3. LIFE School Curriculum: an LDS gospel based homeschool program that is built on the foundation of the scriptures, giving the child a sense of who he is and setting him on the path of discovering his divine mission. It is presented in a four year chronological rotation, integrating all areas of study to create a clear picture of the history of our world.

Kansas City Temple


The Kansas City Missouri Temple is the 137th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is the second temple built in Missouri. The temple's distinctive double towers rise tall over I-435 in Kansas City's Northland, just west of the Liberty Jail Historic Site in Liberty, Missouri. A meetinghouse, constructed at the same time as the temple, stands to the south. Numerous trees and brightly colored flowers fill the inviting grounds, which are open to the public.
