Christmas Inspiration…

A Different Kind of Shopping List for Christmas

One package of cooperation: This is a basic ingredient in every successful venture.

One pound of mixed nuggets of wisdom and inspiration: The shelf life of these nuggets is very short so serve fresh while still on your mind.

One bottle of enthusiasm: May be sprinkled liberally on everything you do, but it is astonishing what even a few drops can do.

One box of compromise pills: At first, these may seem like bitter pills to swallow, but they contain a magic catalyst that results in improved human relations.

One large economy carton of patience: Keep a good supply on hand—a most useful item, and, during the holiday season, it’s so easy to run short at the most inconvenient times.

A matching pair of bookends marked “Appreciation” and “Gratitude.” No matter how these are used or to whom they are given, they are always welcome.

One spool of tact and understanding: Good for mending hurt feelings and patching up injured egos. Much better than Elmer’s glue. Maybe you’d better get two spools while you’re at it.

One do it yourself humility-hat set: This fully equipped kit has everything you need. The little humility—hat comes in all sizes and shapes. Be sure to select one size smaller than you usually wear because that’s just what you need. Kit also includes one South African head shrinking device made in Japan—guaranteed to keep little minds from getting puffed up. This is one gift you may wish to wrap for yourself. You’ll be proud you did!

A gallon jug of common sense: May be combined with so many other things and in so many different ways. Can also be used as a substitute when other ingredients are not available. This is a must on your shopping list. Costs only a few cents. All stores have a large supply because most people don’t keep much on hand.

One warm and comfy blanket of love: Even the smallest size can be wrapped around all your friends and relatives, especially at Christmas time. Because of the way it is woven, it warms the heart even before the hands. It can be used in emergencies to wipe away tears, cares and sorrows. No couple can afford to be without one, particularly on birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentine’s Day. If worn constantly, it will last forever.

The Ten Commandments of Christmas

1.Thou shalt not put any other holiday traditions or celebrations (not even Santa Claus) above the celebration of our Savior's birth and the deep meaning of His life, teachings, and sacrifices.
2. Thou shalt look at thy life and make at least one positive change as your gift to the Savior at His birthday celebration.
3. Thou shalt have many traditions, especially those types of traditions that remind you of the Savior, give service to others, and bring your family closer together.
4. Thou shalt remember those who are alone and help them to have a "Merry Christmas" also.
5. Thou shalt give gifts of worth and not merely add to another's collection of clutter simply for the sake of "giving a gift". Give of yourself which is the way Savior gave.
6. Thou shalt value the effort and thought put into gifts received. Just as with the widow's mite, it is the meaning that gives a gift value not the dollar amount paid.
7. Thou shalt give no gift grudgingly or because you have to. This does not mean to not give the gift to someone, but work until you have changed your own attitude.
8. Thou shalt not become so busy that you don't have time to really enjoy the season.
9. Thou shalt remember that of all the beautiful and expensive gifts, what children want and need most is honor, respect, love, and your time.
10. Above all, Thou shalt find a way to keep the spirit of the Christmas season and of giving all through the year.

December Visiting Teaching Message

Our Responsibility to Participate in Temple and Family History Work

"Our Responsibility to Participate in Temple and Family History Work", Liahona, Dec. 2010, 7

Study this material and, as appropriate, discuss it with the sisters you visit. Use the questions to help you strengthen your sisters and to make Relief Society an active part of your own life.

Over the centuries many people have died without knowledge of the gospel. Some of those people are your near and distant relatives. They are waiting for you to do the necessary research to link your families together and perform saving ordinances on their behalf.

Most of the temples of the world are not busy enough. The Lord has promised that your hearts would be turned to the fathers so that the earth would not be utterly wasted at His coming (see D&C 2:2–3).

There are personal blessings you receive as a result of participation in temple and family history work. One of these is the joy that you feel as you serve your ancestors. Another is that you are able to qualify for a temple recommend, which signifies your worthiness before the Lord. Those who are not worthy today of the privilege of having a recommend should be working with a bishop or branch president to qualify as soon as possible. Please don’t be without this vital qualification. I testify that the Atonement is real and that sins can be forgiven upon proper repentance.

As we participate in temple and family history work, we are certain to have the Spirit to comfort us in our challenges and to guide us in important decisions. Temple and family history work is part of our work of providing relief, or service, to our own ancestors.

Julie B. Beck, Relief Society general president.

