Temple

    Really everything we’ve done in these last few days together circling the globe could be summed up in two words — the temple,” President Russell M. Nelson.
    “I think the youth of this generation have been saved for this time--to bring family history forward.”
    During the announcement of President Russell M. Nelson as the 17th President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Tuesday January 16, 2018, I eagerly anticipated his first message to church members.
    “Our son taught us, though, that family history is really a big puzzle that needs to be carefully examined and put together to form family groups.”
    “When you do family history, it seems like they are not a number anymore—they are real people. You learn to love them.”
    Unique experiences lead to conversion and knowledge of the Lord’s love.
    Latter-day Saints believe that the temple is the house of the Lord. Learn why temples are built and what happens at a Latter-day Saint temple dedication.
    Every time the missionaries came to teach us more, our whole house was filled with the spirit of the Lord. It seemed as if our whole house was on fire.
    “It seemed as though all the talks and lessons were inspired.”
    The strength of the southern Alberta Saints attests to the blessings that have come from having a temple in their midst.
    I heard a voice speaking to me telling me to help my great grandmother to get baptized.
    “I never thought I would get to be in the temple.”
