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.

All-Occasion Ministering Scripture Printables

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

I’ve never forgotten when visiting teaching changed to ministering. In that general conference, Elder Holland said, “With these adjustments we want more care and concern, not less.”

Those words mean that we need more contact, more care.

But let’s be honest. The world is noisy and busy. We are all stressed and pressed for time. So how do we do it?

These printables can make it easier for you. 😍

August Visiting Teaching Kit

August 2016VT slider box_SD
As I thought this week about how our words influence the love and nurturing that occurs in our homes, I was struck by the similarities to raspberries– they can be tart or they can be sweet!  This epiphany was the catalyst for this month’s message, which is full of raspberries and, of course, Sweet Tarts!

And let me just say a word about the recipe for this month–these Raspberry ‘Sweet’ Rolls are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!  I am a huge believer in easy roll recipes, so I got creative and combined a couple of my recipes for the dough and the fillings and this raspberry-cream-cheese-fluffy-dough beauty was born!  Using instant yeast it took me about an hour and half from start to finish– and if you know anything about sweet/cinnamon roll recipes, this is incredibly fast!  I hope you give it a try!

Enjoy the BONUS “missed you” door hangers for those sisters that just seem to be on vacation all summer long. 😉
