"The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally." (The Family: A Proclamation to the World, 1995)
I am so grateful for the temple. It means that if my husband and I live worthily throughout our lives, we can be together forever with our children throughout eternity. It gives purpose to keeping our marriage together.
