Wow- there has been so much going on here at Serenity.  I'm excited to announce that I am currently editing the St. George, Manti, Vernal, and Provo temples!! I have the Twin Falls, ID temple completed and am still trying to get the right look for my Boise temple.

The push has been for the BYU-Idaho project that will be completed by the end of this month.  They are re-designing all the dorms on campus and Serenity temples will be hanging in each room and lobby! So exciting!  So to celebrate, I am hosting a giveaway.  One winner will receive a...


To Enter:  Leave a comment on THIS post telling me which temple you would choose and if you would keep if for yourself or give it away.  Don't forget to leave a way for me to contact you as well:)

The Bradfields  – (August 11, 2011 at 8:27 PM)  

I would have to choose either the Rexburg temple or the long Idaho Falls one :) I am torn as we got married in the Idaho Falls Temple but I'm from Rexburg and lived very close to the temple and have come to love that one as well.. Crossing my fingers :) Thanks for the giveaway!! I would probably give my parents the Rexburg one though since they are temple workers there... and its like their 45th wedding anniversary in 2 weeks!

The Bradfields  – (August 11, 2011 at 8:28 PM)  

One of my absolute favorite temples in the world has to be HONG KONG! It really is amazing as it is stuck between so many buildings and so many people travel so far to visit it and it really is just beautiful... more so in person! You really should come to HK with me Christina :)

Missy  – (August 11, 2011 at 8:31 PM)  

I would choose the Washington, DC temple, because I grew up with it. But, of the ones you have so far I think I'd go with the IF temple as a reminder of one of the favorite places we ever lived!!
I think you know how to contact me! :O)

Missy  – (August 11, 2011 at 8:34 PM)  

I just would like to add that my favorite temple in the WORLD is the Mesa temple because I got married there! (and I get to go there tomorrow night! ~ so excited)


Katie  – (August 11, 2011 at 8:46 PM)  

If I won, I would choose the Idaho Falls temple. I have the generic one from the distribution center hanging in my house and would like a more 'updated' one. Amazing work Christina!!

Jessica  – (August 11, 2011 at 9:02 PM)  

If I won, I would choose the Vernal Temple and give to my husband, because that is where he grew up.
Jessica Jacobsen- your neighbor

Michelle  – (August 11, 2011 at 10:56 PM)  

If I won I would choose the San Diego temple because I received my endowments there and was sealed to my hubby there. So many great moments in my life have been in that temple. Thanks for doing a giveaway! :)

Michelle  – (August 11, 2011 at 10:58 PM)  

Also, my favorite temple ever is the Lai'e Hawaii temple, besides the San Diego temple. The Lai'e temple is just beautiful - the grounds, the inside, everything. I saw my best friend sealed there as well, so it has sentimental meaning. :) -

CharityMay  – (August 11, 2011 at 11:00 PM)  

i would choose to keep an idaho falls temple print. my mother in law has one in her home and it is where my husband's family was sealed after they joined the church. i like the print that was posted on october 13th, there are a few you have on here, all gorgeous!

CharityMay  – (August 11, 2011 at 11:03 PM)  

my favorite temple is the seattle temple, because that is where i was sealed to my sweetheart. i got to take a grounds tour when i was in my singles ward there, and learn about the symbolism of the architecture. it was just amazing! i always think how the shafts of wheat are symbolized on the front of the building to remind us that Christ is the bread of life!

GretylAnn  – (August 12, 2011 at 6:52 AM)  

So cool Christina! I didn't even realize you were doing this. Beautiful work. I would choose the Logan temple, because my son Logan was just telling me that it is his favorite temple (go figure) and it was also the temple most of my parents, grandparents, and ancestors were married in. I was just thinking that I really should get a Logan temple picture the other day.

Danny & Crystal  – (August 12, 2011 at 7:07 AM)  

WOW Christina! Those all look AMAZING! You are so talented! If I won, I would definitely choose Idaho Falls since that's where we were married & I don't even have a picture of the Idaho Falls temple hanging up & I've been meaning to for years, so I would love to win this!

Jorgensen family  – (August 12, 2011 at 7:52 AM)  

I just found out about your site and love it! I realized I don't even have a picture of the temple hanging in my home and would definitely choose the IF temple since that was where I got married. Way to go on putting together these amazing pictures!

Lara  – (August 12, 2011 at 8:13 AM)  

That's a hard choice. I would go with either the IF or the Logan. We were married in the IF temple but I have a lot of love for the Logan temple and a lot of history there. I would probably keep it for myself :)They are all beautiful!

Lara  – (August 12, 2011 at 8:16 AM)  

Also I just have to say my favorite temple in the world is Salt Lake. I love the history and story behind it.

