My Missionary Commission


I am Called of God. My authority is above that of the kings of the earth. By revelation I have been selected as a personal representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Master and he has chosen me to represent him. To stand in his place, to say and do what he himself would say and do if he personally were ministering to the very people to whom he has sent me. My voice is his voice, and my acts are his acts; my words are his words, and my doctrine is his doctrine. My commission is to do what he wants done. To say what he wants said. To be a living modern witness in word and deed of the divinity of his great and marvelous latter-day work.
-Elder Bruce R McConkie

Temple Recommend (12/26/2010)

So today was the big day. Dylan went to meet with the Stake President to have his temple recommend interview. I, as his mother was very excited. I couldn't tell if he was excited, but I guess boys are different than girls, and when I think back to my first recommend I can't remember anything about it. Well, the Stake President signed it and Dylan's temple date is January 8th, unless the temple says they are full that day. We are going to try to get into the 5:30 p.m. session. I as a LDS mother is very excited. We try so hard to teach our children that they need to prepare for temple, yet we know it is their choice. They must choose to go to the temple on their own, and then choose to live this lifestly as member of the church. It is a big commitment. It has made me take a step back and reflect on how I am teaching my children about this gospel, and am I teaching my children that living this gospel is a daily choice. We choose to get up everyday and continue to have faith in Jesus Christ and in our Heavenly Father, and to be a member of this church. It makes me happy that one of my children has chosen to take the next step, a step that will take him closer to receiving exaltation.
