Sometimes all it takes is a small act of kindness to brighten someone’s day. Print out or text a picture of these Ministering Quote Cards and show someone you care!
Hi everyone! I’m Valerie, from Occasionally Crafty and I have a confession: sometimes I feel pretty alone at church. I moved to my town just over 2 years ago, and while I know a lot of people through my callings, I don’t really have any close friends. Sometimes I feel sad thinking of the people I left behind. I also struggle in my calling as Relief Society president; I feel completely inadequate and often feel out of place. Sometimes I don’t even want to go to church because those feelings overwhelm me.
A sweet sister in my ward stopped and gave me a hug one Sunday, and as I pulled away she slipped a piece of paper in my hand, smiled, and walked away. I unfolded it to find a simple statement: “You are loved”. In that moment, I DID feel loved. I felt a little less lonely.
I thought, what a great idea to share an inspirational thought with someone! It is a great way to minister to others–not only for your ministering sisters, but just for anyone in need of a little smile or comfort.
So, I put together a sheet of some of my favorite quotes from General Conference that you could print out and pass out when appropriate. I also included some blank ones so you can add your own quotes. Or, download the images and send a picture text, or use social media to share it with someone.
Wouldn’t the world shine a little brighter if we all reached out to those around us and noticed those who are struggling (even those who put a good face on it?)
