“Let Thy Soul Delight in Thy Husband”

Doctrine and Covenants 25:14

14 . . . Let thy soul delight in thy husband, and the glory which shall come upon him.

President David O. McKay said:

“Aptly it has been said that, ‘Often a woman shapes the career of husband, or brother, or son.’ A man succeeds and reaps the honors of public applause, when in truth a quiet little woman has made it all possible—has by her tact and encouragement held him to his best, has had faith in him when his own faith has languished, has cheered him with the unfailing assurance ‘you can, you must, you will.’”

(“David O. McKay, 1873–1970,” Improvement Era, Feb. 1970, 14.)
