i love to see the temple


i’m going there someday. to feel the Holy Spirit, to listen and to pray. for the temple is the house of God, a place of love and beauty. i’ll prepare myself while i’m young; this is my sacred duty. 
i’ll go inside someday. i’ll covenant with my Father; i’ll promise to obey. for the temple is a holy place where we are sealed together. as a child of God, I’ve learned this truth; a family is forever.

i had the most amazing and beautiful opportunity last saturday.
march 15, 2014 was probably one of the most special days of my life. i can’t quite explain how i felt.
it was bliss, it was a burning in my bosom, it was immensely uplifting.

before i was feeling a little anxious, but mostly excited. the moment i walked past the front dest, i almost burst into tears. the spirit was so strong, and it was actually happening! i didn’t think i would receive my endowments until i was about to get married. plans change though! and i couldn’t be happier or more excited. going in, i wasn’t really focused on receiving answers to specific questions. since it was my first time, i was just focusing on the feelings and the emotions. and boy, it was crazy! it wasn’t too overwhelming! just intense! and i don’t really know what words to use! it was so powerful!
i think i was more prepared that i thought i was; i know that this is where i belong. i know that what i am doing is right. i know this is what i need to be doing! i know that the things i will be teaching and learning are true. there is nothing else i would rather be doing!
i made covenants with my Heavenly Father and i will do everything to keep them!
it is home, my heart and spirit feel so at peace there. it is the House of the Lord and i know that. i can feel it anytime i just look at it.
i am so blessed with the amazing support system i have! they are so amazing and so understanding and loving! i don’t know what i would do without them, it’s kinda crazy <3

i have truly never felt more pure and clean in my life! i literally felt like i was glowing! my mind and body was incredibly tired afterwards though. it was such a crazy, amazing, and joyous day!
it’s one to be cherished 🙂

just some before and afters 😉

 i wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to be my escort, thank you for all you do/have done fore me <3






the only thing that could’ve made it better would’ve been my own parents being there. but that’s okay, maybe one day we can go together :)


xoxo,
