An Added Measure of the Spirit

I am a mother with two wonderful children and a supportive husband. In this world of uncertainties, the Liahona is indeed our family’s modern compass. As we read the First Presidency Message and other inspiring articles in our family home evenings, an added measure of the Spirit of the Lord comes into our home. We feel the power of the Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and find comfort and peace.

Humility and Forgiveness in Marriage

The article “Putting My Marriage before My Pride” (Jan. 2008) helped me more fully understand the responsibility of the covenant of marriage. I read the article with my fiancé, and we made goals to make humility and forgiveness important principles in our relationship. I thought about framing the article to put in our future home so we can always remember the sweet spirit that we felt when we shared this message and strengthened our love.
