Faith Has Everything To Do With Your Romance

Book of Mormon Marriage And Family Study

1 Nephi 15:3 – “if ye were righteous and were willing to hearken to the truth, and give heed unto it, that ye might walk uprightly before God, then ye would not murmur because of the truth.”

Elder Holland said, “Believe that your faith has everything to do with your romance, because it does. You separate dating from discipleship at your peril. Or, to phrase that more positively, Jesus Christ the Light of the World, is the only lamp by which you can successfully see the path of love and happiness for you and your sweetheart.”

The gospel of Jesus Christ will do more to strengthen your marriage and family than anything else. More than shared hobbies and interests including necessary restorative recreation.

Your Faith Has Everything To Do With Your Romance

Physical intimacy without emotional intimacy is meaningless.

1 Nephi 11: 21-23 describes the fruits of what the gospel can do for your marriage and family.

  • “the most desirable, above all things.”
  • “the most joyous to the soul.”

Joy! That is why a gospel-centered marriage is not optional. Joy is what every marriage needs, and you can find it in the gospel independent of everything else.
