Last Sundays Snippet

Oh my goodness, I need to keep up with this! There is a lot to do when you are flying solo... come back Blanche, Sue and Andrea!!

Last Sunday our lesson was given by Sister Karina, she did an amazing job teaching. There was not a face in the room that I could see who had not felt the spirit. Her testimony of the Prophet Joseph Smith was shared along with others as they felt prompted. A truly beautiful Sunday. Sister Liliane Dalton said that she had not been in Relief Society for so long and she was so thankful to be there, especially for that lesson.

We had family and friends visiting members in our ward and also Sister Lee down from Melbourne. The primary children came in for the last few minutes and sang a sweet Christmas Carol to end our meeting.

We are looking forward to Sister Angela who will be teaching us next Sunday.

Wishing you all Christmas Truffles,

New Missionaries

Sunday 13th December

Hello everyone,

Today's lesson was about the importance of family relationships and is available to read here. Brother Gary and Sister Pat did a little skit about husband and wife, this little act demonstrated jokingly how we might improve those relationships, it was pretty funny and we all got a little surprise.

Sister Pat helped us to remember that as part of a family we need to be aware of the needs of others not only ourselves. The most important relationships we have are found in our family and we can nurture these ties by spending time with those whom we really love, our family.

Thank you for teaching the lesson Sister Pat. Next week Sister Karina Thorne will be teaching for us.

We would like to thank the Sisters who have volunteered to cook meals for Danielle and Philip Loenneker. If you would like to cook a meal or are able to assist in any way please call Sister Robyn Smith and please remember the family in your prayers.

Thanks for checking in everyone. See you next Sunday... not long until Christmas now.

xxx Fiona

I almost forgot, the lesson manuals are available for next year. I will have them out next Sunday for Sisters to collect.

Sunday Snippet 6th Dec

This will be my last post for a couple of months. I will be interstate from this week until the end of January. Sister Sue is in the USA at the moment until Jan, so poor ol' Fiona will be holding the oars on her own for a bit. Please be willing to help out if she needs, and keep an eye on her for me, I know she's tuff but everyone needs support and encouragement.


  • Sat 12th Dec: ward Christmas activity 6.30-8.00pm
  • Sun 13th Dec: First Presidency Christmas Devotional
  • Sun 20th Dec: Expression of Christmas 6.30pm
  • Remember your Christmas Hampers are DUE NOW.
  • Our Stake RS quilting project has been postponed to the new year - unless you have time between now and Christmas to help do some cutting out - if so contact sister Debbie.
Today's lesson was led by me (Blanche) and was based on President Monson's Sunday morning address at General Conference. The talk is titled "What have I done for someone today?" and is found in the November '09 Ensign. It's a lovely talk so please try to find time to read it for yourself.
President Monson expressed concern that many of us are living side by side and not heart to heart. He has urged us to find out what the needs of others are and find ways we can help.

"My brothers and sisters, we are surrounded by those in need of our attention, our encouragement, our support, our comfort, our kindness—be they family members, friends, acquaintances, or strangers. We are the Lord’s hands here upon the earth, with the mandate to serve and to lift His children. He is dependent upon each of us".

President Monson encouraged us all to ask ourselves the question; what have I done for someone today?

What better time to be reminded of how important it is to serve and help others than at this time when we celebrate with the rest of the world, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope that we can all heed the counsel of our dear prophet and do something for someone every day.

See you next year,

Sunday Snippet 29th November

Does anyone else have Christmas holiday brain. I put my tree up early this year and I think it has ensured the festive season come early. I have been in holiday mode, forgetting about a lot of things that I should be doing, like the flowers on Sunday!! Sorry Dorothy... I am however, very grateful for Andrea and the lovely plastic floral creations she had put together for use on occasions like Sunday when someone forgets it is their turn. Thank you Andrea.

Last Sunday our lesson was given by Bishop Smith, he spoke about our testimonies and how they need to be constantly nourished and we should not become complacent in our worship. Through Prayer and regular meaningful Scripture Study we can preserve our faith. Bishop reminded us of his talk a while ago where he repeated six times, A testimony is when the heart tells us what the mind does not know. The talk by Elder Dale E. Renlend was used to illustrate this point. Please talk some time to read this talk by clicking here.

