That Time I Got Baptized

Yesterday, I gave my heart to Jesus Christ and officially joined the Christian family that I have already felt apart of for some time now (to read my journey go HERE). The day really was special. My pastor made a special effort to include me throughout the service, tying me into the children's message and letting Matt and I help with communion. There were a lot of happy tears yesterday and I was overwhelmed by the love I felt from my fiance, his family, my friend Shauna, my pastor, and our congregation.

My baptism could not have come at a more perfect time. I have honestly been so faithless lately, shoving my time with God aside due to being "exhausted' and "too busy." I knew I needed something to really kick me back into gear again. Yesterday morning I got back into my quiet time and just prayed over the day. I really felt God during this time, something I sadly hadn't felt so strongly in a while. The rest of the day just fell right into place. God is so good. I can't wait to see what he does in mine and Matt's lives in the coming years together.

Matt caught this sweet candid of myself and a sweet member of our church, Bart. 


My friend Shauna and I.
Oh boy am I lucky. 
My sweet pastor who played a HUGE role in my coming to Christ and getting so involved with the church.
My sweet sponsors Linda and Mark. I am moving in with them next week until Matt and I move to Missouri and I can't wait!
