Daily Reminder on Family: #19 out of 21

Today I,  ____________________, will do my part in strengthening my family.

One way you can strengthen your family:

“Show your love for your family members each day.” – For the Strength of Youth

I, ____________________, commit to sharing my love for my family members today.


“Express Love—and Show It

“We can begin to become more diligent and concerned at home by telling the people we love that we love them. Such expressions do not need to be flowery or lengthy. We simply should sincerely and frequently express love.

“Brethren and sisters, when was the last time you took your eternal companion in your arms and said, “I love you”? Parents, when was the last time you sincerely expressed love to your children? Children, when was the last time you told your parents that you love them?

“Each of us already knows we should tell the people we love that we love them. But what we know is not always reflected in what we do. We may feel unsure, awkward, or even perhaps a bit embarrassed.

“As disciples of the Savior, we are not merely striving to know more; rather, we need to consistently do more of what we know is right and become better.

“We should remember that saying “I love you” is only a beginning. We need to say it, we need to mean it, and most importantly we need consistently to show it. We need to both express and demonstrate love.” – More Diligent and Concerned at Home by David A. Bednar

Do your parents, siblings, children, spouses, know how much you love them? Have you told them recently? Are you doing what you can to show your love for them?
