Tour of Temple Square - Weeekends Update



My weekend hasn't been very eventful. Our plane was delayed getting back due to leaking hydraulic fluid, so I was very thankful we landed safely and were on a plane that actually stopped.

Then we met my family to pick up our son. I've missed him so much!

And we've also been trying to unpack and do laundry. I know you're jealous.

Since my weekend has been so chock full of excitement, I'll share our tour of Temple Square in Salt Lake City this past week.

Temple Square is over 35 acres in SLC belonging to the Mormon faith. We were given a tour by two girls serving on their mission. One of them was Sister Romney who is, in fact, related to Mitt.

It was extrememly convicting to see how passionate they are about their faith. They were so young yet so knowledgeable about their religion's history as well as the Bible. They spend at least 2 hours per day studying the Bible.

 I pray that I myself would be this passionate about the Lord so that all those around me see His light shining through me as I did with these two ladies.

I've always wanted to see temple square! It looks gorgeous. And it always amazes me how faithful and loving Mormons are, I think we should all strive to have those qualities.

I'm sure you get this a lot, but you and your sister look so much alike! Lol. And I'm not Mormon, but I've always wanted to see the temple. It looks so incredibly beautiful!
