The Blessings of a New Temple

Today in church, we had a combined meeting with all of the adults and youth concerning the new temple being finished in Draper. This is going to be a truly massive undertaking with nearly 700 volunteers needed during each day of the open house. With just 25 stakes to draw from, this means that we'll all have to pitch in to ensure that things run smoothly.

Most exciting, though, is the timing of the open house. It will be running from mid-January through mid-March, around the time that a lot of my family will be visiting from out-of-state. I'm the only member of my family to have joined the LDS Church, so this presents a unique opportunity for aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, parents and maybe even my brother to see what the inside of a temple looks like. I'm very excited to have them come out and visit us when Liam arrives, but even more so that I can share an important part of my life that I don't often discuss with all of them.

    That’s so fun. I really enjoyed it when the Sacramento temple was finished. Volunteering is really cool – you’ll love it. And the tours, of course, are a really fun thing for friends & family members that wouldn’t ordinarily get to see inside. I’m excited for you.
