Elder M. Russell Ballard’s Facebook account shared a bit of advice from the apostle.
“Don’t be afraid of marriage,” Elder Ballard said. “I have been much more effective and much more able to accomplish things in my life with Barbara at my side than I ever would have been alone. Did we have hard times? Oh, yes. But they were some of the best times because we drew together, we prayed together, we worked together, we saw our way from one point of our lives on until today.”https://www.facebook.com/lds.m.russell.ballard/posts/738988519623225
