December VT Message

The message is entitled, "Nurture Through Compassionate Service." One of the passages from Sister Barbara Thompson talks about doing our part to help build the kingdom of God... and the fact that we will have help in doing this. She then quotes Joseph Smith: "If you live up to your privileges, the angels cannot be restrained from being your associates." Use a magnet designed just for this particular gift. It has the quote from Joseph Smith on it, as well as a picture of an angel. And here is the exciting part...The angel pictured on the magnet was the first angel to decorate an LDS temple in our dispensation. It stood on top of the original Nauvoo temple. It is very vintage looking - and instead of being vertical (like most others) the angel is horizontal. In one of the angel's hand is an open book (presumably the Book of Mormon) and in the other hand he holds a trumpet - announcing to the world the gospel. See Revelations 14:6-7. You can purchase the magnet at Pioneer Party and Gift in Lehi, or just put a picture of an angel with the message or even make your own magnet!
