Demonstrating Our Discipleship through Love and Service

Throughout His mortal life, Jesus Christ showed His love for others by ministering to them. He said, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:35). He set the example and wants us to “succor those that stand in need of [our] succor” (Mosiah 4:16). He calls His disciples to work with Him in His ministry, giving them the opportunity to serve others and become more like Him.1

Our service as visiting teachers will closely resemble the ministry of our Savior when we show our love for those we visit teach by doing the following:2

  • Remember their names and the names of their family members and become acquainted with them.
  • Love them without judging them.
  • Watch over them and strengthen their faith “one by one,” as the Savior did (3 Nephi 11:15).
  • Establish sincere friendships with them and visit them in their homes and elsewhere.
  • Care about each sister. Remember birthdays, graduations, weddings, baptisms, or other times that are meaningful to her.
  • Reach out to new and less-active members.
  • Reach out to the lonely or those in need of comfort.

From Our History

“The New Testament includes accounts of women, named and unnamed, who exercised faith in Jesus Christ. … These women became exemplary disciples. … [They] journeyed with Jesus and His Twelve Apostles. They gave of their substance to assist in His ministry. After His death and Resurrection, [they] continued to be faithful disciples.”3

Paul wrote of a woman named Phebe, who was “a servant of the church” (Romans 16:1). He asked the people to “assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many” (Romans 16:2). “The kind of service rendered by Phebe and other great women of the New Testament continues today with members of the Relief Society—leaders, visiting teachers, mothers, and others—who act as succorers, or helpers, of many.”4

What Can I Do?

  1. How am I increasing my ability to nurture others?
  2. What am I doing to ensure that the sisters I watch over know that I love them?

I agree with #1 guest. I have been using your site for many years and your changes in the past year or so have made it much harder to use your site. It used to be easy to find and print anything, but now having to save them makes it difficult and takes much more time, especially when you are using someone else's[censored]puter. My sisters love the handouts and are sad when I don't have them and I'm not creative enough to do them as well but I sure find myself getting frustrated more often with your site than I used to.

So sorry that you are having a hard time, I was hearing from more people that they wanted them in the photo format more then the PDF file, but never fear, I have been listening from those who don't also. You will see in August I did a PDF file. I hope that helps.

Your handouts are terriffic, but I could use some suggestions for those of us who have a letter route. My problem is that my list is all sister who will only allow letters and some restrict the contact to only 2 letters a year. Do you have ideas that show our concern for them without being pushy?

For those of us who are not[censored]puter savey,, Your new format to be able to copy the message on your "4 per page", is not working. I don't know if it is my virus protection or what, but I can not down load it the way you are doing it now.

Hi I am sorry to hear that, if you can email me at liz@theideadoor [censored] I can try to help you with this issue. I changed to this format because it seemed to be easier for everyone.
Please email me!
