This book is dedicated to my second born, my first son Colin Alexander Meek. The world gained a HERO on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 at 4:06 PM.
May your life be blessed as you serve the Lord and live up to your name: “victorious defender of mankind.”
Colin, I don’t want you to ever grow up feeling a pressure or a standard set upon you to be a strong, perfect, super or everyone’s hero. I simply like to use a superhero theme over your life because I know that God has big things in store for you, my son. God can use you to do supernatural things on this earth to advance his Kingdom! He can use you to do mighty things— where everyone will look at you and see that there’s something special about you. Something “superhero-ish,” if you will. That one thing will make you different; that one thing will make you stand out in the midst of everyone else is that you will have the one true hero (Jesus Christ) as your Lord and Savior (Matthew 5:14-16). Everyone loves a hero. But even heroes have problems that they must face. I want you to hold firm to the truth of God and His word. He promises that you will never face your problems alone. He promises to remain faithful to you. He promises that He will never leave your side (Psalms 24:8 & Matthew 28:20).
”Be strong and brave. Do not be afraid. Do not lose hope. I am the Lord your God, I will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

“I am my Beloved’s, and my Beloved is mine.” Song of Solomon 6:3
This book is the first book that my wife and I have partnered together on. Beloved was inspired by the 40 Blog Post that were written each week as our daughter (our firstborn) grew in the womb. These short stories are now a collection built into one book as a chance for each new parent to be to experience a beautiful relationship unfold between the Creator and His creation ~ nine months in the making. ~
Each weekly chapter is filled with a short story where baby and God are conversing back and forth, encouraging scriptures that can be used as short devotionals, and there will also be a place where each parent can journal their thoughts to God and/or to their baby.
