Caleb's Baptism

This past Sunday was a very special day for our family.  Our youngest child, Caleb, was happily baptized at our church during the later Sunday morning service.  Purposefully choosing to do this when one is 26 years old almost guarantees that this event will be quite emotional.  And, it truly was.

Many families choose to have their children baptized when they are infants.  However, we have preferred that it would happen when the child himself chooses to do it.  Caleb decided on his own, had his testimony filmed during the week before the baptism, and finally did the deed on Sunday.

If you'd like to see the video of his testimony and the baptism, you can watch it here on the church website's baptism page.  Many people say participating in baptism feels like making a brand new start in life.

How did we celebrate afterwards?  By heading to the Texas Roadhouse restaurant.  The men in the house wanted some very large pieces of meat.

Some things never change.
