May Visiting Teaching Handout Ideas

This month we are encouraged to select a message from the most recent General Conference to share with our sisters for visiting teaching.  I loved President Uchtdorf's talk, but I also loved Elder Cook's talk Foundations of Faith.

With Mother's Day around the corner, and planting season in full swing I have been obsessed with all things garden and especially all the beautiful blossoms.  In my mind having a good foundation definitely goes with flowers and gardening. Just like having a good foundation of soil helps your plants grow, we need to have a good foundation of faith for our testimony to grow so we can blossom spiritually!

It reminds me of the parable of the seed and the sower.  Where the seed was the word of God, the sower was the Lord, and the survival of the seed and its growth depended on the condition of the soil-the heart of the person who receives it.  You can find more in Matthew 13:4-9, and even more can be found in this talk from President Eyring!  So many great things about learning and growing from General Conference!

If you listen with the Spirit, you will find your heart softened, your faith strengthened, and your capacity to love the Lord increased.  -President Eyring

For this handout you can attach this tag to so many different things.  Here's just a few that I thought of:  Smart Cookie sugar cookie in the shape of a flower, General Conference Ensign with highlighter, gardening tool or gloves, potted plant, packet of seeds, bouquet of flowers-there are super cheap ones at Trader Joe's, cookie and gum drop flower bouquet, grow kit-I found mine in the Dollar Bins at Target, flower magnets-you can find these wood cut outs at Hobby Lobby and attach a magnet to the back, and even flower pens-I made these years ago for my best friends bridal shower and I still love them.

Or of course pop the calendar in a IKEA frame and you are good to go! 

Which idea is your favorite or do you have other flower ideas?!  Let me know!
Happy Visiting Teaching!