Please remember to bring items for Christmas hampers.
Tues 1st Dec there is a farewell for Sister Shannon at Tina McGowans house 7pm, bring a plate to share.
12th December is the ward Christmas Celebration at the Chapel 6.30pm - 8.30pm.
If you have Children in Primary Kirsten Toselli needs baby photos for her sharing time on Sunday, Please contact Kirsten.
Only 25 sleeps until Christmas!!
4th Dec is the opening for Brother and Sister Stewarts Exhibiton, contact Angela for more information.

See you next Sunday,
Fiona xx

Thanksgiving Dinner

Just a few photos from our Thanksgiving dinner held last Wednesday evening. Thanks to Chelsea and Sue for a great night. And also to the YM and leaders for doing such a great job helping in the kitchen.
Sorry about the photo quality, these were taken on my phone!

We began the night in the chapel where we viewed a short dvd about being thankful then we moved into the rec hall for our dinner (Roast Chicken and Potatoes and an assortment of yummy salads followed by a variety of scrumptious desserts).
In the middle of the room was our 'Thanksgiving Tree'. On our table we found gum leaves and markers, we wrote on the leaves something we are thankful for then hung them on the tree. This is Carmen's and it says "Being able to stay home and be a mum".

Angus, Jonathon, and Isaac - three of our helpers.

The boys having some dinner - they perched themselves out of sight on the stage behind the curtains. L-R Angus, Josh, Ethan, Campbell, Hayden, Isaac and Campbell in the front.

Bishopric member Brother Bruce - working on his dishpan hands.

Katrina, Alice, Carmen, Jenny, Tina

Charlotte, Toni, Liz, Rhiannon and Robyn behind Rhi

Between courses we made nativity calendars. Brown paper bags were stamped with numbers from 1 - 24. In each bag we placed a strip of paper with a suggestion for that day of an activity to do with your family or friends to get you in the Christmas spirit. Suggestions were things like reading about the birth of the savior from the scriptures, Stargazing on the trampoline, eating fish 'n' chips at the beach, baking biscuits and delivering them to your neighbours, decorating the Christmas tree and so on. The bags were hole punched and tied together with ribbon.

In the foreground are [L-R] Mary, Andrea, Camilla and Barb

L-R Larissa, Debbie, Andrea, Kirsten, Fiona, Cindy?, and Karina

L-R Marj, Elaine, Helen, Shannon, Pat, and Angela

I think it's safe to say a fun night was had by all. It's nice to take time and reflect on the things we are thankful for and to express our gratitude to family and friends and most importantly to our Father in Heaven.

Sunday Snippet


  • General Priesthood Meeting 7pm 22nd Nov @ Stake Center
  • Ward RS Thanksgiving dinner this Wed @ Chapel 7-8.30pm
  • Teaching Symposium @ Stake Center 28th Nov 10.45am
  • Christmas Hampers to be in by the end of the month
  • Ward Christmas activity 12th Dec
Today's lesson was led by sister Angela Stewart and was based on this talk given by Elder Oaks. Please try to make time to read this talk. I think it is a very timely reminder to us all that we should be anxiously engaged in acts of service. It's not a difficult thing to find a need and fill it. We hear it all the time; "lose yourself in service and it is there that you will find yourself". I believe that this is because when we are selflessly serving others we are taking on Christ-like attributes. We are most like our Saviour when we willingly serve and most unlike Him when we choose not to. We 'find' ourselves because we discover who it is our Father in Heaven wants us to become.
It is my sincerest hope that each of us can appreciate the need for service in all it's many forms, that we can serve each other, side by side, and help each other to reach our divine potential.

I particularly like the end of President Oaks talk:

Each of us should apply that principle [of unselfish service] to our attitudes in attending church. Some say “I didn’t learn anything today” or “No one was friendly to me” or “I was offended” or “The Church is not filling my needs.” All those answers are self-centered, and all retard spiritual growth.

In contrast, a wise friend wrote:

“Years ago, I changed my attitude about going to church. No longer do I go to church for my sake, but to think of others. I make a point of saying hello to people who sit alone, to welcome visitors, … to volunteer for an assignment. …

“In short, I go to church each week with the intent of being active, not passive, and making a positive difference in people’s lives. Consequently, my attendance at Church meetings is so much more enjoyable and fulfilling.”

All of this illustrates the eternal principle that we are happier and more fulfilled when we act and serve for what we give, not for what we get.

Something to think about I reckon...

See you on Wednesday

Not Sunday Snippet

I put my hand up for the job of updating the blog, but failed to realise that the Sunday Snippet should be posted on Sunday... I will do better next week!

