Summer of Temples

My dear friend Erin and I (along with Owen) have made a goal for ourselves this summer...visit and do a session in all of the temples in Utah. My new found love for the temple has come from reading this book:

I fell IN LOVE with this book. I first started reading it at my sister-in-laws house and I could not put it down. I had to order one for myself too. The author draws a beautiful picture of each temple and gives a history of its preparation, building, and dedication of each one. But my favorite part about the book are the amazing stories of sacrifice, miracles and heavenly guidance that occurred for each temple building. It truly gives me a testimony of the importance of temple work on this earth. The stories of the first temples built are so inspiring to me. The amount of faith that the these people must have had for our Heavenly Father and his work is greater than I can imagine. My favorite stories will be coming to the blog soon.

Salt Lake Temple temple down...ten more to go!
