the waters of baptisam by full submersion?

What type of person uses a child to start this tired conversation again?
I think you are too young to be asking total strangers. Talk to your parents or your pastor face to face.
I don't think you're too young if you understand what it is you're doing. A lot of young people get baptized because, well, that's what people do when they're Christian, right? But any church worth being the salt (and most churches take this pretty seriously) have a class of some kind about what baptism is and what it represents. There's a reason why people in other countries sometimes get killed for being baptized. But if you've studied it and can comfortably give an answer about how you're being baptized into Jesus' death and what this means to you, then go for it.
However, this should only be part of the conversation. You should also talk to your parents and pastor, I fully agree.

So you used to be a Christian?Many people claiming atheism, deism, etc. claim they used to be Christians. I could walk down the street and call myself the mayor, but I'm not. On what basis were you a Christian to begin with?

My mother's currently on the road for work, and I gave her a call this morning to check on her. She starts the conversation out by reminding me of the Christian that I used to be, and this whole conversation becomes about me getting to Heaven... I love my mother dearly, but she seems to be...
