"My son, peace be unto thy soul; thine adversity and thine afflictions shall be but a small moment; And then, if thou endure it well, God shall exalt thee on high; thou shalt triumph over all thy foes." D&C 121:7-8

The House of the Lord

How blessed and grateful we feel to have a handsome young man who has prepared himself to enter The House of The Lord and to dedicate his life for the next two years to preach His gospel. It seems like yesterday that Brendan and I got married and I went through the temple for the first time. How is it possible that our son is old enough to go for himself?

Jordan picked the JORDAN River Temple in West JORDAN for a big reason. In addition, when he was born at Alta View hospital in Sandy, I remember looking out my hospital window and having a perfect view of this beautiful temple. So fitting that he would choose to go through this temple for his first time.

It was a day that we will never forget. It was so neat to hear everyone call him Elder Smith as we were guided through. It was such a sight to behold to see my oldest son dressed all in white surrounded by so many of our family members. Being the oldest cousin, Jordan's aunts and uncles have been more like his cousins and have all been so instrumental in his growing up. Their examples, love, and support as well as that of his grandparents have all played such a key part in his life.

After the temple Jordan decided that he wanted to go to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Everyone had to get home to babysitters so it was just his Grandma and Grandpa Sanches that were able to join us for dinner, but we had a great time.

Jordan found a special name written on the restaurant brick wall....
