Ever since we fasted for the baby last January, the children have asked to fast on Fast Sunday. Telling them they were too young to fast entirely, they have chosen to have plain toast on Fast Sundays instead of fancy cereals or heaping bowls of oatmeal or some version of syrup something. It was a big deal for them, and their prayers for Kyrie have been so tender.
But with Mary’s baptism this weekend, came also her first real Fast Sunday.
And she did it.
We talked about how it was more than just not eating two meals, and Nathan suggested she start by praying to ask for help understanding fasting.
She studied all afternoon, and prepared a marvelous Family Home Evening lesson to teach the others!
She planned who would do everything, down to the detail!
I love that she knew all that we do on Monday nights!
She wrote a lovely lesson, using her new set of scriptures, For Strength of Youth, and the Gospel Principles manual. She worked so hard!
Then Nathan teased them with a Korean game, which had us rolling!
