When was the last time you attended the temple?
Now that the temples are opening, hopefully you can say it was recent! Thankfully, I was able to go a couple weeks ago. My temple district (Oklahoma City) is in Phase 3 and Brock and I were able to take an impromptu trip during a particularly difficult week.
It brought so much peace.
It was also the first time I had been to the temple since really dedicating my time to temple and family history work. The mindset was so different as I sat in the sealing room with my husband, actually connecting members of my family tree – it came with a whole new appreciation.
When our hearts turn to our ancestors, something changes inside us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves– Russell M Nelson
I truly believe what President Nelson has told us, that turning our hearts to our ancestors will change us! It is changing me and I’m so grateful that we can start doing the work in the temples for our families once again.
What Phase is your Temple in?
As of July 26, 2021, all United States temples are open to Phase 3. This means all living and limited proxy ordinances can be performed upon appointment!
The only exception to this is the Mesa, Arizona and Salt Lake City, Utah temples which are currently undergoing renovations.
Most of the South American temples are currently open to Phase 2 and Phase 2B. Phase 2 allows for all living ordinances by appointment, and 2B adds proxy baptisms, also by appointment.
As you prepare to go to the temple again, remember the many blessings that will surround you and your family, both on this side of the veil and the other.
