Prepare Physically

Elder Russell M. Nelson

“You prepare physically by dressing properly to go to the temple. It is not a place for casual attire. Latter-day prophets have emphasized self-respect for our physical bodies. That respect should be observed especially by those who would enter a holy temple.”


The Temple

Elder Russell M. Nelson

“The temple is the object of every activity, every lesson, every progressive step in the Church. All of our efforts in proclaiming the gospel, perfecting the Saints, and redeeming the dead lead to the holy temple. Ordinances of the temple are absolutely crucial. We cannot return to God’s glory without them.”


Seeking The Blessings Of God


“Many will come seeking blessings of the Lord, answers to prayer, or knowledge, healing, and peace. Some come with broken hearts, with a prayer on their lips that the Savior’s healing balm will bring peace to their souls. They all come expecting to be lifted up. They come expecting to find the Lord. They come seeking the blessings of God.”


Temple And Family History Work


“Temple and family history work is one work divided into two parts. They are connected together like the ordinances of baptism and the gift of the Holy Ghost. Some members may not be able to do both works because of health or distances to temples.”
