Doctrine of Marriage

Today was my last lesson teaching in Relief Society in my ward. Even though I sometimes think I bore the sisters and they might be tired of my handout… I just love that calling! Once a month… inspiring message to study… sharing testimony. It’s just great!

I was concerned about the controversy out there surrounding the topic of marriage, but Elder Christofferson’s message was so full of doctrine and truth, there wasn’t anywhere for the lesson to go off on zany tangents. It was some rock-solid doctrine that helped me identify some ways to communicate about my belief about marriage being of God… and not just about love.

This was my favorite quote from the message, “Why marriage, why family?” by Elder Christofferson:
marriage love from god

God has a plan for each of us.
He strengthens us as we strive to keep his commandments.
I love doctrine described simply for my wee tired brain.

Sorta hard to bear testimony and say bon-voyage to my ward sisters. I was so brave all week, but my tears did sneak out during those last two minutes. So many good people who have uplifted my family during our nearly 8 years of living here.
