A couple weeks ago, our little family went to the open house of the beautiful Brigham City Temple. It was incredible being there together. Adam and I want so much for our children to grow up knowing they are children of God, and that he and his son Jesus love them unconditionally. And temples around the world are absolutely places you'll feel Heavenly Father's love.
Throughout the tour Adam and I liked to point out the beautiful paintings and whisper to Brooks the different scripture stories that each one depicted...and especially pointing out the Savior. It's so cute, Brooks kind of says "Cheese-us" for Jesus. :) There were also murals of gorgeous nature, God's creations. Brooks loved pointing out the water in the lakes and streams and the different animals. And when we walked into the Celestial room the chandelier was beyond brilliant with the crystals gleaming every color of the rainbow. He loudly said, "Ooooh! OH!" about 5 times, which got a few laughs from the people around us as it was a "silent" tour. ;)
Being there with my family, I didn't want to leave! I soaked up the peaceful spirit and loved being reminded of the many ways the temple has blessed my life. I cherish my sweetheart Adam and our children Brooks and Ava so much, and I've so grateful that the promises we made in the Salt Lake Temple when we were married make it possible for us to be together forever.
