Mike and I are Baptists so neither one of our boys have been baptised. We believe that a person has to have a real understanding of what it means to have Jesus in their heart before being baptised, and in fact Mike and I were only baptised three years ago.
We, as parents, decided awhile ago to raise our children in a Christian home. My boys know who Jesus is and they both read the Bible regularly. So when Brayden saw that insert in the bulletin that Sunday morning and asked if he could be baptised I was beyond proud.
The place our church holds it's yearly picnic is breathtaking. And much to Brayden's enjoyment, they provide canoes for a bit of boating.
And like the brave 8 year old boy that he is, he went under the water and made his life brand new.
And like any 4 year old boy, Gage was unimpressed, choosing to play Angry Birds on his daddy's phone.
