I have recently begun serving another service mission for the church. I have already served 2 with my husband, and this one is just for me. My husband was called to be the bishop of my ward a couple of years ago, and I wanted to do something more beneficial with my time, that he is away from home serving our ward. So..... I decided to serve a service mission from my home. I am a member of the LDS Response Team, and we are the ones who answer all the questions that people write in while on LDS.org. Today, I took on a question about Visiting Teaching, and was so happy to do the research to help the Customer, as we call them, to find what she was looking for. She was looking for a specific talk by Mary Ellen Edmunds, given at the 2011 BYU Women's Conference. The talk is titled "Visiting Teaching: Making a Difference by Small and Simple Means Beyond Statistics. I didn't go to that Women's conference, so I was excited to find out about this talk and post the links for all of my blog followers to access as well as this particular customer. She thought she would like to use this talk to be the focal point of a Visiting Teaching Conference. I totally agree that this would be wonderful, so I thought I would share the links with you.

I hope that all of you will go to these links and enjoy this wonderful talk. Thank you Sister Edmonds, for your wonderful message about Visiting Teaching.
