it was home and visiting teachers that reached out to my inactive family when i was in grade school. they did the things that home and visiting teachers are called to do. i love that it wasn't just about numbers or visits. they truly cared and loved and served my family. they were responsible for reactivating my parents at a time in their lives when they were searching for answers and peace in a troubled world. then when i was 11 years old i was privelaged to be sealed to my family for time and eternity. that memory is priceless to me. at just 11 years old i gained a testimony and understood that families could be together forever. and because of my parents experience, visiting teaching is a sacred calling to me.

What I love about visiting teaching is the relationships that can be built. My mom is still friends with an old visiting teaching companion from 15 years ago! When the Spirit is there barriers can be dropped and the ability to really get to know each other is amazing.

I am a new convert. My entire family, there are five of us, was baptized March 17, 2007 and we were sealed in the Temple April 4, 2008. Our journey as been amazing. My children and my husband have all embraced the Gospel and we are thriving. My first Visting Teacher was such an important part of our conversion. I am now a Visiting Teacher and I have enjoyed the relationships that I am developing with the Sisters that I visit teach. At first I felt so inferior to these women who have been lifetime members of the Church. What could I teach them? Well, I discovered that we are suppose to learn from each other and it has been a wonderful experience. The Visiting Teacher messages from HandPicked Daisy are amazing and I feel so confident when I go visit with each Sister with such a wonderful message in such a beautiful package. Thank you. Belinda

I LOVE V.T! It is so amazing to get to know someone through visiting teaching and a wonderful friendship can be build on the faith and love of the Savior. Its wonderful. When you visit teach with love, it shows what the true love of Christ can feel to someone, esp. those less active. Its a wonderful blessing to be able to do each month!

How do you choose just one thing you love about visiting teaching? Us girls love to visit. Heavenly Father made us that way. So He also had to give us an opportunity to serve amid our love of just hangin' with the girls. Isn't is wonderful to see His love for us shown in the simpleness of how well He knows his daughters? I love your fun kits! Thank you for your inspiration.

Your little gifts are the cutest things ever!! I love Visiting Teaching because when I turned 18, I had 2 young moms assigned to me. They were such great examples and I couldn't wait to be a wife and mom like them. They never forgot about me and knew everything going on in my life. It was the greatest feeling ever knowing these 2 ladies who were in a totally different place in life still cared about me. Almost 10 years later I never miss a month of visiting teaching because I have always wanted to be as wonderful as they were to me!!!

One Sassy Princess said...

Visiting teaching has not always been my cup of tea. Moving into a new place and not knowing anyone...I realized what visiting teaching can really do. I have made some great friends and in turn have tried emulate the same to others when I visit them. I have found that true friendship can come out of stepping out of my comfort zone and enveloping those around me to feel the love and support the Savior has for each of us---with open and welcoming arms.

I was never a big fan of Visiting Teaching until I lived it Denton Texas and I had a Visiting Teacher I couldn't avoid. We ended up being best friends and had our first babies in the same hospital, on the same day, with the same Doctor, just one hour apart from each other. We have both moved since then but still keep in tounch with each other and that was over four years ago. Now I really know the importance of visiting other sisters and the I appreciate the strong bonds of friendship it develops. I look forward to visit with my visiting teachers and love visiting with my girls.

I can't help but be grateful for the perspectives gained when visiting different sisters. It helps me to be more compassionate and understanding. The testimonies and experiences of my companion and the different sisters I visit, young and old, strengthen and deepen my own commitment to the gospel. I have even been assigned to a sister who is not a member of the church but who attends faithfully with her husband. I can see the small ways that Heavenly Father prepares His children to recieve the gospel and the huge role that member missionary work plays in that. It has taught me patience as well and to be open and willing to share the gospel without being afraid, but without being pushy either. I am so grateful for the inspired institution of Visiting Teaching!

I love to go visiting teaching, I am always looking for cute things to bring my sisters each month. I try to bring them something that goes along with the lesson. VT brings us closer to each other.

Misty said...

I am trying so hard to be a good visiting teacher. It is so incredibly hard for me to do. So, I'm looking at your sight for some ideas. I just found it, but I'm loving it so far. www.littlelambertgazette.blogspot.com

The "Eck's" Files said...

I love these, as I have inactive women who refuse to answer the door. But like any woman--we like fun, cute, meaningful things! So, I use these to help leave the message on their doorstep and hope that one day they will be more open to a discussion, instead of just a ring and drop visit. Thank you!!

