Visiting Teaching Message
An Extensive Sphere of Action


Visiting Teaching Surprise Snowball December 2011
The December 2011 Visiting Teaching message talks again about an “extensive sphere of action” – how as we serve in our homes and communities, we have great influence on those around us. To illustrate this sphere, I made a “Surprise Snowball” with elements of the message (in treat form) wrapped inside layers of crepe paper.                                                                                                        

December 2011 Visiting Teaching Message
Whenever Elder M. Russell Ballard speaks, I instinctively believe that he is not addressing me. More often than not, his orations are fixed upon those who participate in traditional family roles, with particular emphasis on women only in the role of a wife and or mother. As a result, his expressions are antiquated at best, which makes this month’s message an exercise in irony when we consider the included Ballard’s quotes. If we are to believe that we, as women, have “an extensive sphere of action” as in the title, then why is the projection of womanhood is limited to only “lead the women of the world”? Why is the influence limited to family prayer and church callings?  Why choose to deflect Eliza R. Snow’s influence in organizing early Relief Societies by stating that she “assisted” bishops in creating local Relief Society branches? Cannot women lead men of the world as well?

The December visiting teaching message is on Our Responsibility to Participate in Temple and Family History Work. I took some quotes from Julie B. Beck to use on the December Visiting Teaching handout.
