Keepers at home in past generations considered the skill of making soap a necessity. They did not have the convenience of shopping at local stores as we do. For us, making soap is not a necessity, but it is still a very nice skill to possess. Homemade soaps can be made free of the many harsh chemicals found in commercially made soaps. They can be made with added oils for moisturizers. Pretty colors can be added along with scents for fragrance. There are even pretty soap molds to make shaped soaps. It is fun to make soap that cleans, smells good, and is good for our skin!

This is our first year actively utilizing the Keepers of the Faith Curriculum. We are doing the girls and boys in our church home school group. One of the greatest things for us is that we were able to incorporate other church members in the teaching of the curricula. For instance, one of our elder ladies is teaching the hand sewing, our pastor's wife is teaching sign language, a Spanish member is teaching the foreign language, etc. It exposes our children to a variety of leaders within our church, new interests, and utilizes talents of others.
