130th Temple

The dedication of the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple has been taking place this weekend and will conclude today. I am so excited for those saints who live in close proximity to this temple. Even though there are many temples in Utah, it is still wonderful to be able to live so close to one. Did you know this is the 13th temple to be built in Utah? I tried naming them all the other day and I came up to 12...I missed the Monticello Temple. See if you can name them all...
St. George
Mt. Timpanogas
Oquirrh MT.
Jordan River
Salt Lake City
To celebrate the newest temple dedication, have a Family Home Evening discussing temples and see how many Utah temples your family knows!

And I think what I'm most excited for is this picture.. taken on Friday the 21st, just a couple of days ago. Can't you just see our Prophet dedicating the Kansas City Temple??? I envy those who are in attendance in Utah but I know our time will come when the doors to our very own temple will be opened and we will witness the dedication of His Holy House right here in our own city.

Please let me be there when that day comes!

I just got back from one of those dedications. It was amazing. The spirit was there in abundance. I love the temple. I can't wait for you to be able to participate in your own temple dedication. Did you know that it was Pres. Monson's bday when that picture was taken?

We just moved out to Utah for my job. We got to attend the final session via satellite at our Stake Center. (There was no Sacrament Meeting for anyone in the Valley that day! Cancelled so everyone could attend one of the two televised sessions!

Those calm and cool Utahn probably thought me weird as I wept through the Spirit of God. My voice and body were in Utah, my heart and mind were on Searcy Boulevard in North Kansas City.

Keep up the good work!
