I have read for several months negative responses to the Church of Jesus of Latter-day Saints temple coming to Erda. While I respect that not all may feel the same and I support the right that everyone has to speak their mind, I am increasingly concerned that an impression may be growing that people in Erda are not excited about the temple. My husband, daughter and I are thrilled. My parents that live in Tooele and worked in the Salt Lake temple for years are so happy — their weekly temple days will be so much easier. Somewhere on the other side, I am sure my Grandpa and Grandma Steadman are jumping for joy that this great building will be such a blessing to so many of their posterity and ancestors. Everyone has a right to their opinion but ‘as for me and my house’ we look forward to a temple in our midst. We are so blessed!
