Ogden Temple to Undergo Renovation
The nearly 40-year-old Ogden Utah Temple will undergo a major 18- to 24-month renovation. The core design of the temple interior will remain the same, but the exterior will feature a new design, with new stone and glass. The building will be remodeled to meet seismic requirements, feature the latest technology, and include more energy-efficient equipment. An underground parking structure will also be added.
Honor Bee Charm Created
In conjunction with several changes to the Personal Progress program, an Honor Bee charm is now available to young women who go beyond the regular requirements. To receive the charm, a young woman may reread the Book of Mormon and complete 40 additional hours of service after receiving her Young Womanhood Recognition medallion. Part of this service must include helping another young woman complete her Personal Progress goals. This award is a small charm that is worn on the same necklace with the medallion.
Exhibit Features Latin American Saints
The Church History Museum recently opened a new bilingual exhibit called “Mi Vida, Mi Historia: Stories of Faith and Inspiration from Latin American Saints,” which highlights spiritual experiences from the lives of 24 members. Their photos are hung throughout the exhibit, and interactive audiovisual kiosks allow visitors further insight into participants’ lives. The exhibit is available online in Spanish and English at lds.org/museum. Click on Exhibits and Galleries, then on Current Exhibits.
