Front Porch Project

Ever since we moved into this house two years ago, I’ve wanted to do something with the posts on our front porch.  They were a really rough cedar and they were faded and didn’t seem to really go with the house.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to stain them darker or paint them white with some molding on the top and the bottom.

November Visiting Teaching Message {Conference Preserves}


What an amazing General Conference last month!  I feel so blessed to have been able to watch and learn and feel the Spirit during the messages that were given, and am so excited to preserve and share some of my favorite quotes with you and your Visiting Teaching sisters.


To make your own Conference Preserves, you will need a jar {I used pint-sized} Page 1 of the quotes, and Page 2 of the quotes, the label, and a small treat.  Cut along the lines, fold, assemble and share!

Happy Visiting Teaching!
