Conversion Hearts (4×6)

Nothing like a new baby followed by a New Year to get me motivated enough to get this Visiting Teaching site back up and flowing with great Visiting Teaching ideas, stories, inspiration and more! It’s true the site got hacked, fixed, moved and crashed and fixed again, and got a new calling in between to serve our wonderful Young Women. Phew! When I first designed the site we had just had our 1st little boy, he’s going to be 5 this month! And in October of 2013 we just had …

We need not fear 4×6

Yippy, I really am blown away at the many sisters who are talented with the computer and can design anything and everything for us Visiting Teachers to print. I’m having sisters contact me about designing Visiting Teaching printables. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and Visiting Teaching is my errand to be an angel and I am grateful others share this knowledge with me. :)
So this month our Telisa from Sugar Tot Designs has designed a fun Orange, Black on White printable with the following quote from this month’s …

General Conference Traditions Booklet

As we prepare to hear the words of the Prophet and other mouthpieces of the Lord, I find myself focusing on the more important things in my life.  There are things I strive to accomplish personally in my life, as a wife, as a mother, but especially as a daughter of God here on the Earth with purpose and direction.  What exactly is that direction? Sometimes, I feel like there are so many different things pulling me in a lot of different directions all at once. You sisters seem to …

General Conference Journal Page

I’ve been wanting to start a General Conference Journal. So here’s my chance here in 2011! After sharing it with our ward I figured I’d share it with you all too. Seriously, there were so many cute ideas out there for Youth, Primary and even Nursery! I wanted something that wasn’t super “showy” for adults and not too cutesy that guys wouldn’t like it either. Something that would help me concentrate on General Conference and help me get the most out of it. I also wanted to make sure I …

General Conference Helps

As many of you may have noticed, this November 2010 General Conference issue of the Ensign/Liahona has some great helps and teaching tools besides the printed text of all the messages shared. Here’s an overview with the files which you can print at home for the sisters you Visit Teach in case you feel they need them or if they don’t even have a copy of the Ensign or Liahona magazines.
General Authorities Chart: This contained a two-page chart showing the General Authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day …

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 …

FALL in love w/ Temple Service

What a great Conference weekend! I love being able to spend time with family and listen to the prophet, his counselors, the apostles and other leaders of The Church. They are amazing examples of love, service and dedication; all with the same purpose. It’s great to feel the spirit testify of the truths which they so boldly and faithfully share with us.

As you already know for this month we get a new booklet on Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There were so many great quotes …

Nurturing Seed Packets

I love the reminders we get to not only teach and help, our children and those children we come in close contact with, but to “nurture” them. As you all know this month’s message is titled “Our Responsibility to Nurture the Rising Generation.” One of the definitions for the word nurture is: “the sum of the environmental factors influencing the behavior and traits expressed by an organism.” The organism being our “Rising Generation.” We are responsible for surrounding ourselves and our “rising generation” with righteousness, the best music, the best …

Family Temple Trip Car

I love this month’s message about “Our Responsibility to Be Worthy of Temple Worship.” I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and we got to drive to the Atlanta Georgia Temple to be sealed as a family. I cherish that trip and can still remember that day as if it were yesterday but I was 5yrs old then. It’s one of the few things I can remember from before my tween years. I also remember being baptized, the first time I went to the Temple with the Young Women, 2 …
