Visiting Teaching Handouts


Your Visiting Teaching just got easier! I make handouts for the ladies I visit. A few years ago, I was asked by friends and family to post them online so they could have access to the handouts also. They are now being used all over the world! Don't miss out. These handouts are available for YOU to save, print and use for your visits, too ~ for FREE. Watch for new handouts at the beginning of each month. Now that's motivation to get MY visiting done! (They are also on Facebook,  Pinterest and Instagram and you can find Say This Write on SugarDoodle and The Idea Door.)

* Designed on an 8.5" x 11" page for easy printing; handouts are 5" x 5" (make sure your print option is set at 100%). The 2/page handouts measure slightly smaller. For questions, email me at stacyjcoles@yahoo.com or LEAVE A COMMENT on this blog. I would love to hear from you.

* TO PRINT: Click on the handout of your choice. Right-click and Save to your computer. Open the saved file and print. Again, make sure your print option is set at 100%(or it will appear too big to print).

* These (below) are JPEG filesIf you need PDF files, email me at stacyjcoles@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to send you one (this blog will not let me to post PDF files). Enjoy!

* These handouts will no longer be made in languages other than English due to problems beyond my control. So sorry for the inconvenience!

  22. Your handouts are really cute - I was excited that you offered them in German as well.... BUT have to tell you: Don't use Google Translator! The translations there usually don't make sense. It might be better to go to the church's website in the language you're translating into and find the quotes in the Liahona - you can be sure that the translations are correct there ;) But thanks for the effort! That is very sweet of you!

    1. Thanks, Judith!! First off, I'm so sorry it's jumbled. Second, thank you so much for taking the time to (kindly) let me know. Sometimes the translator works great and other times it doesn't. I don't know until people, like you, take a minute and let me know. I will try a different route next month and hopefully things will work out better. Handouts don't help if they aren't legible, right?!! Again, thank you for letting me know! I truly appreciate it.

  27. Hi Stacy I just decided to bookmark just your site as after realising that I spend way too much time looking on other lists, I find I always come back to yours because I like the way you represent these gospel ideas best. It's only preference as there is nothing wrong with others, I just 'feel' best about yours. And I marvel at how lovely you make things look around the powerful words. Thanks for being so generous with your great talent. It is spread around this little part of the Kingdom in South Australia. Cheers Mary

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words, Mary! I'm very flattered that you've decided to bookmark my whole site. I'm certainly trying to get something on here for everyone. It's exciting to know my designs are being "spread around" in South Australia. I love it!! Have a great rest of your day! :)

  30. Just wanted to let you know that I download your images every month and send to my sisters. If I happen to miss a month, they let me know!! I use the Postagram app and they are able to pop out the square so that they have a collection of inspirational messages. Thank you so much for bringing the spirit into our lives.

  33. Thank you for your wonderful 2018 VT handouts. You put so much time into selection one from each talk so that we can decide which is best for our sisters. I have been enjoying your cards for the past year. Thank you for so freely sharing with us all.
