September 2015 Visiting Teaching Message

The attribute of Jesus Christ that the visiting teaching message discusses this month is "Powerful and Full of Glory."

Photo:  The face of the Christus statue, with the caption: "The Savior uses His power to redeem and empower us."


I love this idea.  I know that when I am actively working on strengthening my faith, I feel empowered.  I am better able to deal with the frustrations of life and I am better able to accomplish the tasks of the day.  Not only does the Savior help me in the future, He helps me in the present.  


One place where I can always feel close to Jesus Christ is in the temple.  For the handout this month, I decided to take the photo above, print it on vellum paper, and attach it (using small white brads) to a photo of a temple (which was printed on photo paper.)

If you would like to use this idea, you are free to right-click on the Christus photo and save it to your computer.  Then print it as two 4x6s on a sheet of vellum paper.  You could use any 4x6 photo of a temple as a background.  You are also welcome to use the one I used:

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Last Two Weeks

  Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park, as viewed from an overlook I apologize for not commenting on your blog posts this past week; John and I took a vacation to Yellowstone National Park, leaving behind our computers and, to a large extent, cell phone service. We escaped the outside world and just spent time in nature. Though we have friends near Yellowstone (who we love to visit) we made this trip just about us, so please forgive us if we were nearby and didn't stop by. The crowds were minimal (though we did mask up whenever we passed someone on the trails) and we spent our days hiking, taking photos, and watching geysers erupt. Today, we are back home and back to work, and, in the case of my computer, back to old shenanigans like not letting me import my photos. (I was able to add the above photo by using blogger on my phone, but that isn't my preferred method.) I want to write about Yellowstone and have photos I want to share, but will leave that for another
