Many people have asked me how we landed on the name “Clark Annalea” for our baby girl. It’s easy really. Luke & I have been surrounded by strong women in our lives. From family members to close friends, we have been shown what it means to love like Jesus, work hard, & love even harder by the women we’ve grown up around.
Clark comes from Luke’s grandmother on his father’s side.
Clark Elizabeth raised her family well on a farm in Tennessee. She was said by many to been the glue that held her family together. Her passion for her family, her strong will, & ability to whip up the best cornbread are among the many traits that we pray our southern Miss will gain from her great grandmother & namesake.
Anna Lea, a family friend, was one of the most dear women in my life. Clark’s middle name will forever be a reminder of the life of one of the most genuine, life-giving woman I’ve ever known. She was the first text on my wedding day, voicemail on every job interview, never missed a birthday, prayer warrior kind of woman. She loved her people & loved Jesus even more. [I share more about her here.]
I’ve never been so sure of anything than the name of our little girl. These two women in our lives have impacted so many by their love & faith.
Our little love, Clark Annalea Frank, will no doubt be among the next generation of strong women.
