May 5, 2012 I entered the temple to receive my endownments. I was so nervous to go through the temple. I stressed I was prepared enough, I wouldn't understand anything, and I was just nervous! I am not the best with change, and this was definitely a big change that I was making in my life. As I walked through the temple doors I was immediately filled with the spirit. I have never felt the spirit so strong. It was a huge testiment that Heavenly Father truly does LOVE me. I have never felt his love so strong and powerful then I did that day. Everyone told me to just remember how you felt instead of trying to take everything in. That is exactly what I did, and I had such an amazing experience. As I put my garments on I finally felt complete. It was like I had been missing something my whole life, and I had finally found it. I immediately felt protection and stregnth. I have been counseled to go back every week until my mission. My Stake President told me that it was the best way I could prepare for my mission because everytime you go your testimony grows stronger and stronger. I am so excited to continue to go! It truly is the house of the LORD, and another testiment that this is the true and living gospel!
