Oquirrh Temple Open Houses Begin

We went to the neighborhood showing of the Oquirrh Mountain Temple this morning and were totally thrilled at how beautiful it is inside. It's tiny too. The rooms only accommodate about twenty-people, but there are sessions going on both sides which both end up in the same Celestial Room.

The decorating theme has alot of eternity circles in it and four-point stars in the opaque windows which catch the sun beautifully. Rich and elegant, but definitely with clean lines and lots of white and gold and open airiness.

Can't wait to get it open and functioning now.

I can definitely see why they chose that spot for the Temple and I'm so glad they did. It's on a unique promontory and you can see it from everywhere. It's always a nice reminder of who we are. It always gives me a little lift when I see it. It's so wonderful to have it in the neighborhood.
