Coming home


I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Some call us Mormons. 

But I am guessing you already knew that. The part about me being a member and that we are called Mormons.

One the things that drew me into #octoberhouse was its location, or rather what was across the street from its location. 


This magnificent building is the LDS Logan Utah Temple. Isn't it breathtaking

Just as in ancient biblical times, we still believe in building temples today. The temples are built so God's children could be taught and blessed. In the temple we make sacred covenants with God. It is in these sacred and holy walls that we seal families together for all time and eternity, ensuring the earthly familiar bonds extend beyond the grave when we pass from this life.

With the temple being so close, I am trying to go every week. I love being able to walk out my door, cross the street and be on sacred ground. 

For me, there is no other place that I feel closer to God than when I am in this building. It is so peaceful, so warm, so welcoming. It gives me a glimpse of what Heaven is like. It is the closest thing this earth has to offer me as to my true home, that Heavenly Home with God above.

I apologize about no Facebook Finds Friday. This post was already written earlier in the week and grad school is kicking my tail end this week as the semester is finishing up. And when it does finish, I will be halfway to a master!!!
