Temples were built in Old Testament times and have been part of God's plan from the beginning. So, what is the purpose of Temples?
Today, in modern times, the gospel of Jesus
Christ has been restored to the earth and temples are a key part of the work of the Lord taking place around the world.
Temples are a place of worship where Latter-day Saints are allowed to enter and perform saving ordinances for the living and the dead. These Holy edifices stand as a beacon of light to the world and symbolically represent Jesus Christ. On each temple is etched the words, "Holiness to the Lord," because it is His sacred house.
I enjoy going to the temple. It is a sanctuary of peace, a place of refuge from the storm of commotion all around us in the world today. My wife and I went to the Idaho Falls Templethis evening and I wanted to capture a few shots of it...
Enjoy. . . I want to learn more about temples.

I know that when I put my trust in the Lord and seek his will rather than my own selfish desires I am blessed.
Nephi was blessed in particular for 5 things he did:
4 aBlessed art thou, Nephi, for those things which thou hast done; for I have beheld how 1. thou hast with bunwearyingness declared the word, which I have given unto thee, unto this people. And 2. thou hast not feared them, and 3. hast not sought thine cown life, but 4. hast sought my dwill, and 5. to keep my commandments.
