My parents were able to come with me along with my grandparents and aunt and uncle who were all visiting for my brother's high school graduation. What an amazing blessing it was to be surrounded by my family in the celestial room and to feel such a great amount of love and the spirit of the Lord.
I was also able to attend the temple when my good friend Krystal went through for her own endowment. Two other girls from my home ward were able to come along with her friends and family. That day I was able to go through the temple for one of three sisters whose work was being done in the same session.
It is amazing the connection you can feel with people you have never even met when you are serving them and are able to be in the celestial room, which is quite literally "heaven on earth."
"The temple endowment was given by revelation. Thus, it is best understood by revelation, prayerfully sought with a sincere heart."
--Russell M. Nelson
"A temple is a place in which those whom He has chosen are endowed with power from on high-- a power which enables us to use our gifts and capabilities... to bring to pass our Heavenly Father's purposes in our own lives and the lives of those we love."
