Ministering (Home Teaching) Handouts

Recently, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced there will no longer be Home and Visiting teachers. The leaders of the Church are inspired men who are instruments in the hands of the Lord and I know that whatever program they are moving forward with is inspired through our Heavenly Father.

I want to thank each and every one of you who have used my handouts over the years. I have truly loved reading your emails and comments and appreciate the friendships that have developed through these simple handouts.

I will continue making handouts for the Conference talks. Feel free to use them for your ministering visits.
