Idaho Falls Temple Rededication

Whenever the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints builds a temple, there is a period of a few weeks when the public can tour the building during an open house.  Right before the dedication (when only members of the church with a current temple reccommend can go inside the temple) there is a cultural celebration.  Mainly a brief history of the town in which the temple is built.  The youth of the church (ages 12-18) were invited to be a part of the celebration.

Because I am of age to have a child in that age range, this celebration hit a little closer to home for me.  Gimme was able to participate.  There were lots of practices, lots of time, and lots of effort put into this event, and I think it came together perfect as it can be with 12,000 youth.

Most importantly, I think Gimme came away from the experience with closer association to the temple.  I think she feels like the Idaho Falls temple is "her" temple.  I'm so excited to go there with her.  It was redicated today by President Henry B. Eyring.

Luckily, I had an "in" with security at the dress rehearsal.  "S-2" was able to send a few pictures while on duty.  :)
