Marriage – An Eternal Partnership

“In the temple, we receive the highest ordinance available to men and women, the sealing of husbands and wives together for eternity.”

 This chapter will take us through the various stages. Those who are not married, those deciding whom to marry, those who are married, and those who have experienced divorce.

 How can we have a successful marriage?

 “Marriage is a learned behavior. Our conscious effort, not instinct, determines the success.” “It is often said that being happily and successfully married is generally not so much a matter of marrying the right person as it is being the right person.” “Living the principles of the gospel makes a happy marriage…When two people can live the principles of the gospel, marriage can be sweet and it can be happy.”

 Ponder 1 Corinthians 13:4

 Ponder in your hearts how you have worked to make a successful marriage. If you are not married, ponder what you are doing to prepare yourself for marriage.

 I love being married and am excited about this topic. I look forward to discussing it with you all!

The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper

In this lesson, President Hunter wants to teach us to understand the significance of the sacrament and it's connection to the ancient celebration of the Passover and to review the Savior's introduction of this ordinance during a Passover meal with his disciples. Come join us for this discussion.

"As [Jesus] took the bread and broke it, and took the cup and blessed it, he was presenting himself as the Lamb of God who would provide spiritual nourishment and eternal salvation."

Visiting Teaching

Sisters we will be studying Chapter 7 from Daughters in My Kingdom tomorrow in Relief Society along with the 2000 General Conference talk from Virginia U Jensen titled "Ripples."

 We will have a fun quiz about the origins of Relief Society and Visiting Teaching with prizes so reading will reap prizes as well as blessings! :)

 Please follow the two links below for your reading preparation. 


 Thoughts to ponder from this chapter:

"The Savior calls His disciples to work with Him in His ministry, giving them the opportunity to serve others and become more like Him. In Relief Society, each sister has the opportunity to watch over and strengthen sisters one by one through visiting teaching. Sister Julie B. Beck, the fifteenth Relief Society general president, said, “Because we follow the example and teachings of Jesus Christ, we value this sacred assignment to love, know, serve, understand,"


Thoughts to ponder from this talk:

"Like the expanding circles our pebbles made on Jackson Lake, the actions of righteous women ripple on and on through time and space and even generations. These righteous actions come from our understanding of the divine mission of Jesus Christ, our knowledge of the gospel plan, our obedience to eternal commandments, and our work in this, the kingdom of God on earth."

 Sisters, I have a testimony of the divinely inspired program of Visiting Teaching and look forward to discussing this important assignment,while encouraging and strengthening one another.

 Love, Sister Marstella ​
