I recently posted how incredibly simple it is to find ancestors to bring with you to the temple. (2 eyes + 1 hour = eternal joy!).
ANYONE CAN DO IT!
A 5-year-old can do it.
If you have 2 eyes and can recognize the color green – you can take an ancestor to the temple with no further effort.
The steps, as I outlined before, are as follows:
- Log into FamilySearch.org. and view your family tree.
- Look for little green arrows pointing to the temple, above people’s names. Scroll up,down, sideways, back and all around your family tree and YOU WILL FIND A GREEN ARROW eventually! (I have NEVER not found one, and have done this dozens and dozens of times.)
- Click on them to reserve their temple work – or share them with other temple patrons.
Last week I did this again. (It’s too easy not to.) I thought I had finally gone through EVERYONE in our family tree and had clicked on ALL the green arrows.
This morning, I decided to give it just one more once over – just to make sure I didn’t miss anyone.
It turns out……I missed 55 people….SO FAR! My hand began to ache from using the mouse, so I wrote down where I left off and will return again! And again! And again!
MANY of those 55 people needed to be SEALED to their sweet children, or parents, or loving companions. I cannot wait to take their names with me when I go to the temple. (Many I released to the temple so they could be done right away, without having to wait for me.)
When I took my ancestors to the temple this last time, the sealer looked carefully at them and said, “Do you know how long they have been waiting to be sealed? Do you know that the rest of their work was done many decades ago, but somehow no one performed their sealings! Thank you for finding them and finishing this important work!”
I wish I could emphasize to you how simple this eternal work is!
- Just go to the family tree that already exists on Family Search.
- Just scroll around until you find a GREEN ARROW! And you WILL find one! (Or 55!)
- Click to reserve their ordinances or share them with the temple.
