Manti Temple

Thursday night, my sister-in-law, Becky, hosted a Cookie Lee party. She and her cousin Janie had made plans to take a trip to Manti to go to the temple there the following Saturday and Becky invited me. I was so excited to go because I had never been there before....not even for the pageant. We went with Janie, her Dad, Jack, and step mom, Cindy and my mom. There is never a dull moment in the Jensen family, I've decided. Jack and Cindy were so nice and Janie is so fun! She's obsessed with taking pictures, so hopefully she doesn't care I stole these from her! It was such a fun trip. The temple is amazing. I'm so glad I got to go! I couldn't believe some of the craftsmanship. It is amazing to stop and think about how much work had to go into it before the modern conveniences we have now. I was most impressed by an article of temple clothing that they had hanging in a shadow box right after you enter. It was an original version from the 1800s. It was such a neat experience!


  1. I'm so excited to go there even more now!

  2. I really like that temple too! It is amazing when you stop to think that something so beautiful and massive like the older temples were built without the modern tools that we have now!
