March Visiting Teaching Message {Bloom}

In March’s message, President Thomas S. Monson encourages us to “reach out and rescue those who need our help and lift them to the higher road and the better way.” He continues, “It is the Lord’s work, and when we are on the Lord’s errand…we are entitled to the Lord’s help.”

We can help our sisters find their way back to the gospel by being a friend and example, and by loving them.  Our love and friendship can help our sisters to BLOOM in the gospel.

P1170689 For the message this month, I created a little booklet with the Visiting Teaching message from the Ensign in it.  I found some cute paper {a regular weight paper folds better than cardstock for this project}, and printed the message, then cut around the outside edge,P1170669

folded along the remaining lines, {if you are using cardstock, fold both directions.  Make sure your creases are sharp}

Fold into a booklet

{I used double stick tape to secure the insides of the book’s pages, but you don’t have to do this step if you don’t want}, attach to skewer or popsicle stick,

P1170683 adorn,

P1170684 and place it into a potted flower.

P1170685 Happy Visiting Teaching!
