Be of One Heart this month and make your homes, neighborhoods, and communities draw a little closer to Zion this month with this printable visiting teaching message tag. Take these tags to your Visiting Teaching sisters with a small bag of heart candies and share the Savior's words of love and support.
With all the disasters going on in our country and the world right now, people are so willing to get out and help serve one another. It's so wonderful to see America come together when there is so much trying to pull us apart as a country. It's sad that it takes a disaster for us to come together.
But it's a great time to remember the Savior Jesus Christ's teachings for his disciples to be "of one heart."
"And the Lord called His people Zion, because they were of one heart and one mind, and dwelt in righteousness; and there was no poor among them." (Moses 7:18)
While America may far be from the Zion we would wish it to be, we as a people can come together and make our homes, our neighborhoods, our communities a Zion by caring for one another.
"Carole M. Stephens, who served as First Counselor in the Relief Society General Presidency, said:
“I’ve never had to live through divorce, the pain and insecurity that comes from abandonment, or the responsibility associated with being a single mother. I haven’t experienced the death of a child, infertility, or same-gender attraction. I haven’t had to endure abuse, chronic illness, or addiction. These have not been my stretching opportunities
“… But through my personal tests and trials … I have become well acquainted with the One who does understand. … And in addition, I have experienced all of the mortal tests that I just mentioned through the lens of a daughter, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
“Our opportunity as covenant-keeping daughters of God is not just to learn from our own challenges; it is to unite in empathy and compassion as we support other members of the family of God in their struggles.” (Ensign, Of One Heart)
Then remember to look for ways to "unite in empathy and compassion" as you serve your fellow brothers and sisters throughout the month.
Thank you for all you do Sisters. You are amazing!
