    Prayer Power

    For 2 Nephi 31–33

    • Sing “I Pray in Faith” (Children’s Songbook, 14).

    • Heavenly Father wants us to pray to Him. Read “Praying for Uncle Dan” (page FJ8).

    • Think of someone who could use your prayers. Remember to pray for them with your family and in your own prayers. You could also decorate a card or send a message to let them know you care. What else could you do to help them?

    Building Blocks of Faith

    For Jacob 1–4

    • Sing “The Wise Man and the Foolish Man” (Children’s Songbook, 281, or page 9).

    • The prophet Jacob taught that God can help us make our faith “unshaken” (Jacob 4:6–7). What’s one thing you can do to help your faith grow strong?

    • Now build a tower out of blocks or other things at home. How strong can you make it?

    Fruit Fun

    For Jacob 5–7

    • Sing “Dare to Do Right” (Children’s Songbook, 158).

    • The prophet Jacob taught about missionary work by telling a story about trees. He compared sharing the gospel to helping trees grow good fruit (see Jacob 5).

    • Cut out paper fruit in different colors. Have everyone write one way they can share the gospel. You could even make a tasty fruit treat for dessert (see Treat Time)!

    Scripture Story Pop-up

    For Enos–Words of Mormon

    • Sing “A Child’s Prayer” (Children’s Songbook, 12–13).

    • Learn about Enos! Read his story on page FJ4 or in Enos 1:1–12.

    • Do the craft on pages 24–25 to make a scripture scene of his story. You could also use these pages to talk about how to pray.

    Treat Time

    Apple Nachos

    Arrange apple slices on a plate and drizzle caramel and melted chocolate on top. Add toppings like chocolate chips, crushed graham crackers, or sprinkles.

    Sweet-Potato Fries

    Peel 2 large sweet potatoes and cut them into strips. Place strips on cookie sheet and drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 450°F (230°C) for 25 minutes, stirring fries occasionally.

    Cocoa Bean Dip

    Strain and rinse well 1 16-oz can black beans (about 450 g). Blend until smooth with 1 tablespoon water, 1/3 cup honey, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and 2 teaspoons coconut oil (optional). Serve with crackers, strawberries, or apple slices for dipping.
