August Home and Visiting Teaching

Image
Who doesn't need a little extra "power" in their life? Our August Visiting Teaching Gift will give you just that! With a Power Performance Energy Bar, a print of the full message from the Ensign (Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ: Meek and Humble), a bookmark highlighting one of the quotes from the message, and a tag on the outside that says, "Humility & Meekness = Power" - you will be all set to visit teach!  

The quote on the bookmark is "Being meek does not mean weakness, but it does mean behaving with goodness and kindness, showing strength, serenity, healthy self-worth, and self-control. As we work to develop this attribute, we will find that “humbly submitting our will to the Father brings us the empowerment of God—the power of humility. It is the power to meet life’s adversities, the power of peace, the power of hope, the power of a heart throbbing with a love for and testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ, even the power of redemption." - Eld…

S'more Pie Pops

Image
A s’more is a quintessential summer dessert. This pie pops recipe captures the goodness of s’mores in a flaky pie crust! (via The Gunny Sack)



With the arrival of warm weather, everyone wants to be outside. While I was driving around this weekend, I smelled so many bonfires. My nephew was super excited to report that they had their first campfire of the year. S’mores are the summer desserts that go hand in hand with fires. All summer long, we have graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars on hand so that we are ready when the mood strikes. This S’more Pie Pops Recipe has a flaky pie crust instead of the graham crackers. I though about putting a graham cracker inside each pie on a stick but my kids didn’t want me to so I left them out.


Cut a 4.4 oz XL Hershey’s chocolate bar into segments.

Unroll a premade Pillsbury pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Cut the pie crust circle into a rectangle and cut out six rectangles of dough using the Hershey’s bar pieces as a guide for the…

July Home and Visiting Teaching Gifts

Image
It's all about being patriotic with this month's visiting teaching gift. We've taken a bandana (red/blue assorted), and wrapped up the message from the Ensign, a package of Twizzlers, and a cute "10 Ways to Use a Bandana" handout!  Jute twine ties it all together with a tag that reads, "A Packet of Red, White, and Blue For You." You can always add a personalized note and tuck it in with the other handouts to personalize.

The home teaching message in July is entitled, "All is Well," and written by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf. We have created a 5"x7" print (that looks great in a frame for a July home decoration) that reads, "All is Well, All is Well" (quoting the popular Pioneer Song "Come, Come, Ye Saints" - Hymn no 30). The full message from the Ensign, as well as a gourmet package of nuts & chocolate is also included.

Summer Party & BBQ ideas!

Image
1. Create festive party lanterns for any season. Count the bulbs on a strand of holiday lights and cut X's into the bottoms of the same numer of small cups. Then push a bulb through each cup's center and hang the string from a doorway or window. (idea from Real Simple)


2. Grill smores on the BBQ! Get waffle ice cream cones, fill with marshmallows, chocolate chips, bananas, strawberries, or any other thing you can think of, wrap in aluminum foil, and throw on the grill for a few minutes to melt. YUM!! (credit)


3. Make a squirt gun station. It is HOT. And DRY. And if you have kids coming, you need this. Between the BBQ, tiki lamps, fireworks, and the blazing sun, the kiddos (and adults) are sure to get hot. Cool them down and let them have a ton of fun! Simply fill a bucket or cooler with water, grab a 10 pack of squirt guns at the dollar store, and let the good times happen! (via First Home Love Life)


4. Store your fruits/salads in a jar. You won't have to worry about bugs or …

Our June Visiting Teaching Gift is filled to the brim with cuteness! 



You will get a clear plastic cup filled with the message from the Ensign, a handful of opalescent frizzies, two flavored drink packets (ready to mix into water), a huckleberry candy stick, and of course ribbon and a little handmade love mixed in. We invite all sisters to "Sip in the Savior's Sweetness" as they read about another one of His divine attributes.







Our June Home Teaching Gift will not only make your job a little easier - you'll look good doing it, too! 


We've taken a theatre sized box of Good and Plenty's, wrapped it in a lime green chevron printed bag, added the message from the Ensign, and a tag that says, "Building GOOD relationships with your family will bring PLENTY of Eternal Blessings." The message from the Ensign is titled, "Families Can Be Together Forever"
