Thanks for sharing this special event in your family's life. May the peace of Christ dwell in your hearts now and forevermore.

What a special time in your daughter's life. Heather and I were confirmed just a couple of years ago as adults and found it to be powerful and moving.

I wrote about this special time on my blog. I just went back and read that post. It reminded me of those words the bishop prayed over each of us: "Defend, O Lord, your servant _____with your heavenly grace, that he may continue yours for ever, and daily increase in your Holy Spirit more and more, until he comes to your evelasting kingdom. Amen."

Thanks for helping me remember. Peace.

Thank you very much, Rachel.
I was also confirmed as an adult, and found it to be a profoundly moving experience, that I remember some 27 years later.
Both of my two older children are now confirmed when they were 17/18. I think that is a better time, than when they are 12/13. It is a more powerful and meaningful rite.

My oldest son talks about it once in a while, as a commitment that is important to him! I am blessed and happy that he attends Church (no nagging from me!) while he is away at University.

Blessings to your whole family as you join your daughter in this ancient and beautiful sacrament.

I was confirmed as an adult and have found it was far more powerful than I ever expected.
