Abby's Baptism

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

Abby was baptized on Saturday, March 29th.  It was a beautiful baptism.  Abby has been so excited to be baptized from months now.  She has talked about and looked forward to this moment in her life.  She has such a sweet, little testimony.  She has chosen to be baptized because she really loves her Heavenly Father and wants to be obedient and do the things that are right.  The love of a child is amazing.  We can feel Abby’s love for her Heavenly Father.  She has such simple faith.  Looking at Abby, you can see why we are encouraged to be like little children.  Such faith, love, obedience, and happiness is what we all should work towards.

Saturday was a very wonderful day and everything really came together.  From our ward Abby was the only one being baptized, so we didn’t have to share the momment.    Abby was in charge of the program and she chose her parents to give the talks.  I guess she hasn’t grown tired of hearing us talk to her.  We’ll see if she still feels that way in 10 years!   We had most of the Hacking side of the family there and most of the Ellis side of the family as well.  Abby also had her primary teacher there and a few of the neighbor friends.  It was adorable to see Abby in her baptism jumpsuit sitting on the front row.  And then when she walked back in the room in her baptism dress with wet hair, she hasn’t looked so happy!  Although, when she was being confirmed she looked scared to death.  She does not like being the center of attention.  She is our shy child!

Abby’s response to get baptized was really precious.  We had asked her to wait a little bit to be baptized so that we could be in a new home and have everyone come over to it instead of having to go to a church or some place else.  Her response was precious.  She said, “No, I want to have the Holy Ghost.”  You can’t argue with that.  So we went ahead as scheduled. 

We are so happy that Abby was baptized.  She is such a good example to us everyday.  We hope you enjoy looking at the precious pictures of Abby’s baptism.
