Week of May 12: Dish Soap

Week of May 19: Light Bulbs

Week of May 26: Candles

Every month we will post a list of items to add to our 3-month supply. The idea is that each sister will determine how much she has to spend on food storage & preparedness items for a given week & buy as much of that week’s item as her budget will accommodate.

Highlights: General Conference - April 2013

Visiting Teaching Message

Because the May 2013 Ensign contains all the addresses from general conference, there is not a designated visiting teaching message for May. Visiting teachers are encouraged to prayerfully select their messages from one or more of the general conference addresses.


Responsibilities of Visiting Teachers:

“Visiting teaching gives women the opportunity to watch over, strengthen, and teach one another. Visiting teachers sincerely come to know and love each sister, help her strengthen her faith, and give service.”

“The Relief Society president can’t put her hand on every single sister in the ward, but a visiting teacher can.”

“Jesus Christ was the perfect example of ministering. Visiting teachers follow His example as they increase faith, strengthen families, and provide relief.”

“I know that we’re being successful in our visiting teaching when the sisters in my ward can say: My visiting teacher helps me grow spiritually. I know my visiting teacher cares deeply about me and my family and I know if I have a problem my visiting teacher will help me.”
