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

November 2014 Visiting Teaching

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...
