Sunday Activity: Faith


To make a book to remind you that the word of God is like a seed, mount page 15 on heavy paper. Cut out the four large panels, and punch or cut holes where indicated. Arrange the pages so that the seed is planted and grows into a tree. Fasten the pages together with yarn or string.

To watch the seed grow, cut out the long panels and the heart box. Cut along the broken lines in the heart. Form one long strip by gluing the long panels together where indicated. Thread the strip up through the bottom slit in the heart and down through the top slit. Pull the strip through the heart, and watch the seed grow.

Five For Friday

Our "Faith" Sunflower cookies (see Monday Musings and Tuesday Treats of this week)

Braden made himself a "Reading Corner' in the coat closet


Mikaela went to Homecoming last Saturday...we weren't able to get pictures of her date as it was Stake Conference and I had to speak (yikes!) so we took them before we had to go.
