Visiting Teaching Message

Now, all of you at some time or another have come up with an issue you have about Relief Society visiting teaching. You say, “Well, I’m not really fond of my partner.” Or, “The sisters we’re asked to visit and I, don’t connect. Our schedules don’t match,” or “I’m afraid to go,” or “I’ve had a bad experience in the past,” or something else. I’m here to tell you that the Lord doesn’t care about your issues…. He cares about your consecration and your heart, and what you’re willing to give back. We can invent all the issues we want to not do the Lord’s work, but if we choose to come into this great society, this wonderful sisterhood that is here to provide relief, then we become part of the Lord’s work.

Julie B. Beck, “Visiting Teachers Are the Lord’s Agents”
