How Should I Love Thee? – A Message

Strength in Marriage Part of having a strong family – is having a strong marriage.  The foundation to any family is the marriage.  As you know, It’s very difficult to build a house on a weak foundation.

What will happen if you build a house on a weak foundation?

This is something I want to talk about from time to time – as it’s an important part to growing strong families.  Of course, if you are a single mother or father this isn’t meant to mean that you cannot have a strong family.  I think the strength comes from the whole.  Everybody needs to work together – whether married or not.

Today I have a message.  It’s a great message .

I share this not because I want to convert everyone into Mormonism – but because it’s a succinct, beautifully delivered, honest and real message.  I think the LDS Church does a fantastic job in it’s mission to strengthen families.  I really does.

Take a look.

Tell me how you love (your) thee – and how that has caused you to grow together in great strength.

  1. “assume the best and doubt the worst.” Love that.

    • Isn’t that the best? It really is. I just love the positive messages. It leaves me feeling so good.

      Often times when I feel like “lighting my husband up” I view these messages.

  2. Hi Lisa!
    I just wanted to say that even though I’m not Mormon, I truly enjoyed this message. From what I have seen, my Mormon families have very strong marriages and seem to genuinely love and care for one another. They look for the best in each other and hold nothing back when they love. It’s something I want to strive for in my marriage, which is going to be here realllyyy soon. Thank you for sharing. I loved it.

    • Hey Kristina,

      Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s nice to see you around these parts!

      I am really glad you enjoyed the message. I thought twice about posting this but I really thought that everybody could get something out of it, so I am very glad I did.

      Congratulations on the marriage. It’s so exciting that you are planning for your new life together! Just remember, even though the wedding is fun and beautiful and all that. It’s more than the wedding! Despite just want I said, I can’t wait to see the pictures

  3. Wonderful. I totally agree that a strong family is based on the strong marriage- we try really hard to be good married role models for our kids.

    • Hey Jeanette,

      Thanks for coming by and leaving a comment! Yes, I agree that it’s really important to teach throw example. That’s the best way. If the kids are seeing you loving each other through adversity and strength – they will also demand the same from their future partner. You are setting the ultimate example and should be congratulated!


  4. Thank you for sharing this Lisa! I love Elder Holland and the way that he has with words. This was a wonderful reminder to me to focus on HOW I DO love my husband and not just how I think I should love my husband. My boys need to see daily reminders of how to love someone so they will understand true love when they are older. Loved this!

    • Hey Kara,

      I am so glad you enjoyed this post. Elder Holland is absolutely amazing. I hesitated in posting this because it was so highly religious in nature – but I so loved the message and hoped that everyone could get something out of it. It think it’s so important to review daily how we love someone -the small things and the large things. Like you said, it’s important for the kids to see the love that you share. We allow our kids to see the hugs and small kisses – in hopes that they will want and expect that from their partners.

      To me that message was so refreshing – and inspired deep thought about how I can be a better partner and wife.

      Thank you so much for stopping by!
