My Baptism Day

Now that Emma is 8 years old, she is old enough to get baptized. She is old enough to know the difference between right and wrong. She has made the choice. She still may not know what to do in EVERY situation, but with baptism comes the Gift of the Holy Ghost, who will help her make good choices.

We started off the day with some special gifts for her special day. Grandma Murray sent a bracelet with her name on it. Rebekah gave her this CTR ring to help her remember to "Choose The Right". We also gave her a new set of scriptures and purse to carry them in.

It was a beautiful day. Grandma and Grandpa Chase were with us. We were so happy to have so many friends with us to help celebrate this day.

After the service, we invited everyone back to our house for refreshments. It was perfect weather to be out on the deck. I think I counted around 55 people. We all had a great time.
