April 2010 Visiting Teaching Handout

OOOPSIES!!!!  Thanks to a reader, who pointed out that I had attributed the quote on this handout to the wrong person... it has now been changed and proper credit is now given to President Boyd K. Packer for his wonderful quote in this months visiting teaching lesson...... Now... read on......
If you will go and read the message on LDS.org you will find out that the April 2010 message is on Seeking and Receiving Personal Revelation.  I wrote a story about my daughter and granddaughter that goes well with this message on my other blog at this link http://visitingteachingtips.blogspot.com  The quote that I used to make this bookmark handout comes from President Boyd K. Packer that says "Prayer is your personal key to heaven.  The lock is on your side of the veil".  Don't you love that quote?  To me it means it is up to us and we hold the key to personal revelatio and communication with the Lord.  Once we insert the key into the keyhole, we unlock the door to the inspiration and guidance we seek.  Heavenly Father is willing to provide it to us, but He will never force it upon us, so we need to exercise the key we are given, which is prayer, and ask for His guidance and divine intervention in our lives.


Bookmark:   The top page is obviously side one and the next page is the paper to print on the backside of the bookmark.  I always print on white cardstock and then I cut them out and laminate them.  They turn out very nice this way!  This beautiful paper came from veralimdesign and the pack is called "Grateful".  I just love these wonderful designers that share their paper creations with all of us!  Here is one little tip from me... you can buy a ream of white cardstock at Walmart for cheap and it will last you through so many printings.  I can run this weight of cardstock through my personal HP photosmare inkjet printer, as well as my husbands big color lasar printer.  It looks best in lasar though, especially if you don't laminate them. 

Hope you will take advantage of this freebie from me to take with youVisiting Teaching this month. 
Enjoy!  Katie G.

That's great! Thanks for this. Sometimes it helps to have a little something for the first time you meet a new sister.

I love your handout but it was Boyd K. Packer who gave that quote instead of Robert D. Hales. Just thought you would like to know.

Thanks DeEtta, for pointing out my mistake. Like I said before, I just need an extra set of eyes to get everything right. The bookmark has now been changed and President Packer gets proper recognition.

Thanks for this beautiful handout!! I really needed it!!

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 http://visitingteachingtips.blogspot.com/ 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.
