I'll try to post some more family pictures soon, but in the meantime check out this new video about LDS (Mormon) temples on YouTube. It was produced by the Church to help explain the importance of the temple to Mormons. There is a show on HBO called "Big Love" which spreads a lot of innacurate information about the Mormons and it has an upcoming episode that they say will include portions of the temple ceremonies. There is going to be lots of extra media attention to the temples in the next few months, and we should take every chance we get to dispel any innacuracies in the information that is being dispersed. Share this video on your blogs or on Facebook to help get the word out!
Our family got to go to the open house of the new Draper Temple here in Draper, Utah a few weekends ago. The kids loved it! This was their first time in a temple, and they had a lot of questions. Ella was especially excited to see the room that "is just like Heaven". Valerie is looking forward to being old enough to go do baptisms soon.
I'm thankful to live in an area that has so many temples so close to our home. It's so convenient. We take it for granted so often. I have a lot of respect for people that live far away from a temple but still manage to take the time to attend regularly.
Wow, this was a wordy blog post (for me at least). Back to family pictures and craft/vacation updates!
