The Visiting Teaching Message for December is about our responsibility to participate in temple and family history work. I made a paper chain to share with my sisters, with quotes from the message, along with some links for a family pedigree.
You can download the file here. I printed mine on colored construction paper, that I trimmed down to 8.5 x 11.
If you assemble your sisters’ paper chains during your visit, you will want to bring the links, a pen, and some adhesive. You could ask your sisters to fill in their generations as best they can while you introduce the message and explain the significance of the chain.
You can then link the chain together while discussing the different quotes.
Alternate the message links with the pedigree links, so they end up on the same side. You will also want to make sure the print is all faced in the same direction (so some links aren’t upside-down). You could also assemble your own chain before your visits to show your sisters, and then give them the unassembled version to complete on their own.
I’ve enjoyed thinking about this message the last few weeks, and hope you have great experiences discussing it with the sisters you visit teach. Happy Holidays to you all!
I Love this idea! Plus my ladies all think I'm amazing when I bring them your amazing handouts, but we always let them know we are just good at finding things on-line! Thank you for sharing such a fun idea to help get our families excited for family history!
Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [28 Nov 01:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria
