Anniversary of my Baptism as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ

The three-year anniversary of my baptism as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ.
I remember opening my eyes during the opening prayer to look around the room at everyone who was there to support me: Derek & Shelby Hall, my ward members, many other close friends, and my parents.

When we were in the font, I looked up and saw such a lovely group of friends and family crowded around to watch. I took a minute to make eye contact with a few people, and then Derek pronounced the baptismal prayer. Down I went the plunge. I was warm, floating. As I was lifted back up to the air, I was lightheaded, refreshed, with a new sense of well-being and a revitalized purpose in life.

As the service closed, I was able to visit with everyone who came to support me in this major life step. I took pictures with as many people as possible to add to my photo journal to remember the day. Even then, I wondered if some friends came out of plain curiosity. But I prayed that as they experienced this with me, they would understand why I chose to do this.

I felt peace. I had a new start to my life, a second chance to find true joy and meaning in life! August 19, 2017, forever changed my life!
