The main reason today is important to our family is because it is the day in our faith that we go to church and honor "Lottie" Diggs Moon by giving an offering to support international mission work.
Who was she you ask? Read my husband's essay about her and why we chose to name our first daughter after her.
And while there is no special offering associated with the namesake of our second daughter, you can also read Bruce's essay about why we named her after another international missionary. Continuing our tradition of giving our daughter's strong namesakes and legacies.
