Bristol Palin missed her sister Willow's baby shower in Alaska over the weekend, and stayed in Texas instead to be baptized with her son, Tripp.
The 28-year-old mother of three went to Instagram – the day after her younger sister's shower – to share photos of herself and her son in the baptismal bath of Christian Life Austin, a non-denominational church in the near their home.
While Bristol affirmed her faith, Willow, 25, celebrated the upcoming arrival of her twin girls with the help of their mother, Sarah Palin, and their younger sister, Piper, 18, who helped plan her shower.

Priority: Bristol Palin (photo) missed her sister Willow's baby shower in Alaska to be baptized Sunday at Christian Life Austin, a non-denominational church in Texas

Bristol is incredibly close to her mother and brothers and sisters, and it is unclear why she didn't fly to Alaska to be with her family on Willow's big day. Her decision to participate in & # 39; Baptism Sunday & # 39; by Christian Life Austin may have received the highest priority.
& # 39; I can't even put into words how special it was to see this today. God is so good, & she captured a picture of a 10-year journey that is in the baptismal bath with two of the pastors of the church.
Both Bristol and Tripp wore the black & # 39; Raised to Life & # 39; Church t-shirts for their baptism, and the proud mother placed two photos of themselves in the water.
One snapshot, taken just before her baptism, leaves her in the pool with the pastors. Her hands are clenched and she looks like she's about to shed tears. In the second image she smiles as she is lifted out of the water.
& # 39; Huge tears today. I thought for a long time that I was not worthy enough to be baptized – and I now realize that I was completely wrong & she captured the images of herself.
Reaffirming her faith: in her Instagram post, Bristol admitted she thought she was unworthy of baptism and has since realized that she & # 39; completely wrong & # 39; used to be
All smiles: the 10-year-old son of Bristol, Tripp, was also baptized on Sunday. & # 39; I can't even put into words how special it was to see this today. God is so good, & wrote the proud mother
Bristol did not explain why she felt unworthy of baptism, but in 2008 she caused infamous scandal during her mother's vice-presidential campaign when she became illegally pregnant at the age of 18.
The former Teen Mom OG star gave birth to Tripp in December 2008, eight months after her mother, Sarah, welcomed her fifth child, Trig, who was born with Down syndrome.
Bristol's now three-year-old daughter, Sailor Grace, was also born out of wedlock, although she and her former husband Dakota Meyer were married when they welcomed their second child, Atlee Bay, who is now two.
Most denominations perform baptisms on infants and small children; Baptists and many non-denominational churches, however, wait until the individual is old enough to consciously accept the religion and its teachings.
When Bristol grew up, her mother attended the Pentecostal Church Wasilla Assembly of God. Pentecostal churches do not baptize children because they believe that individuals must show a clear understanding of the Christian faith in advance.
Always oppressive: on the day of her baptism, Bristol posted a video of herself promoting the isolated BrüMate cancer coolers in what appeared to be a sponsored post
In addition to being baptized on Sunday, Bristol also posted a video of herself promoting the insulated can coolers of BrüMate, although she did not make it clear that her video was a sponsored advertisement.
& # 39; I'm a hot mess today. You know I live in Texas where it's as hot as B-A-L-L-S. I'm just waiting for it to cool down, & she says in the clip that was filmed in her kitchen.
& # 39; Although it's still hot, a nice cold alcoholic beverage is a way to cool down. And BrüMate has made it possible to keep my drink ice-cold with their skinny tumbler. & # 39;
At the end of the video, she offers her 584,000 Instagram followers a code for 15 percent of the brand's products.
Bristol did not seem to recognize her sister's baby shower or why she could not be present on any of her messages.
Great day: Willow, 25, was accompanied by family and friends at her baby shower on Saturday. The expectant mother, who is pregnant with twin girls, was wearing a pink dress that embraced her baby bump
It may be close by: Piper, 18, was seen on Willow's belly in one photo and the guest of honor named her younger sister her & # 39; best friend forever & # 39;
Baby gifts: The room was filled with presents and in one photo Willow commented: & # 39; Our girls are so loved already! & # 39;
Both Willow and Piper shared photos of the family event, including photos of themselves posing together with their mother.
& # 39; Thank you @ piper.p and @ckckperry for giving the best baby shower! And thanks to everyone who has showered this baby & # 39; s with love! #twinpregnancy #twingirls, & # 39; the guest of honor has made a snapshot of her sister's.
The expectant mother glowed in an off-the-should pink dress that embraced her baby bump, which Piper rubbed with her hand.
& # 39; Best friend forever, & # 39; Willow wrote.
While the guest of honor looked nice in pink, Piper wore a bold cheetah print cardigan that creamed her ankles and Sarah had a camouflage jacket with a floral appliqué on the shoulder.
Happy day: Willow took turns posing with relatives and friends at the party
Memories: Although her older sister was not there, Willow called it & # 39; the most perfect shower & # 39; and plentifully thanked Piper for all her plans
Beautiful in pink: the theme of the shower seemed to be autumn with a pink twist, and the tables were decorated with festive pumpkins that were dyed cream, pink, copper and glitter gold
The room was decorated with pink curtains and tablecloths that matched Willow's dress, although the theme of the shower seemed to be autumn.
The tables were decorated with festive pumpkins in cream, pink, copper and glitter gold.

There were plenty of thoughtful gifts, including small hand-painted Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers.
Meanwhile, Willow's cousin, Kandice, took a shirt from their great-grandmother and made hats for the twins.
& # 39; This is such a great gift … I can't wait to see the girls in them and pass them on to their children, & # 39; the expectant mother gushed into her post.

Exciting time: Willow announced in May that she and her husband, Ricky Bailey, are expecting twin girls in December
Although her older sister was not there, Willow called it & # 39; the most perfect shower & # 39; and plentifully thanked Piper for all her plans.
Willow announced eight – eight months after she and her husband, Ricky Bailey, in May eight – announced that they are expecting twin girls in the winter of 2019.
She is only a few months away from her December due date and it looks like she couldn't be happier. Her shower took place just a day before she and her husband celebrated their one-year marriage.
Earlier this month, Willow & # 39; s father, Todd Palin, filed for divorce with her mother, Sarah, after 31 years of marriage.
Todd moved to dissolve his marriage in a document filed in Anchorage Superior Court on September 6.
The file called a & # 39; incompatibility of temperament between the parties so that they find it impossible to live together as a husband and wife & # 39 ;.
