He Lives: Testimonies of Jesus Christ

Lesson 14: The Blessings of the Temple

Blessings of the Temple

President Gordon B. Hinckley, First Counselor in the First Presidency, said that the temple is “a symbol of strength, a haven of peace, a sanctuary of service, a school of instruction, a place of revelation, … a house of covenants” (“The Salt Lake Temple,” Ensign, Mar. 1993, p. 4). 

President Harold B. Lee said: “When you enter a holy temple, you are by that course gaining fellowship with the Saints in God’s eternal kingdom, where time is no more. In the temples of your God you are endowed not with a rich legacy of worldly treasure, but with a wealth of eternal riches that are above price” (“Enter a Holy Temple,” Improvement Era, June 1967, p. 144).

"A teacher affects eternity; he or she never knows when their influence stops."

Thanks to all our wonderful teachers, parents, young men and young women for a successful Teacher Appreciation Night.  A special thanks to Jamie Jasperson for organizing this event and all her hard work and time put into this project.  We had a great turnout and many positive comments.

It was very touching to hear our youth tell how their teachers have influences their lives.  Please share your experiences from that evening.
