Payson, Utah, USA Temple


Settled in 1850 by Latter-day Saints, Payson, Utah, is filled with pioneer spirit and heritage that is reflected in the temple dedicated on June 7, 2015. The concrete panels on the exterior of the temple depict classical quilting motifs. The area is known for its apple orchards and wheat crops, both are visible throughout the temple. The apple blossoms teach the patrons about growing spiritually. In the baptistry, apple blossoms are incorporated into the stained-glass windows. As you advance from floor to higher floor the apple blossoms open more and more until you reach the top floor where they are in full bloom. The temple has more art glass than any other temple* with six hundred exterior windows and six hundred interior windows. Many of the paintings and décor within the temple were produced by local artists. Every piece has its own story. Local lace maker Jordan Anderson shares what she learned as she crafted altar cloths for the temple. “Although I was provided a pattern, there were times I thought I knew better than the pattern… but I didn’t. It wasn’t until I humbled myself enough to really study the instructions that I gained an understanding of how to be successful with each motif. I had a moment of inspiration and felt the Spirit remind me that the scriptures and the words of the prophets are the pattern for our lives. Disregarding this pattern only brings frustration. Even more touching, was how the experience helped my testimony of the Atonement grow. I made many, many mistakes in the process of completing the altar cloth. With every mistake I ripped out the mistake and changed my stitches to fix the problem. Once the cloth was completed, there was no evidence that mistakes were made and the result was a complete and flawless whole. The Savior does the same for us when we turn our mistakes over to Him for healing and grace.”** Let this temple inspire you to follow the prophets and seek to apply the Atonement of Jesus Christ more fully into your life.

How Temple Coins are Made

Dave started creating jewelry using metals in 1992, ten years later he had worked with nearly every metal in the jewelry industry! Moving to Thailand, he spent the next nine years perfecting his skills with various metals, 3D models and 3D printers. He dreamed of producing something that would bring delight to purchasers and carry with it positive feelings that would touch the souls of those who owned them. In 2014 he was able to realize his dream. Returning to the US, he uses Lost-wax casting to create a metal master from brass alloy for each temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, depicting, in the highest degree of definition possible, a coin with a 3D image of a temple. The reverse of each coin is cast with the words “Stand ye in holy places.”
