The Family: A Proclamation to the World - Post #3

10 Steps to Happiness
Post #3

      2. Faith

A great way to teach our children about faith is to teach them the law of the fast. Four years ago one of my friends had a baby who was born very premature. She posted his story on Facebook with a cute picture of him and his yellow stuffed ducky. I sat my kids down and showed them this teeny tiny baby and explained to them about fasting and prayer. I explained that our added fast could help that baby and comfort his family. That Saturday night after dinner we started our fast together and prayed for that baby and his family. Today, years later we still like to check in on that family and that adorable baby boy who is four now and growing up nicely with his little duck.

(Here is baby Logan's Grandma's blog post if you want to see him growing...)

Our ward is doing a 40 day fast right now for missionary work. This is another great way to show our kids faith.
