January 2018 Home and Visiting Teaching

Image
So it’s a new year, and there are some new changes to the Church of Jesus Christ Relief Society Visiting Teaching program.... and guess what?!? We think it’s awesome! Learning how to SERVE the sisters you have been assigned to will be an opportunity for growth and learning for everyone.  We have been making monthly visiting teaching gifts for over 15 years, and honestly, we don’t want to stop! So we have decided we will continue to make a monthly gift- and we can promise you two things  1- it will always have an uplifting quote and/or message, and 2- it will always be cute enough to give to a friend! And that’s the great thing- since there will be no official message from the church, our gifts will be perfect to give to ANYONE that may need a lift or a word of encouragement. wahoo for spreading joy and light!

Happy New Year!  This month, we have chosen to highlight a talk given by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf in January 2014, entitled "The Best Time to Plant a Tree."  We absol…

November Home and Visiting Teaching Messages

Image
The visiting teaching gift we've created for you this month is really special.  We have chosen five great quotes from the October session of General Conference, and designed each one into a 3.5" x 5" card.  

The quotes that are included: "We must look at others through the eyes of our Savior." - W. Craig Zwick "Changing the world begins with strengthening your own family." - Bonnie L. Oscarson "We cannot control all that happens to us, but we have absolute control over how we respond to the changes."  - W. Christopher Waddell "The greater the light in our lives, the fewer the shadows." - Ian S. Ardern "The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives."  - Russell M. Nelson
Each quote is printed on a beautiful pearl card stock. We've wrapped them all up, added some delicious caramels (made from Utah based company Pioneer Valley), and finished it all of…

October Home and Visiting Teaching Gifts

Fall is in the air and pumpkins adorn porches around our neighborhood's... and the October Visiting Teaching Gifts that we have created for you will fit right in as you go and visit the sisters you are assigned to.  
A pinstriped box is filled with a mixture of caramel and almond chocolate kisses, along with the message from the Ensign.  The tag on the outside says, "Pumpkin Kisses and Warm Fall Wishes - Love from Your Visiting Teachers"
Ribbon may vary from picture but be assured it will always be darling!  



"Becoming True Disciples" is the title of the Home Teaching Message from the October 2017 Ensign.  We have created a gift that includes the full message from the Ensign, a package of pumpkin mellow candies, and the cutest little story about how God helps "carve" us into the disciples He knows we can be.  

Example:  {"Becoming A True Disciple is Like Being a Pumpkin:  God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off of you.…

September 2017 Home and Visiting Teaching Gifts

Image
Our September Visiting Teaching Gift is absolutely stunning  - and the treat that goes along with it is delicious as well!  We have taken a quote from the September message and designed a print you will be able to put into a 5"x7" frame.  (Quote from President Henry B. Eyring "...the Spirit of God never generates contention... it leads to personal peace and a feeling of union with others.")
We've added a small message that says, "Just as the Sunflower follows the Sun, We should also follow the Son, Our Savior Jesus Christ."  And the best part?!  Chocolate covered sunflower seeds! 
The full message from the Ensign is included, and it's all tucked in a cellophane bag and tied off with ribbon.

The gift we have made for your home teaching families this month will surely be a hit!  
We've taken a window sack and filled it with pumpkin spice popcorn, added the message from the Ensign, and a cute tag that says, "Conference is just around the &quo…

August Home and Visiting Teaching

Our August Visiting Teaching Gift is sure to be a great way to show those you visit teach that they are loved.  We have taken the message directly from the Ensign and designed a darling bookmark, complete with rounded edges (we love those little details!).   The message itself is "Living a Consecrated Life" and in it, it reminds us that the "ultimate consecration is yielding up ourselves to God in love and kindness."  
Our message, "It's COOL TO BE KIND" goes along with a delicious "KIND" snack bar (assorted flavors).  All of this is tucked into a homemade pouch complete with a ribbon to make it that much more special! Each gift is designed, created individually, and shipped out directly to your home from our store in Lehi, Utah.  

Our Home Teaching Gift for August will take you back to the days of school... learning about becoming "A Disciples Life"  from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf.  We've included a package of gummy alphabe…
