One of my daughters is eager to learn her Articles of Faith since she learned in Primary today that there will be an ice cream party reward for the children who have learned their Articles. The party will be an activity day in August and for each Article of Faith each child learns they will be rewarded with one ice cream topping of their choice. The teachers are keeping track of each child’s progress in class.

My first thought was “I can’t think of thirteen different ice cream toppings I would want all on one sundae. All I need to be in sundae heaven is hot fudge, whipped cream, a few cherries and salty peanuts. Lots of salty peanuts and lots of hot fudge. In that case I need about five articles worth of peanuts and five articles worth of hot fudge. The whipped cream and the cherries each count for an article. Ok, the thirteen article of faith could be represented by chocolate chips.” So what do you want on your Articles of Faith ice cream sundae?

    Yummy. I could go for that too. But you didn’t name thirteen toppings. Does that mean you will “fudge” on memorizing all your Articles? 😉 Thanks for commenting, Darlene.
