Quotes about Visiting Teaching “God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. Therefore, it is vital that we serve each other in the kingdom.” Spencer W. Kimball “I marvel as I witness the countless acts of charity performed daily by visiting teachers all over the world who selflessly minister to the needs of individual sisters and their families. To these faithful visiting teachers, I say, ‘Through those small acts of charity, you follow the Savior and you act as instruments in His hands as you help, care, lift, comfort, listen, encourage, nurture, teach, and strengthen the sisters under your care.” Silvia H. Allred “In visiting teaching we reach out to each other. Hands often speak as voices can’t. A warm embrace conveys volumes. A laugh together unites us. A moment of sharing refreshes our souls. We cannot always lift the burden of one who is troubled, but we can lift her so she can bear it well.” -Daughters in my Kingdom “It is vital that each sister have visiting teachers—to convey a sense that she is needed, that some- one loves and thinks about her. But equally important is the way the visiting teacher is able to grow in charity. By assigning our women to do visiting teaching, we give them the opportunity to develop the pure love of Christ, which can be the greatest blessing of their lives.” – Daughters in my Kingdom "Before visiting teachers go into a home, they should pray, study the message together, and consider the needs of the sisters they visit by asking questions like, "What within this message would be of help? What would meet her needs and lift her spirits?" It may be just a verse of scripture, but it is an opportunity to share. I think bonding begins when we share together as women." -Bonnie D. Parkin Visiting teaching is a way to help us care for and about each other. It is a way for us to develop the characteristics of a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a way to make sure that no one in the Lord's kingdom is alone." -Mary Ellen Smoot "The purposes of visiting teaching are to build caring relationships with each sister and to offer support, comfort, and friendship. In visiting teaching, both the giver and receiver are blessed & strengthened in their church activity by their caring concern for one another." - Relief Society Handbook, 202.
