Women Dominate a Mormon Baptism, Except . . .

Recently I attended the baptism of a granddaughter.  It was memorable, not only because it was my granddaughter, but also because of maximum participation by women (and girls).  All three pre-baptism talks were given by women:  the Primary President, a cousin (a teenager), and my daughter (not the mother).  The youth chorus was dominated by girls (four are my granddaughter).  The closing player was given by a grandmother.

It’s too bad the witnesses to the baptism couldn’t have been women.  It’s too bad the meeting couldn’t have been conducted by the Primary President.  But hopefully, there will continue to be progress.
