Patterned after the Priesthood

The Visiting Teaching Message for March is about the Relief Society being organized under the Priesthood and after the pattern of the Priesthood. I scanned a vintage apron pattern, and changed some of the details to quotes and scripture references from the VT message.
You can download the free file for this Visiting Teaching aid here. I printed mine on regular copy paper.
Cut out the pattern envelope and the insert, fold and glue, and you’re on your way.
I loved playing with this pretty little pattern, and hope it helps you to discuss the message with those you visit teach!

  81. Cheryl says:

    Seriously…….so darn cute!!!! I’m going to use these for my Young Women these next few lessons that deal with the Priesthood. I’m hoping they will like them as much as I do. Maybe when I squeal as I show them it will pump them up 🙂

  82. Tamara Guth says:

    Hi, I really like this handout!! I wanted to use the pattern for a Visiting Teaching Conference. Is there a way to get the download so I can make some changes to the words? I was hoping to change it up a little to say “Observe then Serve” which is our theme for our conference. I’d love to use the middle insert as a “guide” for visiting teaching. Listing the guide lines for monthly visits.

  83. Tamara Guth says:

    no problem I just thought I’d check……thanks for the quick response it helps a lot. 🙂

  84. Jennifer says:

    I just wanted to tell you, your work is beautiful and I am very impressed!
    Thank you!