21st November Stake Fireside
25th November Ward Thanksgiving Dinner
28th November Teaching Symposium
Stake Temple trip Show weekend in 2010, idea is to attend temple from Wednesday to Saturday of that weekend.

Last Sunday our lesson was given by the Stake Relief Society Presidency, with a guest panel, President Prebble and Brother Dale. The lesson was taken from a talk given by Elder David Bednar, entitled, 'Things as they really are'.

This talk is worth a read and can be found on the church website by clicking here.

Larisa Richardson ended the lesson with her comment that life is all about balancing our time, we are all at different stages and we need to make careful judgement about how we best spend our time.

See you all on Saturday!

Sunday Snippet

This is the first of what we hope will be an ongoing thing...we are going to try to post something every Sunday! It will include announcements and a brief outline of the RS lesson. We are very aware that relief society sisters serving in Primary and Young Women, and those who have to be away from our ward on assignments, for work or for personal reasons can sometimes feel a bit out of the loop. So this is to try, in some small way, to get around that. We have been asking someone to take notes during RS time. These will be photocopied and distributed as best we can on Sunday's after church. If you fall into the category of someone who would appreciate a copy please seek out Fiona Rea, Sue Smith or myself. As you can well imagine trying to get around everyone is problematic and people will miss out from time to time. That is why we will also update the blog with the same information.
So...that being said please be patient with us as we find our feet n our new callings and try our best to serve the sisters of our ward.

  • 15th November - Seminary and institute graduation
  • 17th November - Kenneth Cope Fireside
  • 21st November - Stake RS Fireside
  • 23rd November - Sunday School Teaching symposium
  • 25th November - Ward RS Thanksgiving dinner (Young Women invited)
  • Christmas Hampers to Tim Watson by the end of the month.

5 minute music was a song from the Primary Sacrament Presentation (which was today) sung to us by Chelsea Parsons and her daughter Darby.

The Young Women visited with us today for opening exercises. It is always nice to have an injection of 'youth'. I love to have the chance to recite the Young Women theme with them and to hear their sweet voices when we sing. The Laurels and some of the YW Presidency stayed for the lesson.

Today's lesson was taught by sister Pat Barwick. Lesson 40 JSM.

Firstly we were paired with someone we didn't know very well and we had to find out the following information : name, members of their family, about their home, favourite food, colour, movie star, their 'decade' age.
We discussed what it is that makes a friend a friend. We were banned from using the word 'loyal'!!!
An extensive list was compiled and included:
  • someone you can relax and chill out with
  • unconditional love
  • common interests/ experiences
  • reliability
  • being able to share feelings/thoughts with them and wanting to.
  • a feeling of love for your friend and them for you.
  • 'really' talks to you
  • good listener
  • makes you feel happy
  • kindred spirits/spirit world friend?
  • mutual attraction/admiration
  • no awkward silences
  • undemanding of time - doesn't expect reciprocation of things they happily do for you
  • helps and cares for you
  • helps you be the best you can be/ brings out the best in you
  • believes in you and supports you
Pat read us part of a story from the JULY 2009 ENSIGN 'Am I of Worth', about a sister who had been very successful and suddenly found herself very ill and mostly bedridden. She began to question her worth. What could she possibly have to offer now? we didn't hear the end of the story but came to our own conclusion that Heavenly Father loves us all unconditionally and we ALL have worth, we all have something to offer.

Finished with reading from Joseph Smith Manual (JSM) p 461 "How good and glorious...are true friends".

We closed by singing a primary song "We are Different".

After church it was ICE-CREAM Sunday (ticked off I missed out AGAIN for the second time in a row!!!!!!!!) to celebrate the wonderful job the kids and their leaders did with the presentation today. They had a wonderful display of photos and drawings of the primary children and what they had learned over the past year.

See you next week x

New Presidency

On Sunday the 25th Oct I and my councelors were released.

Congratulations to the new Relief Society President, Sister Blanche Sayers and her councilors, sisters Fiona Rea and Sue Smith.

I would like to thank everyone who served with me, especially those with callings in Relief Society. Thank you to Bishop Smith and the Priesthood bretheren for their support, and the members of the Ward Council. Also to all the sisters who were so willing to help when asked. Thanks also for all the service that is freely given without the necessity of being asked. It has been a blessing to be able to interact with so many special sisters. I am very grateful for the love and friendship that has been shared.

