A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, & respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for Eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm & wind, sunlight & shadows, joy & sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of Heaven on Earth. ~ President Thomas S Monson
Standing on (Shelli's Ancestor's) Bigler Home-Land (property) in Nauvoo. To the right of this pic they had a beautiful view of the Mississippi River & behind us they saw the Temple 24/7 from their home ... so close!
The kids pretending they were the house! Now the property is a Stake Center in walking distance to the Temple.
