"I love to see the temple, I'm going there some day..."

So last week as I mentioned earlier, I was able to go to the Salt Lake City Temple and receive my endowments. It was a very interesting, unique, intriguing, and neat experience. It’s always been interesting about this side of the Church and how it’s not supposed to be talked about in detail, and if it is discussed it is very very broadly. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever seen and I’ve always loved the mysterious and perhaps I shouldn’t put it that way, because it is very special, but it was very intriguing to learn about the endowment. I was very overwhelmed and in awe. The next week I was able to go to the Provo Temple with my Mom, which is also a different experience and different from Salt Lake. I really enjoyed it and I hope to go often throughout my life. I absolutely love the temples and it’s because of the great love my parents taught me for the temples. When I went to the temple I thought a lot of when I was twelve and I went and did baptisms for the first time at the temple. It was pretty similar, I was able to go with my parents, the temple workers were so kind and so helpful, we celebrated after, and I was very overwhelmed and in awe. Over the years I was able to do a lot of baptisms and confirmations in a lot of temples and now I hope to do temple sessions in a lot of temples. It’s such a peaceful and happy place. It’s so neat, and I love to go. My mom and I are planning to go to as many Utah temples as we can before I leave on my mission and when I get back from my mission I want go through it in Spanish. I'm excited.
