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).

We Must Keep Our Focus

Payson Temple - © Stuart Gardner
“ … and other choice spirits who were reserved to come forth in the fulness of times to take part in laying the foundations of the great latter-day work, including the building of the temples and the performance of ordinances therein for the redemption of the dead, were also in the spirit world.”
 – Doctrine and Covenants 138:53-54

“In order to perform this great work, we must be worthy. No wonder we are surrounded on every side with things designed to [disinterest], discourage, distract, or disqualify us. We must keep our focus, and we must remember that the temple is the reason for everything we do in the Church.” 
– Elaine S. Dalton, “We Did This For You,” October 2004 General Conference.
