For many members of the church, the temple endowment remains something of a mystery. Yet when understood, the temple can function in our lives as a modern day Liahona, giving us our bearings in our mortal journey back to our Father. “Understanding Your Endowment” is packed with insights and keys, which can help you unlock the temple’s purpose and meaning in your life. It will help you understand the blessings the Lord offers His children through His temples and will enrich your personal temple worship.

“Understanding Your Endowment” examines topics such as covenant ceremonies, the initiatory ordinances, the endowment, and temple sealings in a manner that is plain and easy to understand while still respecting their sacred and confidential nature. Whether you are preparing to enter the temple for the first time or already attend regularly, your temple worship will be enhanced by reading this book.


My Review

Understanding Your Endowment is a great resource for those who are preparing to attend the temple and those who have been attending for any period of time. Currently teaching a class for those preparing, I found that there were several things that I connected with and that gave me ideas in helping those in my class to come to a better understanding. I loved the way the author went about delving into each chapter with scripture references, quoting church leaders, and connecting ancient procedures to today's. The verbiage was simple, making it easy to read, as well as meaningful and inspired. It allowed me to envision things that I hadn't before and reach a deeper grasp of the temple, the meaning and understanding that can be found there, and the importance of God's relationship with each of us.  This is one book that I highly recommend for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

It’s the message that matters.
