LDS Printables

My wife loves to have little sayings/phrases printed up and put around the house. I recently came across the Mormon Mommy Blogs web site. They have a tag called “free lds printables” that has all sorts of neat things to print. There are some phrases from General Conference, things for visiting teaching, and more. As I type this, my wife isn’t home, so I’ve emailed her the link. I’m sure she’ll be thrilled 🙂

ReturnAndReport.org

There are lots of great sites out there that provide tools for members in their callings. Unfortunately, the Church has not officially recognized any of them. Until now, that is…

The LDS Tech recently announced the winner of their inaugural LDS Tech Awards (“the purpose is to publicly and formally celebrate the technical achievements of those who are sharing their skills with the Church.”. The winner in 2008 was ReturnAndReport.org:

Return and Report.org is a tool that assists Relief Society, Elders Quorum and High Priest Group Leaders with their Home or Visiting teaching responsibilities. The tool has two tiers. The first tier provides a scheduled email reminder to each individual teacher with a personalized message from their leaders. The second tier adds the ability for the teachers to click on a link and report on their efforts. Additionally, the second tier allows teachers to send comments to their leaders or companions or even request an interview with their leaders. This gives the leaders key visibility regarding who has been visited and when. This tool frees up leaders and gives them the necessary information to focus on the needs of the individuals they are responsible for.

I haven’t tried it, but it looks impressive.
