At the beginning of the year, I made a goal to visit the temple 100 times in one year. A few weeks later I realized that was an unrealistic goal, and cut it in half. Yup, 50 visits in 52 weeks.
I've done really well so far: today was my 35th visit. I have primarily gone to the Draper Temple as it is the closest one to me when I am at home, but it looks like I will likely be finishing up my goal at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple for the rest of this year. I've adapted the habit of going right after my microbiology class on Thursdays, and today I just felt inspired to go as well. I feel so scandalous because I'm always changing in my car in the temple parking lot, and I'm always nervous someone is going to walk by and notice me pulling on my skirt.
The effort to make the temple and performing baptisms for the dead a part of my life has been so very worth it. I feel so happy and calm after my temple visits, even if I know I have a thousand things that need to get done at home. This is likely one goal I will continue to do even after I make my 50 visits mark.
It was a gorgeous day at the Oquirrh Mt. Temple today.
