Ryan and I went to the temple (our Las Vegas Temple) this past Tuesday. It had been so long since we had last been because it is so hard to leave a nursing baby! Now that Ezra is able to go a little longer without eating we knew it was time to go.
For those of you who don't know I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The word saints does NOT mean that we think we are such wonderful people that we are saints. The word saints means followers of Christ. That is what we are trying to do is follow Christ and teach his word. Some refer to us as LDS (Latter Day Saint) or Mormons..... These are nick names. There are 128 LDS temples all over the world. Members of the church go there to learn and find peace from the CRAZY world. Some people ask Why is your temple such a secret? The truth is they are not a big secret they are just very sacred to us, so we don't talk about much of what we do at the temple. There are many questions that CAN be answered! Visit www.mormon.org or just ask me! Also on the website you can learn more about your family history.
It was so wonderful to be back in the temple! There is a feeling of peace that I find no where else in the world!!!!
I posted the temple from Ryan's mission because I wanted to share a story. There was a family Ryan taught on his mission that Ryan grew especially close to. Husband, wife and a CUTE little sweet girl. They now have twin girls and a son. They LOVE Ryan so much that they named their first born son RYAN! His middle name is after the other missionary who taught with Ryan. This little Ryan is adorable by the way! But this is not the point I am trying to make......... The Husband just became the branch President in their area! This is a really big deal! Ryan is so excited for the family!!! This family would truly be in a very different place without the church in their lives. I to would be very different without the church in my life!
I am very Thankful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saint!!!!
