Being able to go through the Bountiful temple yesterday was the most beautiful, sacred, wonderful day of my entire life.  The temple is such a marvelous place.  Walking into the Celestial Room, seeing my family and friends there, was the BEST feeling I've ever had in the world.  I have never felt so beautiful.  I feel so humbled that the Lord would see me worthy to enter His holy house.

"Come to the temple.  If not now, come soon. Pray fervently, set your lives in order, save whatever you can in hopes that that day may come. Start now that sometimes very difficult and discouraging journey of repentance. The temple transforms the individual and makes abundantly worthwhile any efforts made to get there. Keep your faith and your hope and determine that you will come -- that you will be worthy and that you will come to the temple."

-- President Boyd K. Packer, The Holy Temple

this absolutely gave me chills.
I went through the same temple for the first time in March, a few days before we got married.

Isn't it the best feeling in the world? SO happy for you!!
