I love to see the Temple.

The House of the Lord, our beautiful new temple.


My Eternal Family minus one sweet little boy who stayed home to play with Grandma. We love you Mason!!

This bench is at the Chapel to the West of the temple. Its a darling little bench that says "I love to see the temple: Donated by and in behalf of the children in this area."


Our kiddo's on the bench at the chapel across the street.

The bench with the temple behind them.

We had the blessing of attending the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house this weekend as a family. We talked with our children about the blessings of the temple in Monday's family home evening. Then when we got there we were able to take our time and enjoy the feeling there. Of course it is beautiful because it is the house of the Lord, but the feeling that we felt there was incredible. We were able to stop with our family in the sealing room and look in the Eternal Mirrors. We talked to our children about how our family will go on for ever if we do what we should. Kena even asked if she could get married there. It was wonderful, spiritual and beautiful. I'm so greatful to have had the oppurtunity to spend time with my Eternal family in the place that makes it all possible!