From the Scriptures

Malachi 4:5–6; 1 Corinthians 15:29; 1 Peter 3:18–19; D&C 110:13–16; 128:24

From Our History

“The Prophet Joseph Smith said, ‘The greatest responsibility in this world that God has laid upon us is to seek after our dead’ (History of the Church, 6:313). From the beginning, Relief Society sisters have supported this great work. In Nauvoo in 1842, Sarah M. Kimball’s desire to help the temple construction workers prompted a group of sisters to organize themselves so that they could serve more effectively. As they began to meet, the Prophet … organized the first Relief Society after the pattern of the priesthood. From that time on, the Relief Society sisters helped further the work on the Nauvoo Temple. …

“In 1855, eight years after the Saints first arrived in Utah, the Endowment House was established. Eliza R. Snow, who had been one of the original members of the first Relief Society and had preserved the records of that organization, was called by President Brigham Young in 1866 to be the general Relief Society president. She and other sisters were faithful workers in the Endowment House. Then, as the St. George, Logan, and Manti Temples were completed, these sisters traveled to each temple so they could do work for the dead there.”1

What Can I Do?

  1. How can I help my sisters search out their ancestors and perform temple ordinances for them? Consider the circumstances of each sister as you ponder how to meet her needs. You might consider that family history work can often strengthen new, returning, and less-active members.
  2. When has temple and family history work comforted me in my challenges or guided me in important decisions?


This is a great poem that goes along with this months Visiting Teaching message (Thanks Shelley)

Another's Hands
Like a child seeks help from a parent
my fingers extend.
hoping that my life will be more
than the little I can be alone.
Other hands,
some wrinkled, some soft
some long gone,
extend to me as I go about my days.
What joys have they known?
What child have they touched?
What pains have they born?
Like Michaelangelo's Adam
reached for his Father's hand
I reach tentatively for another's grasp.
Can I share something?
Can I feel as another does?
Can I learn to find joy?
Hands are tools
sent with loving purpose
offering us a taste of heaven
from our mother above.
Will You Take Mine?
Will we reach together?
Will you give me yours?

By Edgar A. Guest 
When you get to know a sister, know her joys and know her cares, 
When you've come to understand her and the burdens that she bears, 
When you've learned the fight she's making and the troubles in her way, 
Then you find that she is different than you thought her yesterday. 
You find her faults are trivial and there's not so much to blame 
In the sister that you jeered at when you only knew her name. 
You are quick to see the blemish in the distant neighbor's style, 
You can point to all her errors and may sneer at her the while, 
And your prejudices fatten and your hates more violent grow 
As you talk about the failures of the one you do not know, 
But when drawn a little closer, and your hands and shoulders touch, 
You find the traits you hated really don't amount to much. 
When you get to know a sister, know her every mood and whim, 
You begin to find the texture of the splendid side of them; 
You begin to understand her, and you cease to scoff and sneer, 
For with understanding always prejudices disappear. 
You begin to find her virtues and her faults you cease to tell, 
For you seldom hate a sister when you know her very well. 
When next you start in sneering and your phrases turn to blame, 
Know more of her you censure than her business and her name; 
For it's likely that acquaintance would your prejudice dispel 
And you'd really come to like her if you knew her very well

Thursday, April 29th we will be having a night of "mini classes" instead of the munch & mingle. We felt like the Birthday party served as a munch & mingle enough, so we're going to focus on arranging 5 mini classes. I have already talked with Shon Moulton, the attorney in Driggs & he's going to do one of the classes on "wills". We have 4 others in mind, and are working on making those arrangements. We're hoping to have a meeting in the next week or so to discuss more details, so stay tuned...

Becoming Self-Reliant

Sunday February 7th lesson from Sister Bagley. She gave a beautiful heartfelt lesson on Becoming Self-Reliant. This is a handout she gave us. It is intended to help us identify the areas of self-reliance we are lacking in, to help us start thinking about the next steps and goals we can give ourselves in becoming more self-reliant.


“Food for the hungry cannot come from empty shelves;

Money to assist the needy cannot come from an empty purse;

Support and understanding cannot come from the emotionally starved;

Teaching cannot come from the unlearned;

Spiritual guidance cannot come from the spiritually week.”

     -Ana Maria Coburn, Primary General Board


Area of Self Reliance My Next Steps and Goals
Spiritual Strengths:

Physical, Emotional and
Social Strengths:
Preparedness for
Emergencies and/or
Financial Management:




Work is an antidote for anxiety, and ointment for sorrow, and a doorway to possibility. Those who aren’t unafraid to roll up their sleeves and lose themselves in the pursuit of worthwhile goals are a blessing to their families, community, nations and to the Church.

Knowledge does away with darkness, anxiety, and doubt; for these cannot exist where knowledge is. Strive to increase your knowledge of all that is “virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy.”  Seek knowledge “by study and also by faith.” Seek with a humble spirit and contrite heart.     -President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, 13th Article of Faith, D&C 109:7

Primary Activity

Just a little reminder for those mothers who didn’t hear about the Primary Activity. It is this Tuesday, February 9th after school till 4:30. They are going to spread some love and joy to others and hope that you can come. Parents are always welcome.

Visiting Teaching Message for FEBRUARY…don’t forget your sisters this month

Managing Resources Wisely and Staying Out of Debt

“Managing Resources Wisely and Staying Out of Debt,” Liahona, Feb 2010, 7

Teach these scriptures and quotations or, if needed, another principle that will bless the sisters you visit. Bear testimony of the doctrine. Invite those you visit to share what they have felt and learned.

