SEPTEMBER VISITING TEACHING - PARENTHOOD IS A SACRED DUTY

In the church I attend, the LDS Church, we can accept a calling or responsibility to visit a few women in our neighborhood or ward. When we visit the women we are assigned, we are to get to know them, help them with what they may need whether physically or emotionally, and then to leave them with a spiritual message.
