And her mom (that's me) planned the program and gave a talk about the baptismal covenant. I was glad I had the opportunity to assign myself to speak. I love teaching the concepts of mourning with those that mourn, comforting those that stand in need of comfort, bearing one another's burdens and standing as a witness of God.
And as a member of my daughter's Primary presidency, I also made her a memento on the same topic.
Her aunt and grandma came from Arizona for the event.
My side of the family participated, too. My dad gave the closing prayer and my mom and I sang, Can a Little Child Like Me? (My mom and my sister are also responsible for the adorable french braids.)
I asked my niece, the most recently baptized member of our family, to give a talk. She did a wonderful job.
The little brothers did not have any jobs on the program, but the oldest said a lot anyway, like, "My cousin is going to talk? What is she going to say?"
And we watched a couple short videos:
After her baptism, I went to help her get changed and found her in the dressing room, crying while grinning from ear to ear. I am so glad it was a moving experience for her.
