What Really Happens in "Mormon" Temples?



If you’ve ever seen an LDS temple, chances are you’ve wondered what it is and what goes on inside. Or you may have even heard some rumor about the “strange” or “mysterious” rituals that take place there. Growing up a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I’ve probably heard them all; and I’d agree with anyone who said that some of them are, well…pretty weird. 

The truth is, there are a lot of misconceptions about LDS temples, including the idea that what goes on there is some big secret. On the contrary, an entire section of the church’s official website is devoted to answering questions about temples and what happens inside them. But my purpose here is not to review all of the FAQs of temples; there are plenty of other resources offering that kind of information (a few of these are listed at the bottom of this post). Instead, I’d like to take a more personal approach by sharing some of my own experiences inside the temple and the blessings that have come through those experiences.

5 Words That Changed Elder Holland's Graduate School Experience



Elder Jeffrey R. Holland is a beloved speaker and leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He is a master teacher, with a gift for sharing experiences from his life in a powerful way that imparts memorable lessons. Many of us can recall, for example, his story of pulling a small U-Haul trailer behind his family's old car, only to have the car break down--twice--after driving just 34 miles of his family's 2,600 mile journey to graduate school.
