This is the abbreviated version of what happened at Isaac’s baptism:

Songs, prayers, talks, Isaac gets “dunked by Dad” as Micah put it, confirmed a member, given the gift of the holy ghost… All the normal elements of a baptism. It just didn’t feel normal to us. It was all just too great to do justice in describing it. You just had to be there. Isaac probably will not remember as much as we will. I just hope he remembers the intense feeling of the Holy Spirit as it bore witness to many there that choosing to be baptized is the correct choice and that the Lord truly smiles down on his children who follow that commandment.

congrats Isaac! What a special experience -- reading this makes me all the more excited for Conner's big day in a few months. I'm glad things went well, and that you're able to remove one more thing from your very full plate. :)

I wish I could have been there!
