Brenna's 15th Birthday

Today was a special day. Today we celebrated Brenna's 15th birthday. And I can't think of a better gift than to do her temple work and that is exactly what we did. Racquel and I spent half the day in temple doing her work. We had friends from our ward (including our wonderful Bishop) and family present. We definitely felt Brenna's present and have no doubt that she was there.

"President Hinckley has told us that 'just as our Redeemer gave His life as a vicarious sacrifice for all men, and in so doing became our Savior, even so we, in a small measure, when we engage in proxy work in the temple, become as saviors to those on the other side who have no means of advancing unless something is done in their behalf by those on earth'
(Discourses of President Gordon B. Hinckley, Volume 2: 2000-2004 [2005], 265). 

"This is such meaningful service we give because our departed brothers and sisters literally become more connected to us."
(Richard H. Winkel, "The Temple Is About Families," Ensign, Nov. 2006, 11)
