Ashton gets baptized!

April 19th, 2015

Ashton's baptism day was really nice. Friends from church, primary and even a non-member friend came to support Ashton. 
The primary president gave a really nice talk about baptism. Instead of going to the pulpit, she stood in front of Ashton and spoke right to him. She brought some gummy bears and called them "baptism bears". She spoke about the different things that we "bear" when we get baptized. It was really good.

Weston gave a talk on the Holy Ghost. He brought a birthday gift bag full of things to help Ashton remember that the Holy Ghost is a gift, and reminders of what the Holy Ghost does. The gift bag contained a heart to let him know that the Holy Ghost doesn't always speak to us, but sometimes leaves us with a feeling in our heart. Next was a Book of Mormon to represent the Holy Ghost only speaking the truth. Next was a mouth to remind him that the Holy Ghost speaks in a still small voice. Next was a candle to represent the Holy Ghost lighting a righteous path. Next was a book to show that the Holy Ghost was a teacher. Next was an ear to remind him that the Holy Ghost will always listen. And last there was a blanket to represent the Holy Ghost was there to comfort him. 
It was a cute talk and Weston did a great job!
Tommy did a nice job baptizing and confirming Ashton. 
We then had some dessert at the church and hurried home to have lunch with some friends. 
It was a special day!

It sounds like this was a really good day! I love Weston's talking points! Something we can all understand and especially for Ashton to relate too.
Beautiful photos! Ashton you are so handsome!
