-Brooke's Endowment-

August 16, 2014
Because LDS temples are closed to all but worthy members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Mormons and our temples are often accused of being secretive. The truth, however, is that access is limited because the work we do inside the temple is holy. In LDS temples, members of the church learn eternal truths and make sacred covenants with the Lord. As Brooke will soon be leaving on her mission, she had the recent opportunity to enter the temple to make those covenants herself in an ordinance called the "endowment".

Brooke's endowment in the San Antonio, Texas temple was a special experience for the Terry family because we have never had so many family members in the temple together. Between the siblings, parents, in-laws, and cousins we had 12 members of the family present to support Brooke. On top of family, the endowment session was practically full of friends and neighbors all clamoring to congratulate Brooke! With a little less than a month remaining before Brooke enters the MTC, her endowment was one of those "monumental hurtles" that made her mission feel a little more real!
