Taylor Saraceni: “How did you feel at your baptism?”

How did you feel at your baptism?

┬áThe Renaissance was a period in history in which culture was said to have been “re-born”. The glory of the Classical Era, the genius of the ancient Greeks and Romans, was re-discovered by the people of Europe. This is an important concept to keep in mind when talking about my personal feelings of my Baptism. Just as culture and logic was believed to have been re-born in that bygone era, I had a personal re-birth once I came forth from the baptismal water. That moment was a turning point in my young life, and I’d be lying if I was to say I wasn’t nervous the day of my baptism. With my baptism I made a covenant with our Heavenly Father that I would do everything humanly possibly to live the by the Commandments, and with much prayer I’ve been successful thus far and it has blessed my life more than I could possibly bare testimony of. I felt compelled to write this, I hope that whosoever reads this can find comfort in my testimony that being baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints is one of the best decisions you could make in your life, it will bring you comfort and never ending satisfaction and countless blessings, I’ve already seen these come to fruition in my life and I know you’ll feel and see the same things. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us moreso than we could understand and that baptism and repentance are the first steps in living a righteous life and triumphing over the evils of the world and returning to our Heavenly Father one day.
