Parents reflect back on the day their child was baptized as an infant, remembering the people who were there, the words that were said, and the love that was shared on that day. Children who can't remember their baptism will learn about what happened on that special day, how excited their family was to share them, and how delighted their church community was to welcome them into the family of God. Above all, children will learn that the day they were baptized was all about love: the unconditional love of their parents, the welcome and caring of a faith community, and the unearned love and grace of God that pours down on them freely and generously.
A perfect gift for infant baptism or any occasion for remembering baptism, On the Day You Were Baptized is sure to be a treasured keepsake for children and families long after that special day.
