Relief Society Newsletter Ideas

Simplest Newsletter
I once had a Visiting Teaching route where I sent a list of people something in the mail each month.  I started writing a newsletter to them.  My goal was to keep these less-active sisters I wrote to connected with our Branch.  I wanted it to be an easy transition for them when they returned by knowing what was going on.  As Relief Society Secretary, I expanded on the idea.

This example shows you the simplest form I've used, but most of the last year I had a spotlight where I took a picture of a sister and wrote a paragraph about her (including her calling).  Hopefully, this helped folks old and new, get to know people. 

I have also included regular short "articles" entitled Pursuit of ExcellenceProvident LivingToday's Family3-Month Clip & File Food Storage Recipes, as well as other really good quotes.  I put in phone numbers for compassionate service leader and visiting teaching coordinators as well. 

For better viewing of the newsletters, click on each picture to enlarge.  (Graphics are Dazzle Daze by D.J. Inkers at www.djinkers.com).
