“Lesson 6: ‘I Will Tell You in Your Mind and in Your Heart, by the Holy Ghost’” Doctrine and Covenants and Church History Class Member Study Guide (1999)


  • Read D&C 8:2–3 and D&C 85:6. What do these verses teach about how the Holy Ghost communicates with us? Why is it important to understand this principle of how the Holy Ghost communicates?

  • What did the Lord reveal to Oliver Cowdery about his desire for a “further witness” of the Prophet’s divine mission? (See D&C 6:22–23.) How can we become more trusting of the peace that the Spirit speaks to our minds?

  • Why should we submit our will to God’s will when we seek personal revelation?

  • How can we discern whether a revelation has come from God? (See D&C 11:12–14; 50:23–24.)
