November Home & Visiting Teaching

Image
Visiting Teaching:
Did Octobers General Conference leave anyone else wanting to read more from the scriptures and the prophets? It did us! So this month we created adorable bookmarks with quotes from conference for you and paired it with a (to DIE for) Kara Chocolate bar. Bookmarks and chocolate? There's nothing better! Good luck reading through the Ensign for reminders and new revelations from conference, and happy snacking on that yummy chocolate!


Home Teaching:
Because the Ensign is filled with the talks from October's General Conference, what better time to give you a few new favorites from the new sessions! This festive fall-themed gift is filled with chocolate sixlets for your family to share and five quotes from conference to keep or to share! This gift is the perfect little "something" to drop off to your families before the craziness of the holidays set in to remind them of the beautiful words we received last month. 


MTC Same-Day Delivery - The Ins and Outs of Delivering to your Missionary!

Image
So you have a missionary, do you?  Whether it be your son, daughter, neighbor, friend or a distant relative's 7th cousin - we are here to help you!  We have all the insider's information on how to best send a package to the MTC (Missionary Training Center).  So let's start, shall we?

-There are many Missionary Training Center's (aka MTC) in the world; however, we only deliver to the one here in Provo, Utah.  (What is the Missionary Training Center?  Find out more here.)

-We offer same-day MTC deliveries Monday through Friday, except for major holidays (when the MTC mailroom is closed).  This service is done by MTCdelivery.com (also known as Scoots, Inc).

Pretty legit, right?!
-If you get a package to us by 12:30 pm Monday-Friday, your missionary will get it that SAME DAY!  Doesn't that help ease your mind a little and maybe help him or her feel a tiny bit closer?  We know it's hard to have a loved one "all of a sudden" gone with hardly any contact.

October Home & Visiting Teaching

Image
Fall is here and with that we have created this month's Visiting Teaching Gift so that you and your sisters will be able to add a new decoration to your home.  We have designed a 5"x7" print with the quote "Charity: The Highest, Noblest, Strongest kind of Love."  It will fit perfectly in a frame and is designed with beautiful fall colors.  
The message from the Ensign is entitled, "Divine Attributes of Jesus Christ:  Filled with Charity and Love."  We also loved a quote from President Thomas S. Monson... so we included the full message from the Ensign and high-lighted that quote for your sisters.  (see images)  Of course no Pioneer Party gift is complete without a treat - so a yummy milk chocolate Hershey bar is tucked in as well.  Enjoy the beautiful fall weather and this darling Visiting Teaching Gift!



For October Home Teaching: "Finishing With the Torch Still Lit" is the title of the First Presidency Message for October.  One of the quotes …

Golden Straw Bunting

Image
We came across this gem on Pinterest and just had to share it! Isn't it the cutest? Party decor or year round home decor (I'm thinking my baby girl's nursery?!) it is cheap, easy, and looks fabulous! Head over to oleanderandpalm.com for the full tutorial. 


"Buntings aren't dead yet.  But, I'm trying something a little less country, shabby chic-ish, with this gold straw bunting.  It's light and airy and almost feels like a piece of jewelry for your home.  This Christmas, when we were in Boise, ID, the Anthropology store had a fabulous display made with straws painted gold.  I've been wanting to make a scaled down version for my mantel ever since.  
This simple bunting is season-less and can coordinate with any home decor or party theme.
1. You'll need lots of paper straws.  For each triangle you'll need two full length straws and one half length.  You'll also need some heavy thread or twine and a large needle.
2. Start by threading the needle a…

September Home and Visiting Teaching

Image
The September Visiting Teaching gift is all wrapped up in a brown paper sack with a vintage-looking label that reads, "Women Worldwide can Harvest Christlike Virtues & Partake of the Goodness."  Included in the sack is a delicious and easy Peach Cobbler recipe (only 4 ingredients!), the full message from the Ensign, and a package (2.75 oz) of gummy Peach Rings. Your sisters will love it!



Happy 20th anniversary to the Proclamation to the Family! The theme of this month's message is on prayer and how it can strengthen your family. We are encouraged to pray as a family often, and to read the Proclamation once more this month. 
Inside of this cellophane bag there is a spiral-bound notebook, a copy of President Eyring's message "Family & Prayer," a copy of the Proclamation that can fit in an 8x10 frame, and another copy of the Proclamation that has been studied like we are encouraged to do once more this month. Happy September, and happy 20th to the Proclam…
