Hello! It’s Marissa from Prickly Pear Design Co.  and I’m excited to be sharing these cute little Pick Me Up Treat Tags with you today!  A few weeks ago, I got called to be the Compassionate Service Leader. When I heard those words, I automatically thought “babies, surgeries, funerals…” but compassionate service is so much more than that. Compassionate service is a chance not only to help out in times of need, but to uplift. And as I thought about… Read more »

April 2017 Visiting Teaching Idea

Are you ready for a new Visiting Teaching idea? With the help of one of my amazing friends, I finally narrowed down what to do, and I am loving it. I think I say that every month…sorry. For this month’s idea, I took the quote from Sister Burton and created a little ‘flip book’ of cards to help you take the challenge that Sister Burton presented, and memorize the Oath and Covenant of the Priesthood (found in D&C 84:33-44). And… Read more »

March 2017 VT Idea

It’s time to say goodbye to another month, and begin again. I’m actually a little bit ok with it because that just means we’re getting closer to Spring. Here in Idaho we still are covered in snow, and I mean covered! Last week I started thinking about this month’s Visiting Teaching message, and what I could share. I thought of the word ‘Power’ and thought of using Powerade, but I already shared that before (you can see that idea HERE). I… Read more »

January 2017 LDS Visiting Teaching Idea

I am so excited to share my January 2017 Visiting Teaching Printables and Idea with you today. I have been thinking about this month’s message, but didn’t have an idea of what to do. Today I read over the message again, and finally had the perfect idea. We have a huge snowstorm going on in Idaho right now, so big that they have cancelled church for us tomorrow. Before the snow showed up, I decided I’d better run to the grocery store and… Read more »

The Family is Ordained of God

It’s October! We won’t discuss how close Christmas is…I’ll just jump right in to this month’s cute Visiting Teaching idea. 🙂 This month’s message is once again centered around family, and, as always, it is such a wonderful message. I usually awhile narrowing down what I am going to share for my idea, and this month wasn’t any different. At first I was going to share something about the family being the central ‘piece’ of Heavenly Father’s plan (attached to Reese’s… Read more »

Parenthood is a Sacred Duty

The September 2016 Visiting Teaching message focuses on Parenthood. After reading over the message, and then digging a little deeper and reading the talks/articles that the quotes were selected from, I decided to create a ‘happy home’ theme idea for my Visiting Teaching Printables this month. I think they turned out pretty cute! What do you think? I absolutely LOVED the quote from President Monson: “Give your child a compliment and a hug; say, ‘I love you’ more; always express your… Read more »

August 2016 VT Message

UPDATE: I now have my VT printable in Portuguese and Spanish! Click the appropriate link to download! I am so excited to share this month’s Visiting Teaching idea and printables with you. When I read this month’s message I knew exactly what I wanted to share. I just had to figure out which quotes, and what I wanted to the printables to look like. I got to work, and finished with a couple days to spare. 😉 I hope you… Read more »

12 Weeks to a better relationship with Jesus Christ

What kind of relationship do you have with your Father in Heaven, and your Savior, Jesus Christ? A few weeks ago I talked about this particular question on a Facebook Live video. I was discussing and sharing teaching tips for Elder Renlund’s talk, “That I Might Draw All Men unto Me”. Before my video, my husband and I studied and discussed this talk and thought that the main topic of his talk was on our relationship with Jesus Christ and… Read more »

July 2016 Visiting Teaching Ideas

This month’s Visiting Teaching message is such a great one: ‘Our Potential for Parenthood’. Have you read the message? What was your favorite part of it? As I read the message I noticed the word ‘JOY’ in one of the quotes. Being a Mother may be stressful and times, but it brings so much ‘JOY’ into my life, so I thought some yummy Almond Joy candy bars would be the perfect treat for this month…and some cute quote and scripture… Read more »
