You Deserve So Much More

"Sometimes God doesn't give you what you think you want, not because you don't deserve it, but because you deserve so much more."

A Twinkle, A Smile and Great Purpose

"Go forward with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart."
Gordon B. Hinckley
(and doesn't this quote pretty much sum up the man?)

December 2011 Visiting Teaching Message - An Extensive Sphere of Action

The VT message for December 2011, is called An Extensive Sphere of Action, (PDF version HERE)
***I will add more VT ideas as I get them***

There are three versions of each quote, just click on the image you want to download for free (should print out to 4x6)

I had seen this and thought this would be a great idea. As the message is about our Sphere of Action as sisters being great, this would be a cute way to reinforce the message, by getting a glass ornament and inserting a picture (if you have one) of your sister into the middle of the 'sphere', get it:), you could jazz it up with some beads, like this one, flowers/leaves/ candy/ribbons/strips of paper etc., whatever you fancied. You could even print out your testimony, little scroll style, and insert that.

I also thought this would be cute with a picture of the Savior inside, because really, He is at the center of all we do. I've included some images below that would be cute inside, but you can also just google 'Savior' to find other images. Just right click on these to copy to your computer.

This is a washcloth/flannel, with a bar of soap inside
Poem says: "Everyone loves this time of year, all the laughter and good cheer, A season that is full of hope, And a reindeer that's a flannel and a bar of soap."

How to Feel Rich

"If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money cannot buy."

Appreciating What We Have

"We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing & appreciating what we do have."

Tuesday Tell All - Expressing Thanks

"Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at east we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so let us all be thankful."

I would like to do something a little different today... I love this quote because it's a great reality check that we ALL have something we can be grateful for, every single day. I thought it would be fun to see how many things that we can list for which we are grateful for. If you have a Facebook account leave a comment on todays post with what you're grateful for, and if you don't have one, leave one on this blog post, 
'so let us all be thankful'.
