One of the greatest blessings to those of us living in the Los Angeles Temple District, but more than 2 hours away, is the Temple Patron Apartments. Colin and I wanted to set a goal of attending the temple once a month, but were having a difficult time getting down there, mostly because it’s hard to ask someone to watch your kids that long. Ingrid and Billy clued us in on the option of renting a room at these apartments, located directly behind the temple, where our whole family could stay for a super low rate. Could it get any easier than that? Plus, Warren loves the spacious cupboards he can hide in that an older building such as this provides.
That and the luggage dolly.
Silliness aside, I loved walking the temple grounds with our kids, sharing our testimonies about the importance of the temple and the ordinances performed there. I love that they get to see us make temple service a priority in our lives. Truly, it is the House of the Lord. I’m so grateful that we have a facility like this to help us attend more often.
