After more than three years, Morgan residents of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can now begin attending their own temple.  The Ogden Temple was closed for extensive renovation in April of 2011, and hundreds of Morgan youth celebrated the rededication of the temple at the Dee Events Center on Saturday.
More than 800 youth from Morgan County’s two stakes participated in the event either singing in the choir, dancing the hoedown or participating in various other aspects of the hour-and-a-half program.
“The Morgan and Morgan North stakes were among the leading stakes with the most youth participating,” said Brent Halls, Enterprise resident and executive secretary of the Ogden Temple Committee.  “The Morgan stakes were absolutely great in their support—from the very beginning.  Some stakes struggled to get the vision and to get their youth motivated,” but not Morgan!
The church’s prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, was on hand when the Morgan youth performed.  Elders Jeffrey R. Holland and David A. Bednar accompanied him.

It is just after Thanksgiving and many of us are sitting at home in the after turkey stupor. If you are like me you are taking shelter indoors from the cold and enjoying time with the family. I love the holidays and the traditions handed down through the years from family. It is a great time of year to do family history.
