This past December we made plans to visit the Raleigh Temple grounds as a family. It was Camden's first time visiting a temple and we were excited to tell him more about this beautiful and sacred place.
As soon as we pulled up he exclaimed, "Oh my goodness, big temple!" Haha. His little face was priceless. He lit up with excitement and loved being there. He kept saying, "I wanna go to church!" His favorite thing was the angel Moroni on top. As we left he said, "Bye temple. Bye Oni!"
We saw a few brides and grooms there that Saturday. We told Camden that Mommy and Daddy were married in a Temple close to Meema and Bapa's house. Now whenever he sees a picture of the San Diego Temple he says, "Mommy, Daddy married!" Also, the other day he picked a flower and held it in front of him and said, "I married!" Ha! Guess he noticed all the wedding parties with their flowers?!
What a fun experience introducing Camden to such a special place. There is a wonderful spirit about just being on temple grounds.
Inside our temples we are taught, we make covenants, and we are promised blessings. We believe that temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred promises & our families can be sealed together for all time and eternity.
