How Could My Temple Experience Be Any Better?

It can be difficult to imagine something as significant as temple worship being any more meaningful than it already is. But that is the promise to those who search out information on their own ancestors and receive the saving ordinances of the temple on their behalf.

“When you’re already going to the temple, … you are already receiving blessings,” says Julene Davidson, a family history consultant in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, USA. “So sometimes it’s hard to see how it can be so much better.”

Searching out our deceased family members and receiving the ordinances of salvation on their behalf is one way the Lord allows us to participate in His work, making us like Him, saviors on mount Zion and the saviors of men (see Obadiah 1:21 and D&C 103:9–10).
