Dakota and I both believe that regular temple attendance is such an important thing and such a great blessing. Obviously, when life gets busy it gets harder to make time to attend the temple.
When we moved to Logan in January we made it a goal to go to the temple every other week (twice a month). Some weeks life happens and we can’t make it, but from January until about May we did a pretty good job making sure we planned our schedules around our temple visits. When summer came we got really busy traveling, going home to visit family, taking lots of classes, and working so we didn’t do a very good job attending the temple. So, when August came and the fall semester started we made it a goal to plan the temple into our weeks again. We have been doing good so far; it’s only been a little over a month, but hey, that’s better than nothing right? 😋
My testimony of the temple grew so much over the summer because we weren’t able to attend as much and I could feel the absence in my life. I know that the blessings of the temple are real and that you can feel so close to your Heavenly Father while in the temple. Another great part of two times a month temple attendance is that we turned the whole evening into a date night. We both love sushi, so what’s a better date night than going to the temple and getting sushi together? 🙂
