The Visiting Teaching message this month focuses on the infinite power of God, and how Jesus Christ has that power and uses it to help and bless others.
Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead with that power, and created the heavens and the earth with that power. He performed many miracles with that power and endured the pain of Gethsemane and Calvary with that power.
When we understand and gain a testimony of this power, our faith will increased and we will have more power in our lives to overcome temptation and we will be “armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory” (1 Nephi 14:14).
To share this message this month, I created a handout that focuses on gaining power and strength. The way I see it, the only way to gain power and strength is to exercise. Physically, we must exercise our muscles and our determination and our hearts. Spiritually, we must exercise our faith and our charity and our love.
To make this handout for the sisters that you visit, you will need to purchase a set of weights for each sister you visit. I used 1 pound weights (because they were the cutest and the least expensive). I also used white cardstock for the message and the tag, as well as a fun autumny 12x12 sheet of cardstock and a ribbon.
Happy Visiting Teaching!
(If you can’t find weights, you could use Powerade, or a type of protein bar that says the word power on it)
