Preparation for the Temple

Last week, a close family friend went to the temple to receive her endowment. In preparation for that event, I wrote her a letter with temple preparation advice. The first half of the letter was practical advice about garment styles, and the second half was about the theology of the temple, with the specific purpose of mitigating some of the gendered language of the ceremony. I've reproduced the second half of the letter below, edited to remove any personal information.

I will be moderating comments on this post due to the sensitive nature of the topic. Comments that violate the comment policy or that quote lengthy excerpts from the temple ordinances will not be posted.

I've been away from the blog for a while, but I'm still here. I took the bar exam a few weeks ago, and I think it went well. I have a few non-bar-exam-related posts in the draft stage, but I have been too tired to write much of anything. I'll try to get something out within a week or so.
