The Visiting Teaching Message for July 2017 is That They May Be One. I love being reminded about the importance of covenants and the promises and blessings they bring. Because keeping covenants is a lifelong process, I’ve found that the more reminders I have of all that the covenants I’ve made hold, is vital to me staying on track. That’s probably why we’re encouraged to attend the temple often and partake of the sacrament every week… I hope this print is one more way we can remember what our covenants truly are.
Sister Linda K Burton said:
“Making and keeping our covenants is an expression of our commitment to become like the Savior. The ideal is to strive for the attitude best expressed in a few phrases of a favorite hymn: I’ll go where you want me to go… I’ll say what you want me to say… I’ll be what you want me to be.”
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.

*Once you click the download button you’ll be taken to a confirmation screen that will have a link to your free file.
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!
