General Conference Kits

So, as I've mentioned, all of us Wayward Girls are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sometimes called "Mormon," One really neat thing about our church is that twice a year we get to hear from our church leaders in a worldwide broadcast. This includes a living prophet, just like Noah and Moses.  We call this meeting General Conference.

 

I wanted to prepare a goodie bag for the sisters I visit teach in preparation for Conference. Visiting teaching is another program in our church, set up to take care of every individual. Two women are assigned to visit another woman monthly and share a spiritual message. They are also directed to pray for this sister throughout the month and help minister to her needs. I wanted to help the sisters I visit teach gear up for conference. I put together these little kits to help.

I also plan to write a little note about conference, maybe something like this. I'm really excited for General Conference, and invite you to check it out. 

What would you put in this kit?

I'm pretty clueless about the Latter Day Saints, but I love that you are so supportive and reach out to others. Your little kits are a nice touch. Maybe some kind of schedule of church events or activities?

Oh--I should totally take something to my friends I visit (add it to my busy list) But I know I'd appreciate one, so they would too!
