|Saying one of the sweetest prayers I've ever heard.|
|Sitting on the couch talking about our Jesus.|
I was concerned with her having a faith of her own, not just ours! Yes, we teach them the bible, and yes, we teach them Jesus is the Son of God, so as children, of course they are going to say that they believe that, because it is what we have taught them. But we really wanted to know that the Lord was leading her to make this decision. And this day, 10/15/12, her new spiritual birthday, she felt God moving. It was a great experience to get to be a part of with her, I am so blessed!

We went out to a special lunch (burger king...ick, but what she wanted), and later that day went and talked to our children's minister to make sure Cara really understood key concepts, like sin, sacrifice, baptism, etc. She was ready to get baptized and make her profession public, but since we are a part of a brand new church plant, we had to wait. But now, things are lining up and it looks like she will be baptized 5/5! We are so proud of our big girl!
