Part 2: A wonderful weekend that changed my life forever!

     So after attending a few Sundays at our branch I was really considering joining the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints! I was still scared though and decided to do more lessons. Well we were just on the law of Chasity. Then Sister Pabst and Sister Melott said, " Katie we have been praying for you everyday every chance that we get. We want to ask if you will be baptized on August 24, 2013?" I started to cry.I said " I've never felt this much love from other people. I don't have family that live near by I'm not close to my aunts and uncles. I feel so close though to the people of our branch. Yes, I will be baptized."   They got very excited. " Well we better get to planning then." Sister Melott said. "What do you mean?" I asked. Sister Pabst said " You get to chose everything the songs people that you want to talk at your baptism."  "That's awesome at my baptist church I didn't get to" I said. "Well we want it to be your day, your life changing name on bringing on the name of Jesus Christ. " "Ok, I love it just tell me how to do it." They then wrote out everything I would need to decide and handed me a baptism calender.    It didn't take long at all to do the lessons with them again. My mom had no problem with me joining the church. My dad on the other hand did.
     My dad kept saying "make sure you know what your getting your self into." I knew what I was suppose to do and that was to be baptized. I knew that the Book of Mormon was true.
So, I kept reading the bible and changing my life more and more.I wrote in my journal.  I had to let go of friends that were going down a bad path. I had to let go of facebook for a while actually, I didn't want any thing negative to be thrown my way.   Nobody from my baptist church called and it was what's called a mega church around here. So that said a lot to me.   The bad part was is my dad still went to our baptist church. He did go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with me once. He told everybody " I have to tell those at my baptist church what a change this has made in my daughter's life all the way around."
     He did and it did not go well at our old baptist church. I still ended up being baptized in the church I felt the purest I have ever felt in my life. I felt clean, pure and amazing. I told my mom " I feel like a kid that's young and innocent." That confirmed everything for her as well.
     This ends Part 2 for now. I have so much more to blog about. I hope you are enjoying it. -Sister Katie Guyton
