Not by works...


This morning Maddy was baptized in front of our church and family.


She has talked about this day for a long time.


What an honor as a parent to witness such an occasion.


WE are so blessed to be a part of a wonderful church family!


Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewal of the Holy Spirit.


After Maddy's baptism we enjoyed a good ol' BBQ Brisket with family.

Thanks guys for making Maddy's day so special.

We love you!

  7. We had a baptism at church yesterday too. Always a very special service because each one has a testimony that speaks so clearly even if they don't speak out loud.

    I know your mama heart is overflowing with joy :)
