The Building of our Brigham City Temple

by Elizabeth Mueller

"I am home," President Boyd K. Packer said at the Ground Breaking Ceremony, Brigham City's Temple site.

There were many who were present July 31, 2010 at 9 am downtown, Brigham City.

What a blessing it is to have the Lord's very own temple within the boundaries of the city we live in!

I remember snuggling in, ready to fill my spirit with divine insight. It was the 179th Semiannual General Conference when President Thomas S. Monson announced the building of the Brigham City Temple.

My eyes filled with tears and I was left speechless. What a precious and exciting moment it was for me.

I am so very grateful that the Lord has chosen our humble, little city for His great work. I am especially grateful that my daughter's heart was so touched, that she has a burning desire to marry there when her time is right.

What a special blessing this has been for everyone of us!

I feel it exciting and want to share how the landscape changes. Click here for official Church updates!

Here is a bit of statistics on the temple:

Location: 250 South Main Street, Brigham City, Utah, United States.
Site: 3.14 acres.
Total Floor Area: 36,000 square feet.

This is an exciting time and feel it very important to track our thoughts and feelings about this significant event. Here is a start for journal sheets that you can work on with your family that I've gathered from a friend whose primary has worked to compile.

My heart is full.

I will see what I can do to update my sweet sisters here at Mormon Mommy Writers as the temple progresses in its construction stages.

"When you come to the temple you will love your family with a deeper love than you have ever felt before. The temple is about families."
—Richard H. Winkel
