Baptism comes from the act of Jesus being baptized by John the Baptist. Baptism by immersion is a saving ordinance and necessary to enter into the Celestial Kingdom.
“The 13 Articles of Faith”,  help explain beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  The Fourth Article states:    “We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of  hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

“Our faith in the Lord moves us to the third principle of the gospel, which is “baptism by immersion for the remission of sins” by one who has priesthood authority. The Savior commanded that we all must be born again: “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Latter-day Saints accept baptism as an essential saving ordinance that is required of all people. Through baptism we covenant to take upon us the Lord’s name and honor it by keeping His commandments. He, in turn, promises us the guiding and enlightening presence of His Spirit. The fourth principle of the gospel is the “laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.”  -JOSEPH B. WIRTHLIN    “Christians in Belief and Action”  General Conference October 1996

Baptism for Latter-day Saint children is at the age of accountability, which is when you are old enough to understand right and wrong and are accountable for your choices.  This is when a child reaches their eighth birthday.

“Only when a child reaches [the] age of accountability, set by the Lord at eight years of age, … is their baptism essential. Before that age, they are innocent.”  -President Boyd K. Packer “Children” Ensign May 2002

When you are baptized girls are dressed in a white jumper or dress and boys wear a white overall or romper.  You are baptized by immersion by one who has the priesthood authority to do so.  After this you will change into dry clothing and will then be confirmed a member of the church and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  At this time it would be nice to be wearing a beautiful LDS Baptism Dress.  It is not necessary, but fun to see the newly baptized little girl wearing their new white dress to church during the weeks to come, following this special time in their lives.

Miracle Baby

   When I was growing up I never imagined that having a family would be such a challenge.  During the beginning of our long journey a dear friend gave me the following quote:

       {"Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting.  We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we wanted them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come."}-Anonymous

   How true those words are.  Our children are so loved and appreciated.  It was a difficult journey to get them and the love we have for them....well, there are no words to express how deep that love is.  We have four incredible miracle stories.  At a later time I will post about them.  Right now I would love to hear about your stories.  I would like to post them on this blog so please e-mail me with your story and a photo of your {miracle}.
