what JOY!

Easter 2015 will be a day we won't ever forget. Our daughter, Rachel, was baptized and gave a public profession of her faith in Jesus! It was a day filled with so much joy and thankfulness to God for all he's done and is doing in her life.
Here are the video clips alone with amazing photos our good friend Jason took.

Her words in the video are 100% hers. She wrote out what she wanted to say and memorized it so she could speak boldly in front of everyone and she asked us if she could do it on her own :)

Also, she has been corrected and knows that her favorite verse is in Romans chapter SIX and not chapter three  ;-) 

{this link will take you to the video where she spoke- this video comes before the actual baptism just FYI}

Galatians 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."


Leaving for church, Easter morning. 

we had the pleasure of being at our good friend Bryan's wedding on Saturday. 
Such a joy to see him and his new bride Katie begin their life together.

Melissa,
Thank you so much! It was an incredible blessing to witness this and I've been praying since that God would continue to grow her boldness and love for Him.
