As Latter-day Saints, we set goals and strive to visit the temple regularly. But for one LDS woman, this goal reached an exciting and new extreme.
A couple of weeks before turning 50, Annette Christensen accomplished her goal of visiting 50 temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before her 50th birthday.
From the time she was 16 until now, Christensen has been to five international temples and 45 temples in 12 states. During one of her temple trips, she served in seven temples in just three days.
Christensen said she made this a serious goal three years ago when she was living in Hawaii. Her friend “was anticipating 30 things she could do before she turned 30,” and Christensen thought that was fun.
