Book Description:

This easy-to-read book clearly explains the meaning of the temple ordinances in your life. While still respecting the temple's sacred nature, this book helps you unravel some of the mystery and more fully appreciate the beautiful purposes for these ordinances. Packed with insights, Understanding Your Endowment will enrich your temple worship by increasing your comprehension of the temple's teachings.

My Thoughts:

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.

About the Author:

Cory B. 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 master's 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 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 marriage, though Cory still hasn't gotten used to getting up at four a.m. for their shift.

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

I received a free copy of this book for review but all opinions and rating are my own.
