When I first started chatting online in 1996, there wasn’t an LDS.org website. I was also a bit naive, not realizing most people I encountered online had no idea who Mormons were. When the question of where I was from was asked, there would always be one person in the room who would say, “Utah eh? Are you a Mormon?” When I responded “Yes,” the conversation in the room would always turn into a Q&A session about Mormons. It didn’t take me long to realize that most people just wanted to find out more about what I believed. They didn’t want to talk to the Missionaries, at least not at first. One person in that I was talking with in 1997 did contact the missionaries and was baptized. But, there are many others that only wanted a few curiosities resolved. It was then that I learned the most important thing I could do is set a good example for my religion, because I may be the only Mormon these people would ever talk to.I would be the one who would determine their perspective of all Mormons.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
