Between YW's Camp and the 4th Year Adventure things are a little behind. But, nice things are happening behind the blog. This is one.
Saw family this weekend at a baptism. Our Geri (mother, grandmother, all around nice gal) made us these Temple Name Bracelets. Used for keeping track of the proxy names in a temple session. She made them using stretchy cord, beads, clips, and a little super glue on the knot. It's a great gift idea and I'm glad I was lucky enough to get one.
Do you still need an idea for a unique Father's Day gift? Here's an easy one: make a profile poster like the one above! All you need is a picture and some facts about the father in your life. I created this on the computer, but you can use an actual poster or paper and hand write everything. It's a great idea for kids to write down all the things they love about their dad!
This post is part of a promotion with FamilySearch.
I did a post last year around this time on my personal site, Shannon's Studio, but thought I'd share it here. It's a Young Women's Personal Progress Divine Nature Value Experience #3. Wow, that was a mouth full. This value experience doesn't have to be done on Father's Day, but it might be a nice incentive. Read more about it HERE.
It's crunch time, Ladies! Only 12 full days left until Father's Day! Here are some quick and easy ideas for Father's Day:

Some people really get fasting. I don't think I'm one of them. I do it, just not to the depth that the principle can go. I'm working in the right direction though and I'm happy with that.
Teaching kids about fasting is even harder than teaching yourself. We usually start to prep our kids at 7 and give them the option to fast. They start with us but have difficulty keeping at it all day but the pressure is off so they don't feel guilty when they don't make it. They're practicing. Then by 8 they've gotten a feel for fasting and know it's time to go all day.
One of my daughters was complaining of headaches every fast Sunday until I reminded her to hydrate herself on Saturday in preparation for fasting. Some of the others I've told to go say a prayer when they get especially hungry.
So, what do you say to kids to help them with fasting? What tips work for you? We like ideas. Please share.
