Visiting Teaching and Home Teaching

A couple weeks ago, a member of my ward's Elders quorum presidency, made an announcement in Relief Society.  This man is such a handsome man, not to mention a very good man, and every woman's eyes were on him as he made his announcement, or should I say "plea".  He asked the sisters to help their husband in their assignments to get their home teaching done.  He mentioned that we know how to do it because the women in our ward get the job done, but the men need some help.  My husband isn't an Elder, but I knew that I could do something to help the other men in the ward with their home teaching, much like in the ways that I try to encourage and help the women to do theirs, through this blog.  So... here you go... this is for the Elders, High Priests, and Relief Society Sisters alike.  Here are some cute door hangers, to remind the families that you visit of what shepherding is all about, from the master shepherd.  The other hanger reminds us through the words of our Prophet, about the true spirit of Christmas.  The other ones, are some that I came up with that I thought would be fun to give out as well.  MERRY CHRISTMAS and go out and get your Home teaching, and Visiting Teaching Done!  Your families are waiting!
These are intended to be printed out on an 8.5 x 11 piece of white card stock or photo paper.  Right click, save to your computer and print from your computer. 
Enjoy!  Katie G

The Good Shepherd

Merry Christmas, and I pray for each of you that as you follow the example of Jesus Christ, our Good Shepherd, that you too will draw in the sheep that are not of this fold, or those that are, and let them feel of your kindness and love.  Serve them, love them, do as He did and become their Shepherd.  Let your kindness not only last throughout this glorious Christmas season, and throughout the entire year.  The job of Shepherding is never over, because there will always be sheep who will stray, or need you to draw them in with your friendship.  Find them, let them know your voice and serve as Visiting Teaching shepherds.  Best wishes, Katie G

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.
