Why Do We Fast?

Get this week's lesson here.

I have never been so HUNGRY while preparing a lesson.  All week I found myself constantly snacking whenever I would sit down to work on this...

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
John 6:35

To help the girls answer common questions about fasting I put together some Q&A puzzles.  The questions can be on the board and each person takes turns reading and matching their answer puzzle pieces.

When I printed these out I used card stock paper (P.S. Card stock paper has been my BEST FRIEND ever since I became a YW advisor.  Love, love, LOVE card stock).  I did one puzzle per page so the questions are big enough to read on the board.  Then I printed out smaller puzzles with two per page for each young women to take home and use to teach their next family home evening lesson.

Also, the other week I saw one of the girls filling out her tithing slip and wanted to make sure she was filling it out right.  To give the girls a little practice with their tithing slips and understand what it will be like paying tithing and fast offerings when they have large families, I'm bringing cards from the game of LIFE.  Each girl can have a different income and roll a die to see "how many kids they'll have" and fill out their practice slips with the different scenarios.  

SIDE NOTE: Was I the only child who always wanted to have the SUPERSTAR career when I grew up?  
Someday, Jess... Someday.  


  1. I love this idea-is there a way to print out the puzzle pieces?

    1. I think you should be able to pull the picture over and drag it to your desktop then print it from there ;)
