Eternal Families

"Well, this is pretty awesome. On Saturday we got to go see a family get sealed in the Sao Paulo Temple. Their names are Januario and Selma, it was a family that Elder Staley baptized when he was in Aruja, his first area. It was the first temple sealing that I have ever seen and it was well worth the three hour wait that we had to go through. We got there at the time we were told it would start, but someone had said the wrong time so we were two hours early, so we went to McDonalds and chilled for a little while. When we got back to the Temple, we waited in a reception room and then decided to walk around in the Temple a little bit. The Baptismal Font was awesome. The Sealing room was awesome. It was so beautiful, I really can't wait to be able to go there all the time. The sealing was amazing, and the happy couple is now together for time and all eternity. Wouldn't you all like to have that blessing as well?"

"I know that families can be together forever. It is really strange that the Lord would give us families in the first place if He would just take them away when life ends. That doesn't make any sense and that's why it's not true. Families are forever."

Temple Ordinances Seal Families Together Forever

All temple ordinances are performed by the power of the priesthood. Through this power, ordinances performed on earth are sealed, or bound, in heaven. The Savior taught his Apostles, "Whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven" (Matthew 16:19; see also D&C 132:7).

Only in the temple can we be sealed together forever as families. Marriage in the temple joins a man and woman as husband and wife eternally if they honor their covenants. Baptism and all other ordinances prepare us for this sacred event.

When a man and woman are married in the temple, their children also become part of their eternal family. Couples who have been married civilly can receive these blessings by preparing themselves and their children to go to the temple and be sealed to each other.
