I also felt that no one had prepared me for the experience and wondered why. So I came out of the temple that first day with a million questions swirling around in my head. Like a good Mormon should, I smiled, and said ‘yes it was a wonderful experience” to anyone who asked, but on the ride home I was pretty quiet.
