Taj is 8!!!

Taj turned 8 years old on Sept. 6. This was a special birthday because in our church the age of 8 is the age you are baptized at. :) Baptism is a covenant we make to follow Jesus Christ throughout our lives. When we are baptized, we take Christ’s name upon us. As Christians, we seek to follow Him in all aspects of our lives. You can read more about what we believe HERE.

Taj made the decision to be baptized and I am so proud of him for this!! Sei's parents were able to come from California. Seiuli played a beautiful rendition he arranged of "A Child's Prayer", Alec spoke about baptism... I really loved the song we sang at the end- Taj picked it. ("If I Listen with my Heart")  It was beautiful all around. I am continuously surprised by how blessed I have been when it comes to my children. I am not perfect, but I do my best. And thankfully they are such good, GOOD kids. :)
