April 2013 Visiting Teaching Message Printable: English & Portuguese

UPDATE 4/8/13: The Portuguese version is now ready! It's just below the English version. And I have also included a larger version for those that need larger print or if you would like to use it as a poster/sign. :)

Sorry for the lack of ideas recently. For Spring Break my family and I drove down to Texas to visit my family.I thought I would have time to sit and relax and share some ideas, but we have been going, going, going. We are so tired, but we have had so much fun.

Blessings Mix - Thanksgiving Theme

Ruth G. shared this activity idea her girls did in November: "We did this for a Beehive activity the month of November for the girls...they were asked to prayerfully think of someone they could give their bags to. Just print out these tags, layer or mix all of the ingredients into a cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon and tag."

This would make a cute Visiting Teaching handout, too.

4 per page, 8.5 x 11 inches, color.

The author, Mary C., gave our Relief Society president a copy, who then gave it to me.

Basically, 3 sisters act out short parts as Telestial, Terrestrial, and Celestial Visiting Teachers. Hilarious! Can be done with as few as 3 people, up to as many as you want. Requires very few props and no costumes (unless you want to have some adults dress up in children's clothing).

Chicken Soup Get Well Soon Verse Bag Tag

I made this little bag tag for a less active sister I visit teach who was ill. I attached this verse, which reads "Chicken soup and something sweet.... soon you will have this illness beat!" and tied it to a gift bag with a piece of ribbon. Inside I put a can of chicken soup, some of those dried apple crisps, pretzels, and a Jello fruit cup.

This tag has space at the top for a ribbon or bow, and space at the bottom for names.

Christmas Star Poem

This poem can be used with a star-shaped ornament, cookies, or any other star gift for the hoidays.

Christmas Star
A diamond shines no brighter
than that lovely Christmas star.
It shines in all its brilliance;
it's seen from near or far.
A symbol of the Christ child
as He lay upon the hay,
It tells to all the waiting world
a King was born that day.

DeFord Music

Sally DeFord has a crazy huge list of totally free LDS sheet music for use in your Christmas or Easter choir presentation, Young Women's activity, Enrichment meeting, or virtually any other type of LDS activity. You can search by topic (including "easy for choirs"), and many of the songs have MP3s you can download to hear or practice. Sally has my personal favorite-of-all-time arrangement of "Come, Thou Font of Every Blessing" on her website. Sally's talent for music blesses the lives of so many!

FHE in a Jar

Print out the pages, cut out the strips, and place them in a jar or small box. When you're in need of a quick Family Home Evening lesson, pull one out, and voila!

I think FHE-in-a-jar would make a great visit-teaching or home teaching gift, or even an LDS Young Women or LDS Primary activity (have the children cut out the strips and decorate the jar or box). - Jenny

This handout would make a good Visiting Teaching Halloween handout. This is the poem on the card:

    Since this is the time for goblins and bats,

    Weird happenings and witches brew,
    These are the thing we wish for you:

    May the only ghost that comes to stay,
    Be the Holy Ghost to guide your way.
    May the only spirits you chance to meet,
    Be the spirits of love and warm friendship sweet.

"When you are sad.....I will dry your tears.
When you are scared.....I will comfort your fears.
When you are worried.....I will give you hope.
When you are confused.....I will help you cope.

And when you are lost....And can't see the light,
I shall be your beacon.....Shining ever so bright.
This is my oath.....I pledge till the end.
Why you may ask?.....Because you're my friend. "

Temple Box

This temple box makes a great handout or visual aid for many different lessons.

Print the image on cardstock (If you use your printer's "best" ink setting, the moisture in the ink will cause the paper to soften where the ink is heaviest, making it EASY to fold straight lines.)

Fold the flaps, and fold along the walls, floor, and ceiling to form a box.

As Sisters in the Gospel

We go and sit a spell
And occasionally dwell
On things not going swell

At the sight of the broom
And that room...

We do not preach
But talk and teach
And listen to the children screech
