September 2016

I am in a singles ward. Some of the women in the ward have children (either grown children or children who do not live with them). My visiting teachees do not have kids.  So I left a note that said, "The lesson this month is on parenting, which requires children, so . . . ."

Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. (Psalms 127:3)

Anything fruity will do for a gift--fruit, juice, candy, gum, etc.

"Making and keeping covenants means choosing to bind ourselves to our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ." -Linda K. Burton

The gift is something binding--like dollar store rope.

February 2016

It looks like the theme this year is the Family Proclamation.  Hopefully that means I can come up with ideas quicker.  It's also going to be a little difficult for me to come up with quotes to go with each month--I may need a separate one for my mom's visiting teachees and one for mine, since mine are not married.

That said, I don't know what quote to put with this.  But I figured Valentine's Day went with marriage, so just talk to your sisters about how great marriage is and give them a love-themed gifty.

 For this one, I printed the Family Proclamation in 4"x6" size on vellum.  Then I bought a picture of Christ and cut it down to 4"x6" as well.  Then frame it with the proclamation in front of the picture.
The message that goes with this one is that no matter what your circumstances, you are a member of God's family.

Unlock your heart!

“The Savior has always shown unlimited capacity for compassion. . . . Let us open the door of our hearts, that He—the living example of true compassion—may enter.”
--Thomas S. Monson

Any key will work, but it'd be cool to get a key with a heart shape for the top.
