have a lot of friend's weddings happening a lot right now (must be my age group I guess), and I could see several of these fitting them well :)
