When they assured her that her daughter could have an additional ceremony outside of the temple, Heidrich looked to Reichhart.
“Well OK. You’re good to go,” Heidrich said.
Reichhart was baptized a week and a half later on Oct. 29, 2011.
Since her baptism, Reichhart’s friends tell her that she has a special glow about her. “If I hadn’t joined this church, I can’t even think about where I would be right now. I was going down a slippery slope to nowhere. It saved my life.”
Reichhart was accepted to Brigham Young University and is headed west this fall to continue her studies.
Since her baptism, many of her friends have seen “The Book of Mormon.”
But not Reichhart.
Though it was the springboard to her testimony, now it hurts her to know that people find humor in the mockery of her faith.
But Reichhart said that thanks to a reminder from the missionaries who knocked on her door, the same thing that happened to her could happen to anyone else. All they have to do is believe, she added.
