Baptized in Christ

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.

My little angel, may you always see your faith as the most valuable treasure you possess, “more precious than gold” as the Scriptures say, and may we always work to remain faithful and pure in His sight.

  1. You have captured the Beautiful Day so successfully. Love the picture of You and Amelie. The entire day was so peaceful and enjoyable. Thanks to you and Dean for the invitation of asking us to be Godparents. We pray that we will be faithful and mindful of this serious commitment and all its spiritual implications as we see Amelie’s Soul growing in the Love of God. Please always guide us with your vision and expectations for us. I will always pray, attend daily Mass, and include Amelie as well as Alizea, Genevieve and Soren to join us in Church to Praise and Love God. Also, I will be mindful to speak loudly and share my faith with them all. Love, Mom

  2. I feel so privileged and honored to be connected to Amelie in this very special way. Thank you for having the confidence in me to ask me to be involved in Amelie’s life and formati0n in this awesome manner. I hope I am worthy.
