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.
These are what those nugget chocolates look like if you don’t remember. (Let’s hope the candy is on sale because Easter has passed.)

Read the B.O.M. in 30 days & Win!

No Joke! This month’s Visiting Teaching message encourages us to read the scriptures more and make them part of our daily lives. I’ll be the first to admit I sometimes skip a day or two or three and those are the days satan starts to creep in and weaken me. So, for this month I want to read the Book of Mormon in 30 days by April 30th! I haven’t ever read the BOM that fast before nor have I even read it as many times as I’m sure you …

This month’s Visiting Teaching message to Search the Scriptures Diligently is great! I’m sure most of us could spend a little more one on one time with our scriptures, especially me. I’m glad I get to find fun and creative ways to motivate myself and others to read and search the scriptures more.

Here’s a cute mini Treasure Chest Printable which includes just a few reasons taken from the message which tells us why we should “treasure” the scriptures.
