I am so happy to be back today sharing the March 2015 Visiting Teaching printable!
What is Visiting Teaching?
First of all, let me explain visiting teaching. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, we are in a congregation where we are asked to go and visit certain ladies each month to really get to know them, share a quick message and find out if they have any needs that need to be met. It’s one of the ways we build friendships and help our leaders know any needs that families have. (There would be too many for them to visit them all!) So why do I love printables + visiting teaching? I LOVE putting to paper thoughts and quotes that inspire and uplift me, my family and those around me and visiting teaching has been such a blessing in my life. I have met so many incredible women who have blessed my life through both visiting teaching and being taught as well! I love the thought of leaving a little thought for them to hang up and think about throughout the month.
For those of you who aren’t members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I hope you can use these quotes and scriptures as well. Most of the subjects are universal Christian subjects and the quotes and scriptures are inspiring and helpful for everyone!
This Month’s Message:
This month’s message is titled The Attributes of Jesus Christ: Long-Suffering and Patient. I don’t know about you, but as a mother of 5 incredibly wonderful kids and a wife to a sweet and kind husband (who is serving as the bishop to our congregation right now), I feel like patience is one of my greatest strengths AND weaknesses. Do you ever feel like that? I think I can hold my life together pretty darn great for hours and days on end, but sometimes it is also the greatest weakness I have. AND it is the one thing I always feel like I am working on. I love how Elder Uchtdorf explains what patience is:
“Patience means accepting that which cannot be changed and facing it with courage, grace, and faith. It means being ‘willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon [us], even as a child doth submit to his father’. Ultimately, patience means being ‘firm and steadfast, and immovable in keeping the commandments of the Lord’ every hour of every day, even when it is hard to do so.”
I have so far to go, but I appreciate the push to really look at where I am at and strive to do better.
Have a great March!
