Cami's Baptism

Before midnight makes this feel "too late," here's a brief record of Cami's baptism on Sunday, 5 December 2010.

There's always challenges when it comes to making covenants. My personal challenge that day was morning sickness. Cami's challenge (which didn't bother her at all) was that the closet with white baptismal clothing was distinctly lacking a Cami-sized jumpsuit. Thankfully, when I called one of her best friend's mom, there was an immediate offer of letting her wear the dress that all four of their daughters have worn. And Cami felt like a princess, if her prancing was any indication.

We kept it in the family -- I'm not big on turning sacred events into productions -- so my mother & I gave the talks. Jason performed the ordinance (which Bishop Riozzi remarked was done "very efficiently"), as well as confirming her with the aid of Bishop Riozzi & a family friend Simon Boycott.

I realize this is a pretty factual account, but honestly, I'm not sure what to say. Except that I'm proud of Cami for wanting to follow Jesus Christ.

It was my privilege to be there and to be asked by Cami--and, yes, she did prance and enjoy that beautiful dress:)--to give a talk. I am so grateful for the Gospel and for dear family members who make those special covenants.
Love you all.
