A New Year - Visit Teach!

Happy New Year everyone! My husband and I are lame and were asleep before midnight last night (I blame it on the pregnancy and the busy 1 year old), but we still made sure to tell each other our New Year's resolutions.

This year, I am committed to doing 3 things: eating healthier, making my family my highest priority, and being a 100% visiting teacher.

I have teetered back and forth throughout my adult life with my consistency in visiting teaching. I have a very strong testimony about it and I have seen the joys that it brings, but there were just certain times in my life where it was not a high priority. That has changed over the last two years since I got married, and I am so glad that I have the privilege of being a visiting teacher.

The visiting teaching message this month is all about missionary work. As a returned missionary, I know the importance of members working with their friends and family to help them understand the gospel of Jesus Christ. I saw miracles happen as people reached out and shared their testimonies with others, and they saw the blessings their families received. The quote I chose from the message this month is by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf:

"The Lord…entrusts a testimony of the truth to those who will share it with others."

I believe that is true. I know that our testimonies grow as we share them, and I know that the members of Relief Society have the duty to help save souls. Souls are saved as we share the saving truths of the gospel.

How has your testimony grown as you have shared it with others?
