Eloise's primary talk about baptism

I’ve been learning more about Jesus by memorizing “The Living Christ.” It says, “Though sinless, He was baptized to fulfill all righteousness. He went about doing good.”  I like the story of Jesus’s baptism.  It’s my second favorite story of Jesus.  My favorite one is about Him being born because I like Christmas.  
Jesus showed us that being baptized is choosing the right.  
When I am baptized, Heavenly Father will be happy.  Matthew 3:17 says “And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
In the Bible Dictionary, it says baptism is from a Greek word meaning to “dip” or “immerse.” Jesus got baptized in a river called the River Jordan.  He was baptized by John the Baptist.  
I really liked Dorothy’s baptism, and all of the other baptisms I’ve gone to.  I like baptisms because it gives me a happy feeling when I go to baptisms.  I like choosing the right every day.  After we get baptized, we get the gift of the Holy Ghost.  

I know that Jesus got baptized to show an example.  I’m happy that I will get baptized in two years. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
