FOR KIDS: (October 3-9) Isaiah 58-66, "Fasting"

Isaiah 58:6-11

These verses talk about why we fast and the blessings that come from willingly fasting.

Read the verses together and discuss what they mean. Talk about how we have been counseled to fast two meals and then donate a generous fast offering.

Read 3 Nephi 13:16 and talk about what that means for your family.

Have your child draw the meals they are giving up.

Talk about what our fast offerings are consecrated for (helping those in need in our area buy food, and pay for other needed expenses like housing). Have your child draw the blessings the family receive because of your willingness to fast and bless others.

Optional Activies:

This next Fast Sunday talk about what each of you are fasting for. Take turns praying for those things. Fill out a physical donation slip together and put cash into the envelope. Let your child give the fast offering to a member of the bishopric.

Read Isaiah 60:1-3 together and discuss ways you can help to share the light of the Savior with others. Read Matthew 5:16 and Matthew 6:3, and talk about how we should serve and that when we serve others we help others to feel God’s love for them.
