Elder and Sister Holland’s connection to St. George

Born just 35 miles apart in southern Utah, Elder and Sister Holland were high school sweethearts and married in the historic St. George Temple.

From the majestic trees of Pine Valley Mountain to the Narrows of Zion National Park, “this little corner of heaven on earth was the world of our childhood,” said Elder Holland of St. George, during RootsTech Family Discovery Day in February 2021.

Sister Holland spent her youth in Enterprise, Utah, before moving to St. George during her high school years.

Returning to his red-soil roots at the November 2020 groundbreaking for the Red Cliffs Utah Temple, Elder Holland’s thoughts turned to the future temple — the Church’s second in St. George — and of “coming home” to the House of the Lord.

“As we talk about home, safety, peace and people who love you, that is a description of the temple — it is the safest, the most welcoming and reassuring place in the world,” he said.
