A Story for Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Wendy and her mom, Alex, discuss her recent baptism and gospel conversation.


I am ready!

Okay, great. Wendy, hi!

Hi, Mama.

How old are you?

I am seven years old.

Seven years old?


Can you tell me about when you got baptized?

I got baptized to tell all the church that I became a Christian.

Tell me a little bit more about that.

I knew what to do, and then it just felt like God telling me to become a Christian.

Was it a little decision or a big decision for your life?

Big decision.

How big?

This big!

That big?

This big! As-big-as-this-room decision.

How has your life maybe changed since you were a Christian?

Now, I’m knowing and following God even better.

What grade are you in?

I’m in first grade.

Oh, I should know that, right?

I’m going to be in second grade in the fall.

You are?


Can you tell me a little bit about your friend Cash?

Cash is one of my friends at school. And one time, I just told him how to become a Christian and then what Jesus did for us. And then I gave him a Bible, and I’m still asking him everyday if he has questions.

Is it our job to make followers? Or what’s our job?

Our job is just to spread the news. God will handle all the rest.

That’s true. He will handle all the rest. And thank goodness, right?


Does it make you nervous to share?

A little nervous because sometimes I’m worried people won’t believe me.

Oh, that is something that’s scary. I think I get nervous sometimes, even as a grown up, that people won’t believe me when I tell them about Jesus.


Yeah. Why do you share the good news of Jesus with your friends?

Because I feel like God is calling me to do that.

What does that mean?

I feel like He’s telling me to make more people so more people can go to heaven and live with Him.

I’m really proud of how you choose to follow God, even when it’s hard. And that you know you won’t always be perfect. But you still seek Him.

Thanks, Mommy. Smiling all that time made my lips hurt.

Well, no one told you you had to smile the whole time.

I just felt like it.
