Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House

We had the opportunity to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House on Friday. What a beautiful temple! I can't wait to be able to go this temple! We had a great time and it was nice not having to chase the kids around like when we went to the Draper Temple Open House. We got to go with our great friends Michael and Krista and we had a wonderful time. The part that really hit me was when they were talking about what oquirrh means in Ute Indian language. Oquirrh means "shining" or "glowing". What a fantastic name for this temple. When you drive down to the 'The District' this temple truly is 'shining' or 'glowing' for all to see! It is beautiful and just is breathtaking as you see it when you drive around the corner. I'm am so grateful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that because of temples we can be eternal families and I'm so grateful for the priesthood and that is restored to the earth at this time. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and know that all the happiness I have in my life is because of the church! Thank you Dad and Mom for teaching me the gospel and having such strong testimonies! Thank you Kelly and Sherie for raising such a righteous son who is so amazing! Thank you Mike for being you! I love you! Thank you all my dear family and friends for always being there. I love you all so much! I'm still a little emotional about our ward split. I can't imagine church without so many of you. But I know that the Stake Presidency was inspired and know that it will be good for our stake. Enjoy the pictures!

Just beautiful isn't it!

"Holiness to the Lord. The House of the Lord."
This is truly the Lord's house.

It truly is 'shining' for all to see! Just amazing!
