Oct 2009 General Conference Printables

Today’s Treats come from a lot of different websites. (Let’s just say it’s more of a… buffet of treats today.) Yippy! General Conference is this weekend so we’re all (including the sisters you visit teach) trying to find some fun things for the kids and even for us adults to do. So many creative people have already designed tons of wonderful printables for General Conference, so I felt I needed to share these treasures with you. Print one off and drop it off to the sisters you Visit Teach, I …

Treat Tuesday #26 – Reason = Riesen

Today’s Treat has yet another quote from September’s Visiting Teaching Message. (I think this could be my last treat/tag having to do with this month’s message.)
So, today my Visiting Teachers came over (with a treat too!) and although they didn’t share the exact quote below, they helped me to realize that we do the things we need to do so that we’re ready for the trials that come. Some have more faith than others and pray for trials, I don’t think I am even close to being there yet, praying …

Treat Tuesday #25 – Anxiously Engaged

Today’s Treat is another great enhancer for this month’s Visiting Teaching Message. When I said this month had great quotes, I meant it! I think this one is my favorite. Why? Well, it’s mainly because this one has something to do with being a “girl’s best friend.” That’s right ladies, lets get those diamonds out and show them off. No…j/k! I wanted us to remember that just like diamonds are a girls best friend, we too need to be a friend and more to the sisters we Visit Teach, we …

Treat Tuesday #24 – Batteries

Today’s Treat has been addressed by 2 sisters and it goes perfectly with this month’s message. First it was discussed by Chris Christensen from St. George, UT.
Her Visiting Teachers like to come early in the month and Chris likes to give sisters a little extra to ponder. Here’s what happened.
“During our discussion of the lesson, I asked the gals if they noted the audiences to which the analogies would relate. They hadn’t considered it. Maybe I was reading too much into it. {I don’t think so, I hadn’t thought …

Botones en Español

There are several Spanish speaking Visiting Teachers in the world and they are somehow finding my site, YIPPY! It’s only right that I make buttons in Spanish for them too, because I’ve already made buttons in English & Portuguese. I’ve turned Linda & Oprah into Maestra Visitante Buttons! If you’d rather advertise your love for Visiting Teaching in Spanish on any website or blog, just pick the button which you like best and follow the instructions below.
To display the button just copy all of the html code in the box …

The Oak Tree

September’s Visiting Teaching Message has a lot of fun words we can get creative with. I love it when this happens! This Oak Tree printable was submitted by Gladys Araneda from Santiago, Chile. This is her 2nd time submitting a printable for us Visiting Teachers. Click here to view her first printable. She submitted it in Spanish and I translated it into English, so we could use this super cute tree too. She got the idea for the tree from the very first quote by Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin. This …

A Visiting Teacher Supervisor Poem

A Visiting Teacher Supervisor by Peggy Moore
Your calling is from The Lord above,
Visiting Teachers spread His Love
You are their leader to show the way
It’s not easy you may want to say
At the end of each month your report is due
Not everyone has bothered to call, it’s true
These sisters you call and call again
Are busy with loved ones, family, and kin
Try not to give up and blow them away
You are their teacher, teach them this day
Have patience, love, and understandin’
Realize their lives are very demanding
The Lord sent you to be their …

Treat Tuesday #23 – Trix Cereal

Today’s Treat is perfect if; you know your sisters love cereal, if they have kids or if you have a ton of Trix cereal in your house. It’s hard for me to figure out a new way to let the sisters know we’re there for them without being annoying or pushy. So, here is one more way to let them know you’re there for them and you don’t even have to bake it. I love that!

71. Trix Cereal: All ‘Trix’ aside, we are always thinking of you. Call us …

Visiting Teaching Message (Sep ‘09)

“Understand and Live the Gospel of Christ,” Ensign, Sep 2009, 61

Print Text from LDS.org | English PDF, Spanish PDF, Portuguese PDF | Listen to MP3
How Can I Better Understand and Live the Gospel?
Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin (1917–2008) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: “Faithful members of the Church should be like oak trees and should extend deep roots into the fertile soil of the fundamental principles of the gospel. We should understand and live by the simple, basic truths and not complicate them. Our foundations should be solid and …
