Christ raising Lazarus
Detail from Jesus Raises Lazarus from the Dead, by Carl Heinrich Bloch
This is part of a series of Visiting Teaching Messages featuring divine attributes of the Savior.
The scriptures teach us that Jesus Christ “received all power, both in heaven and on earth, and the glory of the Father was with him” (D&C 93:17). Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said that by this power our Savior created the heavens and earth, performed miracles, and endured the pain of Gethsemane and Calvary.1 As we come to understand this, our faith in Christ will increase, and we will become stronger.
As we make and keep temple covenants, the Lord blesses us with His power. Linda K. Burton, Relief Society general president, said: “Covenant keeping strengthens, empowers, and protects. … I recently met a dear new friend. She testified that after she had received her temple endowment, she felt strengthened with power to resist temptations.”2
Nephi bears testimony of covenant power: “I, Nephi, beheld the power of the Lamb of God, that it descended … upon the covenant people of the Lord, … and they were armed with righteousness and with the power of God in great glory” (1 Nephi 14:14).

From the Scriptures

Being filled with great compassion for Martha and Mary, Jesus Christ raised their brother Lazarus from the dead by the power of God He possessed.
Jesus arrived at Martha and Mary’s home after Lazarus had been in the grave for four days. They went to Lazarus’s tomb, and Jesus commanded that the stone covering the entrance be taken away. Jesus said to Martha, “Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?” He then prayed to God the Father and “cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.
“And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes.” (See John 11:1–45.) The Savior uses His power to redeem and empower us. Our faith in Him will increase as we remember that He is full of power and glory.

Yellow Cake Brownies

These are an easy goto dessert that my husband loves...


Box of yellow cake
1 Egg
1 Cube of Butter
Sweetened Condensed Milk
White Chocolate Chips 
Butterscotch Chocolate Chips

Set oven for 350 degrees and cook for 28-35 minutes.  

First you mix the box of cake mix with the egg and butter (my butter was straight from the fridge so I cut it smaller for easier mixing). 

Mix until you get a cookie dough texture.

Take a little over half of the dough and put it aside.  Take the other half and press it into the pam sprayed pan.  

You will then put in a cup of white chocolate and butterscotch chocolate chips, pour on 2/3 of the can of sweetened condensed milk.

 You will then roll out the other half of the dough and then use it to cover the chips & condensed milk.

Then cover it with the remainder of the sweetened condensed milk.

Here is the final look at the yummy dessert...

This is part of a series of Visiting Teaching Messages featuring aspects of the mission of the Savior.
A Savior Is Born
A Savior Is Born, by Joseph Brickey
“The Savior is the source of true peace,” said Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “Even with the trials of life, because of the Savior’s Atonement and His grace, righteous living will be rewarded with personal peace.”1 Understanding that Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace can help us find inner peace and increase our faith in Him.
Jesus Christ said: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Bearing testimony of that truth, Linda S. Reeves, second counselor in the Relief Society general presidency, said: “The Lord has been merciful to me and has helped make my burdens light. He has helped me to feel great peace.”2
Elder Richard G. Scott of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught: “The ideal place for … peace is within the walls of our own homes, where we have done all we can to make the Lord Jesus Christ the centerpiece.”3

From the Scriptures

Isaiah prophesied of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace (see Isaiah 9:6). In the Americas, Samuel the Lamanite told of signs that would accompany Christ’s birth five years later (see Helaman 14:3, 5). As the prophesied day approached, unbelievers threatened to execute all the Christians if these signs did not occur. The prophet Nephi “cried mightily unto the Lord all that day; and behold, the voice of the Lord came unto him, saying: … On the morrow come I into the world” (3 Nephi 1:12–13). The signs appeared, and with the birth of Christ, “the people began again to have peace in the land” (verse 23).
In Bethlehem, Mary “brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger” (Luke 2:7).

Here are some handouts that some have created for this message.

I know this is 2011, but we love the Christmas messages...

 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has also lunched the He is the Gift initiative to remind all that Christ was the first gift of Christmas.  #Heisthegift

You can find information about it here!!!

This month's message is one that you can pick on your own.  The LDS site says that you can chose one of the talks from the October Conference and share it.  Here are some ideas I have found.

Pioneer Party and Gift has a wonderful idea of taking quotes from the talks you like and putting them in a jar...  This is from 2011, but you can pick your talks and make your own quotes...
