San Clemente Stake Temple Day!

"Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,...and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths..." Isaiah 2:3

Oh how I love this beautiful House of the Lord! In preparation for next week's Stake Conference, the members of the San Clemente Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were invited to participate in Thursday's all-day Stake Temple Day at the Newport Beach Temple.

Our bishopric strongly encouraged the San Clemente 5th Ward members to clear their schedules and take the day off school or work to give as much of their time at the temple as possible. Because my roommates and I never back down on a challenge, we made it our mission to be at the temple from 9am to 9pm. And we did it!

It was such an awesome experience to be able to participate in all of the ordinances from sun up to sun down. I left that sacred edifice feeling stronger, happier and more excited about life than I have in a long time! I am so ready for our highly anticipated Stake Conference and look forward to more learning and growth as we have the blessed opportunity to hear from a chosen apostle of the Lord.
