Time for reflection and celebration

I can't believe it's been 20 years today that I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. What a wonderful and marvelous experience this has been. I was baptized along with my niece, Kiamitia on July 16th, 1989 by Nathan Sams. Now, twenty years later I look back at the moment that changed the course of my life and the blessings that my family and I have received from that one choice I made so long ago....

The words from this song say it best....


I've made my choice
You can mark this day
The day I pledge
To take His name

I will be strong
I will be brave
Standing for Him
As I take my place

I have felt the Spirit
Burn Truth in my heart
It's in my heart

I will stand
I will not fall
In a world that's weak
I will be strong

I'll be true
I will choose His way
I know what's right
And I will not change
In a world where so many will not
I will

I may be one
But one becomes two
When you stand with me
And I stand with you

As we unit
Our cause is great
We're not just the candle
We are the flame

I will Take the light He gives me
And I'll hold it up high
I'll hold it up high


From the cd..."Be Thou an Example"
