Genre: LDS non-fiction            


Receiving your endowment is a sacred experience. Sometimes in the excitement and focus of major life events like missions and marriage, the temple experience becomes secondary. However, your temple endowment can and should be a deeply meaningful experience.

Using entertaining stories and insightful teachings from the scriptures, this book helps teens and young adults replace their fears and questions about the temple with the faith and confidence necessary to make and keep eternal covenants and to experience all the blessings of temple worship.


My Review: 5 Stars

This is a book that I wish I would've had years ago. I love how each chapter is broken down in a way that makes the topics relatable, as well as easy to visual and understand. My mind was opened to a few new concepts that I hadn't considered before, and I have the desire to learn more for myself through personal experience.

Each chapter takes a topic at a time. There's a "homework" section at the end of each chapter that gives the reader some additional, personal ideas for study and contemplation to make this experience right for each person. I like that because I think this is something personal and by allowing for that reflection, it truly becomes such.

I believe that different things stand out to me at different times in my life, depending on my circumstances at the time, and there were some really profound ideas that jumped out at me. I really am eager to study this out some more and to see what happens.

This is a great resource for someone who is preparing to go to the temple for the first time, as well as for those who have already been. Like I said, even I learned a few things.

About the Author:

Cory Jensen
Cory B. Jensen was born and raised in Utah, growing up in the shadow of the Logan temple. He developed a love for the temple early in life and has been an avid student ever since. He graduated with honors from Brigham Young University with a Masters of Business Administration. A lifelong devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he served a mission in Rome, Italy and is looking forward to the completion of the LDS temple there.

He and his wife, Traci, are the parents of four children. Together they currently serve as ordinance workers in the Mount Timpanogos Temple. That service has greatly blessed their lives and their marriage, though Cory still hasn’t gotten used to getting up at 4 a.m. for their shift.

He hopes that the message of this book will bless your life, enrich your personal temple experience, and help you in your journey to understanding your endowment.
