Princess Castles

Over the weekend, my sister-in-law Lisa hosted a 
a bridal shower for my niece, Lindsay, who is getting married 
on Saturday in the Provo Latter-day Saint temple.
We are so excited for her!
Her decision to marry in the temple was something she and
  Keaton had been preparing for since they were small children.  
Mr. Nielson and I were also married in the Provo temple.
We are lucky enough to live close to this temple and are reminded daily of the
 beautiful memories and promises we've created there. 
When Lottie sees it, she fondly refers to it as 'my princess castle.' 
I tell Lottie that I hope she will get married in a temple someday, 
whether it's the Provo temple or any other temple around the world. 
As her mother, it's my responsibility to teach, prepare, 
and help her and all my other children strive for this goal.
Who and where they marry is the most important decision 
they will ever make.

Thank you, Lindsay, for your incredible example to 
your cute tweenager cousins.

And a BIG thank you to all of you who added your advice
and words of wisdom on Instagram for the happy couple!
