|"While marriage is difficult, and discordant and frustrated marriages are common, yet real, lasting happiness is possiable, and marriage can be more an exultant ecstasy than the human mind can conceive.|
This is within the reach of every couple, every person.
'soul mates' are fiction and illusion; and while every man and woman will seek with all diligence and prayfulness to find a mate with whom life can be most compatible and beautiful, yet it is certain that almost any good man any good woman can have happiness and successful marriage if both are willing to pay the price"
President Spencer W. Kimball

|We have within burning flame,|
A light to kindle lights,
The sacred fire of life itself,
Which if misused ignites
A smold'ring,suffocating cloud
Of Sorrow and distress.
When used by law this power brings forth
A life, a family, happiness.
Temptors from the darkest realm
Seek to pervert this power
In acts of wickedness and waste
Until there comes the hour
Of judgment and of recompense,
When bitter tears are shed
O'er power once held to foster life
That now is gone and dead.
I know this power to be a key,
A very key to God's own plan
Which brings to pass eternal life
And immortality for man.
And marriage is crucible
Where elements of life combine,
Where mortal temples are conceived
Within that plan divine.
Then spirit offspring of our God
Can come through mortal birth
To have a choice, to face the test
The purpose of our stay on earth.
Here good and evil stand alike
Before decision's sovereign nod.
Those who elect the rightous path
Will part the veil, return to God.
A gift from God, the plan provides
That mortal beings in humble strait
Be given power, supernal power,
To share their love and to help create
A living child, a living soul,
Image of Man, and of Deity.
How we regard this sacred gift
Will fix our course, our DESTINY..
