Gordon B. Hinckley (1983)
Love that mormoncenteredthought linked the talk here =) I’d like to point out that this is specifically speaking to women. Yes it absolutely can be applied to everyone, but it’s important to note the intended audience and really think about it in that light.
SO MUCH SNOW OUTSIDE
They’re plowing the parking lot right now. Hope it’s a white Christmas (but not too white because I don’t want to be driving to my parent’s house in a snowstorm) <3
What kind of social?
It’s been over a year and a half
since I got married, and I still cannot get over how much I love my wedding dress. It was really cheap, it was what I wanted since I was a kid, it was easy to alter and make modest, perfect. My mom wasn’t ‘wowed’ when I came out with it but I told her not to look until I got the sash on. When I did, she cried she loved it so much. I dunno why I’m thinking about it right now but I am and I love it.
Young mothers and fathers, with all my heart I counsel you not to postpone having your children, being co-creators with our Father in Heaven.
Do not use the reasoning of the world such as “We’ll wait until we can better afford having children, until we are more secure, until John has completed his education, until he has a better-paying job, until we have a larger home, until we have obtained a few of the material conveniences,” and on and on. This is the reasoning of the world and it is not pleasing in the sight of God.—

"I think back to 1951 when Sister Ballard came into my life…I have often told our children that the best sales accomplishment of my life was getting their mother to agree to marry me…
"…We had a hard time and we had some desperate moments. But as we look back on our thirty-six years together, some of the most beautiful times of our lives were during those early days of our marriage when we were your age. Sister Ballard was nineteen and I was twenty-two. Do not miss living through the difficult times with your companion.
