Five Marriage Takeaways From First Lady Michelle Obama’s DNC Speech

I was awe-struck after First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention earlier this week.  She delivered her message with such grace, class and passion that I could feel it through the car radio. ( I was on the road traveling ..but I was able to hear/feel her speech.)  And whether you are a republican or a Democrat, you have to admit that she delivered one of the best speeches ever given during a national convention…hands down.

And what resonated with me the most was her dedication to her family.  Our First Lady told us that first and foremost ..she was “Mom in Chief”and she wanted to ensure that being in the White House did not have any adverse effects on her children or her marriage.

At the end of the day, Michelle Obama (our First Lady) was a woman that was on that stage to support her husband. And, if you know anything about Lamar and me, you know that we believe that when husbands and wives work together they can achieve any goal they set out to meet and they can overcome any obstacle that comes before them.  And over the last four years, Barack and Michelle Obama have been shining examples of what a married couple that works together can accomplish.

Here are a few other other marriage takeaways that I took from our First Lady’s speech on Tuesday night:

Continue to Have Date Night

Our First Lady told us that she and President Obama still have date nights. And she kept it real too: ”and a date night for Barack and me was either dinner or a movie, because as an exhausted mom, I couldn’t stay awake for both.” I thought I was the only one that was too tired to do both dinner and a movie! You should see Lamar and me struggling to stay awake at the movies on our date nights. LOL.
Takeaway: It's important (no it's imperative) to have quality time with each other on a regular basis. You need to set aside time to just enjoy each other and strengthen your bond.

    Fantastic post! I really love your takeaways! Michelle’s speech was powerful & poignant. It’s one that I think we’ll continue talking about for years to come. My favorite line was “Being President doesn’t change who you are, it reveals who you are.”
