This is a baptism gift for a boy in my Primary class (children's Sunday school). I teach the eight- and nine-year-olds. This particular group is so sweet - and hilariously entertaining. In a good way. :)
The CTR shield is a symbol children of the LDS faith are well familiar with. It stands for "Choose the Right." I'm not going to get all sentimental and preachy here - I'll post more than enough of that when my own boys are baptized, I'm sure! But I do want to let C. know that I'm proud of him for all the good decisions he's made and I wish him and his family the best for a beautiful baptismal service.
Many thanks to Rachel Berry's friend Hilary for the CTR towel idea. A tutorial and the text of the attached poem are available on Rachel's blog.
