The Still Small Voice
One of the most important things we can teach our children is to recognize, and respond to, the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost can calm our fears and comfort us when we are grieving. The Holy Ghost guides us and directs us in our decisions. The Holy Ghost testifies of Jesus Christ and reveals and teaches the truth of all things. And, the Holy Ghost can protect us from physical and spiritual danger. We hope that this lesson will be helpful to you as you strive to teach these vital truths to your children!
