Feeling the Holy Ghost

And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things (Moroni 10:5).
  1. 1.

    Benson, where are you? It’s time for bed.

  2. 2.

    I don’t want to go to bed.

    Why not?

    Because there is a ghost in my room.

  3. 3.

    There is not a ghost in your room.

    Are you sure?

    I promise.

  4. 4.

    Dad, what is the Holy Ghost?

    That’s a good question.

  5. 5.

    The Holy Ghost is a member of the Godhead. His job is to help us feel what Heavenly Father wants us to know and do.

    Do we see Him?

    No, but we feel Him near. He helps us feel happy.

  6. 6.

    All right, now close your eyes. It’s time to go to sleep. I love you.

    I love you too. And I think I feel the Holy Ghost.

Helps for Parents: Talk with your children about some of the ways they can feel the influence of the Holy Ghost. Ask them how they feel when they choose the right and do things that invite the Holy Ghost to be near.