Managing Resources

“‘Provident living’ … implies the [conserving] of our resources, the wise planning of financial matters, full provision for personal health, and adequate preparation for education and career development, giving appropriate attention to home production and storage as well as the development of emotional resiliency. … If we live wisely and providently, we will be as safe as in the palm of His hand.”1

President Spencer W. Kimball (1895–1985).

“What skills do we need to help us become self-reliant? … In the early days of the Church, Brigham Young pled with the sisters to learn to prevent illness in families, establish home industries, and learn accounting and bookkeeping and other practical skills. Those principles still apply today. Education continues to be vitally important. …

“I asked several bishops what self-reliance skills the sisters in their wards needed most, and they said budgeting. Women need to understand the implications of buying on credit and not living within a budget. The second skill bishops listed was cooking. Meals prepared and eaten at home generally cost less, are healthier, and contribute to stronger family relationships.”2

Julie B. Beck, Relief Society general president.

Avoiding Debt

“May I suggest five key steps to financial freedom. …

“First, pay your tithing.

“Second, spend less than you earn.

“Third, learn to save.

“Fourth, honor your financial obligations.

“Fifth, teach your children to follow your example.”3

Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin (1917–2008) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

“When we go into debt, we give away some of our precious, priceless agency and place ourselves in self-imposed servitude. We obligate our time, energy, and means to repay what we have borrowed—resources that could have been used to help ourselves, our families, and others. …

“To pay our debts now and to avoid future debt require us to exercise faith in the Savior—not just to do better but to be better. It takes great faith to utter those simple words, ‘We can’t afford it.’ It takes faith to trust that life will be better as we sacrifice our wants in order to meet our own and others’ needs.”4

Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

Helps for Visiting Teachers

Counsel with your companion about how to sensitively adapt this message to each sister’s circumstances. What self-reliance skills can you share with her?

Our new Presidency

Just a little introduction to our New Relief Society Presidency

Nancy Richardson (President)
I have been married for 26 years to my wonderful husband Andy. I have 2 children, James and Nicole. James has been married for 2 years to Amanda and Nicole has been married for 1 year to Sean Goodman. We both come from Idaho Falls and we have lived in the valley for 14 years. I love to spend time with my family we love to ride 4-wheelers, have a lot of bon fires and just hand out. Other than my family I have a strong love for horses. In the summer I travel anywhere from New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Utah and Montana to show my Arabian. I have been doing this for 9 years, I started with Nicole showing for a few years then when she turned 18 it was moms turn. I travel with a group that ranges from 6-60. I'm grateful for this calling and I'm looking forward to getting to know all the sisters in the ward.

Pauline Bagley (1st Counselor)
I was born and raised in Teton Valley of goodly parents, having an older sister, a younger sister and younger brother. Since my brother was the youngest, I am my sisters spent a lot of time on the tractors farming and feeding cattle. I married my high school sweetheart after he returned from his mission to Australia. After being away from the Valley for about 8 years for schooling and work, we realized we were country people so we moved back to Teton Valley to farm. We have three married children and 9 and 2/3 grandchildren. I am an outdoor person and like to walk, hike, ride horses, camp, ski, drive tractors, feed cattle, or whatever else needs done outside. However, when the weather is bad I like to be indoors playing the piano, reading, sewing, cleaning or trying new recipes. I love my family and friends and am so thankful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Victor 3rd Ward.

Tanya Bingham (2nd Counselor)
I am the happy mother of 4 great kids (Janessa, Breklyn, Kambria and Cayson), and love that I get to stay home with them. I met my sweetheart, Logan at what was then Ricks College...first day of my fall semester, Freshman Year! Not exactly what I had planned, but NO regrets! I have lived in several different states including Arizona, Illinois, Utah, Idaho, New Mexico and Hawaii, but my family is mostly in Utah now. I am the 5th child of 10...6 sisters and 3 brothers. something unique about me is that I've been Life Flighted once (off the ski hill) and almost a second time, and Logan's been Life Flighted too (Hunting accident '06)! Not sure that's anything to be proud of, but certainly something unique!

Shelley Streit (Secretary)
I grew up in California and decided to attend BYU Provo for a bit of a change of pace. Little did I know how big of a change I was in for. I was baptized at the end of my Freshman year and met my husband Jason that same year. Most of my time is spent with my three children (Cambrie, Tatum and Jake) but I spend my Wednesdays working as a dental hygienist at Cottonwood Dental. I enjoy travelling, snowshoeing, sunshine, reading, just started quilting, am addicted to chocolate and though I'm taking a break right now. I've been working on learning Spanish. I would be lost without my Heavenly Father and definitely wouldn't have chosen to give up 80 degree weather and frequent mall shopping without His influence. Of course, now that I'm here there is no place I'd rather be living.
