    I love the temple. It is such a peaceful place. My husband and I are fortunate enough to volunteer for a six-hour shift every Thursday. What a special place to be. It is often the highlight of our week.

    We love all the temples that dot the world as I would wish to visit each one of them and enjoy their beauty in person. But I also have understood that the purpose of the temples are not to provide just beauty but to allow me to witness the coming together of heaven and earth and partake of that event by being part of the work thaT we do in the temple right in my community.I attend the temple often as it blesses my life in a remarkable way.I can't define those blessings I feel every day but I know the source of those blessings and will for ever hold on to that. I would hope that all of Gods children will expirence the same as I have where ever they may be. This is the desire of my heart.

    It was 40 years ago last December that I met my bride to be in the Liberty Stake Center just a mile or so from what would become the site of the future Kansas City Temple. When we married in October 1972 we traveled two days to the Salt Lake Temple. The sight of this temple rising from what I remember as a farm field moves me tremendously. We now live in the St. Louis Temple District, but I know we will need to visit the new Kansas City (or as I like to refer to it, the Liberty) Temple. I hope the sight of the temple will inspire the youth as they travel to stake meetings.
