  1. What a gift that we walk in newness of life. The dying and the resurrecting become so close to us and so precious when we realize that the very real and tangible death and new life of Jesus point toward the spiritual reality of the work He wants to do in us.
    Blessed Easter to you, Kimberly.

  2. Kimberly,
    Your son’s reply brought tears to my eyes too. Oh that such a young person can understand that they are a new creation in Him. It truly is a work of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes we make faith so complicated, but Jesus reminds us that in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven we must become like little children. We could all take a lesson on being forgiven and having a friend like Jesus from our kids. Out of the mouths of babes….
    Have a blessed Easter,
    Bev xx

    • Hi Bev, I’m preaching to my own heart here! It bears remembering when I overcomplicate it. Thanks so much for reading! Happy Easter!

  3. Such a beautiful piece to read as we wait expectantly between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. It caused me to take time to remember my own baptism. Thank you for that gift today.

    • Oh, Danita, how sweet to reminisce about your own journey to deeper faith! Thank you for saying so! Happy Easter to you and yours.

    • I want a childlike faith too, Kathy:) I wrote this as much for my adult self, as I did for readers! Happy Easter to you!

  4. What a precious story, reminding us of the glorious newness of life we have in Jesus. It’s so incredibly extraordinary and all-encompassing. And your son gets it! God bless you, Kimberly, as you continue to guide your children. You are taking them down the right road of faith and sensitivity to the Spirit!

  5. What a precious story about your son!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 Thanks for sharing that sweetness and simplicity!

  6. Kimberly,

    You & your children are blessed to have grown up in good Christian homes. My parents quit church for a number of years. I was simply a “young church goer” doing church but not having faith. Years later I finally got the message & was re baptized. Yesterday was Easter. We had an adult get baptized. It was thrilling to see one more soul saved. This world makes it easy to act Christian. There is spirituality, prosperity gospel, false teachers, etc. We need to teach everyone the truth about God & being baptized. We must become like little children to enter into the great Kingdom of Jesus.

    Blessings 🙂

  7. Beautiful! I was baptized in high school but I don’t think even then I fully understood it and am only now working on what it all means.
