The Holy Ghost is the
third member of the Godhead
(Friend Aug 2005, suggestion # 1)
Help the children memorize the first article of faith.
Teach the principle of the Godhead.
Use GAK pictures:
to teach that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are resurrected beings with bodies of flesh and bone.
The Holy Ghost is a personage of spirit (see
The Holy Ghost witnesses of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
Sing "I Know My Father Lives" (p. 5).
What do we need to do to gain a testimony from the Holy Ghost?
Invite a recent convert, missionary, or ward member to
relate the witness of the Holy Ghost in his or her own life.
Or retell in your own words the story "Micah's Miracle" (Friend, Oct. 2002, 4–6).
Discuss what the characters in the story did to gain a testimony from the Holy Ghost.
Copy pictures from the GAK that show children keeping the commandments, such as:
Choose a picture for each letter in the word "testimony."
Write one letter on the back of each picture and post them on the board in order.
Invite a child to turn over one of the letters and tell what is happening in the picture.
Ask the children to think of ways or times they also do the things illustrated in the picture.
How does that activity help their testimonies grow?
Take responses and reinforce the principles with songs from the Children's Songbook.
Continue until all the pictures are revealed.
Sing "Seek the Lord Early" (p. 108).
