full of meaning and truth...

She chose to be baptized like Jesus was baptized...

dressed in pure, clean white to remind her of the promise she was about to make

she loves the symbol of God's promise after the earth was 'baptized'

she spent the year getting up every morning at 6am
by herself
to follow along with The Book of Mormon on CD
highlighting everything she learned about Jesus
She finished it.
she was ready for this day and it was so peaceful.
  the best part of this experience has been to feel
that this girl, is not just our girl, she is her Heavenly Father's girl.
and He knows and Loves her.
Even though they live States apart,
these "twin cousins" find ways to share their special days together.
while taking these pics, my girl says to her cousin:
"I promise to come when you get married in the Temple,
if you promise to come when I do."
