Temple Blessings

Elder Robert D. Hales taught that “the opportunity to enter the temple and to take upon ourselves the sacred covenants therein is one of the greatest blessings available to us in mortality.” These sacred and essential ordinances tie us to our families and prepare us to return to our Heavenly Father.

“The primary purpose of the temple is to provide the ordinances necessary for our exaltation in the celestial kingdom.”

—Elder Robert D. Hales
