April's Visit Teaching Message

I decided that I am going to start posting about the Visit Teaching Messages and maybe some cute ideas to give the sister's.  So, first of all I know that not everyone knows what visit teaching is.  So I will first explain.  I am a member of  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I am also a member of the Relief Society(group of women) in my ward.  As a Relief Society member I have been asked to visit and to watch over some women (which we call sisters) in our ward.  Each month we have a topic that we are able to discuss and visit with these women about.  We also help each women with any needs they may have.  Really we get to know each other, become friends and watch out for each other.  If you would like to learn more please click on this link.

So, I am a little late this month.  But thought I would post anyways.  This months message is "Temple Covenants". Click here for the full message.

Our prophet, President Monson has taught: "The saving ordinances received in the temple that permit us to someday return to our Heavenly Father in an eternal family relationship and to be endowed with blessings and power from on high are worth every sacrifice and every effort," He further says, “As we remember the covenants we make within [the temple], we will be more able to bear every trial and to overcome each temptation.

Our temples are the most sacred buildings. They are where we make covenants with our Father in Heaven.  A covenant is a two way promise.  That means we promise to do something and the Heavenly Father promises also.  In our temple we are able to be sealed together for all eternity to our families. We do work for those who have passed on and have not had the opportunity to do the work themselves.  

I am grateful for my temple marriage and for the knowledge that I can live with my family for all eternity with our Heavenly Father.  I also, know that I have to keep living worthy of those blessings, that I need to keep my promise so my Father in Heaven can keep his.

So, I gave this little handout to my sister that I found at Pink Polka Dot Creations. Usually, I will make my own, but I was short on time and my husband hadn't put my photo editing software back on the computer yet. I thought these were cute though.  I printed them on photo paper and attached a magnet on the back (my trick is to cut up those advertisement magnets you get and paste them on the back) Then I wrote our information on it (names and phone numbers).  Then they can call us whenever needed.
