“It all starts with love,” Elder Russell M. Nelson says in this video about the service families perform in the temple for their own ancestors.
Kim and Wynette Christensen found peace serving in the temple after their son died in a tragic car accident. “The peace and the healing began immediately,” said Kim. “It’s been a great reminder of our purpose as a family as we have gone to the temple.”
Now doing family history and temple work has greater meaning for the Christensens. “The promises of the temple have so much more meaning when you consider who you’re doing the work for,” Kim says.
“We hope that all the people in the Church will be able to have that sublime experience of doing temple ordinance work for their own people,” says Elder Nelson.
