Each drawing has incorporated Chad's signature 'hidden' images, representing an important event related to that particular temple. Numerous interviews and extensive research have resulted in a work that is informative and spiritually uplifting. Designed as a tribute to the sacrifice and commitment of those who labored to make temples 'dot the earth,' The First 100 Temples will be a cherished keepsake for generations to come.
