    Sharing Time:

    A Day and a Promise to Remember

    Your baptism day is a day to remember. You may want to take a picture of the place where you were baptized to put in your Book of Remembrance. Each time you take the sacrament, you will be reminded of the promise, or covenant, you made when you were baptized. As you learn to follow Jesus’ teachings, you will be keeping your promise.

    The ordinance of baptism has been done in many places, but to be acceptable to our Heavenly Father, the one being baptized must be immersed in water by someone having proper priesthood authority.

    Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:5.)

    Instructions: Color the large picture. Use small pictures to tell the baptism story to someone you love.
