Jan. 2017 Visiting Teaching Handout

It is almost the new year and it is time for the Jan. 2017 Visiting Teaching Handout!

This is for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Jan 2017 VTThe theme is: The purpose of Relief Society.  

I picked the quote from Linda K. Burton about the purpose is to prepare women for the blessings of eternal life!  What a wonderful purpose!Jan 2017 VTThese handouts have a winter theme, so I paired it with a pair of gloves.  You could do Hostess “snowballs”,  snowball white chocolate candies, a scarf, or anything to do with winter.  Let your imagination go wild!jan-2017-vt-000-page-1Here is the message handout. 

All of the cards are formatted to a 4 x 6 size.  To print as a jpeg image, right click over the image.  Go to “save image as”.  Save in a folder.  You can then print your own, or send it to your favorite photo processing center.jan-2017-vt-002-blankThis is the blank card for those that would like to translate.  If you need a fun winter card, note or invite…this will work great for that.  But please remember that all of these images are for personal use only!jan-2017-vt-001-thought-questionI added the thought question to a tag.  You can tie this to your treat or you can simply give it how it is.  There are two tags to a card and all you need to do is cut it in half!jan-2017-vt-003-blank-thought-questionAnd here are the blank tags again for those that would like to translate.

So that is my Jan. 2017 Visiting Teaching Handout.

Let’s start out the new year right and get our visiting done early.  Make sure the sisters that you visit know how much you love and care about them!  

As always, it is the visit that matters…not the handout!

Thanks for stopping by…Happy Visiting this Month!

The images for these handouts are from “justsoscrappy.com”, from the “Let It Snow” collection.  They are used with a CU licence.

  5. These are beautiful. How do you make them do you use a cricket cutter or just buy the parts from a scrapbooking store. I would love to make them to share with my sister that I visit

    1. Carolyn, All of my visiting teaching handouts are free printables! You can just print your own, or you can send it out to your favorite photo processing center. I like to print mine out on photo paper, to give it a more polished look. Hope this helps you.

  6. Thank you Rita for making these DARLING hand outs for us all to bless our sisters we vt. I know for me, it has made vt more fun to share the message each month! I have a sister that just commented how she loves, and looks forward to your cute hand out to put on her fridge for the month. Thanks for sharing your cute ideas and handouts, but most of all, thanks for sharing your talent to bless others. Happy New Year! Lisa P.

    1. Lisa, thank you so much for taking the time to write your sweet comment. And for sharing about the sisters you visit. Hope you have a great day and happy visiting!

  7. I love your site and being able to customize the blank copies for specific sisters. I am having trouble getting the blank copy to allow me to type the message into it. Could you please send me detailed instructions? Again thank you so much for sharing!

    1. Suzanne, you need to be in a program that allows you you to create a text box. Then you can add your text and edit the font to the size and style that you want. Hope this helps

  8. I love this! I would like to print these out as a photo quality print to give to the sisters we visit teach and some that I write to each month. Is there any way to convert from .pdf file to.jpg file? Or how do others print them?

  9. Never mind, Rita. I figured out how to save the jpg image. I just got in a hurry and didn’t read close enough. These are so cute! Thank you so much!!

    1. Noria, You are welcome! Thank you for taking the time to write your kind comment. I really appreciate it! Happy Visiting this month!

  10. Rita, Thank you for all your beautiful handouts! I love bringing them to my sisters who always light up when they receive one. I print them on photo paper that give them an extra sparkle. The message is looked at and thought about for a very long time because of the cute way you create the cards. Thank you again!

    1. Laurie, You are welcome! Thank you for taking the time to write your sweet comment. I appreciate it and you! You are very kind. Hope you have a wonderful day and Happy Visiting this month!

  11. Thank you Rita! I have been using your cute ideas for several months now and my ladies LOVE them. I’ve been to other VT websites for ideas but always come back to yours because they’re simply adorable! Thanks again.

  12. Hi Rita!

    Our Relief Society President asked me about your reading program, prior to General Conference. I believe it was suggested that we read the complete Ensign Conference edition.

    Thanking you in advance for any info regarding that suggested reading list.


  13. Thank you so much for sharing your time and talents with all of us, Rita!
    I have a question about the VT handouts: When do you typically try to have them posted for the next month? I want to send them to be printed as soon as I can so that I can give them to sisters on the first Sunday of the month (or the last Sunday of the previous month would be even better!) Is there a date each month that you try to have them posted?
    Again, thank you…What a giving heart you have!

    1. Lynn, Thank you so much for taking the time to write your comment. I try to have the visiting teaching handout posted a couple of days before the new month. I know that helps most of the time, but not always. I am usually waiting for the message to come out before I can get my handout ready to go…so I cannot get them a whole lot earlier. Hope you have a great day and Happy Visiting this month!

  14. I’m SO grateful each month for your generosity in sharing your talents with a willing, albeit artistically challenged sister like me. I love you for it!

    1. Pam, You are very welcome! Thank you so much for taking the time to write your kind comment. I really appreciate it and your sweet support! Happy Visiting!