Camille  – (August 12, 2011 at 8:33 AM)  

I would choose the Idaho Falls Temple. I would really like to keep it for my family because only because we don't have a picture of a temple yet in our home and we LOVE to see the Temple!! :-) my email is :

Valerie  – (August 12, 2011 at 10:02 AM)  

I would choose the Idaho Falls Temple with the falls in the picture. I think it would make a great Christmas gift, but it would be hard to give it away!! Thanks!

Valerie  – (August 12, 2011 at 10:03 AM)  

My absolute favorite temple would probably have to be the Idaho Falls temple. Just because that is where I grew up and where I was married. It has a lot of memories for me. Thanks!

Rebecca  – (August 12, 2011 at 10:12 AM)  

I would choose the Idaho Falls temple (but only because you don't have Las Vegas!). It's where we were married. Beautiful pictures.

Janet  – (August 12, 2011 at 10:53 AM)  

What a generous giveaway! You're prints are beautiful. I would choose the Idaho Falls Temple where I was married. Thanks so much. :)

Holly  – (August 12, 2011 at 11:15 AM)  

I would LOVE the Idaho Falls Temple- I would be giving it away because my mom has been dying for one of these pics and her birthday is right around the corner. :) And then I'd probably be jealous that she had one and I didn't. ha!

Tyson and Christi Smith  – (August 12, 2011 at 11:20 AM)  

I would either pick the Idaho falls temple for a gift, or I might be stingy and choose the salt lake city temple cause I thing it is absolutly beautiful! Or maybe the Rexburg the temple cause your picture is just amazing!

Tish Poulson  – (August 12, 2011 at 3:43 PM)  

Christina, your prints are AWESOME!!! You have got quite a job ahead of you. You have almost 150 temples to visit and take pictures of. It's going to keep you busy for quite some time. If you need an escort I'd be glad to volunteer. I have this goal to visit all the temples in the world. I have about 120 more to go. I can be your 'camera caddy'. If I were to win I would either choose the Mt. Timpanogas and give to my sister, or the Salt Lake and give to Nicol, or Manti and give to my mother or the Idaho Falls (the one showing the river)and give to myself, or the Rexberg one just because it is absolutly gorgeous with the sun coming out through the clouds. (I don't know who I would give it to). Probably keep it.

Rachel  – (August 12, 2011 at 5:10 PM)  

I love them all!! But I would probably choose the Idaho Falls because that is where I got married. I would probably keep it because I would love to have one of my own, but I might give it to my parents if they are nice to me :)
PS that is exciting about your pictures being in the new building at byu-i. You are so talented and awesome.

Rachlen  – (August 12, 2011 at 5:15 PM)  

oops,it was accidentally on my new work blog and it automatically put it in. So, just in case I win is Rachel Beebe :)

Angie & Neal  – (August 12, 2011 at 5:32 PM)  

I'd like the Idaho Falls temple and I'd be giving it to my mom who's been wanting one forever! Thanks for a wonderful give away! Angie(dot)guymon(at)gmail(dot)com

Tricia  – (August 14, 2011 at 6:15 AM)  

I would pick the Idaho Falls Temple. They are all AWESOME! I got married in the San Diego Temple, and it's gorgeous. Consider doing that it would make a fun trip :)!

Christine  – (August 14, 2011 at 12:28 PM)  

Love your pictures! It would be hard to choose a favorite. Any would look wonderful on my wall!

Krystal Keck  – (August 14, 2011 at 4:07 PM)  

I would choose the Idaho Falls Temple and would give it to my mom for her birthday that is coming up! : )

A  – (August 14, 2011 at 6:02 PM)  

I would chose the Idaho Falls temple because that is my temple. I would give it away to my sisterin law because she loves my IF picture or I would give her my "old" one and keep the new one. Love them all. You know how to reach me AH

Seek Happiness  – (August 14, 2011 at 7:25 PM)  

I would choose the Idaho Falls Temple because everyone in my family has been sealed there :) I would give the picture to my mother for her 50th birthday because she would love it! Thanks so much for this fun opportunity!

Andrea  – (August 15, 2011 at 7:39 AM)  

So hard to choose! I think I would choose St. George and gift it. So many people I know have been married there lately!

Chiemi  – (August 15, 2011 at 7:43 AM)  

I would choose the St. George Temple and probably keep it. Kind of selfish of me, but it would be so cool to have that in my home!

Mrs. Walker  – (August 15, 2011 at 8:13 AM)  

Love it! I would choose the SLC temple, because that's where my husband and I were sealed. We live outside of Utah now and don't get to see it very often.

Amy  – (August 15, 2011 at 8:40 AM)  

I would pick the Mesa temple b/c that is the one we were sealed in!

