The Space Between

It is all connected in such a beautiful way! God’s purpose.
The atonement of Christ. Our covenants and ordinances. And those waiting in the “space between…”

The Fresno California Temple

As with all temples, the grounds were lush and beautiful, with some fresh spring blossoms popping up on the trees. 

The Oakland California Temple

Even here, where it was closed and had many areas fenced off, the spirit of peace was felt. You don’t have to be inside to know it’s a special place.

Be of Good Cheer

Lift up your head and be of good cheer; for behold, the time is at hand, and on this night shall the sign be given, and on the morrow come I into the world…

The Logan Utah Temple

Fast forward almost three decades, and I was able to return to the Logan Temple sitting up on that beautiful green hill. This time with my own children in tow.

The Star Valley Wyoming Temple

Driving down highway 89, we eagerly looked ahead anticipating the temple. It is still such a joy when I first see that spire.

The Rexburg Idaho Temple

I think the feelings we get are a tiny glimpse of what it will be like to live and walk with God. Peace, hope, gratitude, wonder, and a feeling of home.

The Cardston Alberta Temple

Yes, our visit extended our day by quite a bit, but it was so worth it. I can’t imagine having missed out on such a wonderful place.

The Spokane Washington Temple

I’m so grateful for our loving Heavenly Father who so desires to bless his children. These small temples are a perfect example of that love.

The Provo City Center Temple

Saving what we thought was lost has enormous significance. It speaks to our deepest beliefs, that nothing is truly lost, and that all things can be made whole again.

The Provo Utah Temple

And the Lord will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion… a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night.
