Product Description

“Being baptized and confirmed will be a most happy experience. . . . It is a mark of personal progress. It is like being born again and given a new life. You will be washed clean. . . . Your soul, or your spirit, will seem full of light, filled with warmth, hope, and love. You will be given a blessing that is just for you, and you will know that. It will be wonderful.”

Children, parents, and Primary teachers alike will find instruction, encouragement, and inspiration in this special book about baptism and confirmation. Here, author Elaine Cannon explains in simple terms the steps necessary to enter the waters of baptism and thus take the first step back to Heavenly Father. Baptism, she explains is each child's lifeline to heaven. And the gift of the Holy Ghost is a present unlike any other, a present which keeps that lifeline working and helps each child to receive comfort, answers, and joy throughout life's journey.

Included in this book are checklists, scriptures about baptism, the Articles of Faith, a special glossary of important terms, and places to insert photographs and write in details about the baptism and confirmation. Most important, however, is the clear message of the book: “Baptism and confirmation are two of the most important things that will ever happen to you. They are your lifelines to heaven.”

was given this book as an eight year old, and it helped me understand the covenant i was making, have found it to be wonderful for reminding myself of those promises and i am now looking forward to sharing this book with my son as he approaches the age of eight and being baptized, to help him understand those same covenants

Wonderful Book!

My seven-year-old son was unsure if he was ready for baptism. We reviewed many books and had countless Family Home Evening lessons--nothing seem to answer his questions. My husband came home with this book and it became the perfect study guide for us to read together each night before he went to bed. The wording is for children and the examples given are clear and made perfect sense to my young son. It was after we finished this book that he made his decision to be baptized. It should be required reading, in my opinion!
