A Visiting Teaching Example

I don't know about you guys, but I am not the best at Visiting Teaching. It sounds like such an easy idea. You have a companion, you have a few girls (3-4 if you have a lot), and you just visit them once a month. 
Well, it should be easy. 
I should preface by saying that I am the visiting teaching coordinator for my ward. Which means that everyone reports whether or not they've done their visiting teaching to my supervisors and then they report to me. as the visiting teaching coordinator, I should be really good at visiting teaching, right? Right. Am I? 
But I wanted to talk today about my little sister. She is one of my supervisors and she is an amazing example to me of good visiting teaching. She is one of those, we visit every month and bring you a little something most times, and if we don't make it to visit you, we have tried pretty hard and we'll still probably drop something off. Holy run on sentence. 
She really cares about her girls, just like you should for visiting teaching. Not to mention that any time I've been down a companion, she has been willing to go with me. I am so grateful for the example that she has set for me. It makes me want to be a better visiting teacher. 
It makes me want to be a better friend overall. My little sister is one of the most fiercely loyal people I know. She shows true love for those she visits and her friends. It's the kind of example you hope to find, but not one you'd necessarily expect to find in your little sister. She's so amazing and I'm so grateful for her and that she shows me how to be better, especially when it comes to loving people.

Who's an example to you?
