—> POSTSCRIPT <----
After doing all that work (below) I found THIS YouTube video of When I Am Baptized done beautifully in ASL. My work and research is still below, but the video is very nice (and would have been nice to find earlier…)
——————— ——————— ——————— ——————— *I put together some simple signs for this When I Am Baptized. One ASL class in High School is what I’m going off of, so… feedback from someone who does know ASL would be appreciated. Hopefully there are no inappropriate signs. ;) I’m kidding, there’s not.

*Also, here’s where I talk about the sign for Heavenly Father (at the bottom of the post).
