Boy #3 Through the Gate...

Asher chose to be baptized and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on November 1, 2014. Mom and Dad gave him the traditional gift of a white towel with his name and baptism date embroidered on it to use after he was baptized. The morning of his baptism, Asher was asking different questions about what would happen that day. When he asked, "Do they empty the water after each person is baptized?" I told him no and he exclaimed, "But what if one of the other kids pees in the water?!?!"

Mrs. Bingham, Asher's teacher, came to celebrate with him. We are so impressed that she devotes so many of her Saturdays attending her students baptisms.

The next morning we found this reading chart for the Book of Mormon taped to the fridge. It looks like Asher has plans to read the entire Book and I especially love his comment at the bottom, "531 pages = super soft heart!!!"
