I was asked to give a motivational comment on Visiting Teaching this month. In the past I have listen to some "motivational" talks on how to be a visiting teacher, and walked away unmotivated. For my approach I thought that I would just start with the basics. What does the church think that a visiting teacher is? I decided to use the church's exact words to share with the sisters what is required of us to be a visiting teacher. Then I thought it would be nice for the sisters to have a printout that they could read for themselves. I know that we all have different demands on our time, so I hope that we can go through the list of ideas and find ways to visit teach that works for us, and works for our sisters.
My message was simple:
Be the Best Visiting Teacher You Can Be!
