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).

Do You Want the Influence of Dignity, Wisdom, Inspiration, and Spirituality?

“Members of the Church cannot touch this work without becoming affected spiritually.  The spirit of Elijah permeates it.  Many of the little intrusions into our lives, the little difficulties and the petty problems that beset us, are put into proper perspective when we view the linking of the generations for the eternities.  We become much more patient then.  So if you want the influence of dignity and wisdom and inspiration and spirituality to envelop your life, involve yourself in temple and genealogical work.”  

- Boyd K. Packer, The Holy Temple, Bookcraft, 1980, p. 224-225.
