New Temple

Last week it came out that a new temple will be built in Gilbert, Arizona, as well as another temple in the Gila Valley area in Arizona. Above is a rendering of what the Gilbert temple is supposed to look like. I am so excited! It is just beautiful! I can't wait to see it being built. What a great opportunity the open house will provide to show my children the interior of a temple. What would be even better would be to take them to the dedication services, although I am sure that will be by ticket only. In any case, whatever I can do to help my children look forward to going to the temple when they are older gets put on my essential To-Do list.

Note: I have just learned there is some debate as to whether this is really a rendering of the proposed Gilbert temple or not--since I do not know how to verify it, I will just leave it at that.

Scripture of the Day: D&C 127:5-10


  1. This is so exciting, Becky! I'm thinking the Gila Valley Temple will be the new temple for my parents.

  2. Yhea! How neat to take the kids to an open house. . .maybe they'll make the dedication available in stake houses as I've seen them do before? Wouldn't that be great!
