We were so grateful to have the opportunity to visit Nauvoo while my mom and sister were here. It was such a spiritual and special weekend for each of us and helped our testimonies grow! We were able to visit many of the historic sites in Nauvoo, the Visitors' Center, the Nauvoo Temple, Joseph Smith's grave site, and Carthage Jail. We felt the Spirit so strongly and are so thankful for the sacrifices of the early saints.
My mom, Michelle, and I were able to go back to Nauvoo the next week to do Baptisms for the Dead at the Nauvoo Temple. This was such a wonderful and spiritual experience for all three of us, and it was such a special day. One blessing that we received while at the temple was that we were able to meet Elder Neil L. Anderson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. He was visiting the temple that evening and came in to meet those doing Baptisms. It was such an amazing blessing!
