Today is a special day for rejoicing! A new temple has been dedicated in Brigham City, UT. There are now 139 temples in use across the globe. Temples are a very special places that feel like a little bit of heaven on earth. I always get a special feeling when I attend the temple. I feel peaceful and closer to God. I come away feeling brighter and more dedicated and able to face the challenges of daily life.
In a holy temple of God, we can be sealed together with our families for forever. "'Til death do we part" need no longer apply!
I was able to attend one of the sessions of the dedication ceremony today. An apostle of Jesus Christ, Boyd K. Packer, spoke about how this particular temple is special to him since he grew up and raised his own family in Brigham City.
If you want to learn more about temples and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, visit www.lds.org/church/temples, or mormon.org. If you are not a member of the Church and would like to visit a temple open house before it is dedicated, be quick about it and you can visit Calgary Alberta or Boise Idaho.
