the one where caroline gets baptized

our Easter weekend this year was extra special because we got to celebrate our friend caroline's baptism! rob and i were so excited to share in this special day for her!

we know caroline's family, the thompsons, through our church. jen, david, caroline, ellie, james, and cole are so special to us...they always make us feel so special & loved when we see them :)

sweet caroline is 9 years old and has decided to follow Jesus! she made this decision public by being baptized in front of our church family this past weekend. we are so proud of her - following Jesus is the best and biggest decision you can make in your life.

me & caroline right after her baptism :)


it was really special since her dad, david (one of the pastors), was the one to baptize her! i think everyone in the crowd was tearing up as he talked about his daughter and her faith.

  1. LOVE your blog and especially this post, of course. Thank you for your precious words (and drawings) of encouragement. And tall Rob, THANK YOU for taking the photos. I was able to fully be with Caroline and not worry a bit about pictures. That was such a gift to our family.
