The Theme for June Is:
"Let the Holy Spirit Guide" Hymn #143
I included the June Scripture Cards with the PDF.
Listen to and heed promptings from the Holy Ghost!
If we are open to those spiritual impressions,
the Lord will guide our lives.
We can trust Him. He will open the right doors, at the
right time, and in the right sequence.
To help family members understand the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Display a radio. Make sure it is not tuned in to a station.
Turn the radio on, and let the group hear the static for a moment.
Ask them what they would do if they were trying to get
(Tune in to a nearby station.) Begin to tune the radio.
Note that as you get closer to the station you get some information,
but it's in bits and pieces and a little fuzzy.
Completely tune the radio in.
Point out how strong and clear it is.
Liken this to tuning in to the Spirit.
If we draw close to our power
source, our Heavenly Father, and tune ourselves in spiritually,
we can receive the clear influence of the Holy Ghost.
(Included in the PDF)
Explain that there are several things we can do that will help us
"Tune In" to the Holy Ghost. This game will help the children
find out what those things are.
Print the PDF pictures of a star, a hand, a sun, and a house.
(The wordstrips are included in the PDF.)
Cut out the following wordstrips
and place them under the pictures:
Invite family members to come up and cross out the letters that
spell what the picture is. The letters that are left will tell
them what they must do or use to have the influence of the
Place the wordstrips face down. Take turns picking up a wordstrip.
Have the person decide how it can help them draw closer to the
Holy Ghost, and share their thoughts with the family.
Another Thing to Think About . . .
Compare the Holy Ghost to the Liahona.
Talk about how they work.
(Each work through OBEDIENCE)
Bear your testimony of how the Holy Ghost has helped and
guided you in your own life.
Here's the Family Home Evening PDF:
Now would be the perfect time to record these experiences
in your Family Home Evening Journal.
Give each person in your family a copy of the cards
included in the PDF to record their own experiences of how
listening to the promptings of the Holy Ghost has helped them.
Add the completed pages to your journal.
For Family Home Evening we ALWAYS
end with a game of
Red Light Green Light.
Which doesn't really have anything to do with the lesson
UNLESS . . .
You play using only whispers so they really have to listen,
Reminding them again, that to hear the promptings of the
Holy Ghost, you really have to be "Tuned In."
