The Visiting Teaching Message for June 2011 is on self-reliance.
Here are two great quotes from that message:
"In Relief Society, we are taught self-reliance principles and skills. Sisters can learn about budgeting, debt relief, employment qualifications, the scriptures and the gospel, teaching others to read and learn, technology, physical health, fitness, addiction prevention and recovery, social and emotional health, preventing illness, gardening, food production and storage, emergency preparedness, and many other things that will help us become self reliant."
"Under the direction of the priesthood, Relief Society continues to teach self-reliance,
to safeguard the family, and to encourage personal righteousness and acts of charity,
the pure love of Christ."
