Preparing for Baptism

Do you have a child that is approaching the age of Baptism?  Our little Braden will be turning 8 years old this upcoming July.  As we prepare for this special day in his life we are doing everything that we can to hold special Family Home Evenings in his honor.  Honoring the special covenants that he will be making with our Heavenly Father this summer.  Each week we are focusing our FHE on lessons that will help to guide him to the waters of baptism.  This week we are going to have a lesson on what he can do to prepare.  This is a little check-off sheet that we'll be using as part of this lesson.  The ideas for this check-off sheet came from two wonderful LDS resources.

LDS Resources
Lesson Twenty-nine:  Preparing for Baptism from the Family Home Evening Resource Book, 1997, page 120.

Resources Help Parents Prepare Children for Baptism by Rosemary M. Wixom and the Primary General Presidency.

I hope that we can do whatever it takes to prepare as many as possible to walk into the waters of baptism and enjoy the blessings that come from following in the footsteps of our Savior.
