Class Outline

Too often we worry that our marriages are not perfect. Celestial marriages do not just happen; they are created. We worry that we don't have the power to create such a marriage alone. In this class, we will discuss how one person can make a difference in creating a Celestial marriage. We will discuss practical, everyday applications of gospel doctrines in marriage. 

  1. D&C 123:17; 2 Timothy 1:7; Mosiah 24:15—Don't Worry Be Happy. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  2. Alma 32:21; Ether 12:6—Faith is things hoped for and not seen. We will study how living the principles of righteousness (DC 121:36) will bring blessings to marriage. 
  3. Ether 12:37—It Mattereth Not. It doesn't matter what anyone else does, when one person lives the principles of righteousness-things change.
  4. Alma 24—Personal strength and influence come through covenants. We will study how making and keeping personal covenants to live principles of righteousness, even as we face trials, will bring blessings.
