I loved how the message this month focused on the joy of families, and how family happiness is can be found and elevated by living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Elder Richard G. Scott said that a Christ-centered home "provides the greatest assurance for peace and refuge in our homes."

The world is a crazy place and I peace and refuge are something that I desperately need.  

I'm so grateful for the comfort that this knowledge brings to me and my family.
For my handout this month, I wanted to give my sisters a gift along with the message, so I found this cute free printable of The Family: A Proclamation to the World and enlarged it to 16x20 at the print shop, and then framed it, and stuck the message to the back.  
Quick and easy, yet meaningful.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and that the coming year is full of peace and happiness.

Happy Visiting Teaching!

You know those recipe videos on Facebook?
The ones that are mesmerizing and flash through all ingredients and steps to a recipe in about 30 seconds?
Well, I saw one the other day from Pillsbury that I decided I needed to try and it was super easy.
All you need is some chocolate chip cookie dough, pecan chips, 12ish caramels, chocolate chips, and sea salt.
First, take the dough and shape into balls, and then roll in pecan chips (or not if you don't like nuts). Bake according to package directions and let them cool for a few minutes.  
Meanwhile, melt your caramels in the microwave with a little milk or cream for about one minute, then take a few chocolate chips and melt them in the microwave.  Indent the center of the cookie and fill with melted caramel.  Then drizzle melted chocolate on top and sprinkle sea salt.  Stick them in the fridge for a few minutes to set and you have a fancy, schmancy super yummy, semi-homemade treat!
Happy mmmonday!
