A to Z of Thankful Me: B

A to Z Challenge, Day 2:  B

B is for Baptism, which happens at eight
(or even older, it’s never too late!)



It’s also for Books, and Bargains, and Blogging,

This was a bargain book, purchased for Grandpa (John).  He loved reading Bronc Burnett books as a kid.
And Birthdays, complete with candles for blowing!

    1. Thank you. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not baptize children before they are 8 years old, which is why I used that age in my post.

  2. Yes, it is never too late to be baptized: I was baptized when I was 21.

  4. made me think of the Tom Swift books that I used to own.... (my mother was very much a 'enjoy the library' person, and I discovered at a very early age that sometimes a library would sell old and worn books... what an incredible idea (for my 10 year old self)... to have my own books.
    nice

  6. Beautifully said and enlightning. Didn't know baptizing is done when you're eight or could be done at any age. In our church (I'm Dutch reformed) we get baptized in our first year, prefably around 3 or 4 months old.... Thanks for the insight.
    For me the B stands for Books, Books, Books and more Books!!!

    1. It is interesting how different churches view baptism, isn't it? Eight is considered the age of accountability, when children are old enough to understand the commitment they are making and can be responsible for their actions.
      Books are wonderful!
