Here is my visiting teaching handout for our church for this month.
Again, we learn of a quality of Jesus Christ and this month it is
“Savior and Redeemer”.
How appropriate for this Easter Season!
I absolutely love the message by Sister Burton about the Savior and Redeemer! It goes right along with the spiritual reason that we celebrate Easter and the importance of the atonement in each of our lives! The story of the woman who compares herself to an old, used, crumpled up $20 bill is one that every single one of us needs to apply in our own life!
So, here is the printable that includes that message:
Is it really February already? (well, almost) My oh my, how times flies when you are having fun! :)
Here is my handout for my church’s visiting teaching handout for February.
All of the lessons this year are focused on a trait of the Savior.
I love the trait for this month:
I decided to use this quote from President Monson: “Ours is the responsibility to care for the flock…May we each step up to serve” but the scriptures that are quoted this month are also excellent quotes and ideas!
We had a great day and went to the movie, “Frozen”. It is a darling movie and I can see why all the kids love it…I loved it!
I was also able to start organizing a little bit, but I have a whole lot more to go! I still have not put all my Christmas away, which is not like me, but I just cannot seem to jump in tackle it quite yet. But I will! :)
I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We had a great one even though there was a lot of excitement in our neighborhood! One of our neighbors had a fire in their home on Thanksgiving morning! The home received smoke damage and damage to half of the house, but it is not a total loss, thank goodness! We are hoping that they will be able to move back in a week or two! But it will probably take months to get their home all put back together! It really makes you stop and count your blessings and my number one blessing is always my family, as was our neighbor’s! Everyone was safe and that was the most important thing!
But now, here is the December visiting teaching handout for Relief Society for my church I love that it is all about the Savior for this month, because to me that is what Christmas is all about!
I chose to focus on this quote by Elder D. Todd Christofferson.
This month for your visiting teaching message you will need to pick your favorite conference talk to discuss with your sisters, so I decided just to do a general card that you can hand out with any talk that you choose. With it being November, I went with a “thankful” theme. We all have many blessings that we need to be thankful for, one of them being the fact that we have a general conference twice a year with a living prophet to lead our church! I love conference weekend and the wonderful spirit that I feel every time I listen to our leaders.
So with that being said, I hope that you can show your gratitude to your sisters for all of your blessings.
This month they are starting a new series on the visiting teaching message: “This is the first in a series of Visiting Teaching Messages featuring aspects of the mission of the Savior.”
The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Creator
This month the aspect that is being taught is that Jesus Christ is the Creator. I chose to feature the quote by President Utchdorf; “We are the Reason He Created the Universe! I love this thought and I hope that we can all remember this in times of trial and sorrow.
Here is my visiting teaching handout for this month.
This is a message that the sisters of the church take out to each other when they go to visit them each month.
The message for this month is about welfare. The thought that I used is the one by President Erying, I love the overall message of this quote. There has always been a way provided for us to help others. We need to just keep our eyes and our hearts open to those around us that we could serve!
This month the message for visiting teaching for our church is “Teaching and Learning the Gospel” There is a quote by President Kimball that says in part: ”Become scholars of the scriptures-not to put others down, but to lift them up! After all, who has any greater need to ‘treasure up’ the truths of the gospel than do women and mothers who do so much nurturing and teaching?” So this is what I based my handout on for this month.
I thought that it would be fun to do an Americana theme since it is July.
I also mentioned a few days ago, that I am making some changes to my blog and one of the things I am doing is making my printables in a pdf format so that you can just download them, I hope this will make things easier for you to print them!
My husband and I both come from families that have several people that do a lot of family history and a lot of our work has been done, but we went to one of the church’s family history centers several months ago and one of the really fun things that we did was to generate a family genealogy fan! This is a great image that will show you all of your ancestors all in the same place. It shows you who has been found and where there are holes in your lines. It is really a cool way to see everything all at once!
You do not have to go to a family history center to generate your own fan, anyone can do your own online here:
This is a fun way to get started with your family history, or if you have already done some of your history, this is a great way to see what you have done and where the holes need to be filled in. I really encourage you to try this and also to encourage your sisters that you visit to try it out. I would love for you to share this link with them.
So this month, for the visiting teaching message, I thought that it would just be fun to do a tag that says “Scatter Sunshine through Family History”.
And I am so loving our warmer weather and I am ready to get outside to play and to work in the yard. This month’s handout just looks like spring! So I hope that it will cheer up your day as well as the sisters that you visit!
I took President Monson’s quote to focus on. I decided to just go with a spring theme for this month, since St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are both in March, so I took a more generic route. I love the colors in this handout, they just make me happy. I am so ready for Spring to come, but it is still a ways off here in Utah. I still have snow out in my yard! So I will have to be content to just bring the bright colors into my home for a little while longer.
To print, just right click over the image and go to “save image as”, then save in one of your folders. You can print from there or send out to your favorite photo processor. You can also right click over image and go to “copy image” then open your favorite program like word or presentations and right click again and go to “paste”. You can then print.
These are formatted to a 4 x 6 size.
Here is the blank one for those of you that want to translate the information.
This would also make a really fun card, invite, or tag!
I have a really fun idea to go with this that I am giving to the sisters that I visit, but I did not get it done in time to take good pictures. So I will take the pictures tomorrow in the daylight and I will post it next week! Check back then to see what I have been up to!
How is everyone doing with the challenge to get 100% visits this year? Let’s keep going!
This is a post that I shared at Ginger Snap Crafts last week and decided that I would now share it with you. It was fun to go back through the last year and review some of the projects and recipes. This is really a good exercise for all of us to do. Look back through your journals, calendars, or notebooks and take a look at all the things that you accomplished throughout this last year. It is really quite rewarding to recognize all the things you have completed or overcome! You should really do this!
This is a great way to lighten up your purse and yet still have all the things that you would need while you are out carpooling and driving kids from place to place, running errands, etc. etc. etc. (Do you sometimes feel like you live in your car?)
It talks about the importance of sharing our testimonies and teaching those that we visit.
I just made a fun little Christmas themed card for this month. You could pair this with a fun Christmas treat, book, lotion, or any other little gift that you might want to give. But really and truly the visit is the most important part and sharing your time and talents with all those whom you serve!
Here is a blank one for those of you who would like to translate!
These are formatted to 4 x6 so you can just send them to be printed, if you want to do that.
To print, right click over image and go to “save image as” then just save into one of your pictures files.
The message this month is: “Honoring Our Covenants” I chose to focus on the quote from Russell M. Nelson, I love his quote about when we realize who we are… I also like that visiting teaching is an expression of our discipleship and a way to honor our covenants as we serve and strengthen one another.Continue reading →
