The Mountain of the Lord

Temples truly are the "mountain of the Lord." They are a high place, above the calamities, distractions, and sundry other mishaps that surround us in the world. Temples are a place of purity, where the most sacred work of the Lord is moved forward. 

I love to see the temple. Any temple. They are all beautiful.

I love the opportunity I have to do Baptisms for the Dead and participate in the work of providing the opportunity for covenants that bring blessings to those who have passed on.

I love the feelings of peace, clarity, and joy that I feel in the Temple.

I look forward to the day when I can enter the Temple and receive my endowments, and then be sealed for time and eternity to a worthy priesthood-holder. 

Recently, I visited these temples:


Mesa Arizona TempleSnowflake Arizona Temple

And on Friday, I'll get to visit this temple:
Jordan River Utah Temple
...how amazing is that?


[Update]


Some things I discovered this weekend:

  • I'm not very good at ice skating. (I don't know why I do it, but it was pretty fun.)
  • I really miss my roommate when she's gone. (Love ya Aubs.)
  • Rachel + Kylie = Craziness (see above photo)
  • I love getting food sent from home :D Yay for cheese and chocolate and apples!
  • Sister Stradling is like Aubree on caffeine. (I already knew that, but had it reaffirmed.) I don't know if I've ever laughed so much in my life.
