HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"Within the sound of my voice are individuals who have received the ordinances of the temple and for various reasons have not returned to the house of the Lord in quite some time. Please repent, prepare, and do whatever needs to be done so you can again worship in the temple and more fully remember and honor your sacred covenants."
—David A. Bednar

Potato Blossom Featured in the Burley Idaho Temple Design

The design motif of the Burley Idaho Temple was discussed in a recent KMVT interview with David Wilson, director of the Church's communication council in the Twin Falls region. "This area is famous for potatoes," he said. "We have a lot potato farms so as they were looking for a logo, or a symbol to be used they picked the potato flower." The temple, which sits on a former potato farm, features depictions of small potatoes in the stained glass with both the roots and the green foliage on top.
