Dee's mission preparations included many exciting and surreal experiences, including her going through the temple for her endowments on August 26th. As a parent, it's the greatest blessing to be able to be with your kids in the temple. It's like a little glimpse of heaven!
Hopefully later, Dee will be able to add her own words to her temple experiences before she left. So in the meantime here are some pictures and some recollections from those days.
|I was so blessed to be able to be Dee's escort through the temple.|
It was seriously one of the best days of my life!
|Some of the sweet girls from Dee's ward Young Women group.|
When we came out of the temple they were singing "I Love to See the Temple".
It was so incredibly touching! These ladies are true angels!
|Dee with her dear friend, Emma.|
These two have shared many experiences, tears and laughter!
|Dee with her Young Women president, Sister Price.|
She's known Dee since she was a little primary girl
and has always been a sweet friend and neighbor!
Later on Dee had several other opportunities to return to the Mesa, AZ Temple and to also attend the Gilbert, AZ Temple. In the Gilbert Temple, she had an experience that she will never forget! (More to come on that later...)
