Discipleship   “…Christlike staying power in romance                                and marriage requires more than we                               naturally have.  It requires an endowment  from heaven.  Remember Mormon’s promise – that  such love, the love we each yearn for and cling to, is  bestowed upon  true followers of Christ.”     “…charity is the pure love of Christ, and it endureth forever…  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, pray unto the Father with all the  energy of heart, that ye may be filled with this love, which he hath  bestowed upon all who are true followers of his Son, Jesus  Christ…”   M oroni 7:47-48

Discipleship   “You want capability and safety in dating                                 and romance, in married life and eternity?                              Be a true disciple of Jesus.  Be a genuine,                            committed, word-and-deed Latter-day Saint.                                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 true path of love and happiness  for you and your sweetheart.”
