I feel like so much was accomplished today! We started the morning with family scripture study (which we normally do at night) and then family prayer. Then Bryan and I were able to run to Sam's Club to get some food for upcoming church activities. We then picked up my daughter from High School tennis try outs. Got home, got ready and then headed up to the church for a special baptism of a 16 year old girl.
It's actually a pretty cool story. Her mom, dad, 2 sisters, and one of her brothers were baptized last month into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She learned more about the church and the Plan of Salvation from her mom and she decided to be baptized herself. The neatest part is that her father was able to baptize her himself, even as a brand new member. He received the Aaronic Priesthood and was able to perform this ordinance. What a special baptism this was, indeed. I felt the Spirit so strong as I was reminded of the personal covenants I also made with my Father in Heaven for my baptism.
