VISITING TEACHING GIFT

 This month's Visiting Teaching Gift is perfect for the holiday season.  We've taken a little black box and filled it with the message (of course!) from the Ensign, along with two Lindor chocolate balls (milk chocolate and caramel assorted), wrapped in a piece of tissue paper.  



The box is beautifully tied with decorative ribbon and a tag that says "Men Are That They Might Have Joy" - a reference from the message. 




HOME TEACHING


A message of Peace from the First Presidency is tucked in a brown paper sack - filled with hot cocoa packets - to remind your families to feel the Warmth of the Savior's Spirit this holiday season. 




Buy online here or in store! Have a Merry Christmas!

November Visiting Teaching Gifts

Fall is definitely here and with that brings leaves, a chill in the air - and baking warm dishes in the kitchen!  So while you get your apron out and finalize your menu for Thanksgiving... think about the words of the prophets from the October General Conference.  
We've gathered a few of our favorite quotes and typed up a little menu to share with your sisters... complete with appetizers and dessert.  A chocolate "Cup of Gold" candybar is tucked in the apron so while you read and ponder, you can fill up your belly as well!  The tag on the front of our apron reminds us to "Add the Words of the Prophets to Your Thanksgiving Menu"

September Home & Visiting Teaching

Fall is in the air and this gift is wearing all the right colors!  A small bag of delicious peach rings (the best tasting around!) is tucked in a cute little pouch along with a "Peach Delight" recipe card and, of course, the message from the September Ensign.  


Let your sisters know they're "just peachy" with this darling gift that is ready to give!




The September Home Teaching message is a must read!  The title is, "First Love, Then What?" by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.  


We've packaged some of our favorite tootsie roll flavors - mango and green apple - in a brown paper sack (with a detailed top) and added a ribbon and tag so your gift is ready to go!  Enjoy visiting this month!

August Home and Visiting Teaching

"Families CAN be together forever" - is the message displayed on our darling Home Teaching Gift this August.  



We have made a darling wrap to go around a can of Pringles potato chips.  The message from the Ensign (written by President Henry B. Eyring entitled "The Hope of Eternal Family Love") is included.  A perfect gift to take to your home teaching families!  





Summer is on its way out, which brings everything "back to school" themed - notebooks included!  The August Visiting Teaching message is about "nurturing families" and we loved how the message pointed out that "one of the best ways to invite love and harmony into our homes is by speaking kindly to our family members."  



We decided to create a "family journal" notebook - in hopes that it can be left out for everyone in the family to see and use often.  Grab it anytime, write down something nice  about your child, spouse, or siblings.  


Read the journal often to uplift yourself and each other!  Comes with a laffy taffy candy as well as the full message from the Ensign.  





Come visit us in the store or buy online here!
