We had a very exciting week at our house!
On Tuesday, Brandon and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary! We took the kids to Texas Roadhouse to celebrate. I am SO grateful that the kids and I met him. We are so grateful to have him in our lives. He is the most amazing husband and father. I am so grateful to have him as my best friend! I am grateful for the example he is to the kids and me. He is so much fun to be married to!
On Thursday, I received my endowments in the Logan Temple. I was very nervous before I went in the temple. Anything new to me (even things that are wonderful) make me a little nervous. I could not believe the warmth, love, and support that I felt the very second I walked in the temple. Wow! What an incredible feeling. My Grandma Gene was my escort. I could not believe all of the people that were there to support me. I have never felt so much love.
On Friday, Brandon and I were sealed! That was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I am SO grateful to know that we will be together forever, as long as we both honor our sacred covenants! We were our sealers first live sealing. I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I felt. It was so nice to be able to share this moment with so many of the people who have been there for us and helped us along this path. (We missed everyone who could not be there with us)
On Saturday, Ethan was baptized! I am so proud of him for making the choice to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so proud of the wonderful example Ethan is to our family. Ethan is always the one who reminds us to say our prayers and read scriptures as a family. He is such a kind hearted kid and makes everyone feel loved.
Brandon baptized and confirmed him. He received such a wonderful blessing. We had a luncheon at the church after. I want to thank everyone who came to the temple, the baptism, and helped bring food! (Especially the YW! They made the place look fabulous and we had enough food to feed an army!)
I am SO grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so grateful to know that I am a child of God and that I will be with my family forever. I am grateful to know that I have a Savior who loves me, watches out for me, and blesses me. I am grateful for the atonement and what it has meant in my life. I have made SO many horrible decisions, but they have lead me to where I am now... and for that I am grateful. I am SO happy that I can repent and be forgiven! I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I know that President Monson is our true Prophet today. I know that the scriptures are true! I am grateful for the Temple and the blessings it brings! I feel so blessed.
I hope and pray that my children will make good choices so one day they can be married in the temple for time and eternity! (I can't wait for the day when we get to take the kids through to be sealed to Brandon and me!)
I want to thank everyone who came to support us! We loved having each and every one of you there! You have all touched our lives in one way or another! I will post pictures as soon as we get some back!
