    We Love to See the Temple

    drawing of married couple at the temple

    While I drew this, I thought how if I follow the commandments, I will be able to enter the temple one day, just like my parents, and be sealed and have my own eternal family. I love my family and Heavenly Father.

    It was wonderful to go to the temple with my family. It’s a long trip from my city to the temple—almost 14 hours. We spent a week near the temple. I’m anxious to turn 12 to do baptisms for my ancestors. One of my favorite songs is “I Love to See the Temple.” I want to marry in the temple and have an eternal family. I know the temple is the house of the Lord.

    sisters and a drawing of the temple

    My younger sister and I like to go to the temple in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico, every time our ward is assigned to go. We spend time in the gardens, and we play with other children who come to the temple. I am preparing to enter the temple one day.
