July 2014 Visiting Teaching- LDS

Before I share the VT handout for this month, have you seen the video message from Bonnie L. Oscarson, the Young Women General President?  It is lovely, compassionate, and perfectly timed.   I have to say that I am ever so grateful, especially lately, for wise leaders and the guidance and comfort they give.

And now onto this month’s message!  July’s Visiting Teaching message is called The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Advocate.  In the message we also read about Esther from the Old Testament, and how she was an advocate for her people.  I was especially drawn to the line from her uncle Mordecai “And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”  It made me stop and ponder why I am here in the Lord’s kingdom, and what He would have me do.

Here is the handout for this month!

June 2014 Visiting Teaching

The Visiting Teaching Message for this month is called The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Minister and reminds us of our ability to be instruments in the hands of the Lord and follow His example as we serve those around us.  One of the quotes I really loved is from David L. Beck, “Heavenly Father will guide you, and angels will assist you.  You will be given power to bless lives and rescue souls.”

May 2014 Visiting Teaching

May is one of my favorite months to create a visiting teaching handout because it gives me the opportunity to look through all the General Conference talks from April and then choose one of my favorites to share.  It is always hard to choose, because let’s face it, all the talks are wonderful, but I particularly enjoyed Elder Holland’s talk The Cost- and Blessings- of Discipleship.    I love the firm, strong, and yet loving and kind way he bears his testimony and exhorts us to do the same.  If you get a chance I highly encourage you to go back and read his talk.

In the meantime here is the handout I created for you to take or mail to the ladies you visit teach.

March Visiting Teaching- LDS

The message for March is called The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Light of the World.   I particularly enjoyed this quote from Elder Quentin L. Cook, “We need to protect our families and be at the forefront together with all people of goodwill in doing everything we can to preserve light, hope, and morality in our communities.”  It’s a powerful responsibility.

Here is the handout for the month!

February Visiting Teaching- LDS

We’ve just about made it through the first month of the year which means February is right around the corner.  The visiting teaching message for February is called The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Good Shepherd.

“I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. … And I lay down my life for the sheep” (John 10:14–15)

This month’s handout includes a beautiful quote from President Monson reminding us of our responsibility to care for the Savior’s flock around us.

January Visiting Teaching

It is the beginning of another year of visiting teaching messages!  I honestly cannot thank you enough for all the emails and comments you have sent telling me how much you enjoy/use the handouts.  As someone who hasn’t always been the best visiting teacher in the past you have really inspired me to do better.  And I love creating these prints and sharing them with all of you.  So thank you!

January’s message is called The Divine Mission of Jesus Christ: Exemplar and you can read the entire message here.
