Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep Dreaming about the things that we could be But, baby, I've been, I've been praying hard Said, no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars. I see this life like a swinging vine Swing my heart across the line And my face is flashing signs Seek it out and ye shall find. Old, but I'm not that old Young, but I'm not that bold And I don't think the world is sold On just doing what we're told. I feel something so, but right doing the wrong thing And I feel something so wrong, but doing the right thing I could lie, could lie, could lie Everything that kills me makes me feel alive. Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep Dreaming about the things that we could be But, baby, I've been, I've been praying hard Said, no more counting dollars, we'll be, we'll be counting stars. I feel the love, and I feel it burn Down this river, every turn Hope is a four-letter word Make that money, watch it burn. And I feel something so wrong, but doing the right thing I could lie, could lie, could lie Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly. Take that money, watch it burn Sink in the river the lessons I've learned Take that money, watch it burn Sink in the river the lessons I've learned.

If she can't or won't consider that the church is a lie, you need to move on because this relationship can't go anywhere. The fact that she is dating an atheist non-Mormon shows pretty serious lack of conformity already. As a general authority I knew, now deceased, told me in the mid-eightiesвIf you find a good man who is not LDS, marry him.
Thanks - I searched but couldn't find it. Yes, anyone crazy enough to believe the story of gold plates should be able to rationalize a brown rock. I was recently married to my husband in the Twin Falls, Idaho temple for time and all eternity.
