Water Baptism

My youngest asked to be baptized. In our family, our children must have demonstrated that not only have they asked Jesus in their hearts, but that they understand what following Jesus in water baptism means.  She was able to do that. Her baptism was yesterday.  

Here is a picture of her afterwards.......so sweet.

For her testimony she said "My name is Jenny. I love Jesus. He lives in my heart and He is the best thing that ever happened to me". She came up with all that on her own.  It was so sweet and precious.



ETA: Her Daddy being a licensed minister did the baptism, which made it really special.

I will add the video in a bit.

How sweet!
My six year old and 7 year old got saved a few weeks ago. It just warms your heart! They are already talking about baptism but since it isn't necessary, I'm having them wait just a bit.

Yes, it isn't necessary.  Waiting is fine too.  She has been asking for some time, but we weren't sure she understood until a few weeks ago.

I think it's great. My oldest was baptized at 5. We are just worried that Izzy will end up freaking out when he actually gets in front of everyone (he has autism and doesn't like crowds paying attention to him). And if course with them, if one does it, the other has to. I love this she though, they ares do eager to learn and ask question after question, things I would never even think of. It's neat to experience the excitement through them, kind of wakes you up spiritually, ya know?

I completely understand. Our oldest was older than the girls when he had his done. We chose to wait with him until he was older because he has sensory issues.  He was truly ready when it happened.  He thought he was ready before, but we knew he wasn't because he wouldn't get his face under water in a pool when playing in a pool. 

Yes it does wake you up, child like faith is so beautiful.

It's great that she understood.  Our 7 year old really understood and was able to be baptized, but our 9 year old just still does not quite "get it," if you know what I mean.  Congrats!

Yes, each child comprehends at different ages.
