Jordan River Temple

This is a picture of the Jordan River Temple spire and Angle Moroni. Isn't it beautiful?

I have been helping people in my ward complete their family temple work. The last batch of family names given to me needed everything from baptism on up. I had Chris and Ali do the baptisms for me a couple of Wednesdays ago.

The next day I headed back to the Jordan River Temple to start what I needed to do. I guess I went during the busiest part of the day. They were leary to let me do the work I wanted to do on all 15 names. I held firm and told them I would really like to do them all at once. They were very kind and let me do it.
That evening, I told Chris they weren't too happy I wanted to do so much at one time. He was like, "Tell me about it." He hadn't told me that he had had a difficult time getting all 15 names done the night before, so that was news to me. He told me they were only going to let them do 5 baptisms. So, he asked them if they could do more. They said he could do five more. Then, he pulled out the big guns and told them, "You don't understand. My wife will kill me if I don't come home with all fifteen done."
No wonder he hadn't told me he had a problem getting them all done. He had used me as a threat! I'm not THAT scary, am I???