Tennille  – (August 15, 2011 at 9:08 AM)  

I would either choose Boise and keep it (hubby served his mission there) or Salt Lake and gift it (my in laws got married there)

manda carol  – (August 15, 2011 at 9:40 AM)  

I would love to gift these because they're so beautiful. However, I'd probably be selfish and get the Boise temple. That was the temple that we were sealed in and I feel like it's "my" temple. It's such a beautiful temple and your print is amazing! manda (dot) rosen (at) gmail (dot) com.

kristin  – (August 15, 2011 at 9:49 AM)  

I would love a Logan one (the horizontal one). We met in Logan and lived there for the first 5 years of being married.

It would definitely be hung in our bedroom, reminding us of those first years!

thanks! @

Ivy Alleman  – (August 15, 2011 at 10:21 AM)  

What an amazing giveaway! My husband is getting baptized this saturday and we are SO excited to prepare to get sealed in the temple. We would LOVE a pic of the manti temple to bring into our little home to remind us of what our goal is.

Neal  – (August 15, 2011 at 11:43 AM)  

What a great give away! If I won I'd want the Idaho falls temple that's where we were married.


Unknown  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:25 PM)  

I would love to win the Idaho Falls Temple portrait! It would be so great to hang up in our house so everyone could see where me and my sweetheart were sealed and for our future children could see it as well! Contact me @
thank you these are so beautiful!

Christina  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:32 PM)  

Mandi Cook (comments wouldn't work).

Christina  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:33 PM)  

Jared N McKenzie- "I would love to win a picture of the temple. My husband is taking the missionary discussions right now & it would be a pretty good Birthday present on the 26th :) Your work is beautiful."

Christina  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:34 PM)  

Jared N McKenzie- second entry:)

Just US  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:34 PM)  

Would love to see the Seattle Temple picture!!! Love your work

Dustin Humpherys

Just US  – (August 15, 2011 at 12:36 PM)  

PS I am not sure if I would give it away or keep it. The picture I would select would be the IF temple.

Wendy  – (August 15, 2011 at 1:02 PM)  

I absolutely love your work and I'm so glad I have recently found your site. I would choose the Rexburg temple since my husband and I met while at school in Rexburg. I would most likely keep it for our family and for our children to see the beautiful temple on the wall. I love the quote by Spencer W. Kimball on your blog heading.

Christina  – (August 15, 2011 at 1:09 PM)  

Emily Cooper: "My favorite temple is the Idaho Falls temple. Can't beat the one you grow up with!:)"

Shelly  – (August 15, 2011 at 1:14 PM)  

I would love a Mesa Temple one! I grew up right near it and got married there too!

Shelly  – (August 15, 2011 at 1:16 PM)  

I liked you on Facebook and have to add that I think the Mesa Temple is also my favorite temple in the whole world. I love going there for the Easter Pageant and for the Christmas Lights!

Leslie  – (August 15, 2011 at 1:16 PM)  

I would choose the Mt. Timp temple. I would definitely keep it. We adopted a second little girl 4 months ago and we are being sealed there in October. My first daughter was also sealed to us in this temple so it means a lot to us as a family. I've been saving up for a few years now for a temple picture for our house but something always keeps coming up! This picture would be amazing to have hanging in my house!
my email is jeremylesliecasper (at)gmail(dot)com

Little Farmer Family  – (August 15, 2011 at 2:50 PM)  

I would LOVE one of these!!! I have the perfect empty spot on my wall for it too!!! These are absolutely beautiful!!! I am a bit partial to the Idaho Falls and San Diego one though!!! :)

Katie  – (August 15, 2011 at 3:48 PM)  

My favorite temple in the whole world would have to be the Salt Lake temple. So many amazing memories there and it is SO beautiful when you think about when it was built!

Brad  – (August 15, 2011 at 6:34 PM)  

I would choose the Rexburg temple. My wife and I met up at BYU-Idaho and were there during the time of the groundbreaking and during most of the construction. We had moved away by the time it was completed but we have talked and planned about the day that we could go back to Rexburg and see the finished temple. I would hang that in our home to help us remember the early days of our courtship and the sacredness of family.

Lai Family  – (August 15, 2011 at 7:10 PM)  

we were married in the Taiwan Taipei temple, so we love that temple. We live in the Oklahoma Temple district and love that one as well. And who doesn't love the classic SLC temple?

Christina  – (August 15, 2011 at 8:39 PM)  

Adrianne: "I would love the Idaho Falls one and would totally keep it because I am selfish like that! ha!"

Wendy  – (August 16, 2011 at 6:28 AM)  

I just saw I could leave another comment for liking on FB. I would choose the Rexburg picture since my husband and I met there. We would keep it for our home to remember all the memories made there in our early relationship and so our children can see how important the temple is. I love your work!
