SLC Trip

We made it to Salt Lake City, Utah this weekend. It was a whirlwind of a trip. We traveled Thursday to Utah. We traveled Saturday home to California. Friday was the day we visited with family, friends, and attended my brother Adam's wedding. Here are some photos from our very wonderful day.

“The temple is a place of beauty,
it is a place of revelation,
it is a place of peace.
It is the house of the Lord.
It is holy unto the Lord.
It should be holy unto us.”

President Howard W. Hunter
Ensign, October 1994, 2

“As we touch the temple, the temple will touch us.”

“When you return from the temple,
share with your children and loved ones at home
your feelings about what you experienced.
Speak not of the sacred ordinances,
but of the love and power manifest by them.”

Elder David B. Haight
"Come to the House of the Lord"
Ensign, May 1992, 16 
"Remember this day that you touched the temple.
One day you will go inside."

“You are never lost when you can see the temple.”
quoted by Elder Gary E. Stevenson

"The most important single thing
that any Latter-day Saint
ever does in this world
is to marry the right person,
in the right place,
by the right authority."

Elder Bruce R. McConkie,
"Agency or Inspiration?"
New Era, Jan. 1975, 38

Greeting their two kids as they exited the temple.
Michael, Emma, Adam, and Sally

"Marriage itself must be regarded
as a sacred covenant before God.
A married couple have an obligation
not only to each other, but to God.
He has promised blessings
to those who honor that covenant. . . .

"Husbands and wives who love each other
will find that love and loyalty are reciprocated.
This love will provide a nurturing atmosphere
for the emotional growth of children. . . ."

Ezra Taft Benson,
"Salvation—A Family Affair,"
Ensign, July 1992, 2

  At the reception
Janna and Janet
“Let us walk in the light of the Lord.”
Isaiah 2:5

Our substitute mother, Janeen Stevens, and Adam

One other word is equal
in importance to a Latter-day Saint.
Put the words holy temple and home together,
and you have described the house of the Lord!”

Boyd K. Packer,
“The Temple, the Priesthood,”
Ensign, May 1993, 20 
More cousin fun after the reception

“Within the sound of my voice
are many young women, young men, and children.
I plead with you to be worthy,
to be steadfast,
and to look forward with great anticipation
to the day you will receive
the ordinances and blessings of the temple.”
David A. Bednar,
“Honorably Hold a Name and Standing,”
Ensign, May 2009, 100
