Many of you know a new temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints broke ground in early November last year at 1101 McCollum drive next to I-49 in Bentonville, Arkansas. With expected completion in late 2022, I felt prompted to build a virtual model of it using the documents that were submitted to the city for approval. 

 

The temple is about connecting our families together, I am excited to have a temple so close. I share this video with you that you might also feel His Spirit and look forward to the day when we can visit it in real life. I know that the covenants that we make in the temple, with our Lord and our God, are sacred and will help me live with Them, sealed together with my family, for eternity. I am grateful for temples, for my family and the gifts that my Father in Heaven has given me. My favorite family pictures are taken at the temple, so you may notice that we are already there in virtual reality. 

 

I want to thank my daughter Caroline for providing the beautiful vocals, Nik Day for the inspiring music and lyrics, and my Heavenly Father for a family that Never Ends!
