Visiting Teaching Message: More Diligent And Concerned At Home

by Molly on November 1, 2009

Elder David A. Bednar shared his testimony in General Conference last month, and his testimony was beautiful.

“Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and . . . the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children” (“The Family: A Proclamation to the World,Liahona, Oct. 2004, 49; Ensign, Nov. 1995, 102). For these and other eternally important reasons, we should be more diligent and concerned at home.

May every spouse, every child, and every parent be blessed to communicate and receive love, to bear and be edified by strong testimony, and to become more consistent in the seemingly small things that matter so much.

In these important pursuits we will never be left alone. Our Heavenly Father and His Beloved Son live. They love us and know our circumstances, and They will help us to become more diligent and concerned at home. Of these truths I testify in the sacred name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

We can become more diligent and concerned at home as we are more faithful in learning, living, and loving the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.

Elder Bednar gave 3 Suggestions on How We Can Be More Diligent & Concerned At Home:

  1. Express Love—and Show It
  2. Bear Testimony—and Live It
  3. Be Consistent

I personally (me Molly) don’t think that we can ever say or show our love and appreciation enough. Some of my fondest memories are those of no particular activity or thing I received, but that of how I felt. These are the things that move us as humans. If we can show our love, and do so in a way that all around us know that we care and that we are sincere, we will then have left a significant mark on history and in the lives of those around us, and hopefully that will be our families.

Elder Bednar’s address is very inspired and one that you would greatly benefit by reading, you will find it here on LDS.org.
