Temple Chest

For a year and a half I have been working on my most prized piece.  It is a chest of drawers with a temple theme.  Each drawer has a picture of an LDS temple on it that is special to our family:  Washington, D.C. where my husband and I were sealed, Boston which is our current temple, Newport Beach, Sacramento, and Mt. Timpanogos where our children were sealed, and the Manhattan temple which is housed in the same building where my husband was baptized. The lyrics to the song, "I Love to See the Temple" are on each drawer and other quotes about temples are on the sides of the chest with other designs.  On the top of the chest is a sunstone which are on the Nauvoo temple and the sentiment, "Families Can Be Together Forever" is included in the design.

It was a beautiful experience for me to work on this piece that is so personal for our family, and to think about the special covenants that were have made in those houses of the Lord.  I am very happy with the way it turned out.
