Oquirrh Mt and Jordan River Temples

We, together with our dearest friends the Andersons, decided to visit some Temples together.  A couple of weeks ago we went to the Oquirrh Mt. Temple.
 Last month we also wanted to go there and checked the times and all was clear.  However, when we got there, the temple was closed.  So we quickly changed our plans and went to the Jordan River Temple.  Both of these temples are very beautiful.  In fact I think all temples are beautiful.
 A temple is a place where people go to have sacred ordinances performed.  Many members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints go to the temple to get married.  There they can be married for time and all eternity by one who has the proper authority to perform such a marriage.  Baptisms for the dead are also performed in temples.  These baptisms are done so that every person who has ever lived on this earth can have the opportunity to either accept or reject the principles and ordinances of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 The day we were at the temple there were about 6 couples walking around with their photographer having their wedding photos taken.  I always love to see all the beautiful brides.

After going through the temple we usually go out to lunch.  We have been having a really nice time together.

It's so wonderful that there are so many temples so close together.

Temples are such a blessing.
