Show and Tell
When I was sealed to my family, it was a big day because my family had been preparing for a long time. When I walked into the sealing room, I was dressed in white and carrying my baby brother. I immediately felt the Spirit and realized how sacred this event was. I know that we can be together forever.

This year for general conference my mom took us to the temple between sessions. I quickly went up to the temple and looked in the window by the door. I was surprised to see myself inside. “I can see myself in the temple!” I told my mom. The temple is a very beautiful place. I feel the Holy Ghost there. I like seeing myself inside the temple.

I was five when I went to the temple to be sealed to my parents. How beautiful the temple is!

I went to the Calgary Temple open house. It was a very cold day, but I was excited. I thought I would see Jesus inside, but even though I didn’t, I know He was nearby. All temples are Heavenly Father and Jesus’s special houses. I love to see the temples, and I want to go inside again someday!

Our family builds temples out of blocks as a Sabbath-day activity. Building the temples of the world has become a strength for our family and helps us “stand in holy places.” This is a model of the Draper Utah Temple in front of the real temple!
