“The temple provides purpose to our lives. It brings peace to our souls – not the peace provided by men but the peace promised by the Son of God when He said, ‘Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you.’ In the temple we can feel close to the Lord. I think there is no place in the world where I feel closer to the Lord than in one of his Holy temples.”

“The temple lifts and exalts us. In the temple, the precious plan of God is taught. It is in the temple that eternal covenants are made. The temple lifts us, exalts us, stands as a beacon for all to see, and points us toward celestial glory. It is the house of God. All that occurs within the walls of the temple is uplifting and ennobling.”
