Why do we fast?  September Young Women Lesson.

We have a printable teaching package for you and also free printable talk pamphlets!

This great teaching package is available HERE.

It is also part of our September combo package HERE.

The talk pamphlets are at the end of this article.

This package comes has 20 pages full of learning activities.  All of our learning activities are focused on helping those you are teaching learn for themselves.  Just choose the ones that best fit the needs of those you are teaching!

Included are these illustrated study pages that help you study the story of Esther.  It leads up to chapter four where Esther asks the people to fast for her.  It is such a fantastic story about gaining strength from fasting.

These study pages help you look at specific verses and answer questions as you go.  There are also tips throughout that will give them insights to specific parts of the story.  It is like having a seminary teacher whispering in their ear as they go.

These story sticks also come in this package and you can use these to teach or review the story of Esther.  You can use them as you tell the story, or you can teach the story and then ask those you are teaching to retell the story using the sticks.
