Karis made a big decision

When Karlie decided to follow Jesus last December, Karis told us that she just wasn't ready yet.  We could tell she was really thinking about it and were eager to watch how God touched her heart.  Over the next few months, I could tell that her interest was growing.  She would read her Bible to herself often, even daily taking it with her to the bathroom (her favorite place to read in peace and quiet in this boisterous house!)  On Tuesday, April 22, Karis and Karlie kind of disappeared while I was making dinner.  Mark got home, the normal excited chaos ensued of everyone talking to Daddy at once, and in the midst of it Karis shyly told us that she had decided to follow Jesus.  Apparently she told Karlie and they had gone to their room to read the different names of God that Karlie had on a paper there.  She had not yet prayed, however, and waited until the next day during potty time to tell Jesus that she had sinned and needed His forgiveness.  She will be baptized soon.  We are very excited to see how God is touching her heart and look forward to see what He has in store for our precious girl!   Here is the video we took of her telling us after she prayed:
