My number one prayer for all my children has been that they would Love Jesus from an early age and live for Him all the days of their lives. Last year, Jolie, prayed to Jesus asking Him to be her Lord and Savior. She wanted to be baptized at church to share with everyone that Jesus is her best friend, her Lord and Savior. We talked about baptism and how it is just a symbol that shows everyone about your love and commitment to Jesus, similar to how wedding bands symbolize a love and marriage commitment to each spouse. We met with the leaders at church, she shared her story. On April 24, baby number 4 was baptized showing that she loves Jesus.

Jolie said she was nervous, and that her knees were shaking, but she did great. Her wonderful leaders gave her an awesome new pink Bible and a cupcake from Sprinkles. We celebrated with the family after church at California Pizza Kitchen.

During the time that Jolie was baptized, our pastor was preaching on the labels that define us. He reminded us not to let anyone but God speak over us. Many times we allow someone else to label or define us with negative words of death. During the label maker series we were reminded that God speaks to us that we are chosen, we are holy, wer are able, we are heirs, we have purpose and we are alive. On one of the Sundays, we could stop and get a photo made with a label that we thought defined us especially. Jolie wanted to have her photo made and she chose ALIVE. What an awesome choice! She knows at age 6 that she is ALIVE in CHRIST.
