Husbands, you have a huge responsibility.

Husbands, you have a huge responsibility.
.
Sure, it can be extremely challenging. Challenge is something my wife and I have gone through our entire marriage.
.
It probably would be a lot easier if I were more cooperative and not so stubborn. I admit to being the donkey of our relationship—she knows that, too.
.
As hard as it can be, has been, and probably will still be, I don’t want to live without my eternal companion.
.
How are you and your eternal companion preparing each other? One day, one of you will pass through the veil before the other. Have you taken measures to prepare for that? Do you communicate and plan well for that time? It’s inevitable, so think about it.
.
When we keep our temple covenants, then, come what may! Why should you worry? If not, and you are off track, you should probably remember the covenants you made with your wife and what you promised her.
.
To all of you wonderful wives—those who may be struggling from a husband who decided to lie to you and the Lord. Learn from Elder Faust.
.
Elder James E. Faust taught, your husband “must bear the responsibility for the train of consequences which inevitably follow if these covenants are not honored.”
.
We need to recognize the sacred role the Savior himself put on womanhood. A woman is a nurturer by the way they are created. A husband should find specific things his wife is doing and gently reinforce her sacred role as a woman.
.
Now, read this carefully, brothers and sisters.
.
Elder Richard G. Scott spoke during an interview with Sheri Dew.
.
”I don’t believe that the temple ordinance guarantees that we will be together forever. There will be a time, before that holy spirit of promise makes it eternal, where we will be in the presence of the Savior, as individuals, and there will be a choice.
.
Whether we continue with the sealing or not, and I want to do everything in my power to qualify so that she will choose for that sealing to be eternal.”
.
I pray I can do the same here during my mortal probation. I pray I will do things to convince my wife to choose for our eternal sealing to be eternal.
.
Hear Him!
