I know that there is power and peace in the covenants we make with God, and to see so many who deal with immense and sensitve experiences come together in and around the holiest place on earth is truly a joy.
I don't know about you, but I truly need this power in order to live in this "worldly world" and try to become a celestial being.
Being in the temple together and serving as brothers and sisters of the North Star community was a special experience. I look forward to doing it again soon!
Going to the temple is a constant reminder to me of what my ultimate goal is, which is to return to live with my Heavenly Father. Nothing is worth jeopardizing achieving that goal.
It's been 3 1/2 years since I've been disfellowshipped, but even the thought of being in the waiting room of the temple gives me such a feeling of peace.
We invite each of you to strengthen your relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ by participating in a North Star community fast and temple weekend.
