#4 It’s been said that one of the biggest challenges as a parent is choosing godparents, but in my experience, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The two of you are so exceptional, even more so as a couple, that this has been one of the easiest decisions I’ve had to make. Thank you!

#10 Thank you, Godparents, for witnessing the baptism of our little one. We know you share in the love and joy that this celebration brought as much as we do. We are confident that you will continue to provide support, love, and guidance from this day forward.

Thank You to Godmother

#18 They say it takes a village to raise a child, and it gives my mind peace and heart joy that you have agreed to be an essential person in that village.

Thank You to Godfather

#36 There are some things that just work better together – peanut butter and jelly, eggs and bacon, burgers and fries. It’s almost unthinkable to do it any other way. Just like it’s unthinkable to raise my child without you by my side. So thank you for being so irreplaceable. I couldn’t imagine a better godfather.

#37 There is no one in this world that will test you as much as a child. From toddler to teenager, they learn how to press buttons you didn’t even know you had. That’s why it takes someone of real character to fill the shoes of godfather. Thank you for being up to the challenge.

#38 Choosing a godfather is basically deciding which man in your life is closest to a superhero. For me, it wasn’t even a question. Of course, it’s you. Thank you for being the champion in my child’s corner.

#40 It is hard to describe the privilege of having you as our child’s godfather. Your acceptance of the role filled our hearts to overflowing with thankfulness. We are eternally grateful to you and look forward to the impact you will have on our family for many happy years to come.

#41 If life is a game, then the role of the Godfather is like a coach. The role needs someone with wisdom and experience who can set an excellent example for the younger generation. I can’t think of anybody who ticks all of those boxes the way you do. Thank you so much for helping to train my child for success in life.

#42 On this day, the baptism of our child, we want to show appreciation to you, the Godfather of our little one. Your presence and support mean the world to us and we are grateful that you have agreed to help guide our child down the path of God, together.

#43 You give so much of yourself to our family and hold a unique place in our hearts. We know you will be a natural godfather to our child and cannot wait to share good times together. We appreciate you and are thankful for this new family partnership.

#44 Agreeing to become the Godfather of your friend’s child is perhaps the greatest gift of friendship that you can offer. So I want to thank you for your generous acceptance. I know that you will be a remarkable influence and inspiration to my child.

#45 You are a great guy and a wonderful human being. That’s why I’m so delighted you have done me the honor of becoming my child’s Godfather. Your strength of character and nobility of spirit is a superb example of how you should make your way through this complicated world. Thank you!

#46 As I recall it, growing up can be a bit of a challenge. And I’m about to find out that parenting is a tricky job too. That’s why I’m so delighted that you have agreed to help me out raising my child. You are a super guy, and I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have as my child’s Godfather.

#47 You are exactly the right person we want to be a role model for our child’s life. We are grateful you have agreed to take on the responsibility of godfather. We hope it will be as much a joy to you as it will be for us. You mean so much to our family.

#48 Thank you for being my child’s Godfather. I had no hesitation in choosing you, and am thankful you accepted the responsibility. I knew immediately that if anything were to happen to my wife and me, that you would be the one to raise [insert name] as we would. We are both fortunate to have you in our lives.

#49 Every child needs a strong presence to guide them through life, and I cannot tell you how thankful I am that you answered the call of duty for [insert name]. The potential pool of candidates for the role was pretty big, but my wife and I knew there was one clear choice. Thank you sincerely for agreeing to be my child’s Godfather.

#50 With you as my child’s Godfather, I rest well at night knowing that my child’s future is in good hands. The positive influence you will have on [his/her] life is the icing on the cake. I deeply thank you for accepting the responsibility of Godfather to my precious child.
