Likening Twilight to a Visiting Teaching Message

Last post for this month. I am sure you all have seen this Visiting Teaching Cartoon going around from 9thWardCartoons.com but I couldn’t resist posting it this month seeing as it is obviously a perfect fit with this month’s Visiting Teaching message. Could be an enhancer too, okay well maybe only for me.

Feed My Sheep Poster

So here’s a cute idea for Relief Society Presidencies or Visiting Teaching Supervisors/Coordinators which I heard is totally cute. It’s called the “Feed My Sheep Poster.”
Use 2 large pieces of white poster board, label each “Feed My Sheep”. Leave one completely white, and draw green grass on the other board, making it look like a field. Display both boards next to each other.
Then cut out one little tiny sheep for each of the sisters in the ward and place them on the blank poster with velcro or magnets. …

Establish a House with Gum!

If you haven’t gone Visiting Teaching yet, no worries, I found another message enhancer for you. Today I found this super awesome idea on another cute Visiting Teaching blog by Kristin to enhance March’s Visiting Teaching Message. So glad others feel the same way about Visiting Teaching as I do. :) You can also use this message enhancer as a drop by gift, just to keep reinforcing this month’s message, depending on what part of the message you want to focus on for the sisters you Visit Teach.

She’s using this …

What is The Book of Mormon?

Has a sister you Visit Teach ever asked you that? (Yes, some may ask you this because they may not remember, especially if they haven’t gone to church in a long while.)  Has anyone ever asked you that? Can you answer that question accurately and would you be happy with the way you answered it? I sure can’t. I’ve read The Book of Mormon several times now, but I still couldn’t tell you all of the stories and facts without messing up. I probably couldn’t even tell it to you …

What is being a Visiting Teacher?

Being a Visiting Teacher is a calling us female members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can have after we become part of the Relief Society (women older than 18 group). The President will assign us a “partner” or “companion” and she’ll also assign us a few sisters of whom we are asked to “watch over.”
“Good visiting teachers know the sisters they visit. They love them, serve them, and help them learn the gospel by the Spirit. They focus on fortifying homes and lives. There is no …
