I love to see the Temple...

This is where my husband and I were married.

This is the Washington DC temple. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Temples are literally houses of the Lord. They are holy places of worship where individuals make sacred covenants with God. Because making covenants with God is such a solemn responsibility, individuals cannot enter the temple to receive their endowments or be sealed in marriage for eternity until they have fully prepared themselves and been members of the Church for at least a year. Throughout history, the Lord has commanded His people to build temples. The Church is working to build temples all over the world to make temple blessings more available for a greater number of Heavenly Father's children. (from lds.org)

I love it, Anna! Our blog is private, and we don't have a lot of non-members who have access to it, but I may just borrow this post from you anyway, if you don't mind.

Of course, Mandi. Pretty much all of it was quoted from lds.org in the Gospel Topics section under "temples." So you're not really borrowing from me anyway:)
