Betty Jan Murphy, “Ten Minutes a Room,” Ensign, Dec. 1979, pg 61
After some years of frustration at not being able to accomplish my goals in homemaking, I devised a game for myself that helps our household run more smoothly.

Treat Tuesday #4

Phew, made it with 22 min to spare! LOL This week I decided to add Matching Printable Tags (see PDF below) to go along with each fun Treat Tuesday quote. So, now you don’t have to make the tags yourself, I’ll make them for you. (Unless of course, you want to create more work for yourself, who does that?)

Scripture Nugget Labels

Here are some candy labels with a few quotes from this month’s Visiting Teaching message which will convince or just remind chocolate lovers to “Search the Scriptures Diligently” or “treasure the scriptures.” You can print these fun labels in color or black & white (see PDF below) then wrap them around your Visiting Teachee’s favorite kind of “Hershey’s Nuggets” or “Hershey’s Treasures” chocolates.

Reality VT: Grateful for Visiting Teachers

I’m thankful for Visiting Teachers! I sometimes get caught up in being a Visiting Teacher that I don’t allow myself to have Visiting Teachers come and visit with me.  I guess, I just know how much time goes into being a Visiting Teacher.

Real thoughts & experiences by Real Visiting Teachers = Reality VT
by Molly from Molly-Mormon.com. Her 2 cents on April’s Visiting Teaching Message to “Search the Scriptures Diligently.”
