Temple service brings joy

Speaking during the October 1986 general conference, Elder Franklin D. Richards of the Seventy said: "I have witnessed the joy and satisfaction that come to those who serve in the temple.

"I recall on one occasion a sister coming through the temple door, her face bright with anticipation and her step quickened. She was a temple worker who had been back home for a visit. She grasped my hand and said, 'It's so good to be back. I love my service in the temple, and know I cannot be happy, really happy, away from it. It brings me a joy and satisfaction that is found in no other place. I feel a sense of accomplishment in doing something of eternal value. It's a little like the work of the Savior, who did for mankind what they could not do for themselves. This work brings peace to my soul — yes, the peace that passeth understanding.' "
