We'll Ascend Together

We switched things around a little in our FHE the last few weeks. This week was my turn to go over Sis Burton's talk.  I had each family member read a section and tell me what they learned. My daughter had the first section and seemed to zero in on:

"I am convinced that a husband is never more attractive to his wife than when he is serving in his God-given roles as a worthy priesthood holder—most important in the home."

We tried to talk about what that really meant. It's not what the outward appearance the matters most, but where a man's heart, commitment, and devotion are.

I remember when Sis Burton was reading the list of questions. At the end of #5, my DH raised his hands and shouted "5 for 5! We have a great marriage!"

 am grateful for a father who was devoted to the gospel. I watched him perform all that was required of him and learned what it was I wanted in a husband when I was a young single adult. I found that devotion in another wonderful man.
