In our church, turning 8 is a very important birthday. Eight is the age of accountability. (It is around that age that a child begins to understand choices and consequences. It is the time in life where you are old enough to see the difference between right and wrong).
In January, Nate turned eight and was baptized on February 6th.
It was a wonderful service with sweet testimonies and many tears of joy.
We are so grateful to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives. We are blessed to be able to know that Jesus is our Savior and to make the choice to be baptized showing Him that we accept Him and His teachings.
After the baptism, we went to Nate's house for lunch and game playing. I also took just a couple of pictures of Nate and of his sister Emily.
