Marley’s Baptism

Our wonderful friend and now fellow Latter-day Saint Marley was baptized this past Saturday. We are so proud of her. It was not very easy because some of her family did not want her to be baptized. She battled with the decision for some time. Ultimately because of her wonderful faith, reading in the Book of Mormon and praying sincerely, she received an answer from Heavenly Father that she could not suppress. We asked her what changed. She said, “Heavenly Father told me it was the right thing to do.” So, with great courage, she did it.

The baptismal service was really beautiful. Her friend gave a talk on Baptism and the Holy Ghost, she asked me to sing “I am a Child of God”. She bore the most wonderful testimony after her baptism about how she knows the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. She said that it took some time, but after taking it all step by step and following direction from God, she now KNOWS it’s true.

Her Dad, Stepmom and sisters came to her confirmation on Sunday to support her. The confirmation was wonderful as well.

She is so special and I am so glad that I had the chance to teach and know her. She will be a wonderful example to her family, and the blessings are only beginning for her. We will be great friends for life.
