About Product: “The temple is a holy place where revelation comes to us easily if our hearts are open to it and we are worthy of it.” —President Henry B. Eyring
The blessings of the holy temple are available to all of us but personal to each of us. One sure witness of that truth is President Henry B. Eyring, who has developed a deep and abiding love for the house of the Lord. In A Sacred Place Like This, he encourages all to be ready and worthy to enjoy increased opportunities for temple worship and the personal revelation that follows. Sharing inspiring personal stories, doctrine, and scriptural insights, President Eyring invites us to better understand the Savior, build eternal family connections, and feel more hope, joy, and optimism in our lives. His words are coupled with beautiful temple photography and powerful graphics depicting the growth of temples worldwide. President Eyring’s invitation to be a part of that work extends to each of us: “My hope for you and for all your beloved family is that you will grow in desire and determination to be worthy to go into the house of the Lord as often as your circumstances allow. He wants to welcome you there.”
