Temple Visits

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.

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.

The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple

It was the 13th temple to be built in Utah, the fourth in the Salt Lake Valley, and the second temple in the city of South Jordan. Dude.

The Boise Idaho Temple

I love to see how the designs have changed through the years. Boise has the detached six spire design, and is the same as both the Chicago and Dallas temples.

The Twin Falls Idaho Temple

It is interesting the feelings that the temple can stir up in us, those feelings of home. Even seeing it off in the distance brought a sense of peace.
