Visiting Teaching

My visiting teachers are amazing. Each time they visit I receive confirmation from the Spirit that Relief Society and Visiting Teacher are inspired of  God. Women in this church are amazing. We have been counseled to ‘stand strong and immovable’ and to be ‘ambitious to do good’. And let me just say that in every ward I have been to around the world I can see how the Visiting Teaching program has changed the lives of many women.

A few months ago my mother send me this fun little hymnal-style tribute to the women in the churhch. I do not know who the author is (so I apologize for not giving credit where credit is due).

Glancing through the Hymnal last Sunday I noted that as Sisters in Zion, we who are called to serve are all enlisted to go marching, marching forward because the world has need of willing men to all press on scattering sunshine. We wonder if we have done any good in the world today because we have been given much and want to do what is right, keep the commandments, press forward with the Saints, choose the right, and put our shoulders to the wheel going where He wants us to go. However, as the morning breaks high on the mountaintop, truth reflects upon our senses, and while we still believe that sweet is the work, we also realize that we have work enough to do ere the sun goes down.And thus we askThee ere we part, where can we turn for peace?

Thank you, unknown author.
