Yesterday I was able to go do a session in the Mesa Temple (thanks for watching Kason mom!!). And it was one of the best sessions I have ever done. I really wanted to focus and try to get alot out of it because of everything we've been going through lately. I was particularly in search of some guidance in regards to our financial situation. I got in way before the session started which was really nice because I had lots of time to clear my head and say a prayer. As I get into the session I was suprised at how much I got out of it! I learned and noticed a lot of things that I had never even noticed before. We had a moment where we had to wait for about 10 minutes so I was able to think about everything and say another prayer for guidance.
I think I was expecting a huge revelation. I was expecting it to be some magnificent advice that would make everything clear. Well, as I got into the Celestial Room and I sat and thought for a minute. I realized, I don't need a huge revelation. I don't need someone to look me in the eye and tell me what we need to do. What I realized and what I learned from being in the temple yesterday was simply this ... FAITH. It's something that I've always known. If we put our faith in the Lord, everything will work out. I walked out of the temple with the strongest reassurance that if we can both put our trust in the Lord, that our family will be taken care of.
What's funny is in Activity Days this past week we talked about faith. And today at church one of the speakers, talked about faith. It really reiterated the importance of having and practicing faith. I am so grateful I was able to go to the temple yesterday. It was an amazing experience that I really needed. It's always so refreshing to spend a couple hours in the temple.

I am so grateful for temples, and my amazing eternal family. Where would we be without these wonderful blessings?!
