can know when the Holy Ghost is helping me choose the right
Sing "The Holy Ghost" (p. 105) to review principles about the Holy Ghost.
Discuss John 14:26.
Ask, "Why is the Holy Ghost called a Comforter?"
To remind us of the security and
peace the Holy Ghost can bring us, have the children create a paper-quilt
reminder for the Primary room.
Give each child a square piece of paper marked into four squares and provide crayons.
Suggest that they use a different color to decorate each square.
Have them write their names in the
upper right square and then decorate it.
In the lower right square, have them draw pictures of something they can do to choose the right (pay tithing, read scriptures, obey the Word of Wisdom, and so on).
In the lower left square, have them write "CTR" or "Choose the Right" and decorate the square with shields or geometric shapes.
Before the children decorate the upper left square, have them read scriptures to review ways the influence of the Holy Ghost can be felt
(D&C 11:13 / "enlighten your mind";
D&C 88:3 / "abide in your hearts";
1 Ne. 17:45 / speak "in a still small voice").
Then, in that final square, have the children show how they will try to be more aware of the influence of the Holy Ghost by drawing a picture of their head, a heart, or an ear.
Now have the children wad their
papers into balls (to give the paper a fabric texture), then unwad and smooth
them out. Gather the papers and tape them together to form a Primary patchwork
Post it in the Primary room.
Bear testimony that the Holy Ghost
can help everyone who is worthy.
As children listen to and obey His promptings, they can continue to receive His guidance.
Sing "The Still Small Voice" (pp. 106–7).
