General Conference Window Cleaner Card
I chose to create an enhancer for this message from the General Relief Society Meeting, because, I personally needed to hear President Monson’s message titled Charity Never Faileth. I never thought of myself as being judgmental, but after listening to him and re-reading his message, I believe I have some work to do. My Favorite part, of course, is this one:
““Why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?” Or, to paraphrase, why beholdest thou what you think is dirty laundry at your neighbor’s house but considerest not the soiled window in your own house?”
You can now see why I chose to use a window cleaner (which is a digital graphic from LetteringDelights.com which I altered). This will help remind me that I’m not looking through a perfect set of eyes, and that I should focus more on improving myself instead of trying to judge others. It also reminds me to stop talking and just do it, just take time to clean my own windows instead of staring out of them. [Which BTW I should anyways, because my windows are dirty.] I love the sweet husband in the story, who took initiative and cleaned the window for his dear wife. I know my hubby would have cleaned our windows too. I’m grateful to be married to a great Priesthood holder, who creatively helps me to become a better person, instead of judging me like I have just judged someone else.
It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to re-read, listen or watch General Conference again, to keep us focused. This is the message I needed to hear, but my sisters may need a different one. I may end up sharing a different message, but of course all messages are to help us in our lives, especially those who come from the prophet of God.
President Monson’s whole story (but not the entire talk) is quoted in this Window Cleaner Card printable PDF. It’s double-sided, one side in color and one in black and white. Should line up really well when printed double-sided.

November 2010 – Pre-made & Handmade Visiting Teaching & Home Teaching Gifts & Kits
These General Conference themed premade gifts are fantastic because they can be used for Home Teaching and Visiting Teaching this month. Since our hubbies are always helping us out, why not help them. I know my hubby is always relying on the gifts and goodies I have ready for him to take with him when he goes Home Teaching. The sisters who designed these gifts and kits chose different messages to focus their kits on, so pick the one you feel will help them the most.
