March Visiting Teaching Message: Created in the Image of God

I love the visiting teaching message for this month.  The full lesson can be found here, but the basic message is that God is actually, truly our Heavenly Father, and we are created in His image.  It's one of the first things we read in the book of Genesis in the Bible: 
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. …
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:26–27)
Man was made to look like God, which makes sense;  children take after their parents.

He has eyes with which to see our actions.  He has a mouth with which to speak to us.  He has a heart with which to feel compassion and love.  He is real.  He is living.  We are his children made in his image.  We look like him and he looks like us.--President Thomas S. Monson"
