This year the Primary presidency switched up their responsibilities and now I am in charge of Baptisms....YIKES! Talk about a ton of pressure! This is one of the most important days a child will have and I am in charge of planning it?! What if I mis-spell their names, what if I print up the program wrong, what if....the list could go on and on. As part of the job I go and visit with each child the week or so before they get baptized and just talk to them about what they need to know about that day. I also am planning the baptism preview, which is next Sunday. I had my first baptism on Saturday and lucky for me, one of the boys being baptized was my good friend Angie's son...so I knew that if I screwed up she would forgive me!
Well not only did the baptism go pretty smooth, it was such a wonderful spiritual experience for me. What an awesome blessing I have to be able to be a part of such a wonderful thing! I can tell that I am going to love this new responsibility. It really helps me to connect with the children on a personal level...which is what I think I have been missing out on.
I am still a little stressed about the Baptism Preview that is coming up, but at least I got all the invitations made and most of them handed out last night. PHEW! I also took pictures of each of the kids that will be getting baptized (there are 19 of them!), I am not sure how I am going to use them, but somehow I want to incorporate that into the program. *shrug* sometimes I feel like the blind leading the blind! LOL
