Laura’s Confirmation


As noted in my Carnival post, we were getting ready for a little celebration in the Snyder household with daughter Laura’s confirmation. I try to assign appropriate Scriptures to the confirmands based upon their personalities, the meanings of their names, and their personal strengths and weaknesses. To remind my baby both of God’s goodness to her and in light of the musical abilities He’s given her, I chose Isaiah 12:2 as her confirmation verse: “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. (ESV)”

Here’s a picture of Laura with her proud papa:

Here’s the young lady surrounded by her godparents and me — Dennis and Sue Klussman are family friends; Carrie (Krenning) Kober and Dan Krenning are my first cousins:

Finally, here is a copy of her confirmation certificate before we signed it:
