Why do we have Home Teaching? Think about your baptism. Who baptized you?
Who was there?
What did you feel? Why were you baptized? Who do I home teach? What are their needs? How have you been blessed by when you were home taught? How can I begin to or better serve them? What do we promise to do? What does God promise to do for us? Why do we partake of the Sacrament? What can we do today make the Sacrament a more spiritual experience? Think about our Bishop. How can I serve the Bishop? What do bishops do? What direction or blessings can you seek from the Bishop Welch at this time in your life? How have the Elders blessed you? How has the Gift of the Holy Ghost blessed you? Direction? Comfort? Learning? Discussion: Think about and record your impressions: With the person next to you: Discussion: Why is that important in your life? When were you given a priesthood blessing? Share with the person next to you: When was the last time you read your Patriarchal Blessing? Think and record:
How can I prepare to receive my Patriarchal Blessing? What blessings have you already seen? What was your favorite talk from the last Conference? Will you study that talk (or a talk) again today? What are you doing to apply it into your life? Do you remember it? Think and Record: Discussion:
What are their names? Discussion: How can you show Heavenly Father that you're grateful for your baptism? Share the gospel with someone? Live more worthily? Thank him through prayer?
Has the Gift of Discernment What can you do differently to have the Spirit with your more? Will you read it your Patriarchal Blessing this week? Will you prepare to receive your Patriarchal Blessing? Who gave it and why did you like it? Joseph Smith History (JSH) 1:69 "Upon you my fellow servants, in the name of Messiah, I confer the Priesthood of Aaron, which holds the keys of the ministering of angels, and of the gospel of repentance, and of baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; and this shall never be taken again from the earth until the sons of Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in righteousness." "I testify that you will feel your heart changing as you become a faithful priesthood man. You will seek to be completely clean and administer the sacrament worthily. You will treat every young woman with kindness and respect. You will honor your parents. You will avoid offending the Spirit in what you think, say, or do. You will come to know the Lord, whom you serve, and you will ever strive to be like Him.
I testify that your faithful service in the Aaronic Priesthood will change the lives of those you serve. There are people who need your priesthood service. Your family needs you. Your quorum needs you. The Church needs you. The world needs you."
