Teach the Children

I have finally completed the pages for the story that my family calls.."The Christmas Symbols", but is taken from the story "Teach the Children". This has been a family tradition since I was a child to do in a Family Christmas program on either Family Home Evening or on Christmas Eve. I have lots of fond memories of all the different Christmas Symbols. My suggestion is to download each picture and save on your computer to a file. Then open up your desktop publishing program or it might even work in MS Word. and size them to an 8 x 8 inch page. Print them off (best quality is on Photo paper or 2 sided brochure paper)and cut to size and slip them into an 8 x 8 inch scrapbook album. You can get these at Michael's, JoAnns, Roberts and other craft & scrapbook stores. Enjoy this tradition.

These are absolutely beautiful! We are surprising a needy family in our neighborhood with 12 days of Christmas and this story is what we decided to do for day 1. I was going to design my own until I found yours. They are gorgeous and really bring out the Spirit. Thank You for all your hard work and for sharing it with everyone. God Bless you and Merry Christmas.

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
