Baby Blessing


We had a wonderful visit with our daughter and her family. We had the glorious opportunity to participate in our granddaughter's blessing. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we bless babies after they are born. The purpose of the blessing is to give them a name that will be known upon the records of the Church and throughout their lives. Additionally, the person giving the blessing--usually the father--gives the baby a blessing as the spirit dictates. Her blessing was wonderful! Heavenly Father definitely loves our new granddaughter.
