I Like Visiting Teaching


Visiting teaching is one of the callings in my church that I enjoy the most. I have a list of women in my ward (congregation) that I have been asked to contact each month by way of mail. The purpose of visiting teaching is to minister to each person. By "ministering" I mean pray for, get to know, be there to help in case of emergency and inspire spiritually. I like to think of it as helping each of us be aware of everyone in our ward so that no one is forgotten...

Regular visiting teachers get to know their sisters by actually seeing them. I'm not so lucky that way. No one ever writes me back. :(  Sometimes it is hard to keep up the enthusiasm for the assignment, but knowing how important it is in the Big Picture spurs me onward each month.

This month I decided to do little watercolors for the cards. I wish the message I wrote on the other side was as pretty as the heart painting, but I suppose we give what we can, right?
