This Sunday

Want to be better prepared for our RS lesson this Sunday? Click here to the link of the talk Sister Chaillet will be reviewing.

More Diligent and Concerned at Home
by Elder Bednar
October 2009 General Conference

***Don't forget that this Sunday is the last day to do your Visiting Teaching for the month. And if you do your visiting teaching in February, you'll get more points for the auction next week!

Gifts from the Heart

We're getting excited for our March 2nd RS Birthday party. And since it's a party, don't forget to bring your gift! We'll provide the dinner.

(See previous post about what kind of gifts to bring.)

This would be a great activity to bring a friend to. If she can't bring a gift though, you'll need to bring one for her. That way everyone will go home with something new!

And how are handing out gifts? We're having an auction! So come prepared to answer a small questionnaire that will give you points to use for bidding.

Here are some ideas on what you can do during the week leading up to March 2nd. These are surefire ways to earn yourself more points for the auction!
--Read scriptures daily
--Attend church
--Do an act of service
--Attend the temple
--Drive through a construction zone
--Have a baby!

Gifts from the Heart

It's a birthday party for the Relief Society!
Tuesday, March 2nd
7:00 PM
Cultural Hall

You're job: bring a "gift from the heart" to be auctioned off. We want these gifts to be something from your heart. Maybe you're good at sewing or baking? Or maybe you're a crafty person. Be creative because you'll receive extra points for how creative your gift is!

Each sister will have points to use to bid on the auctioned "gifts". (We'll tell you next week how you can earn points.)

This week we're giving you ideas for gifts to bring:
Loaves of bread
Dinner for 4 or 6, ready to be reheated
A holiday craft
A piece of needlework you have done
A copy of two of your favorite paperback books
Brownies, peanut brittle, toffee
A cake, pie, cobbler, trifle, batch of cupcakes
Family Home Evening Kits with lessons, visuals, & treats
The makings for a family movie night: $ to rent a movie, popcorn, etc
Homemade quilts, burp clothes, tote bags, etc
Or you could even re-gift something new you have that you've never used
Homemade jewelry
A painting you've done
A kit for banana splits: bananas, toppings, money for ice cream
Tie a fleece blanket
Homemade Birthday/Thank You cards

Sister Missionaries need 3 volunteers

The sister missionaries in our area need 3 people (men or women) to help them with a training meeting they are doing on February 17 (Wednesday) from 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM. The meeting will be at the Meandering Way church building. Volunteers will be given their assignment when they arrive. No advance preparation is required of the volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer, please call Sister Ruth Hale at 972-239-5620, or leave a comment here on the blog with your name, or tell Ruth Guerreiro or Ruth Hale at church.

Thanks in advance for all your service!

(I'm trying to find some cute clip art to put on here, but they're all for Elders. So I guess you're stuck with a picture of me from my mission.)
