{Come Follow Me} September ‘Come Follow Me’ Handouts: Why Do We Fast?

 Today I am sharing 2 Fasting Handouts that would be great for your ‘Why Do We Fast’ lesson that is part of this month’s “Come Follow Me” topic for the Youth. I have included 3 different printables that can be used to help the youth ponder and learn what is being taught. I hope you enjoy!

Why Do We Fast Lesson Handout

First…Is a two-sided handout with the scripture references from the lesson outline. The young women can look up each of the scriptures to learn more of why we fast. The other side of the handout has questions that the young women can answer as they read ‘The Blessings of a Proper Fast’ by Carl B. Pratt
I recommend printing these onto white cardstock, so they’re a little more durable, but regular paper works fine too. You can have this as one handout, glue each side together to create one handout, or simply hand them out as 2 separate handouts.

Another part of the lesson asks the girls to make a three-column chart on a piece of paper. I decided to go ahead and create a printable chart that you can hand to each of the young women. The girls are asked to read a scripture and write the different things they read about fasting in the appropriate column. Here is my three-column printable that you can use for each of your YW.
