Baptism Flashlight Gift Idea

And many primary teachers, especially those who teach the… Read more »

LDS Baptism Printables

Last May, over Memorial Day weekend, my daughter was baptized. It was a very special day, one that we were able to celebrate with family and friends. This was our second baptism, our oldest daughter, and I was kind of excited for it because I knew that I wanted to do a ‘Rainbow’ theme after the song, “When I Am Baptized”. A month or so before her baptism I decided to create a ‘Mom & Me’ baptism journal as a way… Read more »

    My little boy (my oldest) turns 8 in a little less than 4 months! How can that be?!?! I swear I just had that kid!   The other night, after my children went to bed, I had a thought come into my mind….“Kameron is almost ready to be baptized, have you taught him about baptism?” I knew the answer…NO!

Ask the children to read Doctrine… Read more »

Have two other… Read more »
