Young Couple Going to the Temple
Gospel Art Picture Kit
Heavenly Father’s divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to continue beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally. Inside these holy temples, worthy couples can be united, or sealed, in the everlasting covenant of marriage. The children of this union are joined to their parents by the power and authority of God. Families who live worthy of these temple covenants can be together throughout all eternity. (See D&C 132:7.)
Marriage is sacred and ordained of God. The family unit is central to Heavenly Father’s great plan of happiness. As we accept the covenants and blessings of eternal marriage and live the gospel of Jesus Christ, we can progress to the highest exaltation in the celestial kingdom (see D&C 132:19–20).
Heavenly Father wants families to be together forever. In holy temples a worthy man and woman are married for time and eternity. They are promised that if they live God’s commandments, they and their children can be sealed together as a family forever.
