Opening Song: When I am Baptized

I love camping.  You know what my favorite part of camping is?  Being done camping and taking a shower.  But seriously... I love getting dirty with greasy hair and dirt under my fingernails.  Usually by the last day of the trip I catch myself daydreaming about my long awaited shower.  I think about the warm water and the yummy bottles of shampoo and conditioner waiting for me to come home.  Holy smokes, there's no better feeling in the world.

It's a similar feeling when we experience true repentance, when we are baptized, and when we receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.  

It seems only appropriate to roast s'mores during our lesson to really comprehend the subject, riiiiiiight?

This is a perfect opportunity for teaching our toddler what it means when we say we are sorry in our home.  It can help him better understand that we don't turn around and make the same bad choice again right away.  When we have a true change in our hearts, then is when we are truly sorry.

If something as permanent as a mountain can be flattened, then surely the Lord can help us straighten our own crooked paths (see Luke 3:4-5).

This boy LoOoOoOoVes play dough.  Here's a great opportunity to practice one's mountain flattening skills.  Which is a really important talent I guess?
