Temple Week

We had the wonderful privilege of attending the Bountiful Temple twice last week as two of our children received their endowments.  Garrett went through Wednesday, Sept. 5 and Hillary went through Saturday, Sept. 8.  It's almost a feeling I can't even describe-- having MY children in the temple with me.  It's what we hoped and prayed for the moment they were blessed as babies and my heart was so full as we visited in the Celestial room together.  It was almost surreal to be standing beside my adult 18 and 20 year old children.  THIS is what life is truly about--being sealed together as families and helping each other on the path back to our Heavenly Father.  This is the next step for each of them and they are truly moving on to good things.  I feel truly humbled and blessed as a mother.

I agree, there is nothing sweeter than attending the Temple with your children. I am so happy for all of you. I will be with you in spirit this weekend...I am so sorry to be missing Hillary's reception. Maybe I can talk Steve into a trip down south at the end of the month for the Las Vegas reception.

That is awesome! I am excited for you and your family as you enter new phases of life. Thank Heavens for family. I would be lost without mine!
