one step closer



{my handsome brother Cory: soon to be Elder Eddy}

{my other handsome brother Spencer}

my heart is full: last thursday {october 29} paul & i headed to Albuquerque. down there we met up with my parents, two of my brothers, & my aunt & uncle for a special occasion. cory & i received our endowments. it was such an amazing experience. i am so grateful for the sacred House of the Lord & especially for the love of our Heavenly Father. my testimony has grown tremendously from this experience.

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 a house of God, A place of love and beauty. I’ll prepare myself while I am young; This is my sacred duty.

I love to see the temple. I’ll go inside someday. I’ll cov’nant 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: My family is forever.
{this primary song was stuck in my head for days}
now we are one step closer to getting sealed together as a forever family.
my forever family.
