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.

Hi, friend! I’m Chrissy from Ministering Printables. I believe that ministering can be fun. I know, hang with me here.

5 INVITATIONS TO PREPARE FOR THE 2020 BICENTENNIAL GENERAL CONFERENCE

 

Our Prophet has “INVITED” us to do 5 specific things to help us PREPARE for the Bicentennial General Conference in April. When we discovered that most people in our ward did NOT know what President Nelson has requested us to do to get prepared, we went to work and created a way to show them the Prophet’s requests. We decided to print up each of his requests and make them into beautiful invitations. We then printed up stickers to be placed on their accompanying envelope that said, “An Invitation From President Russell M. Nelson” and placed all of his requests inside an envelope, one envelope for each member of our YSA RS and Elder’s Quorum.

Design Your Own Plan for General Conference Study

Next, we held a special Sunday School meeting called “A Kick-Off to the Restoration” – and we passed out these special invites to the class. We read through the invitations as a group and focused on the invitation where the Prophet asked us to “Design Your Own Plan to Get Immersed in the Restoration.” We then passed out a worksheet which we called Design Your Own Plan and we brainstormed on the whiteboard ideas to help them get immersed which they could write on their worksheets.

*As leaders, we observed that when our ward members were in charge of designing their “own plans” and brainstorming ideas, they were more excited about getting prepared than if we had told them what to do to prepare. Our ward loved this special meeting. We heard that several members went and made copies of the invitations to pass out to their friends and family! They also have been coming and telling us on Sundays that they have been accomplishing the goals they made on their planning sheet!

Kit for Bicentennial General Conference Preparation

KIT CONTENTS: This instant download printable kit comes with a lesson, worksheets, thematic prints and the invites that you can use for YOUTH lessons, for FHE, or RS. We love helping you ACT UPON the Invitations of our Prophet!

We loved seeing the faces on our YSA members as they opened their “invitations from the Prophet.” It just made it special and unforgettable! A fun idea would be to have a special “RESTORATION FAMILY DINNER” and to have an invite at each of your place settings so each member of your family gets to open their own invitations and feels “INVITED!”

PS. The invites also make for a beautiful “Ministering gift” to give to those you are assigned to. So perfect as the Restoration is on everyone’s minds!

Download this kit FREE NOW ‘TILL FRIDAY, or if you missed it, you can purchase on Etsy at the SUGARdoodleSHOP starting on Friday!

 

 

Blessed are the Piece Makers: How Handmade Pieces Bring Me Peace #PRINCEofPEACE

This past September, my handsome husband, Jason, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Over the last six months of chemo-filled craziness I have learned something incredibly valuable about peace. Real, lasting peace isn’t found; it is fought for. To keep a firm grip on the peace that is so generously extended by my Savior I have to be an active participant. I have to use whatever energy I have for good and surround myself with reminders that I am not alone. Thankfully, in my house, I don’t have to look very far to find comfort (see the the video below).

My house is filled with art, sewing, woodwork and countless other gifts designed to bring me comfort. If yours is too, I hope you’ll share it! Take a picture, make a video, do whatever you can to celebrate the piece maker in your life and share the message of true and lasting peace.

MeckMom’s Teaching Tips: Object Lesson for Faith and Eternal Perspective

Life is hard. When adversity hits we often feel insufficient and hopeless. When we are in the trenches of struggle, there’s nothing more soothing than catching a glimpse of yourself as our Father in Heaven sees you.

This simple object lesson uses a bag of wheat to teach the value of keeping an eternal perspective. It’s a great option for seminary, youth and adult classes. I call it the parable of the wheat.
