Minecraft Temples

Do you and/or your kids Build Holy Places in Minecraft?
What a great idea! I know Legolas can waste hours on end on Minecraft if we let him.  So we might as well help him do something worthwhile while he's on there!th
This one is built by our cousin, Mr Yellow Hands.  He created our new logo up in the corner.  Yep, he's a pretty talented artist that knows his way around a computer!! 
It looks like the Draper Temple to me.
Nauvoo Temple
This one is from our dear friend, Devanie!
Great job!

Oquirrh Mountain Temple

We have had quite a few ask us where we have disappeared to, well:
1. This year's Sunday schedule makes our temple building much more difficult!
We love having afternoon church, but we don't get around to things like Building with LEGOs as often, or for as long.
2. We started building the San Diego Temple and got stuck with the spires. Do you know how many spires are on that temple?  There are two large ones, 8 medium, then like 16 small ones! Not that we didn't realize that before building! .
We love the mini version that Andrew Johnson has on his Mocpage
We thought we'd make it normal size and simplify it, but we still didn't make it work.  YET
 So after more than a month, we postponed that build and moved onto the
Oquirrh Mountain Temple.
 Beautiful Temple, and ONE spire:)

Sr Primary boys' temple

We had the oldest boys from our primary over a few months ago to practice a song for the Primary Program.
They were getting a little restless and I told them they could build a LEGO temple if they sang it their very best 2 more times.
Wow, why didn't I think of that earlier?  Their voices really told me that the "Priesthood is Restored"

I took a photo after a few of them had to leave, but here is what they ended up with!

Mexico City

Bob the Builder's rendition of the Mexico City Temple.
 This was made with our current Lego kit, with a green base plate and 24 2x2x2 slant bricks added.
Built by a 9 year old in about 90 minutes!  Yes, he's experienced (most 9 year old boys are) and we're a little biased! Way to go Bob!

Lego Nativity

If you search "Lego Nativity" on Pinterest there are some great ideas!
We found the link to these instructions and decided to make this HOLY scene today.
It was hard to find all the pieces they used, but we improvised and loved the drawings they made!
We usually build temples for this blog. The temple has NO meaning without the miraculous birth, life, death, and resurrection of our Savior, the Son of God, Jesus Christ!
In fact, when we enter the temple, we learn of Him and how much He and God the Father love us.
We don't share that enough here on our little spot in cyberspace.
So we want to make it clear to all who happen upon our blog,
We believe in Jesus Christ.  He is our Redeemer and the only way toward heaven!
We celebrate his birth this season and wish you all a

Hamilton, New Zealand

 Studette built the Hamilton, New Zealand temple with our new LEGO temple kit.
To find out which pieces are in that set, see our instructions tab or click here.
It only took her about an hour.
I really like the detail sticker she put on the steeple with a lable maker.  Inventive.
