Visiting Teaching

I have been thinking about Visiting Teaching today.  The only way I’ve ever seen it done is for the teaching companionship to either make an appointment and then sit and visit for an hour or to just stop by with a cutesie handout.

On rare occasion I have actually become friends with my partner or the sister’s I visit.  When a true friendship has occurred the results have been dramatically different.  As I have pondered this today I have determined that I am no longer content to settle for the usual random monthly visit to someone else’s home.  I am going to look for things I can do as an actual friend.  I think I am going to abandon the status quot all together.  I am going to challenge myself to find little ways to actually forge a friendship, so they know I am genuinely interested in them and in their well being.
