Getting Ready

Bryce will turn 8 this year. He had his Baptism Preview tonight...and he came home just so happy and feeling special. I could just tell by the smile on his face that he was feeling really excited in that "spiritual excitement" kind of way. I'm so glad.

For this past year, he's really worked on preparing himself. Where once he wouldn't even say a family prayer beyond a meal prayer (because he knew what to say and didn't have to think about it)...now he'll say family prayers with sincerity, he'll participate and sing when we are singing church songs, he's really starting to be a part of it...and it's because he's wanted it...he's wanted to prepare for baptism. I couldn't be more proud. This June/July, he'll be getting baptized and I really think he's as ready as he can be. I'm so proud of him (have I already said that?).
