Baadsgaard Family Man Camp 2016

Once a year all the men and boys in the Baadsgaard family
go to "Man Camp"
where they go camping, 4-wheeling, fishing and hiking. 
They know how to have fun. This is nature's teeter-totter.

John Baadsgaard's Missionary Experiences in Denmark

My son John Baadsgaard is serving a mission for
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Denmark.
While there he finds and teaches people
about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
He participates in baptisms.

He volunteers his time for service.
He participates in leadership councils 
where he is taught 
and teaches others leadership skills.
He meets with other missionaries 
as they learn from
and teach each other.
He teaches other missionaries 
how to better love each other 
and the people of Denmark.
He finds ways to teach in interesting hands-on ways.

He learns to forget himself
and find joy
in bringing others to Christ. 


Happy Birthday Eden

My Eden

By Grandma Baadsgaard

Happy second birthday Eden dear. I love you so.

In the beginning

They say we were cast out

Yet, I know

Eden is here

Where each chose choice

Forbidden Fruit

Bitter and Sweet

Tree of life

Fruit of love

Seeds of change

Dark and light

There is no loss

Of innocence

For Eden is right here
