“How I Am Preparing to Go to the Temple,” Friend, Mar. 2005, 43
Aloha. This morning I woke up and brushed my teeth, put my church clothes on, and came to church with my family. That is how I am preparing to go to the temple. On Monday night my family had family home evening, and I read a scripture. That is how I am preparing to go to the temple. Every morning before we go to school, my family has scripture study and morning prayer. That is how I am preparing to go to the temple. When my friends swear, lie, cheat, and steal, I don’t. That is how I am preparing to go to the temple. Every time we do what is right, every time we give service to another, every time we are kind to our brothers and sisters, every time we keep our word, we are preparing to go to the temple. Obedience is the number one key in preparing for the temple. I want to go to the temple one day, and I am trying my best to do all of the things that I mentioned. In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
