On Thursday, June 26 (2008), I drove from my home in Arizona the several hours it took to arrive at 5:00 p.m. at Sandy, Utah’s Southe Towne Center. I was just in time for dinner at the Olive Garden.
I sat across from HiJolly (and I found out that he and I are shirttail relatives!). Honor was on my right hand, and skalenfehl’s lovely wife was on my left. pam was diagonally across from me. The rest of the friends at the table were VisionofLehi, Fernni, hanne_linne, skalenfehl, Elphaba, Strawberry Fields, Nyal (and Nyal’s brother – not an LDS.net member – yet!), AND prisonchaplain (who was vacationing in Utah with his family and seeing Temple Square for the first time; prisonchaplain is from Washington). Honor even had checkerboy on the cell phone for a minute or two for a shout out. Jonathan, Karen and Richard from More Good Foundation were also there. (I’m sorry if I missed noting anyone’s presence – let me know!)Read More
“I took this shot during April Conference Weekend. As we walked through Temple Square I happened to glance up right as the angel Moroni was peeking through the trees, and I loved the image. Later, as I studied it, I found myself thinking there is a lot of symbolism here. I hope you enjoy it!”
There are 88 (or more!) pictures of temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that are being shared in the Gallery of LDS.net. Many of these pictures are photos that you may not see anywhere else on the Internet because they are photos that site members took themselves. You can a see a photo of the Mt. Timpanogos temple that my son took when we were there in March 2008 for my sister’s wedding.
Visit the LDS.net Gallery by selecting the green, square link near the top of any page on the LDS.net site. On the Main page of the Gallery, near the top on the left-hand, is a Category drop down. You can select “Temples” from the drop down choices.
Enjoy! Even better — share your own temple photos by using the Upload Your Images page in the Gallery, or the Upload Picture option at your My Account page.
It would be wonderful to be able to travel the world to see each temple in person. But we have the next best thing on LDS.net — we can see the temples through the eyes of our brothers and sisters in the Lord as we share, through photos, our own experiences with temples.Read More
