Dear Fellow Visiting Teachers,

may vt
feel free to print this off for your personal visiting teaching pleasure.

Since last month was General Conference we are supposed to go over the report and choose our own quotes. That is a tough job—it’s hard to narrow it down!

What stuck out to me during conference was that I need to get myself to the temple more often. What stuck out for you? While I was going over the talks to choose a quote I was also taken by the messages from the Young Women broadcast. I hadn’t realized that they added in another value to the motto—Virtue. I love that.

So Elder Bednar’s quote seemed perfect to me. “Please seek after the things that are of eternal consequence.” So simple, but also very hard to remember to do daily. It is when I get wrapped up in temporal things that I get overwhelmed and stressed out. If I let the worldly things drop away and focus on things that matter in the eternal scheme of things, I find peace.

Did you know that you can download the music from general conference to your ipod now? So cool.

Happy visiting teaching,

Thanks for the ideas and handouts. I used the last two and just downloaded this months quote. Then I thought I want one for myself!!
I didn't think of that
Love you, Aunt Teddy

That's a beautiful quote, especially the way you put it together. I would use it if the two ladies I visit teach knew much English. :) I'll print one out for me though. Thanks!
