Why I Chose To Be Married In The Temple - LDS


The most forward answer I can give is- I chose an eternal marriage, not a earthly one.  I chose to be with the love of my life FOREVER. If some of you don't know, "Eternal" means- lasting or existing forever; without end. For some people this may seem so "out there" or "unreal," yet I look at it and know without a doubt that it is REAL and it is OUT THERE, that's what makes it so amazing and exciting. Now, I know some of you may be thinking that I did it because that's just what Mormons do, or that I feared my parents if I didn't, etc. I am here to tell you that I full heartedley chose for myself, on what I know to be true and how I feel. There have been a significant amount of blessings received from the Lord for being married in the Temple to my sweetheart.

There are so many blessings that come from marriage in the Temple. Like these from LDS.org :
Confidence and Support. When you get married, you have someone who will cheer you on and encourage you in doing what is right, who will lift you up each day, who will share in all your joys and sorrows.
“The most important single thing that any Latter-day Saint ever does in this world is to marry the right person, in the right place, by the right authority.” —Elder Bruce R. McConkie (1915–85)
Children. It brings great joy to be trusted with the care and keeping of Heavenly Father’s children.

Sharing. It is such a great blessing to share in the life of another person and someday in the life of children as well. Your and your spouse’s successes become successes for the family. Making memories together adds deeper meaning to life.
Counsel. A spouse can give you good, honest advice, and you can trust it because you know it’s coming from someone who has only your best interests at heart.
Strength. Two are stronger than one. You can strengthen and help each other to live the gospel more completely.
Laughter. When you know someone this well and when you really trust each other, you’ll enjoy life with laughter and humor.

Love. Being told each day that you are loved is marvelously renewing and refreshing.
Service. There is great joy in serving one another and much more so when you do it for someone you love.
Friendship. You’ll have someone there with you through the good times and bad.
Trust. It is comforting to know that you are with someone who always wants what’s best for you and that you can confide in him or her without fear.
Physical and Emotional Intimacy. Marriage is a unique relationship in which the Lord binds two people in an eternal relationship whose goals include oneness, togetherness, and joy.

Those are just few of the amazing things that come from a Temple marriage. Now, I know that non-temple marriages can have a lot of those things spoken about above, but if you only knew how significantly more they can be with the Lord at the center with a Temple marriage is unmatchable, unthinkable, unforgettable. I know that the Church Of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints is the true church and I am so grateful for a loving, priesthood-holding husband that I get to be with for ETERNITY.

keeping up with the cox's

You guys... We moved to UTAH!

After much prayer and thinking, we finally decided to start looking into other job opportunities for Tyson. I knew he would be amazing wherever he went and I have always told him I would follow him to the edge of the world, but it was time to be closer to family and closer to each other. We are hoping that this change will only grow our relationships around us and ours most importantly!

It's always bittersweet to move and for change. We miss our Arizonian family very much and can't wait to see them again. We have been blessed with good people and the wonderful church wherever we go and will be forever grateful for that.

Tyson has accepted a new job in Utah working as a Superintendent. He's the bomb.com and will do such an amazing job! I am so proud of him! He is hard working and it has truly paid off. We are now in the search of our next home while we sell and say goodbye to our Arizona home.

There is no way we would have made it to where we a…

fishlake family reunion '17

Thanks to @lacedwithlove for making us the cutest shirts for our reunion!  I LOVE THESE PEOPLE!
FAMILY REUNION!! This was so fun for our little family to finally be able to go to. This is the one and only camping trip my family does in the year and we were so excited to live close enough this year to be able to go! Being back home is fun! 
My family grew up going to Fishlake when we were all younger and it was awesome to take Tyson there for the first time! We fished and played and fished and played until we couldn't fish and play anymore! 
All the kids ran around and had a hard time not wanting to play in the water or the roads!! They played together and got very dirty. Riggs had a hard time keeping up with the older three. He had quite a few tumbles and falls throughout the weekend, but he was still a happy camper!
We longboarded in honor of our little sister Mandee since she couldn't be there. She was off saving the day being a wildfire firefighter! Love you mandroo. Luckily no…
