The Family Proclamation


Because the quote from the March 2009 Visiting Teaching Message says to "hold fast to [the family] proclamation" you can give the Fast Break Candy Bar with a copy of "The Family - A Proclamation to the World."

You can pick up a nice color printed original from the Church Distribution (if you live in Utah) for free, order it online for free or print the PDF file yourself.

Wrap a ribbon around it and attach this quote:
Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles: “I call upon members of the Church and on committed parents, grandparents, and extended family members everywhere to hold fast to [the family] proclamation, to make it a banner not unlike General Moroni’s ‘title of liberty,’ and to commit ourselves to live by its precepts.

Remember to highlight the word "fast" if you decide to give a Fast Break Candy Bar and "[the family] proclamation" if you decide to give a printed copy of The Family A Proclamation to the World.

Bonus: If you want to do even more you could also frame The Family A Proclamation to the World and gift it to your sister ready to display in her home.


  1. WOW! What a super cute VT handout! I love it! I can't wait to give it to the three sisters I visit. Thanks! Looking forward to April...

  2. Whoops... I ment to post that comment on the Shamrock idea... I think this chocolate bar idea is great too, but I live in Canada and they don't sell "Fast Break" candy bars. But another really good idea!

    I just want to say thanks for the link to the PDF file for the Family Proclamation. I was looking for one for my VT lesson this month! I printed it out on cardstock paper and it looks store-bought! I am stoked! Thanks so much! Great blog btw... I believe I may come back later when I have time to look through your ideas. Thanks again!

  4. My friend referred me to your sight and I have loved it. I have shared a card and the bookmark with some of my v.t. sisters and they have loved them. Thanks for sharing your talent with the rest of us.

  5. This is great! I LOVE that the title is PINK!! :) Thank you so much!
