This week I have been learning about Helen Keller. She lived in Tuscumbia, Alabama. At one and a half she became very sick and ill. She lost her hearing and vision. When Helen got older her parents knew they needed help so they hired a tutor. Her name was Anne. She was strict but she had alot of energy. It was amazing what Helen could do when she was deaf and could not see. She wrote books and helped with the braille system and inspired movies. One day Anne had a good idea she told Helen to put one of her hands under the water and in her other hand Anne spelled w-a-t-e-r. Then she said touch the ground and Anne spelled e-a-r-t-h in her other hand .That day Helen learnd 30 words. One night when Helen was asleep she died. It was 1968 and she was 87.

One night I went to see a new movie with my parents and my brother and sister. The name of the movie is Fireproof. It is one of my favorite movies now. Everyone needs to go see it. A boy and girl named Caleb and Catherine were about to get a divorce and then they got saved. My favorite parts of the movie were when Caleb pulled a little girl out of a fire and at the end when Catherine goes to the firestation in a very pretty red dress. There was a really funny part when a boy is acting moncho in the mirror and another guy was spying on him. I can't wait until this movie comes out on video so I can see it again, and again, and again.

On May 18 it was my paw paws birthday. And on his birthday something wonderful happened. Me and my brother got babtized. I was so happy because I always wanted to get babtized. Brother Jeff babtized me and my brother, Dallas.My nanny and paw paw were there and my grandaddy and grammy were there too. My uncle and aunt, Drew and Shelby, and my friends from church were there. It was at Shockosprings. There was a pool and a lake.We got to play for a while but then it was time to go get babtized so I had to go to the lake. I did not get to wear a gown because they did not have one small enough.Mr. Brad let me borrow his big white T-shirt. I was a little nervous but it was fun. I tripped in a hole walking in the mud. This was a very special day because getting babtized showed people that I love God. And it was also special because it was on my paw paw's birthday.

One night when I was 4 years old I was in my sisters room.She said that I should become a believer. So she led me to Jesus.And I said,"God I know I sin but will you come into my heart and save me?".Now I know who the real God is. I went down stairs and I told my mommy and daddy the good news and they were so happy for me.Now I want to spend my life following Jesus and telling people about Him.
