Deliver Cookie Comfort to Someone in Need: Free Printable Card

We all have times when we are down. But sometimes things are more rough than usual. Stuff happens and we need the support of others. Are you the one to uplift another? There are a variety of ways to show kindness to someone in need. Oftentimes, we add cookies or comfort food, along with a kind note.

Free Printable to Give Someone in Need

While we don’t really need to take anything to visit someone who could use some cheer, somehow it seems to help the visit go a little better. Often, a gift or small treat provides an “excuse” to visit.

A couple of youth in our neighborhood, who have spent years training for their senior year of high-school football, were recently injured and are out for the rest of the season. They’re bummed; we’re all bummed. I have a son who is the same age, and we both want to take a treat over to show we care and that we’re aware this is a rough time for them.

With this cute, printable card, you can write a personal note on the back, which is really the most important part–a few words of kindness.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

And just in case you need a great cookie recipe, here’s one that is sure to be a hit. Jessica at Butter with a Slice of Bread shares the best recipes! Enjoy looking around on her site.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

As I write this, it’s pumpkin season! These cookies are moist, fail-proof, and absolutely delicious. Bake and enjoy!

Note: Particularly during covid, some recipients may appreciate receiving store-bought cookies. I’m a bit of a cookie snob and would much rather have home-baked goodies, but decide what’s best for the person you’re serving.

#HearHim Printable Kit

Hear Him!: Beautiful Artwork and Printable Quotes to Inspire You

God, the Father, loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son to earth for us. Anciently and in modern times, there have been rare occasions when He has presented His Son to mortals. Each time He has invited them to “hear Him,” to hear their Savior, their Elder Brother, their Prince of Peace.

Teach Your Family to Hear Him

We’ve prepared a mini lesson and printable kit you might use for personal or home study. At Sugardoodle, we feel it’s important to remind families how important it is to hear Christ, to really hear Him and heed His teachings.

Hear Him: A Message from Antiquity

Three distinct occasions from the scriptures show us God’s invitation to hear His Son. Anciently, in Matthew 17:5, on the Mount of Transfiguration, God the Father presents Christ to Peter, James, and John, saying:” This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

We again read this admonition in the Book of Mormon when the resurrected Savior appears to the Nephites. At the land Bountiful, they are gathered and hear a quiet voice speaking to them, successively getting louder until the third time repeated. They didn’t understand until God said: “Behold my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased, in whom I have glorified my name–hear ye him” (3 Nephi 11:7). They finally understood as they watched Christ descend from the heavens and join their midst. They received the same verbal introduction to Christ as did Peter, James, and John.

Hear Him: A Message for Our Day

Fast forward to 1820, when young Joseph Smith prays in earnest in the Sacred Grove of Palymra, New York, to know which of all the religious sects of his day were true. He was told to join none after God the Father appeared with His Son and repeated a similar introduction as in times past: “This is my beloved Son. Hear Him!” (Joseph Smith–History 1:17).

Heed the Call to Hear Him

It is no mistake that God the Father is consistent with His invitation to hear His Son. It’s an invitation with a command. We must hear Him in order to follow His teachings, draw closer to Him, and ultimately return to our Heavenly Father someday. There is no other way.

Hear him isn’t just a phrase. It’s more than a gentle nudging. It’s a message of urgency, a plea from an all-knowing Father who loves us. Will we listen? Will we heed the call?

Hear Him Printable Art and Quote

What Does Christ Tell Us?

Christ teaches us everything that truly matters. You’ll find some of His core messages and teachings in this beautiful kit we’ve compiled with artist Joseph Brickey. Let the artwork and messages inspire you as you discuss with your family what Jesus Christ is telling us, what he’s telling you.

Will You Help Others Hear Him?

Once you are comfortable sharing gospel principles at home, you might share with close friends, especially those to whom you minister. You might display one of the quotes in your workspace. Genuine conversation can ensue as you brighten someone’s day with a small message of hope.
