Aana's Baptism...It's great to be 8!
This weekend was wonderful for our family. Our oldest, Aana was baptized. In our faith, we baptize our children after they are 8 years old...and Aana has been counting down the days since her birthday. She has such a wonderful sensitivity to the spirit and such a desire to learn about Christ. She amazes me! She set a goal in sept. to read the entire Book of Mormon before she got baptized...and that is a HUGE goal for a girl that was seven. She worked so HARD...read chapters everynight...and studied with Larry and I trying to understand the hard words. (if you have never read the Book of Mormon...it is an AMAZING book and is another testament of Jesus Christ and has old language just like the Bible.) It has over 500 pages and challenging words...but it is SO worth reading and she did it...and it was a wonderful experience to watch her reach this goal.
