While we were in Arizona we visited the site and saw the construction on the Phoenix, Arizona Temple.
This was really exciting for us to see because this Temple is literally 5 minutes from where we used to live. If we wanted to attend the Temple when we lived in Glendale, we would drive to Mesa and it was at least an hour each way. It is so awesome for this area to get a Temple. I am so excited. We will have to come back once it is completed.
