How can I be guided by the Holy Ghost?

I Felt the Holy Ghost

Listening to the Spirit


1) I love to have children color ears and we fasten them to their ears with loose rubber bands. You could also leave a tag of paper at the top of them to fold over the back of their ear and fasten that way.  They really enjoy their big, colorful ears. Talk about listening to the Holy Ghost.

2) Drop a piece of paper. Really. Convince the children to be quiet and see if they can hear the paper hit the floor. If they can, because you have more than two gathered in the name of Christ, the Holy Ghost will feel thick and very discernible in the room. Once they can feel the difference and can feel the Holy Ghost, discuss why maybe they couldn't feel Him before. Were they trying to listen for Him before? Was the classroom too loud? Did they need to be more reverent?

3) Listen to a piece of music (Not the whole piece, just enough to get the point across. Little people aren't patient with classical music). Next let them hear the sound of an instrument, like a drum, flute, or violin. Then listen to the piece of music and have them raise their hands when they can hear the instrument play. They can hear that instrument when they couldn't before because they listened on purpose for it. Discuss how we need to listen on purpose for the whisper of the Holy Ghost. As we practice listening for it, we will hear the whisper more and more.

4) Make a box and take turns tossing it to see the different ways you can invite the Holy Ghost into your life.

5) Make a reverence mini book:

7) Match the words to the pictures. (Teacher will be doing all the reading):

8) Learn The Holy Ghost in American Sign language. To the right of the page there is a download link for this video song in ASL.

9) Make a mini book from the pictures in the article "Inviting the Sprit" By Hilary Watkins Lemon.

10) Read "How can I be guided by the Holy Ghost?" and color this horse coloring page:

11) Have a child make a mini book with these pictures:
Others beg for Nephi's release

12) Print these little pictures out, gather close on the floor, and have your children help you put them in the right sequence of events as they repeat the story back to you.
Others beg for Nephi's release