I'm looking forward to just enjoying Relief Society lessons and activities in the future as well as continuing to enjoy the company of the sisters of our Ward.
Love Debbie

I was just browsing a few of the blogs I follow and saw a post on
the Rosny Ward RS Blog I thought was worth mentioning. We are always on the look out for good buys, especially when it comes to food storage and bulk buys. Check out this place : Food lovers on Albert (if you haven't already). It is located next to Montile Tile at 49 Albert Rd, and supplies bulk nuts, beans, lentils, bread mix, dried fruits, spices, oils, pasta, rice, drinking chocolate etc. Not all Australian made, but well priced. Apparently they have been there for quite some time but I was unaware they even existed! Seems as though they stock some really good buys.
I'll be heading out there this week.
If anyone else knows about helpful info like this please let us know.

Thanks Rosny RS for sharing!

Compassionate service

Jodi has been in hospital with pneumonia. We have organised a roster of sisters to visit her between 11.00 - 3.00 each week day except Wednesday. She needs help watching her children so she can rest and recover. She does not require food etc. but I'm sure if you were to offer to do ironing etc she may find something you can do while you are there.
This is the roster.
14th Bec/Shannon, 15th Andrea G. 17th Rosie, 18th Peta.
21st ? 22nd Marj 24th Debbie 25th Peta

Seeing as though Chelsea has put up all of the recipes from our 'Thrifty, Nifty Ladies' Enrichment. I thought I'd better put up some photos from the night. Unfortunately I only remembered I had my camera there about half way through the night so I only have a few pics.

It was a fun night.
Stay tuned though because we have more great nights planned for the near future.

recipes from HFPE

Apologies for not posting this straight after the Enrichment activity. We have had Rowan in hospital with food in her lung and pneumonia.

It was a really fun activity, thanks to all for coming. I'm just posting the recipes that we made that night.

Air Fresheners










  1. 1
    Basic: Pour the cup of distilled water into the spray bottle.
  2. 2
    Add the drops of essential oils and shake very well.
  3. 3
    Cap the bottle, and allow to sit for a few hours before using.
  4. 4
    Shake the bottle before each use to evenly distribute the scented oil throughout the water.
  5. 5
    Use the label to describe what sort of air freshener each bottle is.
  6. 6
    And be sure to use the fine mist setting on your bottle, so the spray will be distributed nicely in the air.

Super Laundry Powder recipe

PREP: 10mins

1 bar of Sard Wonder Soap
2 bars of Pure Soap
2 cups of Borax
3 cups of Lectric Washing Soda

Grate the bars of soap very fine, either by hand or in your food processor. Mix all ingredients together. That is it. Store the powder in an airtight container and use one tablespoon per load.

* You can use generic brand soap if you wish
* You can use 3 bars of pure soap, I like to use 1 Sard Wonder Soap bar because it has stain removing qualities. (If you use only pure soap it will cut the price down to about $6 to make the powder)
*There is no need to use fabric softener with this powder, as the washing soda actually acts as a softener. This saves you more money.
* Always make sure your water level is set correctly so the powder has enough water to dissolve in.
* You can dissolve the powder in a cup of warm water before adding it to your load if you wish.
* All of these ingredients can be found in the 'laundry aisle' of your supermarket.

Healthy Alternative to Moth Balls

dried rosemary, mint and lavender
dried thyme
8 ounces whole cloves

cedarwood essential oil (find at Goulds)

Mix herbs and sprinkle with oil, place some in the center of a bandanna or handkerchief (or in a bag, available at chickenfeed).

On Sunday Sisters Fran and Betty were released from their Stake Relief Society callings as Councellors to Sis. Louella.

We have been invited to attend the Stake Relief Society Service activity on Saturday the 23rd May at 8.00 -9.30.  Donations of Journals, Photo Albums and Recipe books would be appreciated to donate to the victims of the Victorian Bush Fires.

You may notice that the sidebar of the blog has finally been updated.
I've been very slow getting back into things since returning from my trip overseas, Christmas and other events. 
Thanks to Peta for keeping the blog going in my absence.  
We are wondering,  in light of the new Stake Website with a ward page, should we keep the blog going.  We would appreciate your opinion. If we don't get much response we will probably just use the Stake website and see how that goes. You can view the website by clicking here, then go to Stake and Ward Websites. You will need your membership no (which is on your temple recomend, or see the ward clerk), as well as your confirmation date. Once you have registered you will only need your own password to view the page.
