{Poll} What's Your Home or Visiting Teaching Style?

Comments

We've become curious about how home and visiting teaching play out in real life. For me, I call it good when my visiting teachers come over and sit at the kitchen counter while I cook Sunday dinner and we chat about work, kids, school, and life. Sometimes they share a quick message, sometimes they don't, but I always feel loved. It's funny, on the Sundays they come over, the whole family gathers in the kitchen to be involved because the informality of it makes it fun.

But I know others who would never dream of doing it this way. The home/visiting teachers are escorted to the formal living room of their home and teach of spiritual message. And then there are those who drop off cookies at the doorstep, or leave a message on the answering machine and check it off their to-do list.

I'm not suggesting there's a right or wrong way to do it, I'm just curious about how you do it. Take our poll and leave a comment below on your own personal style.
