I went through the temple for the first time in March, six months ago and it has been such a blessing to my life. I prepared hard before I went and I studied tons, but at the same time, I didn't know exactly where to start in my studies. If I had had this book then, I know I would have been able to comprehend things a little bit deeper. I'm grateful I have been able to read this book now to understand the ordinances in a broader light. There is so much symbolism to be found in the temple, and many of the ordinances found in the temple today are also found in the scriptures. I love how these scripture references are explained in this book and you will find so many of them. These scriptures are so well described by the author and it has increased my understanding to a whole new level. I also very much respect that every single thing in this book is described in a way that it doesn't take away from the sacredness of the temple and everything in the book is appropriate to talk about. My understanding has increased tons, and I love reading a little part then going to the temple to see it, learn it, and really feel it in my heart, and then I come back and read a little more. This book is perfect for all ages and it doesn't matter how much or how little experience with the temple you have, I think everyone will find something valuable to them in this book.
4 STARS This is book intended for LDS audience about Temples. With a lot of sources about the Temples from scriptures, ensigns , conference talks and other books. He treats the Temple ordinances with respect and sacredness. Gives a lot of information that I have not known or thought about with the history of covenants and Temples. Also teaches you that the real teacher is God to listen to him and learn about him. That he will answer are prayers and teaches us. That he will always keep his covenants and promises if we do. I know that I plan to go to temple and pay closer to so many things , with a prayer to understand more. I could read this book many times to really learn more each time. I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishing and in return agreed to give a honest review of Understanding Your Endowment and be part of its blog tour.
