“May the joy of our fidelity to the highest and best within us be ours, as we keep our love, and our marriages, our society and our soul as pure as they were meant to be.” ~Jeffrey R Holland
Henry B. Eyring is an amazing man. He has been an example to me of humble faith and devotion to God and family. He spoke at the Vatican Summit where faith leaders discussed marriage. The points he listed at the end of what he said are possible to achieve if two people are committed to walking together in love. With faith in God and a commitment to one’s spouse, generations of children can be benefitted and blessed.
I am also a witness of how a single parent can press forward in faith and still influence children for good. We still need to know how to be faithful IN family settings and, by listening to his words, we can help our children gain insight and understanding, too. If you are one that has carried heartache and heartbreak–even from childhood–his words may help you make sense, clearly, of what was missing or what went wrong.
Let’s change the trend of destructive thoughts, words and actions that we carry into marriage and relationships. Henry B. Eyring suggests how it is possible. I encourage you to listen to his words.

Limbless Man: But they’re different from me! ”
Showman : “Yes.YOU do have an ADVANTAGE. The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.”
I encourage you to take the time to view this short film.
