The Visiting Teaching Message for June 2017 is on Priesthood Power through Keeping Covenants. Even as an adult, I often see the Priesthood as something that is outside of my personal responsibilities.But grasping that power and having it present in our homes is a responsibility that belongs to each of us, not just to the men that hold it. This month I’m challenging myself to focus more on the priesthood blessings that I receive from my keeping my covenants and watching for ways that it actively blesses my life each day. I’m also determined to find ways to teach my children that God is generous with His power and help them understand that although their dad holds the priesthood, they’re making right choices allows them to partake of priesthood blessings here in our home.
Sister Linda K. Burton said,
Since priesthood power is something we all desire to have in our families and homes, what do we need to do to invite that power into our lives? Personal Righteousness is imperative to having priesthood power.”
The FREE black and white files can be downloaded below and makes for a quick and easy print that you can add a little color to yourself (whip out those markers, colored pencils, watercolors, etc) or simply provide the print with a set of colored pencils or crayons to the sisters you visit and let them DIY the quote themselves. Coloring is a great stress reliever and I’ve found that as I DIY the prints for my sisters each month, I have a few minutes to ponder the message or think about my sisters and get inspired for the visit.
The color file is great for those months where time is short (and for those that want a custom print but don’t love the DIY aspect). If you’d like the color file, you can get it (and monthly prints for a year) by joining the Visiting Teaching Printables Club. Join the Visiting Teaching Printables Club (you’ll receive an email straight to your inbox every month that includes the color and black and white files as well as access to a bunch of printables that will make your visiting teaching calling a breeze – read more about it here) Starting this month, the files also come in different sizes as part of the RSVT Club, so you can print 2 or 4 to a page and use the smaller sizes for tags to tie on treats – perfect for quick drop-offs.
A few other ideas for these darling printables:
- use them for a RS activity night. Let the sisters color the prints themselves at the activity.
- drop off a black and white copy with a small box of colored pencils for your visiting teaching sisters – coloring is quite popular as a de-stresser activity.
- use them as RS birthday gifts. If you’re looking for an inexpensive and meaningful birthday gift for your sisters – this could be it!
- print one off for yourself if you’re looking for a cute & simple craft for yourself or as part of a night with your girlfriends.

The printable’s finished size is 5″ x 7″ and prints 2 two a page so you’ll only have to print a sheet or two and then take just a moment to trim the edges. You get to add whatever colors you’d like – I dusted off my watercolor set and got to work. Tip: Even your child’s water set will do. To create shading, simply watercolor the images and let them dry. Then pat the excess water off your brush before loading it with paint – then create your accents toward the centers of the leaves and let dry again.
I’d love to see how your quote printables turn out! Snap a picture and share them on Instagram!
