Look At What's Happening In My Area

As many of my readers know, I'm a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. Temples are an important part of our faith.  Just as in the days of the Old and New Testament, we attend the Holy Temple to perform sacred saving ordinances for ourselves and our kindred dead.


     * Ezekiel 7:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant        with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. (KJV)


       * Luke 2:27 And he, (Simeon) came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law, ...(KJV)


We have a new temple being built just a few miles from our home!  it will be such a blessing!


This is where it will be built

This is a drawing of what it will look like




The ordinances performed in Holy Temples are: 

  • Baptism for the Dead.  This is where we are baptized in behalf of someone who was not able to be baptized before they died.  It is a proxy ordinance. 
              *1 Corinthians 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why then are they baptized for the dead? (KJV)
  •  Eternal Marriage and Sealing.  We believe that when a couple are married/sealed in the Holy Temple by a man holding the proper Priesthood authority, this husband and wife can be together for eternity if they keep their covenants. Their children are sealed to them for eternity also. 
  • Special Saving Ordinances performed in the temple necessary for our salvation. We make promises to God and He also promises to bless us if we keep those promises.

    @Rachel, I love living near the mountains...remember the prophecy given in

    Isaiah 2:2
    And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

    It's being fulfilled!

  6. WahoO! Which temple is this one going to be called? it is absolutely GORGEOUS in the drawing; I can't wait for it to be finished.

    At the last conference I Screamed and Cried when President Monson announced the newest Temples; for the last one is being built in MY hometown! We've prayed for MANY years for a temple there; and it is now a reality! First one in Wyoming too! So the Star Valley Temple may be my Favorite temple..and they don't even have a drawing of it yet. lol.

    Ha-RAH for Israel!

  7. 3 years to finish? Wow. I didn't realize it takes so long. Our temple here took less than a year, but it's one of the smaller ones.

  8. @Amber, It will be the Payson Temple. One of my favorite parts of General Conference is seeing where the new temples are going to be built... like you said, Ha-RAH for Israel!

    @Grandma Honey, Ours was going to be smaller, but when they remodel the Provo Temple they needed a bigger one to take over, so they re-designed Payson into a bigger one!
