2017 Relief Society Lesson Handouts

If you teach Relief Society, you are going to want to bookmark this page! I've designed handouts for all 25 lessons in 2017 and they are FREE to download and use. However, if you see a handout you love and want a different quote, I will personalize it for a small fee. Just pay using PayPal and email me your quote. I will send you the file within 24 hours of received payment.

Each handout is 4x4 in size and can be printed from your home computer (use card stock for best results) or send to a printer like Sam's Club or Costco (print 4x6 and trim down).

These handouts are JPEG files (this blog site won't allow me to post PDFs). If you need/prefer a PDF, just email me at and I'm happy to send you the file. Enjoy!!
