September Visiting Teaching Message

Our message this month is on becoming more spiritually and temporally self-reliant.

Elder Robert D. Hales explained, “The purpose of both temporal and spiritual self-reliance is to get ourselves on higher ground  so that we can lift others in need.”

How do we become more self-reliant?  Some ideas were to become educated, avoid debt and live within our means.  To become spiritually self-reliant, we must live our covenants, be worthy of a temple recommend, serve others and worthily partake of the sacrament.

P1180963For the message this month, I printed the message on some fun autumny paper {I got mine at The Wood Connection in American Fork} and made a printable of the principles of self-reliance that are listed in the Ensign.

To assemble this for your sisters, you will need a 12x12 sheet of paper that is printed on both sides.

Fold the bottom of the paper up about 4 inches till it looks like this, then fold it the other direction into thirds.

P1180964P1180966 P1180968  Take the message, the principles of self-reliance card, and a candy bar-like treat and put them into your newly formed pockets.  The message is the tallest, so I put it in the middle.

P1180969 Fold everything together and then add a 3 inch strip of contrasting paper around the middle, securing it with tape in the back.


Add a bow and you’re all done!
