Sunday Musings of the Spirit: Visiting Teaching Message November 2012

I loved Elder M. Russell Ballard's talk from General Conference earlier this month, and knew that I wanted to share part of it with the sisters I visit teach. 

Elder Ballard taught us about honeybees, and how each bee makes about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey during its lifetime.  That is not very much!  When that little drop of honey is joined with the honey from the other bees, however, the results are significant.  We can be like the bees.

The handout printed on a 4x6 sheet of photo paper, but trimmed down to about 2x3.  I attached it to a little jar of honey.  I found the empty containers in 4-packs at Walmart in the kitchen section, and I just filled them with honey I had at home.  The cute beehive graphic came from the graphics fairy.


 
 




If you have time, you might want to watch this video of Elder Ballard's address.  While I enjoy reading the General Conference talks, being able to see and hear the delivery seems to add something to the message. 




Thanks for small acts of service.
