Watchcare & Ministering (4×5 cards)

Sister Telisa from Sugar Tot Designs, with everything that’s going on in her life and soon to be mom of 3 boys under 3 (she reminds me of my amazing MIL) has taken the time to design a darling postcard to give or mail to the sisters we visit teach to help remind them of this months Visiting Teaching Message.

We have been approached by yet another very creative and talented sister.

Bow Peep Creations designs amazing products, things for Young Women, Primary, Family Home Evening, Holidays, Kids, Jewelry, and more.

I asked her to tell me why she designed this particular handout. Here is what she …

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.

Daughters in My Kingdom Bookmark

(NOTE: This was designed in Sept 2011 but can be reused this month in 2012 to help enhance your VT message and motivate your sisters to read their wonderful manual/book!)
I’m now the education counselor for our ward’s Relief Society and have been asked to make sure we have enough of the new “Daughters in My Kingdom – The history and work of Relief Society” manuals, as well as make sure each sister gets one. Of course I did cute labels with the sisters names on them and put them on …

Family Home Evening Agenda

I had the pleasure this month of teaching our presidency lesson in Relief Society the 1st week of July. Our Bishop suggested we continue to focus on the family and therefore the lesson was titled, “Family Home Evening.” There is a plethora of information out there, such as; when the Family Home Evening Program was 1st announced (96 years ago, wow we need it more now than ever!), why we need to have FHEs (to stay together), what lessons can be taught (everything!), to be consistent (every week!), to make …

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 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 …
