Mormon Temples

This is a 30 minute landscape study I did of a view in Palmyra, New York.  What we are looking at here is a field that was used for farming by the Smith family back in the early 1800’s.  Across the field and built on the original property the Smith family owned is the Palmyra Temple.  This most beautiful structure was dedicated in 2000 as a house of the Lord. Only people who have truly shown their devotion to God can enter through those doors, but the feeling of peace and spirituality that comes to its visitors as they do so is undeniable.  And what’s more – all 139 Mormon temples throughout the world have the same feeling of love and reverence inside.  I love the temple and know it really is a sacred place.  I go as often as I can to feel that unquestionable feeling of joy inside. To learn more about temples and why we build them you can watch a quick 3 minute video right here:


About sisterweber

I am currently a Mormon missionary serving in western New York for The Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints! Let me tell you how strange I am currently - I don't watch tv or any form of entertainment; I left behind my family, home, school, and art I love so so much; I'm working 6 days a week, 14 hours a day to bring people unto Christ; I'm not getting paid (I'm actually paying); and I CHOSE to do it! The reason why? I know this is the most important thing I could ever do. I know that there is nothing in all the world that can bring people greater happiness than the Gospel of Jesus Christ in its fulness. This message I'm sharing with people is unique and true. God loves all of us so much that He has restored the church Jesus Christ set up onto the earth again, and all people have a right to know. Everyone has a right to be as happy as I am.
