Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things (D&C 59:7).

Heavenly Father has given us many temple blessings for which we should be grateful. Several primary children have made comments about the temple blessings that they feel especially thankful for:

“I am thankful for the temple because when a mommy and daddy get married in the temple, they’re still married after they die.” (Stephanie, age 6)

“I’m thankful we can go to the temple and learn more about Heavenly Father, like how we came to earth and got our bodies and how the earth became the earth. We can learn what is right and how to obey Heavenly Father better.” (Anson, age 11)

“You go to the temple to get power to do things that are right.” (Jean, age 9)

“I think it’s a blessing to go to a holy place. You are happy when you are in the temple.” (David, age 9)

“We go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. I am thankful for that because if some of our ancestors are not members of the Church, we can baptize them so that they can become members if they want to.” (Martha, age 11)

“I am thankful we can go to the temple and bless the people who died.” (Glendon, age 9)

“I’m thankful families can all be together—like grandmas and grandpas, moms and dads, and us.” (Susan, age 6)
