a day at the temple

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or more commonly known as the Mormons.We have many meeting houses through out the world, that all, are invited to. We also have buildings called temples that you need a "recommend" which is given to you by your bishop after an interview.We have temples through out the world, I think now totalling about 130.
The reason I'm sharing this with you is because our oldest granddaughter turned twelve today, and when your twelve you can enter the temple and do baptisms for the dead. So, today we were able to go with Rachel and her parents to the temple.Going into the temple is such a delight, you leave your daily cares behind , letting the peace overcome you. It was a special experience , so happy we were able to be here.

  1. Linda! I am a Mormon also! I found your blog by clicking on the "next blog button". We live in Murray, Utah and our temple is the Jordan River Temple. How wonderful it is to find a soul mate. Please come and visit me at my blog-juliesjabber-julie.blogspot.com. I am an aritist and love to share in creativity.

  2. Linda, I just answered you on my blog but I didn't know if you would see it. I'm a little new to this. Anyway, I'm probably about your age and a grandma too! We have 1 grandson and a granddaughter on the way. It's too fun, isn't it? Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that I went back to school last September. I dropped out of school when I was a senior in the 70's so my first husband could go to law school in CA. So many years later I'm back at the U. of U. and finishing my art history degree. I really have finished my major pretty much (just need senior seminar and a writing class for my degree)but now I'm taking the extra classes I need to finish. I have to tell you that it's a blast! I love it but I'm only taking 1 class at a time. So, you can do it too! Let's keep tabs on each other. We can be each other's pep club. So.... GO LINDA GO!
