This is a picture of the Dallas, Texas LDS temple. My husband and I were married here in 2005. If you're unfamiliar with LDS doctrine, let me give you and brief introduction as far as the temple is concerned. In the temple we are taught, we make covenants, and we are promised blessings. We recieve ordinances that enable us to live in the presence of God. One of those ordinances in called "sealing." That is, to seal and man and woman as husband and wife, not just for this life, but for all eternity. And then they, and children born to them can be together forever!
The Temple is a very sacred place. We don't go into detail about what goes on there because it's so special and sacred to us. There is an amazing Spirit of peace and reverance that one feels in the temple.
The home is a sacred place too, it's the only place that can remotely compare to the temple in sacredness. Thing is, we seem to forget that in our day to day lives. Home should be a place that is peaceful and makes everyone feel safe and comfortable. That's the Spirit that I want in my home.
Getting married in the Temple was the best way we could start our family. The next step is to keep trying to live worthy of all the blessings we've been promised and teaching our children to do the same.
