Then I visited the Oquirrh Mountain and Jordan River Temples! They were about 5 minutes apart but really different. They both gave a really cool spirit and a sense of sanctuary. I felt completely happy and at peace.
Last but certainly not least is the Salt Lake City Temple! WOW! Okay I always thought that people made such a huge deal about it, but when you see the specific workmanship put into each doorknob, or chandelier, it brings you back to the sacrifices that people made to make that beautiful temple! Also I got to go through it with one of my closest friends, Rachel. It was truly breathtaking and left me with a spiritual high all day.

This temple had such a beautiful spirit, mostly because of it's location. Minutes away from the sacred grove, the inside had detailed stain glass windows of trees. The coolest part was that in the font, when I looked up there was a stain glass window above the font, and it looks as if Joseph Smith was looking to heaven from the sacred grove; with overlapping tree branches. It was such a beautiful experience. Also the temple president was the sweetest old man, and as we were leaving he called to me and asked me to wait for a moment. He brought me the new picture of their temple, and remarked about how the clear blue sky reminded him of me. "A sky for a Skye.", he said.
Here is a link to the Temple information, truly a beautiful story! http://www.ldschurchtemples.com/palmyra/

This temple was BY FAR my favorite. It is so beautiful and picturesque. We went in, and the spirit was just crazy. The sun was shining all over the stain glass. The people in the temple were soo sweet, and the men who were confirming me really had the proper authority. It was so inspiring and a light of my day. This temple was bigger, but as each temple, has it's own unique spirit and light. The man that baptized me was from Delaware, and was so so strong in the gospel. Every temple strengthens my testimony more and more.
