Our family’s favorite gift of 2014 is the Gilbert Arizona Temple. The Gilbert Temple Cultural Celebration, temple dedication, and opportunities to visit the temple have greatly impacted our family in wonderful ways. We are grateful to share our beliefs and experiences as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in this short video I created. It is because of the life of our Savior that we have the precious gift of temples and the sealing power that binds families together for eternity.
Raising a family is hard and I feel like I make mistakes on a daily basis. I’m so grateful that our Savior made it possible for me to be forgiven and to ‘keep trying’ by atoning for my sins. The process of making this video was very representative of our family life in general. We had user errors with the equipment, tripping, falling and skinning knees, cranky kids, sore feet, potty breaks, bribes and threats, skittle rewards for smiling, and a whole lot of laughter in between. This video perfectly summarizes my hopes for me and my imperfect family 🙂
Here are a few photos we took in-between shooting video.
