Baptism Sunday

My name is Rachel, and I was baptized in Lake Michigan today.

After calling myself a Christian for over two years, today was the day that I finally decided to show this publically to my friends, family, and church.

Today was a day of celebration, hope, and love.  What happened today is a true testament to the power of God's love and grace...and the transformation that His presence has had on my life.  Those who are close to me know my testimony of what brought me here today.  I'm so happy to say that my life has been forever changed.

Thank you to everyone who has played a part in getting me to where I'm at today.  I could have never gone on this journey alone.

I didn't take many pictures, but here's a brief slideshow of my baptism:
