During the dedicatory prayer, President Monson asked God to protect the building "against the storms of nature and any destructive hand of man. May thy spirit be manifested by all who serve within" and "may all who enter here be worthy in every way."
Story Behind the Art
We had the opportunity to live close to the new Rexburg temple shortly after it was dedicated. I was even able to do the ordinance work for my sweet grandmother in this temple.
I was able to find a place right across the road with all of these beautiful flowers. As I crouched down in the foliage to get the right shot, my husband circled the area with our kids. I’m sure a couple of passersby were wondering what I was doing, but I wanted to bring some color and beauty into the shot. -Mandy Jane Williams
