My History: The Atlanta Georgia Temple

I served a mission in Southern Georgia but my first visit to the Atlanta Georgia Temple was 14 years later. I visited with my wife and Daughter on a massive month and a half road trip. We visited Family and 31 temples over a month and a half.

The Atlanta Temple has been expanded 2 times since it’s dedication. The first was when I was on my way home from my Mission. The temple was closed when I went to the airport. The Second was just before our 2011 road trip. We were pretty pleased to be able to add it to our itinerary.

This is one I would love to visit again, maybe in the fall when leaves are changing. Everything is so Humid in the summer I suppose there are some awesome colors in the fall.

An odd side note: I read a comment in a forum once where someone used the multiple remodels of the Atlanta temple as proof the Mormon church was not true. Because “the one true church would build it right the first time.” Of course the one true church would never have to update heating and cooling systems, power systems, paint, carpet, worn out furniture, or maybe expand due to increased church growth. Ever.

Having served my mission in Georgia, I have wanted to See the Atlanta Georgia Temple since 1995. It was the habit in our mission that Missionaries were allowed to go with the President and his Wife their last day in the Mission. The Temple was undergoing a small renovation when I left so that would not have been at all possible. The temple had been undergoing another (this time massive) renovation the year we planned this trip. The rededication took place 3 weeks before we started our trip. It was a pleasant surprise to be able to add this to the trip. Beautiful Day for it too.

This was a quick trip and was more about getting photos of the Kids in front of the temple. When we got there, the temple was closed for cleaning, and there was a large dumpster in front of the temple full of empty boxes and furnace filters.

I only got a couple of images I am willing to share with the public. You can find those below.
