Going to the temple for the first time... WOW! Such a cool experience! I took out my endowments and the Mount Timpanogos Temple and it was amazing! My mom got to be my escort and I was lucky enough to have most of my family attend. The whole experience was overwhelming, but I am grateful that I live close enough to several temples that I will be able to go often before leaving. There is also a new temple in Kyiv, hopefully I will be able to attend on my mission as well. I can't imagine what that would be like in a completely different language!
As most who have gone through the temple can tell you the first time is an experience that you will never forget, nor ever be able to repeat. It was all so amazing! The best part was being in the celestial room with my family. After everything, all the feelings of nervousness, the not knowing or trying to grasp it all at once it was the best feeling ever to walk into that room and have my family waiting for me! That truly is what it is all about, being able to return to our Heavenly Father, our older brother, Jesus Christ, and being with those we love forever!
|A nice "warm" day to be going to the temple!|

I am lucky enough to be stuck with these AWESOME people forever!
