Recently, we went through the Ogden Temple. Usually, before a temple is dedicated, the Church allows visitors to tour through the temple in an Open House format. They totally reconstructed it, and it is stunning!
We had been telling the girls that they would be going, but until I stopped them and said, “we’ll be going through the parts that you won’t be able to see until you are much older, and you can see the areas that you can choose to get married in someday” that they started to pay attention.
If you are in the area, I highly recommend taking your family and going. It is so beautiful, and even without it being dedicated there is an amazing spirit there. You can get reservations here and it will continue until Saturday, September 6th, 2014. You don’t have to be a member of the LDS faith to attend, and is truly worth your time.
On another note, I wanted to share this really wonderful conversion story. Not only did it have a beautiful and touching message, but I was struck by the visual artistry.
We watched it for Family Home Evening tonight, my daughters loved the, “they prayed over the hot dogs” line. Enjoy!
