Walker will be 8 on Friday and soon to be baptized!!
I never thought I would have an 8 year old!! For years Walker would tell us that he "wasn't going to get baptized" and that he "didn't want too."I knew deep inside he would change his mind. And that he was just nervous. I believe in giving my children choices. They may not like their options for their choices, but they always have a choice! We were not going to force or make Walker get baptized,but to let him make that choice on his own. The past few months he's changed his mind, and is so very exited to get baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. Turns out, he was just scared that he was going to have to sing in front of a crowed and people would make fun of him. Who knew,right!
Walker is very tender hearted and has a really special spirit. ( I know you usually say people that are "ugly" have a "special spirit or a "sweet spirit".) I think I've always been that "sweet spirit!".... But he's still pretty cute with a "special sprit". Walker tends to feel the spirit really easy and loves Scripture stories! He has a lot of faith. I know what the savior meant when he said, "To have faith like unto a child." Walker KNOWS Heavenly Father hears our prayers and answers them. Its a simple thing for Walker to believe.He teaches me something new daily! Walker has a ton of Friends, and I think its because he sees them as all equals. He has such a wide variety of friends. I never know who's going to knocking on the door to play! I love this about him. He's kind to kids in his class that have a harder time making friends. I'm so excited to see him get baptized! I really thought for a while, we were possibly going to have a convert in our family!! Walker is really excited for his big day. I keep telling him to just enjoy that special day and don't forget the special feeling you will feel.Walker is a one of a kind! He's just a good kid and I'm so proud he choose me to be his mom!!! Were really looking forward to his baptism and all the great things in the future!!
