The origin of “Love Is Spoken Here” is one of good timing and inspiration. The song’s author, Janice Kapp Perry, was in need of a title for a song she was going to enter into a song contest for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During a party she was attending, she turned to her husband and said, “Could you give me a good idea for the song contest? When he asked when the deadline was, her reply was “Two days.” He then asked how long she knew about it, to which she replied, “Just this one . . . year.” As they were leaving the party, her husband saw a cross-stitch sampler above the kitchen sink that said "Love Is Spoken Here." He said, “There’s your title, get busy.”
