									Why do we give
gifts?

How do you feel when
someone gives you a gift?
When you become a member
of the church Heavenly Father
gives you a precious gift
Can’t be bought with money
Can’t hold it in our hands
or see it
Worth more than any other gift
Receive by the laying on of
hands
What is this
gift you
receive?


What do you
know about
the Holy
Ghost?

remission of sins

The Last Supper



The night before Jesus was crucified:
He ate one last supper with his friends
– the 12 apostles
He knew they would be sad after he
died
He knew they would need help
He promised to send someone to help
and comfort them.
John 14:26
But the comforter, which is
the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name,
he shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I
have said unto you.
What is another name for the
Comforter?
Song – “The Holy Ghost”
When Christ was on the earth,
He promised he would send
The Holy Ghost to comfort us,
Our true, eternal friend.
The Holy Spirit whispers with a still small voice.
He testifies of God and Christ and makes our hearts
rejoice.

And when we are confirmed
By sacred priesthood pow’r,
The Holy Ghost is giv’n to us
To guide us ev’ry hour.
Oh, may I always listen to that still small voice.
And with his light I’ll do what’s right each time I
make a choice.
We are like the Apostles

Holy ghost will comfort us
Companionship is greatest gift in our
life
He will help us make choices & guide
us
Help us when we are afraid or hurt

Help us know the truth
Jan had lived most of her
life in a small farming
town.




She loved the town and the people who
lived there.
Often Jan thought how wonderful it was
to live in a town that was so full of
friendly people.
 One day, Jan’s father
 came home from work.




He told the family that he was changing
his job.
They would be moving to a larger city.
How do you think Jan felt?
 Jan felt sad and upset
 each time she thought of
 moving.

It was hard for her to
think that soon she
was going to leave her
friends, home, school,
and ward behind.
Jan was worried. She wondered if she
would have a hard time making new
friends. What would her new home and
ward be like?
No one was able to help
her get rid of her worried
feelings.

Jan decided to pray
and ask Heavenly
Father for help.
Jan prayed with all her
heart.
As she prayed,
something
wonderful began to
happen.
All of the worried and
frightened feelings
started to go away.

Jan felt someone
was comforting her.

Who do you think was
comforting Jan?
Jan’s family moved
and she made
friends and loved
her new home.
We can all feel the Holy
Ghost if we but listen.

The first article of
faith tells about the
Holy Ghost.
How can you feel the
Holy Ghost?
Where would you not be able to
feel the Holy Ghost? Are there
places he won’t go?
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my
Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your
soul with _____________.” (D&C 11:13)

Holy Ghost, it will ___________ unto you all things what ye

 If you are worried about
 taking a test, what should
 you do? How will this help?

If you are in the mall and get
separated from your family,
what should you do? Is there
someone who can help you feel
comforted? How will this help?
If you someone asks if you would like to
go to their house but you don’t feel
good about it, who is it that is telling
you this?
  If you are performing in a
  play and are very afraid to
  go out on the stage, what
  should you do?
If you are going for a walk in the
woods and come to a place
where you are not sure which
way to turn and your map
doesn’t help, what should you
do?

The Holy Ghost will guide you but you
must always listen!
