our new toothbrushes.
Lu demonstrating the proper prayer posture.


Last night for FHE we talked about prayer. Something that is always good to discuss. We briefly went over the mechanics of how to do it. Which of course the children are already familiar with, and when to do it, any time. We talked about Daniel and the lions den, and Shadrach, Meschach and Abednigo and their commitment to worship God and pray to Him no matter what. We discussed their example of faith. (plus a little fiery peril and man eating beasts are always good)

Then we talked about how prayer helps us.

Finally I handed out new toothbrushes to everyone onto which I had attached a small tag that said "pray now". Sunday night at BYD the Bishop spoke to us about prayer and about a challenge he received years ago to pick a thing he does every day and in his mind connect that with prayer. He choose brushing his teeth. Every time he brushes he also takes time to kneel in prayer. I thought that was a great idea and presented it to the children, and Big. Everyone agreed, and everyone was happy with their new toothbrushes, except E who didn't want a sponge bob one.
Then we had fruit pizza for refreshments.

We just had that FHE last week. I've been reminding David all week that when he prays Heavenly Father will answer his prayers. Kind of put me in a pickle after his breakfast prayer this morning. I put the story up on my blog. I think you'd get a kick out of it.

PS - we got the crab soaps and lotion! Thank you so much! Davy adores those crabs. He won't let me use them. ;)

And good job on having FHE!
