How has Jack turned 8 already?!?
In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a person has to be eight years old before they are baptized. That way, kids have the chance to learn about the Gospel of Christ before they make covenants with God. They get to choose. We were so please when Jack chose to follow Christ's example and be baptized on December 29th. He asked his dad to baptize him, which was a really special experience for them both.
All in white and ready to go!
It's so crazy to see how much this little guy has grown up! He's such a good example to us of being willing to share, to admit his mistakes, and to try his best.
(Guess who didn't want to be in the family picture?)
After he was baptized, Jack talked about how much he wants to follow Jesus' example. Man, isn't that what we should all really want to do? Congratulations, Axel Jack, we are so proud of your decision to follow Jesus' example! We all just need to remember to follow His example every day.
