One evening I got a text from my cousin and
stake president, Chris Bingham who asked if our family
would be interested in going to the
temple to serve with our kids in the baptistry.
I rubbed my eyes...did he just ask if we wanted to
GO TO THE TEMPLE! UMMM....YES!
This is a very big deal because it's been over a year since we've been
able to serve in the temple with our kids.
We dropped everything to go.
This was such a blessing to our family especially as we are facing
major changes and challenges. The temple promises peace and guidance.
Along with a few other families, our family was among the first to
attend the baptistry since it had been shut down last March.
Since Oliver is 16 he was able to baptize me, Christian, and Gigs for
about 20 of our own family ancestor names.
It was a very emotional, beautiful moment for me as his mother.
I was so proud of him. He is such a good boy who makes good choices,
honors, and cares deeply for the Priesthood power he holds.
In that holy space watching him serve,
I was given a tender vision and saw him a little older
as a missionary serving, loving, and teaching
others about the Savior of the world.
And even though he won't take one decent normal picture with me,
I still love him so much! He's the cutest!
