Feast Upon the Words of Christ Scripture Challenge.

It has been FOREVER since I have posted!  Guess that is the life of a busy Young Womens President :)  I hope it helps any of you but I wanted to post this little punch card (and a copy of the letter I am sending) to each of my girls for a December challenge.  I am also going to have a Feast (ham dinner) in January and then have various girls bear testimony of the Book of Mormon to end the challenge!

To use the file, you SHOULD be able to just click on the full size file and then either right click and save it on your computer if you have a PC or drag it to your computer if you have a Mac.

I used the fabulous Fayette's design for this punch card.  PLEASE see this kit HERE on her website Pickleberry Pop!

Here is the letter that I wrote:
Dear

Merry Christmas!  How is one of my favorite Young Women?  :) 

Ezra Taft Benson promises: “There is a power in the Book of Mormon which will begin to flow into your lives the moment you begin a serious study of the book.  You will find greater power to resist temptation.  You will find the power to avoid deception.  You will find the power to stay on the straight and narrow path... ”  WHO WOULD NOT WANT TO PARTAKE IN THIS PROMISE!?  It’s exciting, isn’t it! 

Nephi also tell us to FEAST upon the words of Christ, for the words of Christ will tell us all things that we should do.  Yeah!  How exciting!  Seems so simple, right!? 

These promises are SO great, I want YOU to be able to have them.  So....I am excited to tell you about a challenge I have for you!  During this fun winter break, I would love you (and I) to help focus ourselves on Christ.  To do this, I am challenging you to read your scriptures daily!  Notice, I am not telling you how MUCH to read in the scriptures because I don’t want to put a number on what YOU feel you need to do to “feast”.  I have made a little punch card for you.  Just mark an “x” in each day that you read as a reminder that you have gotten it done. 

If you take this challenge with me, you will not only personally benefit with the blessings of having the Book of Mormon in your daily life, but you will be able to enjoy a FEAST with me for our activity on Tuesday, January 3.  On this day, I will be having you over for a special dinner where we can celebrate our fun challenge.  PLEASE join me, I am excited to share this together.

I love you.  I know this is a generic letter but I can PROMISE you that I love every single one of you.  I THANK YOU for making such great choices and I admire the strength that you have...every single one of you.

Hugs,

(Sister) Shyloh (Belnap)
