When the Lord instructed the Saints in Kirtland to build a temple, he said, “Establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God” (D&C 88:119). Michael Wilcox identifies the blessing that temple work brings to our everyday lives. He discusses the temple as a house as learning where we can understand the most powerful principles of the gospel and receive inspiration for our families and ourselves. He explains how the temple is a house of refuge where we can escape the trials and troubles of the world. He defines the phrase “house of order” and talks about how the temple as a house of glory, describing the wonderful experiences that come to those who serve there, and especially to those who labor for their kindred dead.
