As We Meet Again

This entry is part of my general conference application series.

As We Meet Again, by Thomas S. Monson
President, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Which is the most important of all the Church-owned or Church-built facilities, and why? (e.g. meetinghouses, temples, ranches/farms, packing plants)

Here's President Monson's answer:

No Church-built facility is more important than a temple. Temples are places where relationships are sealed together to last through the eternities. We are grateful for all the many temples across the world and for the blessing they are in the lives of our members.

I'm grateful for temples. While our current temple is farther away than anywhere else we've lived as a family, we still excitedly go each month! (But we're very excited that a new temple is being built a couple of hours closer in Ft. Lauderdale.)

Yes, I love the temple, but I'm more pleased that my children love the temple and don't complain about the day full of driving associated with our monthly temple trips. We're learning and regularly re-learning the benefits of temples and regular temple attendance, together.
