Is Not This the Fast That I Have Chosen? Family Home Evening Lesson
I’m joining up with some fantastic bloggers to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Family Home Evening program. We all prepared FHE lessons based on talks from the latest General Conference. I chose to prepare a Family Home Evening lesson on President Eyring’s talk on fasting and fast offerings, because I know it is an area in which I could really use encouragement and something I’d like my children to understand more fully.
- Watch or read the “Is Not This the Fast We Have Chosen?” by President Eyring
- Print the coloring page below.
- Prepare to watch this video about how fast offerings are used. as part of the lesson
“Sister Abie Turay, lives in Sierra Leone. A civil war began in 1991. It ravaged the country for years. Sierra Leone was already one of the poorest countries in the world. “During the war, it was unclear who [controlled] the country—banks … closed, government offices were shuttered, police forces [were ineffective against rebel forces], … and there was chaos, killing and sorrow. Tens of thousands of people lost their lives and more than two million people were forced from their homes to avoid the slaughter.
Share your testimony or share a personal story about when you or a loved one were blessed by fasting and/or fast offerings.
Read Matt 25:40 and discuss how it applies to fasting and fast offerings.
