HDC Victorville | Christmas Baptisms

Laura Umphlett

I grew up always going to church every Sunday so I always had that foundation. When I was about 8 or 9 I remember going to church with my dad and my brother. My Sunday school class let out, and all the kids had to find their parents and sit with them for the rest of the service. That's where I first asked Jesus into my heart. I am now a mother of a 2-year-old, and I am 4 months pregnant. I always knew that one day I wanted to get baptized, but I never felt the time was right. After becoming a mother, I realized that i need to show my kids that it's important to have a good relationship with the Lord, and I feel like this is the time to get baptized. I've been praying about it, and I believe I am now ready.
