October is here, and the Visiting Teaching message for the month is to be selected from the special temple issue of the Ensign. I chose a portion of the article by President Monson to share with my sisters.
I loved the story of the grandfather who took his small granddaughter on a special trip to the temple for her birthday. As the young girl placed her hand on the door of the temple, the grandfather told her to, “Remember that this day you touched the temple. One day you will go inside.” President Monson spoke of the appreciation the little girl gained of the temple that day, how, “…she had touched the temple, and the temple had touched her.”
I printed a quote from the article on my handout, underneath a fun dot-to-dot of the Salt Lake temple (found on lds.org). As we touch our dot-to-dot temple, we can reflect on all the ways the temple has touched, and can touch our lives. 🙂
To present my handout, I’ll roll up the paper, slide a homemade flower rubber band around it, and attach a pen and a tag.
I happened to pick up a ton of these little flowers packages at a yard sale, so this is what I used, but you could also buy flowers from a dollar store. Simply disassemble the flower, remove all the plastic pieces, and then sew up with your band and button.
Have a great month, and please share how your visiting teaching goes! Love you all.
