Celebrating a birthday and baptism…

by Lisa on June 9, 2014

On Memorial Day weekend we had so much to celebrate. My daughter’s 7th birthday was on that Saturday followed by her baptism the next day. I cannot believe Grace is now 7 and love knowing she has asked Jesus into her heart is priceless. It could not have been a more memorable weekend. Grace accepted Jesus as her savior almost 2 years ago, but we wanted to wait for her to be baptized until she was a little older, making sure she  better understood the meaning of baptism. She has been asking to be baptized for a while.
7th Birthday

A big day, it was Grace’s birthday and later in the day her party at the local skating rink.

Birthday Skate Party

Party fun at the rink in her new roller blades.  Yes, she is sporting a Hello Kitty shirt and pink leopard print capris. She is a fashionista.
Baptism Day

The next day our church hosted a baptism service at a ranch outside of town, which had a lake and pavilion.  It was a wonderful day.  My husband, Chris, baptized Grace.  It was an awesome moment to see my child baptized by her own father.
The video below  is our pastor, Eric, talking with Grace before the baptism. He was asking her why she wants to be baptized. So precious.

Below is a 4 minute video of the some of the people baptized with Grace. I hope you will watch and be blessed as these people have taken a step in faith and want to show the world they are followers of Christ. Grace is the second to last one baptized on the video.


Alway remember… Always grateful….

Some would say the official start to summer begins this weekend with the celebration and remembrance of Memorial Day.  We will still have another week of school, but the neighborhood pool will be open for business.  Does the idea of the pool and a swimsuit cause anxiety in you?  I have to admit, being a […]

It is that busy time of year… kind of like the weeks leading up to Christmas, but not.  The school year is coming to a close and Spring has arrived.  There are dance recitals, ball games, end of year parties, teacher gifts to prepare, summer plans to nail down, plus all the regular weekly activities.  […]

What are you reading and is it changing your heart?

May 14, 2014

I have always been a reader. I loved to read a good book of fiction that would draw me in and transport me on an adventure, try to solve a mystery, visit a past period in time…. The list goes on.   But, I have never been a big non-fiction reader: faith-based self help, history, biographies….never […]

Wishes for my girl…

May 8, 2014

This picture always cracks me up.  It was taken three years ago and whenever looking at it, I cannot help thinking it looks like a mugshot. That eyebrow slightly raised and semi smirk….. is she secretly scheming to take over the world?  I hope so.  I want Grace to always feel she can do anything […]
