I have gained a better testimony of visiting teaching as I have really taken the time to dive into the lessons and make a VERY special effort to personalize the lesson for the woman I am sharing it with. This has helped me to reclaim my individual identity as Lindsay--who can be humorous, and who can critically think and expand on ideas.
Lately, my routine has caused me to feel like a very bland and muted person. I just, sleep, go to work, make dinner, play with Enoch, put Enoch to bed, let Shaun do his homework--take a shower, dry my hair, watch a show on Hulu, go to bed...start again. Planning my visiting teaching messages has proven to be an exhilaration excercise for my mind to reinterpret and process the message from the church to suit the needs of Julia (The woman I visit teach). I have felt really happy and it has shaken up my routine and made me more aware of how to use my free time in a rewarding manner. Yeah!
