VT & HT Return & Report Tracking Sheets

LDS General Conference Week - Day 1: Return & Report Tracking Sheets for Visiting Teachers & Home Teachers. 

Life gets so busy sometimes, I couldn't remember things I'd done or not done for the sisters I Visit Teach, although I knew they knew I loved them, I didn't remember if I had said something to them, if I shared a quote or set up an appointment or even if I had brought them a treat. I'm a space case! I just needed something where I could track everything all at once and see it on one sheet.

So yes! I had to create yet another list to help keep tabs on my own Visiting Teaching & the hubby's Home Teaching too. I love it and am already using it! Just went to visit my sisters this past Sunday and it was glorious being able to check mark some boxes. Yippy!
“God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.” President Spencer W. Kimball
Don't get me wrong though. I don't do it because they are on my "list" or are a "project" to me, they are sisters I didn't know I needed who the Lord knows I can bless but who can also bless me and I love each of them. I needed this written list to remind me how to be a better friend. I wish I had this list for each one of my other friends because it has the potential to make my sisters feel the Savior's love more than just once a month. I now can remember that I am actually doing all that I can for my sisters because I usually just contact them at the end of each month. I'm the biggest procrastinator!
Sure some may think the list is a little INTENSE with the check boxes, (hey, don't download it if it's too much to handle or overwhelming) but I just couldn't bring myself to take any away after I had thought of them, so they are there for a wise purpose. You're lucky there aren't more boxes! It helps remind me to serve, to remember them, to pray for them, to love them and helps me magnify my calling as their sister in Christ and even helps me remember that I did do something when I've thought I've forgotten them. I don't want to feel like I could have done more in the vineyard, I want to feel like I did my good, my better, my best!
"Visiting teaching is a way to help us care for and about each other. It is a way for us to develop the characteristics of a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a way to make sure that no one in the Lord's kingdom is alone." -Mary Ellen Smoot 
I hope it brings peace to your life remembering how you've served your sisters, so when you are asked to Return & Report, you'll remember what a blessing you are to them and again feel of the Savior's love for you because you truly are an angel to your sisters and "a good and faithful servant."

One is for Visiting Teachers & the other for Home Teachers. It's pretty self explanatory (name, phone, address, email, birthday, faves or fave treat, & social bubbles are check marked/circled/colored-in if they use those, etc...) If you do have questions just post a comment, I'd love to know if it helps anyone else, besides just my own ADHD brain. ;)

God speed!

  2. This is a great tracking sheet! I was wondering if you would be willing to send me an editable version of the VT sheet? I would like to use this as well as alter it to have a matching ward missionary tracking sheet. Thanks!