I love meeting new women in the church. Being in primary I don't get the chance to visit with many sisters. Visiting Teachers are there when you need them.

I haven't been a big fan of VT until I had a sister come into my house that showed such love to me and my family. Even now when our ward boundaries have changed she still reaches out to us.

since i had my baby, brigham i have not recieved an "official" calling yet....so unlike before, i am taking visiting teaching very seriously--that is my calling. All of our callings! I enjoy meeting with my sisters, and actually have made myself the "unofficial" visiting teacher for my inactive sister-in-law. the august kit that i bought was actually sent to her. i love your work, its beautiful and thoughtful--helping the cause! thank you!

Hill said...

I love doing my visiting teaching. When I moved my visiting teacher made feel me so welcomed and loved, So I try my best to do the same.

Kristy said...

I am a Relief Society President and a Visiting Teacher, and I love both my callings. When I came across your blog site, I just knew it was something I would love. I'm always looking for ways to uplift and encourge the sister's in my ward. Visiting Teaching is so important to me personaly and as a RS Pres. This is our one way of finding out who a sister is outside of church. Friendships grow and blossom. Sometimes there is heartache and pain but always there is Faith and love of our Savior. I truely love my visiting teachers, and the love and spirit they bring to my home. I wish everyone could know the true purpose and power of Visiting Teaching.

Tammy said...

I love your blog and the wonderful ideas. I put your cute tag on my personal blog.

You make me want to go out Visiting. Thanks for sharing.

The Lauper Family said...

I am a firm believer, through experience, that a person doesn't need a lot of friends, but a person does need one good friend. After graduating from college, my husband and I moved to Northern California. I was so nervous about making new friends and being so far away from our family and longtime friends. I prayed that I would make one new friend. Alas, my prayers were answered, not the way I expected. Two sweet visiting teachers came to my home faithly. From that, a deep and lasting friendship was made. It has been over 8 years and I am still very close to my once Visiting Teacher. Since that time, we've moved back to Southern California. I've transitioned into a new wards and friendships. I can honestly say that so many lasting friendships have been formed because of my visiting assignments. I love your kits because VTing can be mundane to some. I, personally, enjoy it and I love bringing something a "little extra special" to the women I visit with. I just recently moved into a new ward, so I can't wait to order your September kit and introduce myself with a new "little something extra" message. Good luck with your endeavors. Your ideas are great and DARling!

I tried to get the button on my blog and must be dumb becuase I can't get it to work but, visiting teaching has been such a blessing in my life. My testimony has grown because of the sisters that I visit. My companion and I though not the best try to go every month and I think that I get more out of it then they do, I strive to be stonger woman in the church and through visiting teaching it is helping me to get there. I feel blessed everytime I go and everytime my visiting teachers come to my home as well.

What I love about visiting teaching is the feeling that you know someone is thinking of you. You don't realize how much you miss that feeling until you go along time without a visiting teacher. I hope that when I do my visiting teaching my girls realize how much I care for them and think about them! LOVE your stuff!

I have to admit, that for years, I didn't see the point of Visiting Teaching. I saw it as a chance to gossip, or simply waste time trying to get ahold of sisters, who obviously didn't want to be bothered with it, just like me. Then, I was assigned a Visiting Teacher who understood the true spirit of Visiting Teaching. She didn't come visit with me because she had to, I could tell that she genuinely cared about me and what was going on in my life. I found myself looking forward every month to her visits and knowing that I would feel buoyed up when she had gone. I learned from her that Visiting Teaching can be a divine calling if we are willing to put forth the effort and I now try to put that effort in my visits.

I love VTing... VTing lets us have much needed girl time to share and grow in the gospel. I have lived in 5 ward in 5 years and VTing has always been there for me.

and let's face it we can't all be good at everything, nor do we have the time to make such cute take-alongs. THAT'S why we all have different talents to share with others.

Erin said...

I have never really wanted to do my visiting teaching (I know it's awful!) I think I was moreso just scared that I would be bad at it or something, but this blog has helped me to want to do it, and know I can do it well. Thanks.

Nick & Lynnie said...

I am always so happy and on the biggest 'spiritual high' after I go visiting teaching. I don't really know if I can pinpoint what it is. I love the chance to meet together with great girls who have the same beliefs and values as me and to get to talk about everything, both churchy stuff and non-churchy stuff. I also love the idea that every sister in the ward is watched out for and cared about. love it!
