I Like to Look for Rainbows

It’s raining outside. Over the years, I have learned to love the rain. I enjoy the moisture that it brings to the earth, the pitter-patter sound as the raindrops fall on my roof, and the lightning and thunder that often accompany the rain. (Cue the thunder…perfect…) I love running through it and feeling the water cleanse my body and send chills down my back.

One of the best parts about the rain is the rainbow that comes afterward. I love to look for the rainbows and remember the promise that God made to Noah that He would no longer flood the earth. The symbolism behind the rainbow and the flood is so beautiful, and I especially love that it represents baptism.

As a missionary in Iowa, I taught people all day every day about the importance and necessity of baptism by immersion. I shared with them the truth that the priesthood of God is on the earth again, and that each person can be cleansed from their sins by the power of the priesthood ordinance of baptism. We loved to sing the song “When I Am Baptized” from the Children’s Songbook at the baptisms of our converts. My heart rejoiced each time I saw one of God’s children accept the essential, saving, cleansing covenants through their baptism.

I like to look for rainbows whenever there is rain
And ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again.
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.
 
I know when I am baptized my wrongs are washed away,
And I can be forgiven and improve myself each day.
I want my life to be as clean as earth right after rain.
I want to be the best I can and live with God again.

I am teaching my daughter about baptism already. She recognizes photos of people being baptized, and loves to sing the Primary songs about baptism. I hope she chooses to follow God’s path and be baptized when she turns 8.

How have your baptismal covenants blessed your life?

Enjoy the rain. :)

Aquí está la canción en español:

Cuando me bautice

Me encanta el arco iris después de ver llover,
y pienso en lo limpia que la tierra ya se ve.
Tal como tierra limpia cuando acaba de llover,
yo quiero comportarme bien y con mi Dios volver.
Cuando yo me bautice se limpiará mi ser,
mi Padre me perdonará y el bien querré escoger.
Tal como tierra limpia cuando acaba de llover,
yo quiero comportarme bien y con mi Dios volver.

Testimony vs Conversion worksheet

There is a lesson on conversion in the New Testament manual for Seminary.

Object Lesson

Before recounting this story, hold up a marble and tell the group that it represents Abinadi. Ask the group how many people they think were converted through Abinadi’s efforts. Write their guesses on the blackboard. Then recount for them Abinadi’s short history as recorded in Mosiah 11-17. In summary, Abinadi, in fervent love and obedience to the Lord, boldly testified against wicked King Noah and his priests. Abinadi was ridiculed,…
