Oct. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

Can you believe that it is already October…and it is time for the Oct. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout, for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Where does the time go?  (I think I say that every month!)Oct 2015 VT handoutAs promised yesterday, I have another fun treat idea for you to give to your sisters!  But first about the handout; “The Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ: Filled with Charity and Love”.  I chose the quote from President Monson, this quote really hit me at the heart…I need to have a lot more charity and love for ALL people!  I tend to get a little judgmental sometimes when I think that people are not getting treated right, so this message is definitely for me!  I included the scripture reference in John about that “ye love one another.”October-2015-VT-handout-000-Page-1Here is the JPEG format for the Oct. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout.  The cards are formatted to a 4 x 6 size as usual.October-2015-VT-handout-001-blankHere is the blank card for those of you that would like to translate or for those of you that need a fun fall card.  To print, right click over the image and go to “save image as” then save in a folder.  You can then print your own or send them out to your favorite photo processing center.

Now for the handout:DSC_4586I simply filled an icing piping bag with candy corns, tied a green ribbon to the top and printed and cut out the tags!  It doesn’t get much easier than that!  My granddaughter loved this tag…but then she loves candy corns!  As for me, you will not find me eating these vegetables…I think they are disgusting!Eat-Your-Vegetables-tag-000-Page-1Here are the JPEG tags.  This is formatted to an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.  I just printed mine out on photo paper for a nice glossy tag, but you could also just print them on card stock paper.  I have given you a whole page of tags so you have plenty to share with whomever you would like, for personal use only of course!

Here is the PDF download:  Eat your Vegetables TagOct 2015 VT handoutSo there you have my ideas for the Oct. 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout.  As always…please remember that it is the visit that is important…not the handout!  I hope that your sisters know how much you love and care about them!

Hope you have a great day and Happy Visiting!

  1. I love that quote! I don’t believe I’ve heard that one before, but it is so true – and so easy to forget while going about the day-to-day.
    Also love the “eat your vegetables!” xD

  3. Rita, this comment is long overdue. I am the visiting teaching coordinator in my ward. For the last eight months, or so, I have mass printed your cute message, and some months, I have even made your amazing handouts for all the visiting teachers. They always get rave reviews. My friends in the other ward in my building confess that they usually grab a few for themselves. My thinking is, if they take a message and handout and don’t do their visiting teaching, they will look at it sitting on their counters and feel really guilty. And they will for sure do it the next month! So, thank you very much for your generosity in sharing your creativity. Also, if you’re ever in Park City on a Sunday, come to church at the Silver Creek Ward!

    1. Melanie, Thank you so much for that kind comment. I really appreciate your taking the time to write and for your sweet support! I am grateful for all that you are doing for the sisters of your ward…and other wards! Thank you! Also thank you for the invite to your ward, I love the Park City area and we are up that way often, but usually come home for church on Sunday. but thanks for thinking of me. Hope you have a great day and Happy Visiting this month.

  6. Rita,
    I am newly called VT coordinator in my ward. I love the October msg you had and had it done via Walmart but they won’t release it to me until I have a release of copyright from you to them. Is that possible?
    Thank you!

  7. Dear Rita,
    Like my library books, this note is over due. Thank you for sharing your talents in creating the visiting teaching handouts each month. I gave each of my sisters a four by six frame in January and then each month they add the new message reminder. We all love them. Thanks again.
