Christian D. Larson (1874 – 1962) was a New Thought leader and teacher, as well as a prolific author of metaphysical and New Thought books. He is credited by Horatio Dresser as being a founder in the New Thought movement.  Many of Larson’s books remain in print today, nearly 100 years after they were first published, and his writings influenced notable New Thought authors and leaders, including Religious Science founder, Ernest Holmes.

Larson, of Norwegian origin, was born in Iowa and attended Iowa State College and a Unitarian theological school in Meadville, PA.  While little is known about his personal life and what led to his studies in mental science, what is known is its logical teachings appealed to Larson’s analytical mind and led him to discover that combining theology and science could provide a practical and systematic philosophy of life.  During his time he was honorary president of the International New Thought Alliance and lectured extensively during the 1920s and 1930s. He was a colleague of such notables as William Walker Atkinson, Charles Brodie Patterson, and Home of Truth founder Annie Rix Militz. He developed the Optimist Creed in use today by Optimist International, better known as the Optimist Clubs.

He married wife Georgea L DuBois on February 14, 1918. They had two children, Louise DuBois Larson (born 1920) and Christian D. Larson Jr. (born 1924). The family lived in Beverly Hills for many years.

The Classic Pamela Positive: “Love Is a Partnership Of Two Unique People Who Bring Out the Very Best In Each Other” – Barbara Cage

 

“Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other, and who know that even though they are wonderful as individuals, they are even better together.”

– Barbara Cage

It doesn’t matter whether it is marriage or not. Bring out the best in people. Our standards for marriage should be the highest we have, in how we treat people. Why not apply a “Marriage Standard,”  to all our relationships? Life is so exciting if we are in high pursuit of a lofty goal in how we treat others.

 


 

Barbara Cage is known for her quotes on love, marriage, relationships, and mothers and daughters.  Not much is known about her but what’s known is that her quotes on those topics have appeared in many publications and websites such as The Happy Wives Club.

-Michael J. Fox

This is true for every relationship. Whether it is your husband, partner, friend, calling in life, your labrador, or the beautiful sun we greet each day, be prepared… to fall in love again.

Appreciating all we have is the most wonderful, nurturing gift we can wrap for ourselves, others and the world.  It envelops everything in the giftwrap of love.

I am here to grow

“A great spouse loves you exactly as you are.  An extraordinary spouse helps you grow; inspires you to be, do and give your very best.” – Fawn Weaver

If you want to become a great person… grow.

We aren’t born perfectly and we don’t end perfectly.

Do you make mistakes?

I do.

But I am here to grow. To move on from the past and reach a greater version of myself.

And the best way we can do that is to grow in love. That’s our soil. Whatever relationship you are in, make sure the relationships in which you are planted, are loving you to new heights.
