". . . show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism."
Alma 7:15 (Book of Mormon)
Saturday, Sept 5th, Shaunie was baptized and confirmed at our stake center. Some of my family were able to make it and some of Rachel's family also came from Utah to help celebrate this special day. It was a good experience for both of us. When I was in high school I had the chance to baptize my little sister, Kristin. I had other baptism experiences throughout my mission, but where baptism fits in to the great plan of happiness really hit me when I had the opportunity to baptize my own daughter. It puts into perspective a more complete understanding of eternal families, and the steps we take so we can be together forever.
Shaunie was excited and she looked beautiful.
Here are a few pictures from Saturday's baptism. . .
