I Love to See the Temple

I had the opportunity to go through the temple for the first time on Thursday night. I went through the St. George Temple. It was such a wonderful night! I feel so blessed that I have so many supportive people who were able to be there with me. I appreciate my family so much, and the example they have been to me as worthy members of the church. I was escorted by my Mom, and then my Dad, my brother Bryan, his wife Melissa, Grandma Morris, Grandpa Morris, Aunt Karen, Uncle Bruce were also there along with me.

Sheryl and Steve Lewis also came to share that night with me. I appreciate them both so much. I am so lucky to have such great friends.

At the end, I also realized that Corey and Tiffany had made the trip to be in St. George with me that night also. How lucky am I?

Here are just a couple of pictures from that night. We went to Olive Garden after the temple, and had a wonderful meal. I can't wait to go back to the temple, and I'm so grateful and glad that I have been taught all my life the importance of being worthy to enter the temple.

CONGRATS!!! That's wonderful!
Another cool coincidence: My first time was in the St. George temple on a Thursday night! Look at all we have in common! :D
Keep me posted on when you'll be speaking in church, maybe I can swing a trip to Cedar!

Hey Suzanne, that is so awesome that you went to the temple. That is such a wonderful experience. I went through the St. George Temple when I received my endowments and I loved the simple beauty and the Spirit that is in that temple. Are you leaving before November? If not, I want to say hi when we come through while I am home on leave. You Rock Suzanne!!! Congratulations again!!
