The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

Temple is the Connecting Link

“And so we have two great churches, one in heaven, the other upon the earth.  They are moving along parallel lines, and the temple of God, it appears to me, is the connecting link that connects the heavens with the earth, because it is through the temple that we will be able to reach our dead and not otherwise.  To pray for the dead may not be of any real assistance to them.  To actually help them, we must do a work for them.”

– Rudger Clawson (Conference Report April 1933, pp 77-78; Doctrines of the Gospel Student Man., p 85)
