Evelyn’s Temple Testimony

Evelyn loved to come to Primary. She always raised her hand to say prayers. She also loved to help her teachers.

But today was Evelyn’s first time giving a talk. As she walked to the front of the room, her stomach felt wiggly. Then her heart started to beat fast. Thump-thump. Thump-thump. Thump-thump.

“Hi,” Evelyn said when she reached the front of the room. “My name is Evelyn. My family just went to the temple so we can be together forever.”

Evelyn told the Primary children about the white dress she wore. The temple was very white too. She told them that she and her parents and sister were sealed together forever.

“I know Heavenly Father loves us,” Evelyn said. “He lets us go to the temple to be with our families forever.”

Evelyn sat back down. She felt happy. It felt like a warm light was shining through her body. She was happy she went to the temple.
