"If we are a temple-going people, we will be a better people, we will be better fathers and husbands, we will be better wives and mothers. I know your lives are busy. I know that you have much to do. But I make you a promise that if you will go to the house of the Lord, you will be blessed, life will be better for you" (President Gordan B. Hinckley, "Excerpts from Recent Addresses of President Gordan B. Hinckley," Ensign, July 1997, 73).

Thanks, also, for this quote. It had been a long time since I had been. Jon has gone without me, but it is hard with a 1 year old when I don't have any family close to watch her.

Anyway, last Tuesday we took the day off. We had lunch and went to the temple together while Tae was at daycare. I felt guilty leaving her and not being at work, but it was nice. We have decided that if we need to do this periodically so that we can get to the temple, then that is what we will do. Thank you for reminding me of just how important it is.

Thanks, Tamaran! That's a really good point about MAKING it a priority, even if we have to take time off work. You are a great example of faith!

Ha! Sorry. Please excuse the outburst.

I have so much improvement to make. I look at where I am spiritually right now, and am disappointed when I compare it to where I have been. I've been struggling to get the spiritual upliftment I need. I'm at that point where I am wondering if I'll ever feel the Spirit in a meeting again. I feel like I'm spending most of the time just keeping Taelyn quiet during sacrament meeting. To be fair, she actually did really well on Sunday and I loved the meeting. Being in primary for the next 2 blocks doesn't help, either. I've been trying to figure out how to get spiritually rejuvenated throughout the week. You're blog sure helps. I so appreciate it.

IT's funny you should mention that. With four little munchies, church wasn't fulfilling my spiritual needs either. It's hard to feel the spirit when you're pacing in the hallways while everyone else is in class. All I can say is, to find a half an hour each morning if at all possible, to study and pray all by yourself. Doing this since February has literally changed my life. This quote is sort of tender for me, because temple attendance has somehow become a weak spot in my spirituality. I do have a testimony of the temple, but it has become so hard to get there. I just about DIED when they announced they will be building one in Brigham City, where I live. I'm ecstatic, but now I will have NO EXCUSES! It probably sounds silly, but I keep thinking to myself: "Is Heavenly Father bringing a temple here just for me?" Anyway, I like your outbursts. Sometimes it helps soooo much to write down your feelings and frustrations. Think of it as a little electronic prayer! Hang in there! LYLAS!
