For the February 2013 Visiting Teaching Message I took some inspiration from a Valentines Day card, and made friendship bracelets to share with my sisters, alongside some abbreviated quotes:

Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: “Capture the vision that the Relief Society … can become [one of] the most powerful friendshipping resource[s] we have in the Church. Reach out early to those being taught and reactivated, and love them into the Church through your organization.”

“With the ever-increasing number of converts,” said President Gordon B. Hinckley (1910–2008), “we must make an increasingly substantial effort to assist them as they find their way. Every one of them needs three things: a friend, a responsibility, and nurturing with ‘the good word of God’

The three colors in my bracelets are meant to represent the three things mentioned by President Hinckley that converts need to find their way: friendship, responsibilty and nurturing. I used a tutorial to make a fishtail friendship bracelet, but you could go simpler and just make a braided bracelet.

    I love your ideas! What happened to the German translations though? I was so excited to finally find something in German.

      Thanks, June. We have several wonderful ladies doing translations, and some months they are sent to me a little later. Hopefully the German translation will be available soon!

  11. Anne says:

    The English version doesn’t seem to be working. Can it be fixed? I would love to use this for my sisters

    I can’t get the english version to load either. It was working but when I went to print it only a few of the cute boarder dots showed up even though I could see them something was being lost between the computer and the printer. Now I keep getting an error message that the PDF file has failed. Any chance in getting it fixed. This is such a cute idea. I think you are very creative and love seeing all your amazing ideas. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent with us.
