Memories of the Ogden Temple

The Ogden LDS Temple has meant many things to Dr. Brett Moyes. But nothing was quite as powerful as when he and his family brought a little orphan girl into the family and took her to the temple last year to have her sealed to them.

Moyes, a South Ogden dentist, was serving a humanitarian mission to Micronesia nearly six years ago when a woman approached him and his wife, Shanna, with her baby girl. She explained that she was stricken with diabetes and could not care for the child.

"She put the baby in my wife's arms and asked us to take care of her," Moyes said.

The couple brought Dari home with them and legally adopted her. Last year, Dari was sealed to her parents for time and all eternity in the Ogden Temple.

Although that moment was probably the most meaningful for Moyes, he has other fond memories of the temple. His father, Dr. J. Kirk Moyes, served as temple president from 1999 to 2002. At the same time, his mother, Sharyl, served as temple matron.
