“Buried with Christ in Baptism, Raised to Walk in Newness of Life!”
Yesterday was such a special day for us! My sweet Lila Gayle made the step of faith to be baptized! It was one of those moments as a parent when your heart wants to leap out of your chest because it is bursting with joy! Lila is 8, so when she came to us over the summer and told us that she accepted Jesus into her heart, and that she wanted to be baptized, we wanted to make sure she fully understood. When we asked her what it means to become a Christian and be baptized, she gave us a mature and true answer. She said she knows that Jesus died for her sins, and that He is her Savior, and that she wanted to be baptized so she can show others that she accepted Jesus into her heart.
After the service, we had a special lunch at home to celebrate! It was such a perfect day, and to top it off, my sweet niece Caroline was baptized that night! Pretty cool that they were baptized on the same day 🙂

I am so proud of you, Lila! I know that this is just the beginning of your journey with the Lord. I have prayed that God would call you to Him and that you would answer his call, and I am praising and thanking Him that you did! I love you, baby girl!!!
