It’s been a while since I’ve posted picture on LDS temples.
This is the Las Vegas Nevada Temple. We stopped here on the way to San Diego back in October.
My husband is really good at going to the temple every week. I’ve been trying to go every other week but it is really a lot harder to go to the temple with little kids. It has worked out though for the most part. I get the the temple about twice a month. Even though I don’t always get to go with Dallin to the temple, the sisters in our ward are always arranging trips together to the temple. It’s nice to get away to have some “girls time” too. This allows me to be able to get to know different sisters in our ward better by going to the temple with them.
I also notice that even though I can’t go to the temple as often, there is still an increased measure of the Spirit at home. Why? I think it’s because little babies bring with them a special spirit. Also, I think it’s because my husband has been so faithful in attending the temple. I also believe that new moms can be blessed to have the “spirit of the temple” at home through prayer, scripture study, and uplifting music.
I heard once that a mom would take 2 hours of her week to have “temple time” even though she couldn’t physically get the the temple because of distance and time. During that time she would study about the temple.
How do you find time to go to the temple? (Especially if you have little kids…)
So far on our virtual temple tour we have been to these temples:
- Rexburg Idaho Temple
- St. George Utah Temple
- La Jolla San Diego California Temple
- Preston England Temple
- Salt Lake Temple
I have more temple pictures. It’ll probably take the rest of the year to edit them!
By the way! I finally joined Instagram. You can follow me here.

Random Photography Ramble: Why do I like to do this star burst effect? Because it was about noon day when we arrived at the temple and there was no clouds in the sky. I usually like to take pictures during sunrise or sunset with clouds to help defuse the light. Lunch time really isn’t the best time for lighting so I think the light “burst” adds to the picture instead of just having a plan blue sky. You can learn how to do the star effect here.
