Our girl on her special day.
“I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
and I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.” 
—When I Am Baptized, Children’s Songbook

“And now as ye are desirous to come into the fold of God, and to be called his people, and are willing to bear one another’s burdens, that they may be light;
“Yea, and are willing to mourn with those that mourn; yea, and comfort those that stand in need of comfort, and to stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places that ye may be in, even until death, that ye may be redeemed of God, and be numbered with those of the first resurrection, that ye may have eternal life—
“[Be] baptized in the name of the Lord, as a witness before him that ye have entered into a covenant with him, that ye will serve him and keep his commandments, that he may pour out his Spirit more abundantly upon you.”  —Mosiah 18:8–10
We are truly blessed to have such a sweet child of God in our home. The Lord understands that when children reach the age of accountability, they are well capable of making decisions affecting their eternity. Our daughter knew what she was doing and was happy with her decision. We are thankful for her strong, righteous example.
