I’m Going There Someday

I love to see the temple. I’m going there someday (Children’s Songbook, 95).

1. Kourtney’s parents told her that their family was going to a temple open house. She was so excited. She liked to sing “I Love to See the Temple,” and she couldn’t wait for the chance to go inside someday.

2. When the day for the open house arrived, Kourtney and her sisters combed their hair neatly and put on Sunday dresses.

3. As they drove, Kourtney and her family talked about how families are sealed together forever in temples. When the temple came into view, Kourtney couldn’t wait to go inside.

4. When Kourtney walked into the temple, she felt a warm, peaceful feeling.

5. Kourtney walked reverently by the temple baptismal font, the sealing rooms, and other beautiful rooms of the temple.

6. Finally, she walked into the celestial room. Everything was clean and beautiful. She felt calm.

7. When Kourtney and her family finished walking through the temple, she felt so happy. She loved the temple more than ever.

8. As her family began to drive away from the temple, Kourtney turned around and pointed. “Look, Daddy! I went there someday!”
