The perfect name.

When we found out we were having a little boy, Jason and I were both completely clueless with what we would name him. we had names that we liked, but we had none that we could both agree on.
I was about 20 weeks pregnant when I decided I needed to pray and ask heavenly father what name we should pick. All I knew, was that I needed my son to have a strong name. He was my fourth pregnancy, he held on to me and he knew how much I needed him. he was my miracle.
That night, I dreamt of my little boy, I held him in my arms and rocked him back and forth. I looked into his beautiful big eyes, and I called him by name. I called him Urijah. It was the dream I needed, it brought me peace and comfort and it gave me my sons name.
The next morning, before I even got tell Jason about my dream, he asked me how I felt about the name Urijah. I was seriously speechless and began to cry. I told him about the dream I had the night before. I didn't think Jason was going to believe me, it was such a unique name. At first I wasn't even sure if I liked it. but after a few days of thinking about it, I just knew it felt right.
I can honestly say, now that Urijah is here with us. That it fits him perfectly. I couldn't even began to imagine him as anything else.

Urijah means, "God is my light" & I feel that his name was very fitting for our situation. Without my heavenly father, and the help of my husband, there's no way I ever could have had the strength to keep trying for our little family.

people ask me all the time why Urijah? well, now you know.

p.s. Urijah is pronounced, ur-eye-ah. the J throws ya off!


  1. I just read this and it gave me chills cause my last pregnancy I went in labor and they couldn't stop me at 31 weeks they prepared me for the worse but gave me high hopes I remember I looked at my husband and he was signing emergency c section papers and he said he's gonna be born now and he doesn't even have a name they pretty much kept me knocked out but I had a dream the dream was I had my son natural he weigh 5 pounds 13 oz and the nurse said what's baby boys name and in the dream I was thinking he doesn't have a name but I heard a and voice say Ezekiel when I woke up my labor had just about stopped on its own out of the blue and they delayed the surgery and I looked at my husband and he said it again about him being born without a name I said but he has one and on the count of three we both will say it not even discussing that name and on the count of three we both said Ezekiel and he held in there until 35 weeks then he was born 5 pounds 13 oz without having a c section we had a few scares after his birth but he came home a few weeks later and today he is a healthy 21 month old full of energy but I know he has a big calling in life he has a work to do for jesus
